Courtyard Chicago Downtown/River North
Ranked #94 of 192 Hotels in Chicago
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Easy walking distance to the Magnificent Mile (only one block off Michigan Ave.), and only about a one mile walk to Macy's State Street store (the Mother-Ship of all stores and a must-visit for shoppers). The hotel was clean and it looked nicely updated. The rooms were clean, and maid service kept them nicely maintained. The only bad thing I can say is there was a big stain on our carpet in our room, but other than that the the rooms were very nice (our group rented 3 rooms). They were spacious, there was an assortment of pillows to choose from, and the beds were very comfortable. And the shower, we all agreed, was one of the best ever! Staff was very friendly and helpful. I don't think I saw it on their list of room amenities, but they did have a small fridge that came in handy. There is a Starbucks in the building, and if that's not your thing, there is a Dunkin' Donuts across the street that had reasonable prices for breakfast (well, Chicago reasonable). It's an easy drive in from I-90; we always use exit 50B and it's a short drive from there to the hotel.

The parking lot next to the hotel does not handle over-sized vehicles, but it will handle standard van and mid-size SUV's. Call the hotel and double check if you have a larger vehicle to see if it will fit. The parking lot is a curvy, tight fit, but it was very handy and attached to the hotel.

There have been some stories in the media during the last year or two about theft and assault problems on Michigan Avenue, and we were a bit nervous about going. We were impressed with the number of police located in the area, and always felt safe. So don't let the stories keep you away. I hope Chicago maintains their level of police security. We held off going there for several years, but now we would not hesitate to go again. So Chicago Police Department - I think your money is being well spent on the extra security, and good job to the planners for realizing this would make a difference to their tourism. With all the news about shootings in Chicago, they should let people know, in a positive way, that Michigan Ave. is a safe place to visit with a very visible police presence.

We would stay here again. For us, it checked off everything on the list for a great hotel!

Great location, service was outstanding, every person was friendly. A couple of minor bumps, but they were resolved quickly with a great attitude and a smile. I also found this to be a very quiet hotel during the late evening.

Nice meeting rooms. Nice rooms with very comfortable beds. Many restaurants and attractions within walking distance so this hotel is central to pretty much what you'd like to do. But walk. More to see ands less money to pay for taxis. Restaurant/bar attached. Only used the bar. Just fine.

This hotel was perfectly fine and superbly located (though its sister property is a few blocks better, i.e., closer to the river) but for some reason, I was expecting more.

One thing that I would rave about is the coffee/donut shop: Glazed and Infused. The coffee was delicious and check out the photos - I didn't eat any donuts but I sure wanted to!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review about our property. It is regretful to hear that our location and amenities did not meet your expectiations. You are correct in that our sister properties are a little closer to the lake however we are only about 4 - 5 blocks walk from the lake and are surrounded by some of the cities most popular tourist attractions as well as live entertainment. We hope that when in the Chicago area in the future you will choose the Chicago downtown Courtyard River North as your first choice hotel and enjoy a Glazed and Infused Donut they wont bite :).

Courtyard River North was wonderful from the moment we pulled up until the moment we left! The staff was extremely helpful. The rooms were comfortable quiet and clean. The lobby bar/restaurant was fantastic.

For s surprise birthday jaunt to Chicago,reserv. Made at the downtown marriott courtyard on Hubbard . It took two months to secure reserv. Because, well it's Chicago and a lot happens in Chicago..check in was easy, service was excellent from the car valet to front desk...complete opposite of our stay in jersey city in April... Here they take your bags to room, get you the cab, give you a bag of info on the city, restaurants, etc. every one was there to be of service to the people that pay their salaries ..Us, the traveler. We had a junior suite, quite comfortable..bath could be a bit larger, but hey, this is the city and space is at a premium. There is a new restaurant open on the property that we did not try as everything had been prearranged for me by the family..also a small donut shop is right next to it..will give the restaurant a try next time....breakfast looked awesome.
