Boutique style hotel in downtown Chicago. I was a little disappointed when I first arrived, wanting to stay in one of the more established "Grand" hotels, but a bit quirkey, with great, accommodating staff, was quite welcoming. No room service, with only a small area for the restaurant (if you can call it that) and bar. But next to Gino's... More

My family stayed at Mile North for two nights for a wedding. It was a fantastic stay and location. Special thanks to Annie at the front desk, she was awesome! The value was certainly well worth the cost!

Recently stayed at the Mile North for 3 nights while in Chicago for a concert. Our room was perfect, stayed in a king tower sweet with lots of space. I cannot say enough about how friendly the staff was to us. We saw some staff members out at Gino's next door, and had a great time with them. They even... More

Was a great location for where I needed to be! Downtown right off the Miracle Mile also right next to the Medical Buildings. Front Desk staff was very helpful and I had a lot of requests. Making reservations was easy and they price matched Internet site best deals while talking to an actual person! It is a little bit older... More

Our stay was pleasant and the staff was awesome! Heat wasn't working when we checked in, told the front desk and went to lunch. Upon our return a short time later, all was good. Get a room with a city view to add to your Chicago experience. Lobby has everything you need, start your day with a brewed to order... More

I am puzzled by the sheer number of great reviews on this hotel. It is in a good location overall. I booked it in mid-February based on the good reviews but I neglected to read the poor and terrible ones as well. We did NOT have a great, or even a good experience at Milenorth. It's obvious that if you... More

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

We came for a hospital visit but did some shopping and eating. Being at the top of michigan avenue makes it perfect for a loop of shopping . Clean modern and very roomy throughout.! . A much better layout than the usual hotel room . I love that the bathroom entry is away from the sleeping area. And theyve done... More

Hi tayatoby, . Thank you for the great review of MileNorth! You touched on two of our most popular guest comments- our HUGE rooms and our amazing location. Our location is so phenomenal that we have updated our lobby bar to be the perfect spot for our guests on the go. You can grab a full meal or grab-and-go items.... More
