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.

The neighborhood around the Marriott Downtown Hotel Chicago calls out to sporting enthusiasts, offering quick access to sailing and fishing at the nearby shores of Lake Michigan, and fitness trails at Milton Lee Olive Park to the east.

Bachlorette party

My hotel experience at the Marriott on Michigan Ave. was terrible! We had a guaranteed 4pm check in time. Our room was not available until after 5pm, making us late for an important event. We requested 2 double beds they gave us one king bed w a sofa couch that had no sheets on it, and the mattress was filthy. There was garbage in the garbage can upon arrival and not nearly enough fresh towels for the 3 people occupying the room. The manager did absolutely nothing upon arrival to help get us into a room. The location is great, but would never stay at this hotel again.

Fantastic weekend in Chicago

This was our first trip to Chicago and it was perfect. The hotel,was very comfortable and our room was ready for us by 11 a.m. Being able to,have breakfast in the lobby, or a snack or drink later was very convenient. We spent 2 days exploring the Magnificient Mile,just steps away, which was gorgeous with the hundreds of blooming tulips. We spent time at the Art Institute,the Aquarium,and the Bean. The River architectural tour is not to be missed Definitely planning a return trip.

Nice hotel

I booked one night here. The rooms are nicely furnished, but small. The bathroom is very small. It was quiet and did everything a room should. Great location, staff was very helpful.

Great service, @ a price. Not for your average traveler. Worth it if your on the company dime or looking for some tax write off.
