Courtyard Chicago Midway Airport

Reviewed 10 September 2007

As Marriott rewards customers, we have stayed at many Marriotts and many Courtyards. This one just wasn't up to snuff in our opinion. Yes, it is convenient to Midway (by shuttle) and to downtown (by El). The lobby is, well, motel-like (it is what it is). The room is okay, clean (except for some mold in the shower) with a comfortable bed and good shower. But there was that mold in the shower, and the air conditioner sounded like a jet engine taking off every time it cycled on.

All in all, I think it's way overpriced. If I were to stay at Midway again (a viable option if you're arriving late, since getting into the city the next day is so darn easy on public transportation), I'd find a less expensive option like a Days Inn or Sleep Inn.

Near Midway, but not so close that the planes bother you. In fact, we rather enjoyed watching them fly in! This was SUCH a clean and comfortable place to stay. It was very relaxing to come back to after a busy day downtown.

The hotel is in a complex with a lot of other hotels. We felt very safe there. They also have a 24 trolley that will take you to/from Midway and the El station, although we didn't use it.

The Friday's restaurant attached to the hotel was very convenient to grab a bite before heading out for the evening. We even got desserts to go and ate them in our room when we returned.

We paid $169 a night (before taxes) which included the $10 a day for parking (unless they just forgot to add it onto our bill). We felt that it was VERY worth it even tho we had to drive about 25 minutes to get to our destination each day.

Once again, a great experience with Courtyard. I've never had a bad one!

Stayed here for 1 night before leaving from the Midway airport. The location can't be beat if you are flying out of Midway. This hotel is in a complex with other hotels surrounding the Midway airport. There is a Friday's attached to the Courtyard, though we didn't try it. Our room was a bit small but clean and new looking. The staff was very friendly. The shuttle service was very prompt in taking us to and from the airport. We would not hesitate to stay here again for a park and fly.

Usually airport hotels are very loud and the service is usually lacking. This hotel exceeded our expectations.

The lobby is beautiful and bright, the entire staff were very VERY!! polite, we checked in in 2 minutes.

We stayed in July and the pool/ outdoor gazebo lounge area was wonderful both during day and at night.

The hotel is in a "center of hotels". The area has lots of fast food places and a large strip mall near by. We took the FREE shuttle to airport and took subway to downtown for sightseeing.

other things: Free parking, Free shuttle, attached TGI FRidays, premium cable including ESPN and HBO, very nice fitness area. Large spacious rooms. OUR room had a balcony overlooking pool.

We booked this hotel "blind" from an online bid service the day of check-in. Our bid price was 55.00 (reg price we found out later is 140)!!! Would and have recommended to anyone!!!
