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.

  • Harvest restaurant, Lobby Bar & Lounge, full-service Starbucks

"Fit for You" in-room fitness kits are available upon request.

Perfect 3rd Birthday Getaway

The hotel was beautiful and the staff was excellent. My 3 year old loved the place as well as her mother and grandmother. We will definitely be back to the same place next year.

Great location

The hotel was the perfect choice in it was easy walking from the theater district and State Street as well as being able to get to Water Town and the shows along Michigan. Also, very easy walk from the South Shore Line drop point at Randolph and Michigan/Millennium Park. Staff was very gracious even though the hotel was packed with Christmas events. Would definitely go back this place. Loved it.

Chicago! What a great place!

It's is a great town. We were impressed by how everyone was friendly, and helpful. We asked a lot of people where to go, and how to get there (both the hotel staff and locals on the street). Everyone was able and willing to answer our questions. The downtown area was safe and easy to walk to almost everything. We attended the Cubs/Twins game on Saturday so we rode the L-train to Wrigleyville. It was easy and we didn't have to worry about where to park or if we would be stuck in traffic. The Marriott was right in the middle of everything, and only 2 blocks from where to board the L-train. Our only regret is that we didn't stay another day. Allow yourselves at least an hour to get into the downtown area (traffic). Be patient, it is worth it!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Eat early to avoid the waiting. The best Pizza places have about an hour or two waiting list. We ate at 5:00 pm the first night and got in right away, and 6:00 pm the second night and had to wait 1 hour. By the time we were done eating the waiting list was 2 hours. Go online to get a map of Chicago's downtown area, and what is available to you. You will find the best restaurants that range from inexpensive to high end dining to keep you in budget. It also tells you the dress code required for each. Do your homework ahead of time to save time and make sure you don't miss out on anything that is available. The only downside is that the restaurants serving liquor (which was many of the ones we wanted to go to) did not allow anyone under 21 inside after 8 pm. Our son is 20, which limited us to where we could go. We should've waited one more year to go.
