Unfit facilities/conditions

Pros: Staff is very friendly. Housekeeping staff is helpful.
Cons: Needs updated to compete with other chains/hotels in the area.
Location: Lots to do in downtown Chicago-shopping/movies/navy pier, etc
For the price-this was absolutely the biggest disappointment. We needed to stay downtown for my daughter's volleyball tournament and were forced to pay the high prices, but looked at it as a chance to enjoy the downtown environment. The refrigerator did not cool, the wall electricity outlets were not functional, low-quality wi-fi, no HDTV and the tv in the bedroom did not work.It was VERY noisy place to stay as well being located in the bar district so lots of night-life and noise! My advice-stay away from this hotel-the staff is very friendly but the facilities/location are not conducive to families or rest! I should have believed the online reviews that I did read ahead of time!

Nice location.

Got there before noon and received a top floor room. We were received very warmly from the doorman to the lobby staff. This hotel is in a good location across from one of our favorite restaurants. My only complaint is the window air conditioning unit, as with any hotel with a window unit, becomes an irritant at night.

Great location!

Pros: Great staff!!
Cons: More vanity space in room and an additional mirror in the sleeping area.
Location: Excellent location, with in walking distance to most areas of interest.
This hotel is within walking distance to most attractions. The staff was awesome! They were great help in printing directions and giving suggestions on dining. The only draw back is the vanity area in the room is very small, it makes it hard for more than 1 person to get ready at a time. There should be an additional mirror in the sleeping area to accommodate multiple people. As far as location, I don't think you can go wrong with this choice.

Hotel is centrally located in downtown Chicago and staff is friendly/mostly helpful. Difficult to adjust temperature setting in room. Not convinced price is worth it compared to other Marriott properties nearby providing breakfast.
