Located in the heart of Chicago’s financial district at 151 West Adams Street, the 610 –room JW Marriott is within walking distance to some Chicago’s most famous sites, including the Art Institute, Millennium Park and the theater district.

    The hotel will be home to one of the most comprehensive meetings facilities in the city, including:
    • 8,453 square-foot grand ballroom
    • 6,096, square-foot junior ballroom featuring the building’s original arched glass ceiling
    • 35 breakout rooms
    • GoThere Virtual Meetings studio with AT&T & Cisco Telepresence
    • Wireless and high speed Internet and video conferencing

    The guest rooms combine Burnham’s style with modern luxury, including high ceilings surrounded by beautiful molding, flat-screen high-definition television and five-fixture marble bathrooms. Attention has been paid to the smallest details from the wall mounted glass lights by the bed to the sleek ergonomic desk chairs. Rooms on the concierge floor even feature televisions in the bathroom mirrors.

    Guests will also have access to the hotel’s 20,000 square-foot full-service spa, which has 14 treatment rooms. The fitness center, which features an indoor pool and top-of-the-line equipment, will be free to all hotel guests. The JW Marriott Chicago will offer a signature restaurant serving three meals a day as well as the two lounges for small meals and cocktails.
