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.

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.

Weekend in Chicago

The hotel was in a perfect location but the room was mediocre. It was the most uncomfortable bed we had ever slept in and one of the smallest bathrooms. Since we were sharing this room with our adult daughter the bathroom size was a major issue. It would have been too small for just the two of us. Also the pillows were the size of postage stamps and the lobby area was really loud.

Great location for shopping and eating out.

The room seemed a little small, but clean, comfortable, and great view of the city. We stayed during a dance competiition that was hosted at the hotel. It was crowded in the elevators, lobby, and bar area.

The Rainforest Cafe is close to the hotel, but would not reccomend for young children. My children were very afraid of the sounds and mechanical animals.

We will not stay here again. Or any Marriott for that matter.

The room was unbelievably hot. The inabilty of the Marriott to provide a comfortably heated room is just unacceptable in the 21st Century. We were given a fan to use and 2 free cups of Starbucks for our inconvenience. We are not planning any other stays with Marriott Hotels based on this terrible experience. The drop down below does not include the year 2013.
