We travelled to Chicago to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. The MileNorth is in the best location to all the sights in Chicago. We were able to walk to all areas from the hotel, and found it very safe at all times. We were given a complimentary upgrade to a suite by the excellent receptionist.In fact, all the staff were...

Check-in was quick and friendly people, very thorough. Got to my room and one of my two cards didn't work. Not a biggie since it was just me, but I hate that. Room is very modern and clean, A nice desk area, refrigerator, clean bathroom. The TP is on a stand (versus the typical thing you would see). Shampoo, etc...... More

Boutique Hotels have to try hard to get business away from the big chains like Marriott and Hilton - who tend to keep patrons by Status only. Some chain hotels can be hit and miss. The Mile North Hotel is in a great location being 1 block away from Michigan Ave and all the uptown stores as well as great... More

I booked a one-night stay at the Mile North earlier this year to take advantage of the prime location. First impressions were very good, I really liked the way the lobby is set up. The Starbucks to the left of the front desk is a great touch! When I made the reservation, I was only able to reserve a room... More

Staying here for a conference at the McCormick - location is fantastic and is within walking distance of everything you could need - the McCormick is around 3 miles away which is a short bus ride or $15 cab. Rooms are comfy and quiet but a little dated and basic. Gave it 4/5 due to location and staff - Would... More

The hotel is just across the street and through a walkway for access to Northwestern Hospital. It is very clean and up to date. It has wonderful rooms for handicapped guests and the staff is very accomodating.

I would stay here again and again. We had dinner at the hotel and was quite impressed, and they made a pretty good moscow mule:) We... More

Being just off Michigan Ave, adjacent to the Northwestern University Hospitals and Medical School, and over-looking Lake Michigan certainly gives this very comfortable and quiet hotel a real advantage. We have stayed here a couple of times and have found the staff very helpful, the rooms clean, and the beds comfortable. My only criticisms are that on both visits, we... More

Nice hotel in close proximity to the Mile. Quite impressed with the service and the rooms themselves, quite clean and charming. Walking distance to the downtown core, which was a huge plus on our end.

I chose Mile north, cause it's got great reviews, it turned out to be a let down. Staff at the front desk who weren't professional, they were too green to tell me if certain services were free or not. I've been to other large cities and stayed at their hotels, this hotel really doesn't live up to my expectation, as... 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.
