The Marriott Marquis Chicago, opening in 2017, will soar over the city’s lakefront and south Loop, with 1206 stylish guestrooms and over 90,000 sq ft of meeting space. Directly connected to McCormick Place, the Marriott Marquis provides a nearly infinite combination of flexible event spaces. Located near the lakefront and two blocks from the Green Line ‘L’ stop, the Marriott Marquis’ prime location makes it easy for meeting attendees across the globe to gather in one place. The hotel features the signature Marriott Great Room lobby with a Grab ‘n Go and community marketplace. The interior spaces are very architecturally driven, with rich white oak millwork and blackened metal detailing throughout. Angular motifs carry throughout the tower, taking cues from Chicago’s many bridges as well as the building itself. Furnishings are fresh and contemporary, signaling a new direction for the Marriott brand.
