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

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.

Great Staff Makes for Great Stay

This hotel is in a great location, right beside the Northbridge/Nordstrom Mall and the Magnificent Mile. Check in was great and we got into our room early. The room was very nice, but unfortunately, the room was right below their laundry and across the hall from the elevator. The noise varied all night as the laundry washers and dryers spun, which was worse than a constant noise. We notified the management the next day and they moved us to a much better room so our second night was restful. The great staff work continued when I found I had left my scarf in the first room on our checkout day and they found it immediately and it had been bagged, labeled and cataloged so it could be found. Their main lobby area was large and when rain kept us from touring we settled down with our books and enjoyed our last afternoon waiting for the train back home. Again, great location, great service, and when we had a problem a great effort to resolve it. Still, I think they have very few rooms with problems, but if you get one just identify your problem.

The best part of the hotel was the great central location that it was in. Shopping, restaurants and the subway station are all right there.

Excellent hotel in magnificent location

The location could not have been better, we were right in the heart of the magnificent mile. And magnificent it was. The hotel was great, I have no complaints. And the price was right. This is where I'll stay if I return to Chicago.
