You can find better place for the money that you will spend to stay in this hotel. If you are planning to book this hotel be aware that what you pay is not what you get. The first room that was given to me had no fridge, microwaves and the television wasn't working. The next day I complained about the... More

We found this hotel online for a six night city break. Never having been to Chicago before we were unsure of where to stay. This hotel was perfect for us. Situated just off Michigan Avenue, Chicago's prime shopping district it offered a quiet sanctuary. Large enough to have all the facilities required but small enough to offer a friendly personal...

We stayed at Mile North for 5 nights in August, and had 2 rooms (one for us and one for the kids). The hotel is great value - the rooms are well appointed, much larger than a 'usual' hotel room, and well maintained. There is a roof top bar, reasonably priced and with fabulous views of the summer Chicago skyline.... More

Me and my friend recently stayed here (last night to be exact). And the from l front desk attendants were very helpful and nice. The room was very clean and comfortable, definitely a home away from home feeling when I walked in. I can safely say I was a bit cautious about how loud the traffic would be at night... More

I stayed overnight before flying out of Chicago with my wife and two boys (12&10) and wanted a location near to Michigan Ave shopping, There is a Corner Bakery two blocks away (about the same as a Walgreens in the opposite direction). It took me less than 5 minutes running to get to the lakeshore for my morning run and... More

MileNorth seeks to be an uber hip boutique hotel, from the lobby to the rooms but i've had better experiences in budget hotels. Located a block off Michigan Ave., other than Gino's East Pizza and the side door to Nieman Marcus, there is nothing else around. The lobby, decorated with modern couches and chairs, is dominated by Starbucks and a... More

The staff was GREAT, thanks Dora (at front desk) hooked me up with a suite. It was beautiful. Loved the room, Urban buddy is a GREAT app and everyone should download and get this app when visiting any city. It provides you with real locals who know their city, and can tell you the best hole-in-the-wall spots to check out,... More

This hotel is behind Northwestern Hopsital and used to be accomodation for staff. It has been done up well but you can still detect an institutional feel in the corridors and from the old heating/colling and plumbing system. Check in was quick and service was okay--a bit perfunctory. I had many packages delivered and the bellman promised to deliver them... More

Booked at the last minute, and the hotel was clean and comfortable. Rooftop bar is perfect, when the weather permits. Very good value for money, would return. Booked on hotels tonight so was not aware that we were getting a queen size bed, but on arrival they let us upgrade to a king suite for $40 more.

Lovely modern comfortable hotel in an excellent location. 2mins walk for the mag mile with abundance of shops. Not many places to eat/drink directly around but walk a bit and youll find them. Large "Suite Like" room with all the extras, only downfall was the AC - noisy and cold and windows couldnt be opened. Staff are lovely and the... More
