Location perfect but the hotel is dirty, poor maintanance and old. My family stayed there five days and in that period we never saw anybody cleaning the room or the corrridor but we could see the same piece of paper on the same place, the same dust, and so on. Doors broken, ceiling panel cracked, rusty bathtub, and a long... More

This hotel is very well situated within walking distance of many of the amazing sites of Chicago. The hotel could do with a little bit of modernization as said before its "ok". The aircon in the room was extremely appreciated but it was very noisy.

We booked because of our dog but ended up boarding her. All of the employees are the nicest and friendliest from front desk to valet. The hotel needs major work. Cracks in ceiling baseboard missing. Again only booked because of the dog. Again staff friendly and helpful.

Thank gordonsj

The location is excellent but the hotel is poorly maintained, run-down and shabby. The A/C unit smelled badly of mold and mildew; these smells permeated clothing left in the room. Lights were not replaced in the room or on the elevator panel. Hallway appeared to be not regularly vacuumed. Yes, you're paying for the location. But look elsewhere for whatever... More

Okay, so the hotel has seen better days. If you can afford the Marriott, then go for it. But for the budget traveler, this is a great place. Two tips: The air conditioner is controlled by the thermostat on the wall - not the unit itself. Also, I recommend using the SpotHero parking app to find a place to park,... More

Stayed here when visiting a uni friend, it was perfect for sight seeing and easy to get to the train station. Hotel was clean and tidy. Would stay again for sure! Some taxi drivers did get mixed up with the red head piano bar for some reason!! Enjoy!

All I can say is for a cheap budget you can go but realize it really needs updating. Upsetting to see a hole in the ceiling on the 16th floor. On the 4th floor there was plastic on the carpet in hallway. The room across from us was being (I think) for bed bugs. They had heaters in there. I... More

We went during the Lollapalooza weekend so unsurprisingly all hotels in downtown were either booked or extremely expensive. I booked a room for two at Red Roof for 550 CAD for two nights (Inclusive of taxes etc). The hotel has a very very very good location. Literally 2 minutes from Garrets Popcorn, Magnificent Mile, River Cruise etc. HOWEVER the condition... More

We got a suite, pull out bed was on an angle and you can feel the bars through the mattress, king bed also was not comfortable. Rooms need serious updating. Our room had no light in it. I'm not one to be picky but for the price I could have stayed somewhere with much better service and comfort.

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.
