The hotel is in a great location, a block from the heart of the Magnificent Mile. The rooms are nicely decorated and clean. Could use a little better lighting and a fan in the bathroom. The staff is superb! Very friendly and courteous. The woman who checked us in gave us a free upgrade. Woohoo! We received a fantastic deal...

After an initial glitch with our reservation (Bookings.com) Shanti at the front desk could not have been more accommodating to my daughter and I. The rest of the staff was very warm and helpful, too. As a frequent traveler, I would recommend your hotel wholeheartedly!

The Courtyard never disappoints. When we come to Chicago we always do our favorite things -- shopping, restaurants, movies. The Courtyard is close to everything. We can walk to Water Tower to shop and most of our favorite restaurants are either within walking distance or a short cab ride away. (Garrett Popcorn is just steps away.) The rooms are extremely...

This is our second stay here and we have had no issues. The hotel was packed this weekend 12/26-12/29 and we experienced no noise from neighboring rooms so the walls must not be thin.

Would highly recommend this hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable and had free WiFi. Ate at the attached restaurant for lunch and loved the homemade tomato soup. Just bring some earplugs if you are a light sleeper! Near the hospital so sometimes it was a little noisy. Slept like a baby tho!

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
