We are a lifestyle or boutique hotel, which means we are free from the confines of scripted service that some larger hotel brands are constricted by.

I'd love to give a good review of this hotel. It was a cool, funky place with a great location. They make a great martini too. Despite the martini, I barely slept through the night. I could not get the room below 72F even when I turned on the air conditioner (it was January.) To add to the heat, the... More

Hi FeedMe_2010, Thank you for the review. We are so sorry to hear that your room was too warm for you to sleep. It sounds like there may have been a technical issue with the thermostat.

I had lots of fun at this hotel. I thinks it's super quirky/hispter-like. Not the most luxurious stay, but the rooms are spacious and clean. The lobby is beautiful and the Barista Bar has DELICIOUS food. read a more in-depth review on my blog! http://secondcitystays.wordpress.com

We stayed at Mile North in late December when a family member was hospitalized at Lurie's Children's Hospital. We stayed one night and found our room very comfortable. Great view of the city, larger than average bathroom. The Lobby was very comfortable with a nice bar and a Starbucks that opens at 6am with coffee, drinks and breakfast sandwhiches. The... More

This is a fine hotel with a great location. Unfortunately, the front desk staff is the worst I have come across, and I travel a lot. Upon check-in, I was handed paper work to sign – fine; however, the nightly rate, penalty for early checkout, etc were all blank. When I asked for clarification before signing, I was met with...

Hi MoPadres, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. The paperwork at check-in was simply in place for NYE. Most hotels put similar paperwork in place on this night because of the potential liabilities that come along with such a night. We are glad you had a nice experience up at the bar. Our F&B... More

This is actually my second time staying at this hotel. Unfortunately, I entered the bathroom and there was a dead roach in the tub. It disgusted me. I informed the front desk staff and they moved me to another room. I asked to speak with the manager, but she never called me in 2 days regarding that issue. The rooms... More

Hi Marays, Thank you for the great review! We like the description of "retro funky"! We definitely offer something different from all of our competitors. Our lobby is super cozy and comfortable. We like to say we have a bit of a "residential" or "neighborly" feel. Come back and see us soon! Thanks! More

This is a new hotel in a great location On Superior and Michigan Ave. The rooftop lounge is very nice, but a bit small if the outdoor patio isn't open due to weather. You can also eat Chicago style pizza next door at Gino's. Valet parking is a bit pricey, $58 per day. Downtown we usually pay $50 per day... More

Hi Katy H, Thank you for your review! Our rooftop is the place to be in the summer! You'll have to come back once it warms up.

Hi Stephen, Thank you for the kind review! We are glad you enjoyed your room and the staff. Being in the heart of the city is one of our best features, but in return, sometimes the hotel gets a little noisy. Next time you're here, ask the reservations team if they can put you in an extra quiet room. They... More
