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.

Last Minute Getaway for Spring Break

We went to Chicago for a one night trip for our Children's spring break and the booking of the hotel went fast and easy no issues there. Getting into the hotel was a nightmare due to heavy traffic and a very small receiving area for the entry way for valet and dropping off luggage. Registration was fine except there was a long line to wait but the staff was very friendly and answered all our questions. The facilty itself was great and the accomodations were nice yet a bit cramped for 4 people. Checkout went smoothly and we ate in the restuarnt for breakfast and the breakfast was great and friendly.

Holiday weekend

We had one problem upon arrival - the room we received only had one king bed and their were 4 of us. When we called the desk - the staff bent over backwards to find us a room that accomodated all 4 of us. They were at 92% capacity - but did find us a room! I cannot say enough about the staff. They really bent over backwards. We had a great stay

Great location and atmosphere

Our family enjoyed the pool and fitness center! the location could not have been better; convenient to all the bus routes, Nordstroms, Water Tower, restaurants, etc...Lego store next door was a big hit. Restaurant for breakfast buffet was very nice, great selection. Our room was a little small as it was next to the elevator. Overall, I would recommend this hotel. We will definitely come back here.

"Unbeatable location for the price"

You have to stay at this hotel to understand the level of comfort in terms of, convenience to attraction, easy access to any type of food, and the view, especially if you are facing Michigan Avenue.

pros: Nice working distance from anywhere in Chicago downtown. cons: You have to pay extra for the internet access. Parking per day is about $33 which is another extra.
