The location and lobby were promising and 1 of the females working at the desk when we arrived was at least friendly while "Jessica" twirled her hair and ignored the fact that her co-worker (Cynthia) was struggling with a computer issue. We were traveling with our dog so we were given a "pet friendly" room with the nastiest faded &... More

Hi BMS1964, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. It sounds like it wasn't a great one for you! We are sorry there were inconsistencies between a third party "pet site" and our actual fees. We will look into having that group update their site. I'm sure you understand that it's not our website- so... More

Nice hotel. Sitting areas in lobby. Cafe/bar located there. Decent sized room. Downside, is there aren't any vending machines, so plan accordingly. We did have a fridge in room. Parking is valet, and is $62 a night. We parked a few blocks away, but still paid $44. There is a rooftop bar called 52 Eighty. Smaller than anticipated. Outdoor area... More

Hi ProudWelte1, Thank you so much for your review! We are glad you were able to experience 52eighty! The outdoor portion will open as soon as the weather warms up a bit. It's not the largest rooftop in Chicago, but did you know it's the tallest? The view from our 29th floor lounge is one that can't be replicated in... More

We arrived early and the room was ready. It was very nicely decorated and clean. The lobby was also clean and nicely decorated - modern. We were on the 7th floor. It was quiet and we liked the view from our window. Would ask for same room next visit! Pillows were real nice after walking all day in Chicago. The... More

Absolutely an excellent location on the mile. Very clean and affordable. Stylish rooms and good service. Room lacked some amenities (I.e. Minibar) found in pricer hotels in the area but still very comfortable and nice. You get more than you pay for for sure.

Hi Chad R R, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other travelers out there! We are glad you loved the location and your room. We don't stock our fridges, but guests still love that there is a place to store their leftover Gino's pizza, or whatever leftovers they have from dining out in this "foodie"... More

I was very pleased with my one night stay here. Great location reasonable price. Loved the funky atmosphere and eclectic decor of the lobby. Service was excellent. My only complaint was that I prefer a softer bed!

Hi littlejazzjr, Thank you so much for your review! We are excited to hear that you loved our eclectic and funky feel. Beds are a tough one, as you just can't please everyone (though we wish we could)! We hope our service and our fun feel are enough to bring you back to stay with us again. Thank you for... More

I booked this hotel on a "bait and switch" deal that Hotwire offered in it's "Secret Hot Rate Hotel" category. After listing four guests for our reservation, Hotwire shows six quality name brand four star hotels then in small print mentions you could also get an independent or boutique hotel. I put two adults and two children in the drop... More

Hi Mnmom2009, Thank you for the review! We consider ourselves to one of the "hidden gem" hotels of Chicago. We aren't part of a big chain, which gives us the freedom to provide a more "unscripted" experience for our guests. We love being a unique option for the travelers out there who are sick of cookie cutter hotels. Thanks for... More

Veteran Chicago visitor but first time at this hotel. Great location a block East of Michigan Ave in the heart of the Water Tower area. Staff was attentive on checkin. No motor lobby so loading/unloading is a bit of a strain. Particularly so for us with two dogs. We stay at a lot of Kimpton hotels as they all accept... More

We stayed 5 nights in March- we were impressed with all elements of the hotel. The room was large and comfortable, staff were excellent (especially Joel) and as mentioned elsewhere, the location was perfect for sightseeing and shopping. Starbucks in the hotel was handy for a quick morning coffee and the bar staff were friendly (as were the front desk).... More

This hotel has nice suites and a great price. If you are looking for a stay close to the shopping district, this is a good choice. Comfortable rooms, good for a business trip or vacation. Having Gino's Pizza next door is a plus.

MileNorth is in an amazing location. It is directly beside one of the best rated deep dish pizza places in Chicago - Gino's (be aware if going for pizza that it takes them 45 minutes at least to prepare). The hotel is also just one block off of the Magnificent Mile with loads of upscale shopping available and within short... More

Hi Diaczok, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at MileNorth! We are sorry the rooftop was closed when you stayed with us. It is opening back up April 3rd, and it generally stays open through New Years. We are glad you loved our beds. We think they are heavenly as well! Thank you! More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
