Pros: My hotel room was clean, had a great kitchen setup, and good shower. No complaints about the amenities. Cons: Extremely thin walls. The people next to my room were partying at night and I had to call down several times. The staff went up twice and I overheard them threatening to kick them out of the hotel the second...

It was a decent stay for the price but while staying there I got stuck on the elevator by myself for a few minutes and was informed that the same elevator had been slipping between floors and that others had complained. Instead of shutting the elevator down, they kept it operating (although they called for maintenance). The front desk staff...

After a 23 hour plane flight from Sydney Australia, to arrive at 8pm and be told that there is no room available, particularly when the rooms were booked >6 months earlier, was appalling. To be told there was a room at a hotel near Midway, added insult to injury, particularly when travelling with two kids aged 14 and 12. Just...

We stayed in a two BR suite with our three school-age girls and our 2 month old baby to do an American Girl shopping trip over Thanksgiving weekend.

I stayed at this hotel from 11/27/13 through 12/1/13 with my wife and kids. We had a one bedroom suite which was exceptionally spacious and very clean.

We love Marriott Hotel collection and were surprised at the level of service and cleanliness of the rooms. When we were checking in there was a long line because one of the cashiers was having a personal conversation with her colleague. Then upon checking in our 5 year old found every left over toy from the prior guest stay. The...

My wife stayed for one night and we couldn't have been happier. It was a midweek stay and we were greeted with complimentary dinner and drinks.

I was pretty disappointed with my recent stay at the Residence Inn. Although out of their control, the TV's were not working which meant no opportunity to check news or local weather. I was appreciative though that the staff member at the front desk offered me a free movie rental as compensation. Also was surprised that my room did not...

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
