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
You really can’t beat the location, 5 mins walk to Red line cta, on the Mag mile, and loads of restaurants in walking distance.
Room size fantastic for a city hotel, service great as didn’t really need anything in 5 days. Check in/out really efficient. Very clean and comfortable. Wi-fi excellent in room.
Not so good; The rooftop bar wasn’t open; disappointing really. Water pressure was too low. Some of the staff were striking/demonstrating outside all week
Needed to go out for breakfast as no real choice here, but plenty of options very close by. Would recommend Sunny Side Up for breakfast
Overall, I’d definitely stay here again given the value for money room rates.
Check in took long, but the reservations person comped us for food. Clean, intelligent rooms. Great, invisible service. Beautifully appointed. Fantastic shopping, great restaurants all within easy walking.
We had a great stay here from the time we arrived till we left , great location near the mile and food places as well. Well the rooms are brill plenty of space massive tv great views from the 27 floor beds really comfortable, if you don’t require house keeping and put the sign out they will give u a voucher to use down stairs .
We stayed a couple of nights in downtown Chicago at the Cambria Hotel this past weekend. The hotel room itself made up for ANY lack of views. The large windows made the space bright. The bed was very comfortable. I was able to even relax on the couch. The staff was very friendly. The Cafe in the lobby is a nice addition as well so we didnt have to run around to find a warm beverage. I recommend this hotel to business travelers, couples and singles.
Wow! What a great location in Downtown Chicago. We were about 1 or 2 blocks right from the Magnificent Mile and right next door to Gino's East Pizzeria. The hotel had a nice lobby bar to hangout in before our dinner or after check in. Our room was spotless and so much space, I felt like I was in a studio apartment. Living area, king size bed, plus much more. The woman at the front desk was very polite and very helpful. If you're looking for a great hotel and location, I'd definitely recommend this one.
