Marriott Chicago at Medical District/UIC

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Workers were friendly and very helpful. Their is a shuttle bus who can take you a few places. I recommend bringing your own drinks because they are pricey at the hotel.

Not the nicest Marriott I've been in but it has convenient location and a friendly staff.

The hotel is very nice and one of the few in this area. Close to United ctr for Hawks/ Bulls games. Also a short shuttle ride to plenty of dinning in little italy area of Chicago. Only issue we had was the toilet had some serious flushing issues going on>>>>>we mentioned it to the desk clerk and he apologized, but for the hassle of it all,I would have thought he might have discounted the room rate a little. Still a nice place with a friendly staff.

Nice, quiet hotel with a very accommodating staff. They even have a shuttle that will drop you at nearby festivals, etc. Room was very clean and had modern decor. We stayed here while attending Pitchfork music festival at Union Park. The shuttle dropped us off and we actually walked back afterwards.

Not the best but was a good location to be in Chicago

Our only issue was the fact that they charge for wireless, which I know lots of hotels do, but we feel that it is taking advantage with add-ons.

A few things I liked were (in no particular order): 1. Hotel staff: friendly, helpful, caring 2. Location: Convenient for what I had to do 3. Security: a safe place to stay 4. Environment: clean, restful, pleasant Marriott once again lives up to its name and positive reputation.

Upon arrival, I found a wet soap and what appeared to be a used soap in the "new" soap box. The hotel "shuttle" was a small SUV, We waited for over an hour for a ride back to the hotel from the United Center. My sister and I who are from out of state finally walked back to the hotel alone at 11 pm in Chicago. The shuttle drove by two times with people they had picked up at random places other than the designated "pick up" place for the shuttle. The hotel staff had no response to our experience upon our return to the hotel. I would not stay there again.

Check-in was easy, staffis friendly staff, hotel is clean, location close to UIC and about 15 minutes from downtown area.

Great location in Chicago. Easy to find food and easy use of public transportation. Staff is very friendly and helpful

Excellent staff at front desk and in the cafe. Good services.

Great hotel!!! I will stay in the same hotel in future visits to Chicago

Great it had a shuttle

none

I chose the hotel due it's close proximity to the dental school. As soon as I walked in, I was greeted with an unfriendly staffer at the front desk. Apparently she was some kind of supervisor, I do not see how she ever got that position. When we walked in and informed her of our reservation she did not wait a second before telling us that our reservation was "declined", though I had booked 3 weeks prior to arrival at the hotel. When I told her that was "impossible" she headed to her manager, TWICE, and then only had the decency to say that, "it was a mistake". She did not even apologize. We were exhausted from our travel and that was the first thing she said to us? It was absurd, we were not impressed at all and made it clear that we were not!! When we went up to our room , we saw an extra bed, which they were under the impression that we had requested. We were only two people, and there was no need for a third bed. Like I said we were not impressed in the least and thus we spent most f our time out of the hotel and away from the ladt at the front desk!!! Should I go back to Chicago, there is noway I will stay at that hotel again.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the entire facility was clean and modern, and the turkey sandwich in the restaurant was actually delicious! This hotel is about 1.5 miles outside of downtown Chicago -- a long walk but a quick cab ride. There aren't very many restaurants in the area but the hotel restaurant is surprisingly good. The only negative thing I can think of is that they didn't replace the disposable coffee cups after I used them up -- obviously very minor. Overall I definitely recommend this hotel.

Great location for my work at the hospital. Staff was friendly, efficient, and attentive. Room service was fine, as was the restaurant.

Overall, the staff were very pleasant and helpful with ideas of things to do around town, and how to get there. The rooms were clean and I was pleasantly surprised with how comfortable the beds were. However, the water pressure was terrible and it felt more like light rain than a shower. The free shuttle will take you anywhere within a 1-mile radius of the hotel, unfortunately, most attractions are more than 1-mile away. However, the reason we stayed here is because it's very close to the United Center and the shuttle worked out perfectly for that. We tried to order breakfast by filling out the card and placing it on our door as the directions said -- while the card disappeared from our door, the breakfast never arrived the next morning. We did eat in hotel dining room, and the bartender was very helpful and courteous. The food was priced decently, but tasted okay -- it's fine for a late lunch as we had. Overall, I recommend the hotel, but don't expect to be in walking distance of many actual 'attractions' and expect to get familiar with the L or taking cabs.

Experience was very good, however I was very disappointed that I was not told that parking wasn't included and cost me an additional $28.00.

Only needed this hotel for one night. Found the hotel very quiet and easy to get to my bussiness meeting. The beds were very cofortable. Everyone in the hotel was very nice.
