Overall wonderful experience at this Courtyard hotel. The staff at every level was friendly and welcoming here. The three items I would say I missed during this stay were: great beds (these were not), a microwave on our floor, and an in room safe. We were walking distance to restaurants, the downtown sites and the waterfront Parks. Cab to MSI...

The location of this hotel couldn't be better, situated just North of the Chicago River and two blocks away from Michigan Ave this is the perfect spot in Chicago. From the hotel you can easily walk to Michigan Ave and The Loop. If you are up to it you can even walk to Navy Pier and even the Field Museum...

The location is very convenient to downtown experiences but we wanted to get out and make the loop around Lake Michigan. Unfortunately we had not rented a car in advance. The morning desk clerk, Tabatha, went the extra mile to have a rental car delivered right to the hotel doorstep! She made a lasting impression on us and a positive...

This hotel was great. 2 blocks off Michigan Avenue right in the heart of good shopping and eating. Rooms were very nice and spacious - "Rain" showers, couches in the room. Every room comes equipped with a mini-fridge which is nice. Valet is $57/day which is well worth it, including in/out privileges. There were only a few downsides: #1 -...

I booked this hotel with zero knowledge about Chicago. Honestly I just had Marriott points to burn. It turned out to be perfect. Great room, a bit small, but for my family of three it was fine.
