Thank you for your response, unfortunately we use a third party source for parking. Therefore parking prices are not determined by Marriott Hotels. The amenities that we offer are usually disclosed during the Check In process. Nonetheless, we value your feedback.

The location was good, the front desk manager was thoughtful, and the room I eventually received was spacious.

Loved the building and location. Would’ve been nice to have a mini-fridge in the room.

Great location. Liked that there was a 24 hour gym. Room was a good size, but the view was just so-so.

beautiful upscale hotel but out of my league

Pros: Architecture!
Cons: Better marketing - this is an upscale, young person's hotel, but homeless sleeping on the sidewalk outside by 9 pm.
Pro - This hotel is beautifully restored. Cons- The lack of any type of soda machine (they referred you to the bar) was a bummer. If you are looking for fancy, this is it. And they don't take cash at all. So be prepared for pricey and all on credit. They did finally accept my cash deposit (I had paid online in advance for the one night via Travelocity) but had a person follow me to the room to lock up the mini bar/snacks and wouldn't let me use the wi-fi because I couldn't give them a credit card on file with the $200 per night deposit pre-authorized. They wanted me to find a Western Union- alone in downtown Chicago in a city I'd never been- to wire to my credit card company to increase my available credit by the amount of cash I was trying to give them. After tearfully explaining to the young woman my $288 one night stay was non-refundable by Travelocity, and I would be on the streets for the night she accepted the cash. Very stressful, probably my fault but her asking if "my parents or children could call her with a credit card" didn't make it better.

Best week ever

My fiancé and I traveled to Chicago for his birthday. We bought a plane and hotel package at travelocity and honestly we were prepared to Get the sucky room since we got a good deal. But what a surprise we got when we arrived and the hotel was beautiful, the lady in front asked us what we were here for and When we said bday she upgraded our room for free! Our room was a king size bed and a very large comfortable room ; that same night I went downstairs to ask for recommendation on a bar and when asked what the occasion I explained again that it was his bday, we went out and when we came back the hotel had sent us a bottle of champagne and macaroons!!! We had an awesome experience, and yes they are renovating the bar downstairs but it did not bother us at all.
