Overview

Located in the Streeterville neighborhood, adjacent to the Magnificent Mile
Some past guests didn't appreciate the hotel's quirky design

Frequently described by guests as "whimsical," "trendy" and "cool," this Autograph Collection hotel aims to marry art and science to create a unique experience for Chicago travelers. You'll see these concepts articulated throughout the hotel, whether it's with the property's "robot attendants," Leo and Cleo, each room's Amazon Alexa or the Leonardo da Vinci quote that greets guests in the lobby. Hotel EMC2 even nods to the creator of its namesake at The Albert, the property's on-site restaurant. (Albert Einstein's famous special-relativity equation is E=MC2.) And though there are imaginative touches throughout, including interactive art installations and an "infusary" – a chandelier-like structure that creates house-infused liquors, this Marriott outpost still offers some of the standard amenities you'd expect in a hotel, including a fitness center and guest rooms outfitted with minifridges, coffee makers and TVs. Plus, its location in the Streeterville neighborhood, adjacent to the Magnificent Mile, can't be beat. Though most guests loved the quirky design, others weren't as impressed. But because of this hotel’s Marriott ties, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can cash in or accrue points for choosing to stay here.
