We wanted a place close to Magnificent Mile and it was close. It was also close to an ambulance service. The room was terribly overpriced & extremely loud. We could hear the people in the room across the hall eating potato chips watching Saturday college football. The bathroom door didn't close (must have shifted during the earthquake of 2008). Cujo...

Visited recently with family. I had read a lot of the reviews and was prepared for the hotel not to be great and it really wasn't. The location was fantastic though and we spent a lot of time out and about. Our room was tiny and there was a lot of noise from ambulance sirens. Beds quite comfortable. Bathroom absolutely... More

Hotel is old and in need of some updates. It was clean and service is really good. It is in the middle of it all, minutes from everything. Highly recommend if you dont intend to spend a lot of time in your room.

It is located only a block away from Magnificent Mile, and has lots going on around. It has restaurants, coffee shops, markets and lots of stores from the Mag Mile. It is close to the Navy Pier (15min walk) and the Hancock Center (10min walk) as well It does not offer breakfast, nor does it offer a fridge in the... More

I arrived very late at the hotel and when I entered my room I noticed it had not been prepared. At the reception they offered me an upgrade without discussion. This room was spatious but outdated like the hotel. The room was fairly clean. The location of the hotel is great. In absolute terms the price is high but relative... More

The bathroom was like third world war zone. Never seen worse in my life. Read the reviews like I did and your expectations will be set correctly. It's the location above anything else. Parking is convenient but expensive. Would have liked some options to park myself.

The lobby is nice. The front desk people were nice. The bath towels feel like loofahs. The location is great except for all the ambulance sirens. But the rooms are gross and tiny! So if you want a really cheap room - you found it. You definitely get what you paid for.

This property needs some attention - particularly the elevators that are worrisome. The staff is quite nice, but the rooms, while tidy, are well-worn. Wondering why Red Roof would not want a more appealing site and rooms the location is great! Contrary to some reviewers, I did not find it filthy and immediately check out, but stayed the entire time.... More

Hotels on Mag Mile are notoriously overpriced, so when we found this hotel we were very excited. No hotel parking for our car - that was a disappointment. But we could work out a deal to get reduced rate to be able to park around the corner at a 24-hour lot. Rooms are not large, as everything else being in... More

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.
