This Residence Inn needs some update work. The room furniture and layouts/wiring need some upgrading. The bath/shower arrangement in a two bedroom suite is very tight and unmanageable for a group of over 2-3 people. During recent stay the service elevator was broken and the two available guest elevators had long delays allowing for overall service. Elevators are very small....

Good morning. Thank you for taking a moment to share your feedback with us on your recent stay. I am happy to report that our large, service elevator has been repaired as of 10 a.m. on Wednesday. I know how much of an inconvenience this was to have only 2 of our 3 elevators up and running, I apologize for...

This Residence Inn is very nicely located, and the staff at the front desk were friendly and helpful, but the building as a whole and my room specifically felt dated and in need of attention. This has also been my experience with other Marriott Residence Inns during the past five or so years. I am a dedicated Marriott customer, in...

Book a room on the lake side as high as possible, a beautiful view. Breakfast was always great! Stayed for six weeks and was very comfortable. Close to everything and pet friendly with a fee of course. Plenty of room, comfy beds, cute kitchen. A shuttle to airport and train station would be great...really need one. The rooms are quite...

Had to beat it for location, as just a minutes walk from the shopping centre. Nice rooms (I had a kitchen) but limited services. As will most of these hotels, breakfast is a awful tasteless buffet with people fighting over it. Best to hit the streets and eat real food! Staff are very friendly and helpful. The lobby is spacious...

Thank you for writing a review of your recent experience at our property. Location, location, location. We are very fortunate to occupy a location right between Michigan Avenue and Lake Michigan.

Amazing hotel. You can't beat the location. Walking distance to everything, everywhere! Breakfast is great. Hotel room is clean and spacious. Bed comfortable. Our room had a big glass window. Indoor pool has a beautiful view! Totally recommend!

Recently stayed here for a long weekend & had a great trip. The location is ideal, just 1 block walk to Lake Michigan, or dining / shopping along Michigan Ave. Navy Pier is a 25 minute walk away or rent a bike & trek along the lake shore, there's so much to do along the lake in the summer which...

We've stayed here several times now, and you just can't beat the location for the money. It's just off Michigan Ave, around the corner from the Hancock Tower -- which means you've got restaurants, shopping, etc. all within a few blocks in all directions -- plus you can see Lake Michigan from the front door. Staff is always extremely helpful,...

Pros: Walking distance to shopping albeit very expensive high end and plenty of restaurants. The staff were friendly. Free breakfast and wifi. There were free appetisers mid week during our stay from 6-7:30pm. Coin operated Guest Laundry is very handy! Cons: The size of the Bathroom for a 2 Bed apartment was absolutely ridiculous. The sink was in the hallway...

What was supposed to be a 50th birthday celebration with a friend turned into a comedy of errors minus the comedy. They gave away our reserved rooms on the first night, overcharged us for the weekend, and then refused to refund the money. Save yourself the hassle and book with another hotel. There are plenty other establishments nearby who will...

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
