Just east of Michigan Avenue, MileNorth mixes retro homey details like reclaimed wood and subway tile walls and a bar made of vintage card catalogs with industrial mint and cherry light fixtures and geometric wire bar stools. Upstairs, the 215 rooms have a more clean-lined modern look with modish green and orange accents. Enjoy the views from Joel Hillman’s Chicago style windows, inspired by the city’s architectural traditions.
Bed & Bath
Upstairs, the 215 rooms are spacious, bright and cozy. The bilevel entryways lend a homey feel as do pillowy beds with velevty soft throw pillows. Each room includes iPod docks, mini fridges and 32-inch flatscreen TVs (though we prefer to take in the views from the near floor-to-ceiling windows).
The lobby doubles as an inviting living room and its Barista Bar can whip up simple bites such as chorizo mac & cheese, wagyu sliders or flatbread sandwiches with lamb, black garlic, piquillo peppers and pickled shallot. And if you’re looking to pump some iron, there’s a 24-7 gym available.
In the Area
If you crave designer labels, walk along Michigan Avenue, where more than 400 storefronts line the city’s famous Magnificent Mile. But if it’s one-of-a-kind items you’re after, your best bets are the Wicker Park and Bucktown neighborhoods. Chicago is famous for its pizza, but it’s also known for great restaurants, including Girl & The Goat and Karyn’s, run by the woman who made vegan sexy. Don’t miss the laughs at the world famous Second City, where such luminaries as Dan Aykroyd, Steve Carell and Tina Fey have performed.
How to Get There
The hotel is at the city of Chicago. Very convenient location.
The decor is dated, but clean.The rooms are very big and clean. Service is good.
The rooftop is really nice. The bar area is well equipped.
This hotel is just a block off the magnificent mile and in a great location! Very close to the water tower, close to shopping. Front desk staff was very helpful and prior to arrival I had made a phone call with questions and each time everyone was helpful. You may check your bags if you arrive before your room is ready. Great decor, the lobby had nice seating plus a bar/snack/coffee area which was very handy. We were on the 22nd floor and had a decent view. We looked over a parking lot but weren’t looking at another building so that was good. We had a king suite which had a seating area and it was very roomy. The bathroom was small but we had a handicapped accessible room so that might be why it was more compact. There were 3 steps down into the main space. Decor was very nice, almost had a retro feel. Everything was clean. If I had to point out any area that needed more attention on cleaning it would have been the bathroom door. I could see finger prints from make up use from previous stays on the door and the door had frosted glass in it, the ledge around that glass was dirty and dusty. Other than that it was very clean and comfortable!! I loved this hotel and will definitely try to stay here on future visits.
Great location just of the Magnificent Mile with short distance from shopping and attractions. Spacious and clean rooms, but the staff certainly could offer more smiles. Some staff were on strike, maybe thats why they were not happy?
