Loved our stay at the MileNorth. We pricelined the room, so it was the luck of the draw, but we were thrilled. Perfect location near the Miracle Mile. The room was sort of oddly laid out, long and narrow like a bowling alley, but beautifully furnished. The bathroom was painted a gorgeous metallic copper. Room had a great view and... More

Stayed at the MileNorth for 3 nights over New Years. I agree with the many TA reviews that the location is perfect. So close to the magnificent mile and all it has to offer. The rooftop bar was also a treat. The rooms are spacious and having the fridge for leftovers is convenient. It was a little disappointing the front... More

The staff at this hotel made my experience more enjoyable and the style and maintenance are impeupccable. This place is lovely indeed, and it's close to Art Institute off Chicago, trains, pubs, and very interesting neighborhoods! Overlooking beautiful architecture it's an A+ location.

This place lived up to my high expectations. The service in all regards was friendly and efficient. The decor is pretty modern but not over the top. The rooms were clean and comfy but most of all quiet! The little restaurant downstairs had the best salad I've had in a while and their flatbread was great! Maybe a little pricey... More

Hi Bill K, Thank you for visiting us in December! If the salad you're talking about is our Winter Greens Salad- you are in good company. That is one of our most popular dishes!

This hotel has nice decor and great service. My only complaint would be that the shower could have been cleaned a little better. There was some hair in the drain that wasn't mine. Great location and good pricing.

Hi April, Thank you for staying with us earlier this month! We are glad you like the décor of the hotel. It is modern, but not stuffy or pretentious. We're sorry to hear about the shower. Our Housekeeping team takes great pride in what they do, but sometimes things are missed. Thank you for letting us know, and next time,... More

I absolutely loved my room as it was nice and SPACIOUS. It was one of their suites. My view was not great, but I will take space over view any day. The room was clean and well kept. The staff was attentive and the location was great. I will definitely be a returning guest.

Carpet was horribly dirty and worn. Had to switch rooms because the floor had nasty staining on the floor. Second room the carpet is also worn. Additionally there is what looks like the beginning Of mold above the shower and the paint is beginning to peel. Grout on the bathroom tile is supposed to be white, but it's black... Horrible.

Hi Sandra W, Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear you weren't impressed with the physical condition of your room. For the amount of foot traffic we have at our busy hotel, our rooms are truly in great shape, but we are happy to report that we will be replacing all room and corridor carpet before the summer....

Stayed in this hotel on East Superior Street whilst visiting Chicago in May 2014, Michigan Avenue, the main shopping street is mere minutes away, and Lake Shore Park is not far away in the opposite direction. Quite a pleasant view of the nearby street. Rooms well appointed and comfortable beds, helpful staff.

Stayed here New Years Eve. Got a GREAT price thru Hot Wire. Nice Boutique hotel right off the Mag Mile. Very nice roof top bar with friendly staff. Room was large. Very big bathroom and shower. My only complaint is that the bed was too firm for my liking.
