This hotel was located right in the heart of the city of Chicago. We could easily walk to dinning and shopping. I gave this a four star rating because the room was small and we had difficulty controlling the temperature in our room. We were treated well by hotel staff and the expo shuttles picked us up right from the... More

In the middle of a busy street and a busy city, this hotel is a quiet oasis. Great for business travelers! Rooms are not huge but comfortable. Starbucks in the lobby. Great front desk with helpful personnel.

Beautiful property in shopping district convenient to everything Chicago is known for. Michael Jordan's steakhouse is incredible. We had a fabulous time and were treated extremely well by the staff. We will definitely stay here again.

I stayed in the historic tower and absolutely loved the renovation they just completed. The rooms in this tower are larger - and they have been redone in an Art Deco style. The light fixtures in the hallways are very cool and add to the ambiance of the hotel. (Really - I never notice the hallway light fixtures but these... More

Had a wonderful 3-night stay at this hotel while attending a conference. Staff is top notch, very professioinal and accommodating. It is very busy outside, but upon stepping inside it's calm, quiet and humming along efficiently. My room was very nice and clean. Rooms are a little on the small side, but that is not ununsual for an older hotel... More

This hotel makes us europeans feel at home. Bed is very confortable and furniture in excellent status. The place is rather quiet for downtown but the very best is its olympic pool at the 12 th floor. I have never seen before such a nice decorated olympic pool . Like a cathedral from the 18 th century. It feels great... More

I stayed here for 3 nights. It was a great hotel. Great room and the location is perfect. It all ended on my last morning when I received my laundry back missing two items. One designer jean another pair of dress trousers, together worth several hundred dollars. It was reported and nothing came of it. It seems to just be... More

This is the second time I stayed at this hotel, both times for business. It's a very nice hotel, located right on Magnificent Mile and therefore convenient to shopping and other amenities of the city. The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, and they have a great little wine and chocolate bar attached to the hotel. The concierge staff can... More

A great location. I like the older side where the rooms have been redone. Very comfortable. Many elevators for access to the floors and/or lobby you might need. Starbuck's next door. Great taxi service at most any time if needed. You are on Michigan Avenue so everything is within reasonable walking distance. Close enough to the lake so easy distance... More

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.
