Step onto the Magnificent Mile from comfortable Chicago hotel
Not many hotels in downtown Chicago boast a location where guests just step onto the Magnificent Mile from the hotel. Top stores, popular restaurants, hot nightlife and world-class museums are all within walking distance. Guests find comfort in the Marriott’s signature style, starting with a gleaming lobby, an enormous glass ceiling and Art Deco-inspired seating. At the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile hotel, a sense of grandeur prevails.
Highlights
  • Fitness center and indoor pool overlooking Chicago
  • Harvest restaurant, Lobby Bar & Lounge, full-service Starbucks
  • AAA 3 Diamonds
Rooms
Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile hotel rooms and suites take dramatic cues from the rest of the hotel with scroll patterned-carpeting, club and lounge chairs in jewel tones and tantalizing city views. Pillow-top mattresses, HD TVs and ergonomic work stations lend more comfort to the spaces. All rooms are wired for high-speed and wireless Internet access for an additional fee. "Fit for You" in-room fitness kits are available upon request.
Features
The Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile hotel is one of a handful of hotels in downtown Chicago with an indoor pool, and even rarer still, one that offers a peek into the skyline.  The pool is attached to the fitness center, which features cardio equiment, treadmills and free weights. Towels are provided.

Guests have a number of choices for dining and drinking on site, including Harvest restaurant, which serves American fare, the Lobby Bar & Lounge and a full-service Starbucks coffee house.

The Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile hotel was built to host events of any size. Ballrooms, executive boardrooms and suites cater to large groups in visually appealing settings with lofty ceilings and bright colors.

Prime Location!!

This hotel is in the PERFECT location if you have never been to Chicago. A short walk in any direction and you are where you want to go. Navy Pier, CloudGate, and the Water Tower district are all just minutes away. There are excellent breakfast locations just minutes from the door. Dinner in the loop is a nice evening walk. The area is extremely safe (and we were there during NATO). The architecture of the area is beautiful. If I were to go back to Chicago I wouldn't look at other hotels, I'd reserve with Marriott again without thinking about it.

Good for shopping

Very good hotel, excellent location. Rooms are large and neat. My only complaint is that you can hear conversations from other rooms. It is also a bit expensive.

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.

Great Hotel-BUT

A very nice hotel-but why does a Quality property like this have to resort to "nickel & diming" guests. To pay for internet in room after paying TOP DOLLAR for Hotel Room just doesn't make cents. In addition, two (2) local calls to order a pizza added another couple of bucks onto the room tab. I'm a "Marriott" fan-but this was just EXCESSIVE. Great Location, but I won't be back.
