The next day I walked down the Millennium Monument and hangout around outside while the NFL draft was going on. I don't even have time to go north to the Water Tower. Inside,... More

Just stayed at the Interconti for three nights on business. While staff was very friendly, the room was ok (I was on a low floor) and the mattress was somewhat worn. There was also no space at all for larger luggage...Internet worked well and fast so I could get some work done. Breakfast was just average and not very good... More

Great location and good room on corner of upper floor in the older building. Some traffic noise but not intrusive. Room large, fresh and tastefully furnished. Only dining is steakhouse, quality and service fair only and relatively expensive. Bar in lobby noisy with multiple TVs, not suitable for a quiet drink. Check-in staff somewhat abrupt but were very busy. Concierge... 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.
