Older hotel but great location

The hotel had run out of pillows the first night. We were told to take 2 pillows from the master bedroom so my kids had a pillow to use. Also, in the bathroom shower were used bars of soap and a used shampoo container. Called housekeeping to come and clean our shower. Complained to manager the next day and a day he told me that after reviewing the facts with his staff, my complaints were deemed legitimate so he gave me a $40 discount for the first night. I had to ask for the room discount! Only One of 2 main lobby elevators was working for 5 days we were there. Renovating breakfast area so they delivered food every morning. Food was good but it was the same every day-scrambled eggs, hash brown patty, english muffin, sausage patty, muffin, apple and juice. Need some variety. Rooms are old and air conditioning needs to be modernized! location is great! 2 blocks from Michigan Ave. also for the last night of our stay they wanted to charge us an extra $200 for the same room. Manager would not negotiate this fee so we checked out and went to a cheaper hotel! Valet parking was $60/night but if you ask, there is a self park up the street for $42/night. Would not stay there again!

Girls weekend

Pros: I loved the location. We felt very safe walking at night.
Cons: The bedroom could be re-done to make space for an actual bathroom with the sink, shower, toilet. Closet space could be reduced to add sq footage.
Location: There is tons of shopping in every price range. Museums are also near by. Theatre dinning etc.
The room was very comfortable and clean. It was pleasantly decorated. The breakfast was quite nice with a nice variety.

Awesome location just a block from Michigan Avenue & Lakeshore Drive. We arrived at 10 am and we were able to check in because our room was ready which was a huge plus! Convenient valet parking and staff was friendly and helpful. We had a the 2 bedroom suite with kitchen which was perfect for 6. Would most definitely stay here again!

A great hotel in a great location

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
We stayed 5 nights at the Residence by Marriott and will recommend it to all our friends and family. The location can't be beaten for touring Chicago. The suites are large and beautifully furnished with everything you could need. The complimentary breakfast buffet had everything you could want and changed daily. We didn't even make use of the midweek happy hours and free dinner foods. Staff was very helpful. O.K., it wasn't perfect: the elevators are kind of slow.

We were delighted! Couldn't believe the value for the price!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
We loved the convenience of being close to downtown and staying in this top quality, beautifully maintained hotel. The staff were courteous and helpful. The rooms were spectacular. The hot breakfast was extraordinary. Seriously, I cannot imagine anything better and we will certainly stay here again when we come to Chicago next time.

Building had nice solid and safe feeling.

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet
I didn't realize how expensive parking was in the area, so I'd come back and use public transportation for my visit. Very convenient for walking and busses to area museums and shopping.

Very friendly reception!

I stayed the entire week -- Monday - Friday. The hotel staff that I ran into were very friendly. The hotel put out water and dog bones out front -- which I thought was a nice touch given a lot of neighborhood dogs (and guest's dogs, too) were always around. The only *very* minor nitpicks are as follows: * Monday, I found coffee filter still in the machine from previous guest * Not owning a microwave, I was not able to figure out the machine, and there were n obvious instructions. But they promptly sent up a staff person who quickly showed me that I first had to press the non-obvious "Type II Cook" button * Thursday, they forgot to replace the microwave popcorn and the coffee * My bath towel was always washed no matter where I hung it
