Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 9, 2007
Every year, Illinois Meeting + Events magazine nominates three to four finalists in each of the 21 categories for their annual "Best Of" awards. This year, the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile is proud to announce their two finalist positions for "Best Convention Center" and "Best Hotel with More than 400 Rooms."
Hundreds of ballots were submitted and finalists were then painstakingly selected by the Editorial Advisory Board. While the winners aren't announced until the exclusive gala in March, and in the Spring 2008 issue of the magazine, this downtown Chicago meeting hotel already recognizes the nomination as a coveted honor.
"No matter what the final outcome is, we are already extremely honored to be recognized as one of the top hotels in all of Illinois," explains Doug Ridge, the General Manager at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile. "Knowing that the ballots were cast by our guests is the greatest acknowledgment we could receive."

A max of 42 breakout rooms are available for smaller events and meetings, while the entire space makes for amazing corporate functions, fundraisers and receptions.
