U.S. News Review

Recent guests consistenly praise MileNorth for its stellar location. Steps from the Magnificent Mile and within walking distance to the theater district, the lake, Navy Pier and the Tribune Tower, MileNorth is both convenient and, compared to other high-end hotels in the area, affordable. Travelers describe the rooms here as spacious, comfortable and stylish with neoclassical and art deco design elements, minifridges, flat-screen TVs and complimentary high-speed Internet access. To make the most of MileNorth's location (and the accommodations' large windows), travelers suggest requesting a room on one of the upper floors — this will also help you avoid the disruptive street noise below. When you're not out on the town, spend some time getting the lay of the land from the 52EIGHTY rooftop bar; here, you can enjoy a cocktail and a smattering of small plates alongside excellent views of downtown Chicago. Another aspect of this hotel visitors were impressed with? Its polite and professional staff.
