4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Being just off Michigan Ave, adjacent to the Northwestern University Hospitals and Medical School, and over-looking Lake Michigan certainly gives this very comfortable and quiet hotel a real advantage. We have stayed here a couple of times and have found the staff very helpful, the rooms clean, and the beds comfortable. My only criticisms are that on both visits, we... More

Nice hotel in close proximity to the Mile. Quite impressed with the service and the rooms themselves, quite clean and charming. Walking distance to the downtown core, which was a huge plus on our end.

I chose Mile north, cause it's got great reviews, it turned out to be a let down. Staff at the front desk who weren't professional, they were too green to tell me if certain services were free or not. I've been to other large cities and stayed at their hotels, this hotel really doesn't live up to my expectation, as... More

MileNorth is in a great location in downtown Chicago, right off of Michigan Avenue. It has a fun vibe and the staff was wonderful. The rooms are decorated very well and the bathrooms are spacious and attractive. I would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I overall enjoyed our stay. We asked for a view of the city, but were told we would enjoy the size of our room even more. Our room was large. We figured out after some inspection that it was the ADA compliant room. That's fine, still wish we had had a better view. It was immaculate. The... More

Hi acampion17, Thank you for your review! We are sorry you were surprised about the hotel services fee. It should have been on your confirmation, but regardless, surprises at checkout are never fun. A large portion of the fee goes to our neighbors, Lurie Children's hospital. We are glad you liked your large room, and we'll pass along your comment... More

The location and lobby were promising and 1 of the females working at the desk when we arrived was at least friendly while "Jessica" twirled her hair and ignored the fact that her co-worker (Cynthia) was struggling with a computer issue. We were traveling with our dog so we were given a "pet friendly" room with the nastiest faded &... More

Hi BMS1964, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. It sounds like it wasn't a great one for you! We are sorry there were inconsistencies between a third party "pet site" and our actual fees. We will look into having that group update their site. I'm sure you understand that it's not our website- so... More

Nice hotel. Sitting areas in lobby. Cafe/bar located there. Decent sized room. Downside, is there aren't any vending machines, so plan accordingly. We did have a fridge in room. Parking is valet, and is $62 a night. We parked a few blocks away, but still paid $44. There is a rooftop bar called 52 Eighty. Smaller than anticipated. Outdoor area... More

Hi ProudWelte1, Thank you so much for your review! We are glad you were able to experience 52eighty! The outdoor portion will open as soon as the weather warms up a bit. It's not the largest rooftop in Chicago, but did you know it's the tallest? The view from our 29th floor lounge is one that can't be replicated in... More

We arrived early and the room was ready. It was very nicely decorated and clean. The lobby was also clean and nicely decorated - modern. We were on the 7th floor. It was quiet and we liked the view from our window. Would ask for same room next visit! Pillows were real nice after walking all day in Chicago. The... More

Absolutely an excellent location on the mile. Very clean and affordable. Stylish rooms and good service. Room lacked some amenities (I.e. Minibar) found in pricer hotels in the area but still very comfortable and nice. You get more than you pay for for sure.

Hi Chad R R, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other travelers out there! We are glad you loved the location and your room. We don't stock our fridges, but guests still love that there is a place to store their leftover Gino's pizza, or whatever leftovers they have from dining out in this "foodie"... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
