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.

unbeatable price for the room

We visited the museums and Michigan Ave. I would suggest to include tickets to some main attraction w/hotel. If this is done, I would consider staying again at this hotel.

Great view, great location

The hotel was located right on the Magnificent Mile giving us access to most of Chicago's must see places and restaurants. The people were happy to help and very nice. They even gave us our room for an extra hour at checkout and held our luggage for a couple hours so we did not have to lug it around while waiting for our flight out. I would definitely stay there again, no question.

Take the free trolley to Navy Pier at the corner of Rush and Grand, almost right outside the door of the Marriott Mag mile.

Great location

This hotel is centrally located in dwontown Chicago close to the Institute of Art for a daily excursion and numerous Jazz clubs and bars for the nightly adventures. The rooms were typical Marriott, very clean with newer beds and furniture. Overall, we would return without hesitation.

Awesome location, great staff

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, hotel was very clean. Room was a little small, but we didn't need it to be bigger since we weren't in the room most of the time. We will definitely stay there again.

Great Walking Chicago Tour

The Hotel was a fantastic deal. We stayed 5 nights and and the location was perfect. We had great views, easy access to trains, buses, and taxi's. We also walked all over with no problem. Rooms were very clean, Staff was very friendly. The room was just right, since we spent very little time in the room. If you go to Chicago to spend lots of time in the room with room service etc., this may not be your best pick.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

We have eaten at Giordano's, UNO and Gino's East, and would recommend Giordano's. Pizza was better and eventhough it was very crowded and took about 45 min to get a seat, experience was far more enjoyable. We were also surprised that Gino's was more expensive.

The good and the bad

The hotel was very clean, staff friendly, and location fantastic! If you are looking for a hotel with a real antique feel, then this is the place for you. The only main complaint was that I was already paying a hefty price just to stay there, and when I wanted to use the gym, I only realized then that I had to pay an additional $18/day for gym access. Other than that, no complains.
