Clean hotel

Clean hotel, close to amenities. Very secure, felt very safe. Starbucks in hotel was nice. Parking garage narrow, but found surface parking close for less. Only drawbacks were, close to hospital, so heard lots of sirens and no microwave in the room.

Great for Cubs games.

Pros: Great location. Very easy to grab cabs. Sleek, modern rooms. Friendly staff. Fabulous showers!
Cons: Better pillows! Better deal with onsite parking. Better stocking of the "Market" area as it's the only food onsite after 10pm.
Location: LOTS of shopping within walking distance. Easy to grab a cab and get to Wrigley Field quickly. Lots of great choices for meals.
For my birthday this year my best friend and I spent a couple nights in Chicago so we could attend two Cubs games. I chose this hotel because of it's location, and the other reviews. We very much enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly and were very quick with the answers to the questions we asked. (We needed recommendations for eating, needed a bit of help with transportation, and asked for a late checkout). Loved the doorman who not only grabbed us a cab but celebrated the Cubs win with us when we got back from the game! My only (minor) issues were, there were a few cobwebs in our room, some crumbs on the carpet, as well as an icky looking stain on the bathroom floor. For what we paid (and the location) one would think the rooms would be spotless. Also the pillows were HORRIBLE! Both my friend and I ended up with stiff, sore necks! We travel a lot and end up with a lot of those weird, flat hotel pillows, but these were the worst by far. The AC unit was placed in such a way that the curtains essentially blocked all the cool air, and after being out in the warm, sunny weather it was a bit of a bummer to come back to a room barely cooled. Other than that the room was modern and nice, sleek and had a great view. We were sad to leave behind the amazing shower! We did wish there had been later room service (it ended at 10pm) but there were many great restaurants in the area that delivered. We would use this hotel again if we get the chance to go back for another visit.

Great overall choice

Pros: everything
Location: Next to the shops and restaurants galore.
We had stayed in this hotel before and it didn't disappoint this time either. Great location, clean, quite room, very comfortable bed, garage right next door so no need for valet.

Great Location

Pros: The rooms where very quiet (except for sirens) and the beds were great. The business center was good.
Cons: The elevators required some special skill set many people lacked. It became kind of a joke.
Location: Dine at Labriola. The pizza was great. We're not shoppers, but the shopping on Michigan Avenue was convenient.
The Courtyard is centrally located for shopping and dining in a very walkable neighborhood. It is a few blocks from Navy Pier, the Chicago River, and everything those locations have to offer. Its location makes it easy to head back to the hotel for a break in mid day. If you don't want to walk, the Hop On Hop Off double-decker bus stop #10 is a mere three and a half blocks away, and the tour is a lovely way to get to know the City and its vast cultural offerings. I would recommend the Courtyard and plan to stay there onmy next visit.

Close to restaurants and shopping.

Miserable sofa bed. Daughter loved the pool. Would stay again for the price and location but never again book a room with a sofa bed.

Amazing staff!

You're front desk staff took great care of my family of five just downtown for a holiday party. They thought we would be more importable in adjoining rooms and very kindly offered that option to us. Of course we were thrilled. I thought the lobby looked beautiful. There were only very minor things I would change...dirty carpets against the wall by trash and looked as if someone had miss d when they threw their coffee away. Also the beds are a bit uncomfortable, mattresses are not high quality.
