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.

Awesome Family Trip

It was my first visit to Chicago with my family, so we didn't really know what we were going to do yet. Luckily this hotel's location couldn't be more perfect. It was very easy for us to get to the heart of the city. However, we were a bit disappointed with the size of the room. It looks so much bigger on the picture, and the bathroom could use a little touch of new design.

Very pleased

This was our first stay here. Staff was very friendly, room was clean and about the same size as other hotels we've stayed in before. Great location right on michigan ave. Price was one of the lowest I found which is why I tried a new place and I definitely was not disappointed. Will stay again.

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.

Wonderful weekend on the magnificent mile!

Beautiful room with fantastic views of the city, a very comfortable bed, courteous and helpful staff, Starbucks, great bar, pool, and a delicious brunch. All this plus a great location, within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, and attractions.
