I stayed in a King Suite for 3 nights because my apartment was being painted, and I didn't want to spend a fortune for a hotel. I was quite happy with my stay. It was such a joy to stay in a very spacious room. The desk area was separate from the living area which was separate from the area... More

This hotel was wonderful! The location could not be better. The staff was so kind, welcoming, and helpful. The room was large and very clean. The decor was boutique like but everything was modern and clean. I have already recommended it to friends I know that are going to be traveling to Chicago. I highly recommend this hotel.

I stayed here a number of times when it was the Affinia, and have now stayed about 3 times after the transition to MileNorth. I'm not sure I'll go back. The room was fine, the front desk staff were fine, and the place in general is lively and inviting. I do miss the restaurant that was there when it was... More

A deceptive bunch of Scum. charged for internet at 6.95 whether you use it or not, which means the guest pay for the internet service. but you don't know this until checkout, heat is rigged. cold room.

I was surprised at how quiet this hotel was. The windows are covered in an extra pane of glass which serves to reduce the noise to near zero. As well, during the 4 nights I stayed here, I only heard other guests in the hallway a couple of times, and never any noise from adjoining rooms. Sure, there was the... More

Found a great rate over Thanksgiving. Not sure I would pay their regular daily rate, however. But downtown Chicago is very expensive. Maybe if I were on a expense account. Room was spartan and the metallic bathroom wallpaper straight from the 1980s. That said, the room was serviceable. The TV wasn't in particularly good working order, the picture was fuzzy.

Mile North was so warm and cozy I would return. Check in was quick and easy. I stayed by myself so the room was the perfect size for me. There was enough room for me to work on my lap top, listen to my ipod and then watch television. The bathroom was very cute too. I love Chicago and this... More
