This place is great for those on business, there aren't many crowds as it's far from shopping areas, and there's access to the El line so you can go straight to and from O'Hare Airport.

  • 10.0

    The service was awesome and the location was excellent!!!

  • 9.2

    The View of the river was spectacular! The staff couldn't be friendlier and location great. Cabs always waiting, or sights were within walking distance.

    Currently under remodeling, but the staff tried to make it accommodating. No free WIFI, but if you sign up for a free membership to Marriot then the WIFI was free, so we did.

  • 10.0

    Beautiful view, nice room and service. We loved it.

    The internet is too expensive.

  • 10.0

    Even while undergoing major renovations, this place is fabulous! Can't wait to see the new look.

    The only negative is the lack of (free) Wi-Fi. Never paid for it and never will.

  • 7.0

    Walking distance to a lot of restaurants and entertainment venues. River view rooms are worth the extra money.

    TV issues. The remote didn't work well and some of the channels kept breaking up. No free wifi. Bed was uncomfortable.

  • 7.4

    View of river and closeness to everything downtown

    Problems with shower when we first arrived. Refrigerator didn't get very cold.
