Our travel agent booked the Midway Marriott for our family so we could utilize their park/sleep package before an international family vacation. We were greeted by a wonderful woman and our check in was speedy with no hassles. Our room was very comfortable and clean, as was the rest of the hotel. Being in such close proximity to the airport, noise was never an issue either.
Our biggest issue and reasoning for a low rating was with their "park & fly" services. We felt that we weren't given all the info upfront and had we known what their idea of park and fly was, we'd have stayed elsewhere. We've traveled out of O'Hare several time and Milwaukee as well using similar hotel services. At all 3 hotels we've done this there was a separate, gated & protected lot for us to leave our vehicle in for the duration of our trip. This is certainly not the case with this Marriott. You are literally given a slip to put on our dashboard announcing that you are leaving your vehicle unattended and unprotected in their parking lot. It has the dates that you'll be leaving your vehicle in their lots right on it, letting everyone know the time frame in which no one will be looking after your vehicle. When asked if it was secure we were told there was security in the lot though we're not really sure what that means as we never saw any sort of security during our time there.
The shuttle to the airport runs every 20 minutes on the hour, 24 hours a day. Just note that it will run out of room at peak times as the Marriott is NOT the first hotel that it picks up from. After waiting for the 4 am shuttle pick up, we were turned away and had to wait until the next shuttle pick up (where others were in fact turned away as well.) It was quite concerning when trying to check in as early as is needed for international flights.
So if your looking for a clean, comfortable hotel this one will certainly fit the bill. But, be informed of what you will get with your park/fly package and early morning shuttle services.
