I stayed here during a meeting for ASA and this was the host hotel. The location was super convenient as our meeting was at Lurie's which was literally a block away. I also enjoyed the pizza place next door. We had a pre-meeting gathering on the roof deck and that seemed to be a nice spot. It was somewhat chilly... More

We recently spent two nights at MileNorth while visiting Chicago colleges. The location is perfect for sightseeing, shopping and dining out. We had a king suite on the 24th floor for two adults and one teenager; she was comfortable on the queen size pullout. The square footage of the room was ample, just would have preferred different use of the... More

Loved the location steps from magnificent mile. Beautiful and upgraded suites and very helpful staff. Our swipe room key didn't work and after a considerable wait in the hallway we were offered an upgrade on another floor while the technician tried to fix the problem. Staff were very apologetic. Staff in the main floor bar were very efficient and friendly.

A very nice hotel, we'll kept, friendly and efficient staff, nice rooms and right in the middle of things. Only one block from the main street, and close to all the attractions. Close to all transportation also. They have a nightclub on the roof.

Don't get me wrong. I've stayed at fleabag motel 8 stops in the middle of nowhere that were worse hotels. This place is worse if only that I paid $300 a night for a dirty, outdated room with paper thin walls and towels like sandpaper. The bed is rock hard and the sheets are poor quality for mental hospital. We... More

We booked this hotel through Priceline and didn't realize that the hotel would not guarantee a room with two beds. When we arrived we were offered a room with a queen bed and not even enough room for a roll away. Since I must have my own space, we upgraded to a king suite. The staff was very helpful with... More

Was slightly disapointed by this hotel, but perhaps my expectations were too high. I used to live in Chicago and visit often. Was not aware of this hotel, but saw a promotion on Jetsetter that advertised a "large suite spread out over two floors with a seperate living room, sofabed..." I decided to splurge, dreams of a duplex room dancing... More

We have stayed at this hotel 4 times in the last year while visiting our daughter who lives two blocks away. The location is incredible. The rooms are large, very clean, and huge bathrooms.

Would definitely return here. It had a hip vibe, with spacious, and clean rooms. Close to everything that I wanted to be close to (Navy Pier, parks, shopping). The unique eclectic style that the hotel had was welcoming and super friendly. Unlike most hotels where you are afraid to touch things, this hotel was really fun and trendy. Great staff,... More
