            Staff was very nice - even though I got in the Elite Members line and didnt realize it until later (they didnt tell me to go to the other line) they just took care of me no problem. I was impressed. I booked my reservation on and somehow there was a problem with finding my reservation. Again, they took care of it no problem, made the call and figured it out. They didnt stress, so I didnt stress. I'll come back. the gym was wonderful too.

            Very close to everything, staff was helpful, we were able to check in early which was great after arriving on the train at 11 am. It was a great experience.

            We've always loved the Downtown Marriott. It is the only hotel where we way while we stay in Chicago. This time we were especially impressed with kindness/helpfulness of the staff.

            For some unprecedented reason, we had a lot of trouble trying to find a street that would take us to the Ohio entrance to the hotel.

            I wish the room was a little bigger, other than that it was great!

            It was conveniently located near my conference location. The conference location was "sold out" and I was directed to consider the Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile. It was an excellent experience for the purpose of my visit. The majority of my stay was spent at the conference center, so I did not get to enjoy the many features of your hotel. Based on my check-in experience, cleanliness of my room, and service...I would definitely return.

            Lobby bar. Friendly staff. Convenient location. Great view.

            Very family oriented. Felt like living in a mcdonalds. Very small room and bathroom. No place to smoke away from children and other nonsmokers.

            Excellent location, friendly and efficient staff

            Although my reservation stated wifi is free throughout the hotel, they're actually charging nearly $15/day for use in the room. The hotel claimed they're not responsible for the booking agency mistakes, but ended up waiving the wifi fee for me as a Marriott Rewards member.
