Forgive me if I'm a bit tardy with my review. I stayed at the MileNorth on February 8-10 and was happy with the experience - so much so that I've already booked a return stay for mid-December. The staff was polite and professional - the location was outstanding and the King Suite that I stayed in we lovely. No complaints... More

I had stayed at MileNorth two years ago, and gave it an excellent review. I hadn't been back since then, and I won't be returning again after my experience this weekend. First, when I arrived at 3:45pm, they were unable to check me in. They said that rooms of the type that I had booked weren't available. When I came... More

The hotel was so nice. It was located next to Gino's East Pizza which was a plus for us because we love that place! The room itself was sleek and clean. It was a nice size and very comfortable. The hotel is only a block away from shopping central. We walked to/from central train station, it took about 30 minutes.

Hi Carre07! Thank you for your very kind words about our hotel! You mentioned that we are central to the great shopping of Michigan Avenue- and we agree! This time of year, there is no better place to stay if you're trying to get some holiday shopping done. We are just blocks from Water Tower Place, Neiman Marcus, and a... More

There are so many lovely features to this hotel that I thought about writing a review even before I had something to write about. The decor is really stunning, it's a nice clean place. The food at the bar in the lobby is really good! The food on the rooftop is really not that good. I got some skirt steak... More

Hi DCJendc, Thank you for sharing your comments with us regarding your recent stay. We are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the rooftop food. The rooftop lounge menu is designed with small plates and a few sharing plates to compliment our cocktails and outstanding drink list. If you come back and are looking for a more hearty meal, the...

I love this place! Hip and trendy like the W with free internet, huge rooms, king sided beds, oversized showers. So happy! Refrigerator is empty.. so if you stay here BYOB. The rooftop bar here is excellent and the staff here is easy going. Had some trouble checking in which would have cost them a star except the the manager... More

If you're looking for a trendy hotel straight out of an IKEA catalog in a great location which is less expensive and pretentious that other options in the area, stay at the MileNorth. The hotel is just off Michigan Avenue on the north end so it's super convenient to the Hancock building, Water Tower Place, dining, and shopping. We had... More

We stayed in Chicago for one night due to Dr. appt (www.luriechildrens.org) for our daughter. Location: MileNorth is the closest hotel to the hospital. It was great to be able to park the car, go to the Dr. appointment, eat at Gino's pizza, and walk to our room without having to walk more than about 30 yards. It's within walking... More

This is a somewhat large hotel which has a trendy boutique feel! The lobby is comfortable and very thoughtfully appointed, a great place to rest for a moment or congregate with friends. There are computers in the lobby and a small cafe/coffee bar. The front desk staff is professional, cordial and accomodating. The hotel is in a perfect location on... More

Hi jcp250! Thank you so much for the great review. It sounds like you had a fantastic stay with us earlier this month. We love our location too!

This summer we again found ourselves in the city of Chicago. We had such a wonderful experience staying at the MileNorth Hotel last November, so of course, we made a return trip there. This stay was just as lovely! Situated on East Superior 1/2 block off of Michigan Avenue, the location cannot be beat. It's perfect for shopping, eating, and... More

We have stayed here 6 or 8 times over the years and location is perfect. However, what really makes it great are the people.
