We spent a long weekend in the City and chose a hotel in the north end of Magnificent Mile that was close to the Lake and on a quieter street than many of hotels further south on the 'mile'. It cost a bit more than hotels to the south but we knew it would be hot, steamy and crowded. We... More

The Good: Location The Bad: Musty smell in hallways Room carpeting soiled Elevators - all 3 out and waited 15 min on high floor not knowing (appears to be a frequent problem). Elevators out on 2 days. Entering room: Garbage on floor (M&Ms, papers) Hotel is outdated and needs a complete overhaul. Would not recommend.

Visited for a long weekend to attend a Cubs game with my husband. We are familiar with the area and knew that the hotel was in a great location, but this was our first stay. Lobby and rooms were beautiful, although the rooms are fairly small. Hallway on 8th floor smelled a bit mildew like, but not at all noticeable... More

Really liked the hotel. Great location, with shops, restaurants, bars and close the beaches of Lake Michigan. It has an old world charm about it, yet modern facilities. Only two minor points: the guest elevators were not working during my stay and the shower was not the best, not terrible, just not the best. Really comfy, large king size bed.... More

We stayed at the Millennium Friday - Sunday July 22. We come to Chicago twice a year to enjoy the food, shopping and entertainment. This hotel is a gem. First the location is absolutely perfect.

The Knickerbocker has a great location just a short walk off the Magnificent Mile and our room came in about a $100 per night less than neighboring hotels. When you see a lower rate on an older hotel you wonder if it is not kept up, but the room, while small, had a modern bathroom. The old elevators were a... More

Had a pleasant stay at this hotel, in a great location in Chicago. The room we had was very nice, but I did not give 5 stars, as it is tired in places. The staff generally were pleasant and helpful. Would stay here again if visiting Chicago, if their price was right.

This hotel is located right at the beginning of Chicago's "Magnificent Mile". It is an older hotel and definitely have the atmosphere of Chicago in the 1920's. It is full of history and you almost expect Al Capone to show up in the lobby. The room was on the smaller side, but very comfortable and clean. The coffee shop off... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
