Although this is not a luxurious hotel, it is a great place for those not planning to spend tons of time in their room. Everything is clean and the location is absolutely incredible. After reading reviews, I was prepared for the worst, but we would return in a heartbeat. We could walk to everything and our stay was very affordable... More

I stayed here a couple week ago, and because of reviews on here I was nervous. But, I had a pre-paid deal from one of those sites and couldn't back out. I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel, and you cannot beat the location. As you might read in other post, the lobby is great and updated. The Hallways can... More

We weren't sure what to expect based on reviews we read, but we were excited to see the beautiful lobby and our room was very nice:). The view from the rooftop lounge area was awesome! Our room was nice and clean. We were right by Magnificent Mile and Navy Pier! It was just perfect.

I checked in late, they were at total capacity and there were no real rooms left. That night I had to stay in a very dark room with a teeny part-of-a-window. The staff totally hooked me up the next day and put me in a Junior Suite. Really, really fantastic! Sliver view of the lake, a zillion windows and space... More

The location can't be beat. It's half a block east of Michigan ave and just North of the loop. The hotel is kind of basic. The rooms were all right. Clean - maybe a bit too clean. Room smelled a bit of Ammonia the first night. The AC was noisy - and the room was either a bit warm or... More

Location is a huge plus on the magnificent mile. Plenty of restaurants, bars, shops and attractions all within walking distance. Our room was small but had everything we needed and the water pressure was great (which has been hard to find on our trip so far)! Staff were lovely and friendly and because I had become a Choice privileges member... More

This "old school" Chicago hotel has lots of charm... along with some room for improvement. The check-in was almost seamless. I reserved the room for 2 nights through Priceline.com (Express Deal offer). Their offer was for a 3 Star hotel near the Magnificent Mile for 107 per night. Once Priceline added it's fees to the 214 the total was almost... More

Standard hotel but well located. Room are clean but bed are uncomfortable. We did our reservation on internet having a good price but they try to raise the price on site. After we show the internet copy, they left it at the same price. Without that, i recommend the hotel.

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
