“Nice Location”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

I stayed in this hotel for a business trip and enjoyed the location. I had a few hours to kill so I walked around the area. I was close to what used to be known as the Sears Tower and ate at Giordano's. I also rented a Divvey (sp?) and rode around the city.

The room was great, nice lobby bar, and was a good overall value

Thank you, we sincerely appreciate those reviews submitted by Senior Contributors, and delighted to see you had a memorable stay. Our unique location in the Loop has opened the door for a new wave of travelers to explore a corner of the city once reserved for traders, bankers, and the architectural aficionados. By foot or by Divvy, our beautiful city is best view at street level and can be easily navigated even for the 1st time visitor. We hope that the opportunity for you to return either on business or pleasure will avail itself again soon, it would be our honor to have you as one of our repeat guests.

You don't put your name on the hotel unless it is special. You can pay less for a good Marriott in Chicago, but you will get more value and be closer to many key spots at this hotel. Good food.
Wonderful well designed room with a bed we would like to steal. Each feature a notch up from most of the chains hotels. They do have AAA rates that include parking that can save significant dollars.

Well stated, the JW Marriott brand was in fact founded as a tribute to our namesake. It is our obligation to ensure the quality of the hotel and its elevated level of service provide each guest with a memorable visit. As many travelers like you have discovered, Chicago’s Loop is a vibrant, active, and historical must-see for both the local and world traveler. We are especially appreciative when a Senior Contributor reviews our hotel, and it goes without saying the 5-star ratings are priceless to the hotel leaders and associates, thank you.

This hotel stand out as one of the absolute best we ever stayed in. First off our room was gorgeous and large. Me and my husband were upgraded to the club lounge which was amazing. We stay with Marriott often and this lounge was by far the best. We were struck by the generous and friendly staff. The front desk agent Noel greeted us warmly and the concierge Eric gave us great recomendations. This hotel is definitely one to choose. It is a little far from the shopping area on Michigan Avenue, but very close to museums and the Skydeck Tower.

Absolutely Great! Thank you, we too consider ourselves fortunate to have arguably the best associates in the Chicago area, if not the Midwest. They truly do want our guests to have the best possible stay, and when combined with the luxury standards set forth for the JW Marriott brand, we hope to have become the leading upscale hotel in the region. We appreciate your positive recognition in a public forum and hope your travels will bring you back to Chicago again soon.

This is by far the best hotel within the Loop. It is beautiful and the rooms are very well done and quiet (something most of the Loop hotels are not due to the EL train). I have stayed at almost all of the hotels within the Loop and there is no comparison. It is within walking distance of just about everything in downtown Chicago. This will definitely be my first choice to stay at when I have to travel to Chicago.

Success! You’ve now discovered what accomplished travelers from around the globe have also found, Chicago’s premier luxury hotel and its unique location in the City’s Loop. Chicago is indeed easy to move about by foot, but also has around the clock public and private transportation options to deliver our guests to wherever they need to be. Thank you for the positive recommendation and intent to return, however we consider ourselves fortunate in providing productive and memorable stays to guests such as yourself and hope to be your hotel of choice well into the future.

We were in Chicago to look for an apartment for our soon who will be attending school in the fall. The location was perfect. We were upgraded to concierge level since my husband is platinum elite. The breakfasts were great and the service was excellent. The space is small though and at times difficult to find seating. Lobby was great for meeting friends for drinks. Would definitely stay again. Lovely room, bathroom, great shower!

Congratulations to your son and his acceptance into one of Chicago’s institutions of higher learning. Thank you also for your loyalty to the Marriott organization, as Platinum Elite members your options are plentiful in the Chicago area and we were fortunate to have had you as our guests. Our apologies for any undue wait in our Executive Lounge, as our Lounge staff has set the hospitality standard for luxury tiered hotels, perhaps it’s a double edged sword when our Lounge’s popularity sometimes exceeds capacity. Regardless, you now have a reason to venture north to see your son, and although he might not yet appreciate having the parents come to visit, we will be more than happy to have you back as often as you would like.

I stayed at the JW Marriott in May to attend a conference which was held onsite. I was very pleased with the location, the onsite amenities and the room itself. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in downtown Chicago.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 days last June.
The hotel is new, classic, clean and good decoration.
The staff was friendly and very helpful.
The rooms are big, clean and I love the decoration, big bathrooms.
The gym and pool area is also very nice.
I would totally go back to this hotel.
