It is not even a full block away from Michigan Ave. Many familiar places to eat nearby. Panera/Dunkin and Baskin Robbins/7-Eleven were all easy walks. Also enjoyed West Egg for b'fast and of course had our fill of Garrett's Popcorn right next door. Onsite Starbucks was nice. The room (2201) had a view of Mich Ave and we liked our...

Stayed here while attending a 2-day training class in the hotel. Great location just off Mag Mile. Check-in and other service was super fast and friendly.

This is such a nice hotel to stay in for a lower cost hotel. The staff was very friendly and the location is fantastic. I loved the fact that they had valet parking since it's so hard to park in the city. We got a special rate that included the parking. The only reason I gave it four stars is...

This hotel is really great. It's pretty much close to everything. Food, shopping, etc. I was actually expecting a better view of the city from my room, but didn't get it. The buildings around the hotel is taller, or I'm probably on the wrong side of the hotel. Other than that, I had a great stay.

Neighbourhood 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.
