Overall, I really enjoyed my stay at MileNorth. (We stayed two nights over Valentine's Day.)
1) Service: the staff at this hotel could NOT be nicer. They were quite possibly the friendliest, most helpful hotel staff I've ever met.
2) Location: could not be better. Right off Michigan Ave by Water Tower Place. (The old Affinia Hotel.)
3) Room: The room was HUGE, and the spa shower was wonderful.
4) The special rate we got, especially staying on Valentine's night, was excellent.
Less than perfect:
1) The hotel is under renovation, something I didn't know when I booked. (They were painting the main hallway when we got there.) The restaurant isn't open yet, except for breakfast. Not a dealbreaker, but unexpected.
2) The decor is a bit bland and dated for a fairly new boutique hotel. The simplicity is good, but better lamps and a few pops of color and texture would help.
3) The overnight parking rate ($52) is atrocious. (We parked a few blocks away on Rush street for $32 for 24-hour valet service.)
