Stayed jan 28 and 29th 2012 for the dance, convention. We arrived around 10:30 AM and were immediately checked into our room. I booked our room through priceline when I found it on priceline's website for $81.88 plus tax a night, this even included a generous cancellation policy. Saved me close to $134.00 over the convention rate. I was asked if we wanted a king or 2 double beds, I requested a refrigerator and was provided with one at no extra charge. The only thing we kind of wanted a high floor but were put on the 12th. It was at the end of a hall very quit location. We did find if we cut thru the room where the ice machine and pop machine, and then thru the stairway landing, it was a bit shorter than going around the maze of hallways. Requested late check out on sunday, were given an extra half hour, they did store the dance conventions participants luggage in a ballroom until we left, although where our groups was wasn't really monitored very well, and we weren't given any luggage tags. Used the pool early Saturday morning while my daughter attended class, very nice, would have liked to used the hot tup but unfortunately 4 very hairy guys were occupying it, each on a corner, and there was no way as a female I was join that group. Even when they got out they sat right on the 4 corners of the hot tub. I feel this was rude, and it wasn't Marriott's fault, come on guys you weren't the only ones at that hotel. Saturday evening my daughter and I ventured by the pool area, and the hot tub had been drained and was closed, I don't know maybe too much hair from those guys. This hotel is so close to everything, I love it here. We used to have the convention over at a hotel on Wacker Dr-which meant it was further from everything, and didn't have a pool. We walked everywhere, even out to Navy Pier on friday night, felt safe the entire time. We just happened to stumble upon the snow sculpturing contest taking place at NP, felt kind of bad for the participants as it had been in the mid 40's and sunny on friday. Would stay here again, yes the bathrooms are small, but really our room on both occasions hasn't been that small. The hotel on Wacker much smaller, and fridge not included.
