Had a really nice stay here. Rooms were clean and well appointed - shout out to housekeeping on their prompt, friendly, and thorough service. Staff overall was very friendly and accommodating. Club lounge was really nice and the breakfast staff at the restaurant were excellent. Food was also great at the breakfast restaurant. I usually like to stay in Luxury brands, but this hotel provided a terrific experience. My sincerest thanks to the staff and management of this property!

Our recent stay at the Marriott was nothing short of a nightmare. We had to change rooms twice due to issues with dirty bathrooms and showers, as well as the non-functional toilets. While the building service workers were helpful and friendly, the front desk staff and receptionist staff has been shockingly rude and unhelpful, displaying a lack of commitment to their guests satisfaction. Adding to our frustration, an incidental fee was charged without any explanation or incidents during our stay. We were looking for a nice hotel with a great downtown location for our visit to Chicago for the weekend, and this has ended up being a nightmare to deal with even weeks later. The overall experience was so disappointing that it fell below the standards one might expect even at a Super 8 motel. I strongly discourage anyone from booking a stay at this hotel. Save yourself the disappointment and explore alternative accommodations that prioritize a positive guest experience.
