Whenever my family comes to town this is the hotel of choice. The rooms are roomy and equipped with a mini fridge and microwave. The staff never fails to impress us we have always been able to check in early and the front desk will hold your bags after check out.

The hotel has a great location in downtown Chicago. Very easy to walk and get around town. The rooms were nice and on par with what I expect from a Courtyard. The only reason why I wouldn't highly recommend this hotel is the noise level in the room. It was very loud - we could hear everything that was happening...

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago. It is hard to come to Chicago and not stop by to have their delicious dee dish pizza. Yes, you have to come with time (they don't take reservations and wait time has always been around 45 min) but the wait is worthy!! Supper Veggie is my favorite pizza.

I stayed here for 2 nights while in Chicago on business and it's one of my least favourite business hotels I've ever stayed at. Pros: - Value/price is reasonable for downtown Chicago. - Location is great. Cons: - Very loud at night - you can hear trucks, cars, etc all through the night. The hotel needs to replace its windows...

I stayed at this Marriott property in Chicago and I had a truly an amazing time. Very helpful staff members and a nice gym facility.

Nice spot close to lots of restaurants and the subway red line. Hotel itself is very basic but has amenities you want. Our room was quiet and on upper floors so nice, especially being in downtown. Restaurant on site it bit different than most Courtyards so nice touch and the donut shop "Glazed and Infused" on the ground floor has...

The location is great but the Fire house is near by try and get a room on the Hubbard side it's a little quieter. The Doughnut shop and restaurant are very good. It's your standard courtyard room clean and comfortable. Overall it's a good place to stay sans the street noise
