“Not impressed”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

We were on a tour and this was a group booking made by the tour company so to some extent you have to take pot luck with what you get roomwise. We ended up with a small room (probably meant for a single person although there were two of us) that had broken blinds so room was in complete darkness in broad day light. Complained to front desk but didn't get anywhere as hotel was full and they couldnt swap the room. I was then told that there were other rooms where the blinds had also failed and they hadn't yet got round to fixing them all. By way of compensation they did give us a free breakfast but it completely spoilt our first visit to Chicago. A decent hotel would get someone in to fix or replace the blinds straight away or not give them to paying guests at all. I have seen other reviews with people experiencing similar problems. It's a shame as the hotel has a great location but until they get the blinds issues sorted I would avoid.

Room Tip: Make sure you request a room that has working blinds when booking this hotel.

Great location! Close to everything, friendly staff and sizable room for a boutique hotel. We traveled as a couple, but would gladly stay here as a family. In house restaurant was delicious for breakfast and very affordable with an excellent coffeebar. Staff was engaging and clearly dedicated to ensuring we enjoyed our stay. We will definitely stay again.

Great location, great service, delicious food at the restaurant and the bed was extremely comfortable. They even let us bring our bikes to our room! Oh and I loved their valet, definitely worth the price!

Unexpectedly nice hotel! Perfect location just off Michigan Avenue. The best restaurants and shopping are just a block or two away. The staff were all extremely friendly. The room was roomy, comfortable and well appointed. Onsite amenities were great. Would stay there again when we come back in September. Highly recommend this hotel.

Loved this hotel. Stayed for business and is definitely stay again for pleasure. The staff was friendly and courteous, and the suite-style room was excellent. Beautiful view of Water Tower and right near Needless Markup and Saks.

MIle North has changed names and management since my last stay a couple of years ago. It is well located for all downtown Chicago activities and is convenient to great restaurants and shopping. The lobby/bar/restaurant area is comfortable for lounging and convenient for grabbing a drink or bite to eat. The rooms are adequate although, similar to another recent reviewer, I discovered that the thermostat in the room, although allowing me to set a temperature, actually had no effect on the room temperature at all, either in the cooling or heating modes. The room was clean and well furnished although it would be helpful if the staff were a little more proactive in replacing light bulbs and assuring that lamps were operative. The staff is very friendly and helpful and proactive in offering assistance. Overall this is a very good hotel and I would not hesitate to return here on future visits to Chicago.

I stayed at this hotel over the memorial day weekend. The location is excellent, just off the magnificent mile tucked in a quite cross street close to public transportation. The room was good and bed was comfortable. The bathroom was clean and wall mounted TV which could be moved to face the bed was a plus.

I got the hotel through Priceline so it was good value but I don't think paying full price for this hotel is justified as I won't rate it a high end 4 star.

The front desk was kind enough to hail a cab by going to the street when I requested for one, good service!
