Stayed here bc of a groupon. So happy we did! Such a nice hotel. Very chic decor, modern vintage. Nice bar, Starbucks and amazing service. They remembered our names which I thought was a nice touch. Overall very good experience, would definitely stay here again.

I spent nearly a week at MileNorth mid-February and really have nothing but great things to say. All of the staff I came in contact with were super friendly, but never annoyingly so. The lobby is homey and people are friendly, not like large chain hotels (which I don't love, thus choosing MileNorth). The location is probably the best in... More

Just returned from spending the weekend in Chicago. The staff was not only personable but very helpful, especially the front of the house staff. Would like to thank Cynthia and all of the desk staff for taking the time to show us rooms, etc. We had a couple of very small items needing correction in the room and they were... More

Well, yes that is possible, but you have to get it yourself as there is NO room service at this hotel. I was disappointed knowing that I couldn't be lazy in my bed and order room service. If you are looking for something to eat from the hotel, you must go to the bar area which is just to the... More

Hi Chicagogrl37, Your title made us chuckle! We do not offer room service unfortunately, but we do have many breakfast items that are very quick to grab in the lobby. We understand your comments though, and we may look at a way to alleviate this problem in the future. Please come back to see us soon! Thanks! More

The hotel is in a great location, a 1/2 block of the Magnificent Mile. I signed up for a special package that was 40% off their normal rates. When I called direct for reservations I had to direct the reservations person I was talking to their web site, she was not aware of the 40% off rate. I upgraded to... More

We stayed over Valentine's weekend 2015 and enjoyed the location. We had a king suite, which provided plenty of room for the two of us. City view wasn't much to look at, but that was fine. Bed comfy, room clean, staff friendly. Right off the Magnificent Mile, and walking distance to L stop. Would use again, but would also check... More

I stayed here with my wife over Valentine's day weekend. We loved the coffee shop/bar on their main floor. We had the pleasure of meeting quite a bit of the staff (bartenders/baristas/front desk/bellhop/valet/maids. All were very nice and very helpful. The room was great and the bed was comfy.
