The Marriott Lincolnshire Resort, located about 1 hour north of downtown Chicago, lies on 170 wooded acres in the midst of the sophisticated North Shore District.
This enchanting destination is perfect for a quick golf trip, for retreat-style meetings, weddings and special events, family vacations or for those who just want to get away and make the world disappear for awhile. While conveniently located near highways that afford easy access to the dining, nightlife, shopping and attractions Chicago has to offer, the Marriott Lincolnshire can be a destination in itself, with practically everything one needs for a relaxing holiday in a self enclosed resort style community.
