“Huge!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

This hotel was booked by great Rail Journeys and is very good.
Must have been the biggest room I have ever stayed in!
Due to Amtrak running very late did not get the most out of time there, which was a great pity.
Coffee Bar in lobby very good, cannot same the same about breakfast room. I think this is franchised out, only visit if you want to pay over the odds for poor service and cold food,
But as for the hotel itself, we were very happy

We had a great time at the MileNorth! My husband and stayed for my 30th Birthday weekend! The hotel overall was very comfortable and had a wonderful atmosphere! We stayed in the St Claire Suite. The room what very nice with a great view into the city and the room was very clean! If we travel to Chicago again we would try to stay again! Great location for shopping and right off Mag Mile!

We just spent two nights at MileNorth, and when it comes to this hotel, you couldn't ask for a better location! This place is in the heart of it all, with most of the best attractions within walking distance. You couldn't ask for a safer area to be in- with the hospital right next door there is definitely a professional vibe as you walk through the neighbourhood. We brought along our 7-year old daughter who was very happy that American Girl was right around the corner, but there is also a number of parks, green space, and playgrounds within a few minutes walk (as well as the beach and Navy Pier close by) which is ideal for those with kids. The hotel itself was very clean and comfortable, with great value for money. The room was recently updated, and it looked fantastic! Parking is never cheap in the big city, but we were able to save 50% by using SpotHero.com to get a discount on the parking garage right across the street. Reception staff were always polite in the lobby, but over the phone they did not seem to go out of their way to help out. This was probably the only negative from our experience. Overall though, this will be our new go-to home away from home in Chicago. As an aside, our little one forgot her favourite stuffed bunny in the room- we are just waiting to see if they found it and can help send it home. Fingers crossed!

Stayed here for a night in late June. We flew in from Boston and arrived early. Luckily, the hotel was able to furnish us with a room. We booked a City View King Loft Suite through Jetsetter. It was a great room with a comfortable bed. Room was very welcoming and a good size as the desk was on a separate level a couple steps up. We ate at Gino's East next door, walked the Magnificent Mile and down to Navy Pier as well. The cafe in the lobby served Starbucks and there was an onsite restaurant as well (we did not eat there though). Nice hotel with great rooms. Can't miss!

Overall, I was a bit disappointed in this hotel. Based off of the other reviews and high rating, I expected a lot more. It seems like I may have been in one of the older rooms? Not sure? But looking at the other travelers photos, our room definitely did not match up to theirs. Overall, the room was a decent size. The bathroom was extremely tiny though, with not one shelf or any counter space whatsoever. We did not have the separate vanity area like some of the other travelers did. That would have been really nice. The carpet was pretty gross and I wouldn't dare walk on it barefoot. The beds though, were really comfortable.
The staff at the front desk weren't very inviting. They definitely didn't go out of their way to help us. They also charged a "service fee" of $4.95/day which we weren't told about until we checked out...not sure what that even covers? The only thing this hotel has going for it, is location. It's an average hotel with average amenities, I won't be back.
