The Courtyard Chicago Magnificent has been kept up to date, and the rooms are very large for downtown. The staff was great, I probably had about 6 different times during my stay I needed help or had questions. Every employee bent over backwards to make sure my needs were met. The beds were very comfortable with tons of pillows, which...

I would not normally stay at this hotel, but I was with a group on business and this was the hotel the group selected. The price was reasonable and the location was very good. It was a short walk to MM, Navy Pier and river. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and the AC/Heat worked well. The hallways were...

My conference hotel was the larger Marriott close by, but I chose this one. I could walk to the conference shuttle bus at the larger Marriott but enjoyed Courtyard's amenities - more reasonable price in food, internet access, coffee, etc. As well, there were some great little restaurants close by, and you're right next to Michigan Ave. I'll stay there...

We stayed here the last weekend of September. Convenient location, easy check in, and clean comfortable room. Very impressed by the desk staff: we asked where we could get a copy of the Sunday Trib for the next day which isn't a newspaper the hotel provides. We were pleasantly surprised to find the Sunday Trib outside our door the next...

I was in Chicago for a conference but didn't want to spend 300 a night so I stayed here. The hotel was OK, staff are very friendly.

The best thing about staying in this hotel is that it was close to Garrett's Popcorn. The smell was delicious. The rooms were spacious and clean and the view was great. You must be careful though because you are very close to other hotel rooms or buildings. Very close to the magnificent mile. The train ride into Chicago was wonderful.

This is a typical Courtyard with what you would expect from Martiott. The front desk folks were very responsive when I requested a certain type of room. The fitness area was equipped with enough cardio and weight equipment to keep most travelers happy. Even though you get the typical city sounds like sirens etc if you request a higher floor...

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.
