Hello - I'm from Chicago and therefore not familiar with the marriott properties here although I've stayed quite a bit outside chicago in Marriott properties.
I'm thinking of taking my wife for a couple days of rest during week days at a Marriott or Renaissance property in and around Chicago area where they have an awesome platinum.
Awesome to me is where they serve some excellent breakfast as well as some good snacks/hors devours during dinner time.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your recommendations.
You will never go wrong at either of these great properties!
Staying at both many times, I find the Ren. a little more "Romantic"!
You should consider calling the hotels and explaining your situation and see what "Specials", they may do for you.
Good luck! Please consider a nice meal at the 95th floor at the John Hancock Building. You won't forget it!
