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.

best location

Loved being right on Magnificent Mile. Great restaurants nearby. Our room's air was broken. They did fix it, so we were only inconvenienced one night.

Great location

Great location, great hotel - for $500 a night I expected to not have to pay $14 per day for internet. Seems pretty stingy to me. Otherwise a great hotel

Time to renovate

Old tired dark and dingy.. The room was very dreary. Even if it was clean it didn't feel clean. The hallways were also very dark and uninviting.

Shopping Getaway

We picked this hotel because of the location and we weren't disappointed. And it turned out to be a great hotel within walking distance to all the places we wanted to see in a short period of time. While the rooms were on the small side I didn't plan on staying inside my room so it didn't really matter. With that being said, there were 4 of us in our room and it was extremely hot. There was no way to turn the temperature down to make it any cooler. We had it on 48 and it never got cooler. On top of that there was no exhaust fan in the bathroom so between showering you had to let it cool off just so the next person could get in. All in all I would stay here again because it was a good hotel with a competent staff and an ideal location. We took advantage of the self park to save us some shopping money and it was close to the hotel so it worked out great.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Rockit Bar & Grill is located at 22 W Hubbard. This is a great place to sit and watch a game or just dine on not your typical bar food. The DJ is pretty good too!

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.
