From the showpiece color-changing light feature behind the lobby bar, to the Art Deco-inspired lines of the Grand Staircase, the Marriott Chicago Downtown Magnificent Mile hotel welcomes guests with a splash. Get online anywhere with Wi-Fi throughout the hotel (fees may apply), while starting or ending your day with American cuisine fresh from the Midwest farm at the Harvest restaurant. There's a Starbucks on-site for those who need that caffeine fix in the morning as well.  Swim across the glassy surface of the indoor pool, or take the gym back to your room with a Fitness Kit, after a long day in the boardroom or out exploring.

Just OK

Our room was very small and the bed was not very comfortable. The hotel itself was a good location for all that we had planned.

Good vibes, atmosphere, but no creature comforts

Great bar, good staff, fair food. Great pool and exercise area.. But the bed was one of the worst I have ever slept (or not slept) on. The bar was very pricey, altho staff was great. All in all, ok if you're on an expense account and can get a good massage when you get home. On the whole the advantages and disadvantages pretty much cancelled each other out, would depend on the traveler type:if young, tough, and rich, go for it. If you have a greater need for comfort and economy, then skip it.

too hot for comfort

We had our A/C set at 63 degrees and the room was sooooo unbearably HOT. Maintainance came up and looked at the A/C and said that the hotel had put on the heat due to the temp decreasing outside. We had to open a window on the 16th floor to cool off the room.It was the most uncomfortable night of sleep. We were soaked with sweat all night.

Weekend in Chicago

The hotel was in a perfect location but the room was mediocre. It was the most uncomfortable bed we had ever slept in and one of the smallest bathrooms. Since we were sharing this room with our adult daughter the bathroom size was a major issue. It would have been too small for just the two of us. Also the pillows were the size of postage stamps and the lobby area was really loud.

Great location

Great location, great hotel - for $500 a night I expected to not have to pay $14 per day for internet. Seems pretty stingy to me. Otherwise a great hotel
