    The Peninsula Chicago
    Chicago, IL
    #1 in Best Hotels in Magnificent Mile, Chicago
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1810 reviewsTripAdvisor (1810)
    Free WiFi

    Occupying prime real estate on Chicago's coveted Magnificent Mile, The Peninsula Chicago combines Hong Kong's cosmopolitan flair with the Windy City's Midwestern charm. Travelers describe the guest rooms as comfortable thanks to their creamy color palette and plush furniture, not to mention their modern techie touches, like a bedside remote command station that controls the lights, television and room temperatures. Meanwhile, the renowned Peninsula Spa is in a class by itself: earning The Peninsula Chicago many accolades from health and leisure magazines. Another honorable mention goes to the afternoon tea served in the lobby bar, which visitors say is a nice and welcome touch. During your stay, guests recommend making time for the tasty Cantonese dishes served in the Shanghai Terrace restaurant. However, for many travelers, it was The Peninsula Chicago's friendly service staff that convinced them to stay here again.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 3584 reviewsTripAdvisor (3584)
    Free WiFi

    Previous lodgers rave about this North Michigan Avenue hotel's refinement and unbeatable location. Sitting just steps from Chicago's Magnificent Mile, the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago is central to all of the city's best restaurants, shops and nightlife. After you've sufficiently tested the limits of your credit card, retreat to one of the hotel's soundproofed spa treatment rooms to enjoy a relaxing massage or skin renewal treatment. Before you call it a night, previous guests highly recommend sitting down to dinner in the Allium's dining room, where diners are treated to fresh, farm-to-table Midwest cuisine. When it's time to bed down, this Four Seasons hotel's well-appointed accommodations provide a comfortable escape. Previous guests love the elegant decor, which combines contemporary fittings (like flat-screen TVs and iHome stereos) with 20th century-inspired design accents and spacious marble bathrooms. Recent visitors recommend splurging on the lake view accomodations, rather than the rooms with the city skyline vistas.

    Free WiFi

    This fashionable hotel on East Walton gathers acclaim from recent guests for its elegant design and prime location in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood.

    Free WiFi

    Travelers commend the Park Hyatt Chicago's attentive and responsive staff, along with its enviable seat along The Magnificent Mile. But there's more to this hotel than its convenient location.

Or retreat to your spacious digs, which include oversized baths, modern decor and views of the Chicago cityscape or Lake Michigan. Guest rooms here also come with standard amenities like flat-screen TVs, minibars and complimentary Wi-Fi access. And though the hotel is surrounded by some of the city's top eateries, recent guests recommend sitting down to dinner at hotel's NoMI Kitchen, which serves up contemporary American cuisine alongside Chi-Town views. And because this property bears the Hyatt name, World of Hyatt members can earn or cash in points here for additional stay benefits.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2622 reviewsTripAdvisor (2622)
    Free WiFi

    The Thompson Chicago sits in the Near North Side neighborhood, one block back from Chicago's Michigan Avenue near Oak Street Beach and close to many attractions and restaurants. Recent guests loved the location of this Thompson property and all agree the decor in the lobby, including the large fireplace with its library feel, strike a nice balance between refined and homey. Past visitors said that everyone from the general manager to the doorman is congenial – and they're especially skilled at remembering names here. The Thompson Chicago's rooms offer a sleek, sophisticated design, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Lake Michigan and The Magnificent Mile, 400-thread-count Sferra linens and bathrooms with rainfall showers. Additional conveniences include the two dining options that are popular with guests as well as locals. Nico Osteria is an Italian-inspired seafood restaurant, serving dishes like lobster spaghetti and swordfish pancetta, while the Salone Nico keeps up the European feel with an extensive wine list from Greece and Italy, although both dining options can be a bit pricey for some travelers' tastes.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4800 reviewsTripAdvisor (4800)
    Free WiFi

    There's a good chance that you can enjoy the Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile's upscale amenities for a more reasonable rate than the other nearby high-end hotels. What amenities?

When staying here, you will have complimentary access to the property's on-site fitness center and, according to past guests, you'll need it should you choose to dine on-site. Travelers are fond of the contemporary French cuisine served for moderate rates at the Café des Architectes.

    Loews Chicago Hotel
    Chicago, IL
    #11 in Best Hotels in Magnificent Mile, Chicago
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2703 reviewsTripAdvisor (2703)
    Free WiFi

    If you're hoping to be within walking distance to some of the Windy City's top attractions, this newer Loews outpost should be at the top of your list, according to recent travelers. Opened in early 2015, the Loews Chicago Hotel has already wowed guests with its attentive service and enviable location just outside the Loop (less than a mile from Navy Pier), and its cool, contemporary decor. Past guests particularly loved the rooms, especially the comfy beds and spacious bathrooms. Accommodations are also equipped with Keurig coffee makers, flat-screen TVs, floor-to-ceiling windows and free Wi-Fi access. The other star of the show here: Streeterville Social, which bills itself as the city's largest outdoor rooftop terrace. When you're not admiring the skyline views or sipping on cocktails, sample some of the "refined street food" from the rooftop kitchen or challenge your fellow travelers to Jenga (the lounge boasts a custom giant set). For heartier fare, make reservations at Rural Society, the on-site Argentinean steakhouse helmed by "Iron Chef" Jose Garces. Other amenities that stood out to recent guests: the fitness center (and its 75-foot-long indoor lap pool), the spa and the Audi car service, which drops guests anywhere within a 3-mile radius of the hotel. Plus, if you're a member of the Loews YouFirst program, you can earn and redeem free perks by staying here.

    Two blocks west of The Magnificent Mile and four blocks north of the Loop, the Kimpton Palomar Chicago is a convenient lodging choice for sightseers. This Kimpton hotel offers easy access to some of the Windy City's most popular attractions. But there's more to this hotel than its location. Previous guests praise the rooms, describing them as spacious and comfortable with floor-to-ceiling windows, a number of varied pillow styles, Frette linens and artwork inspired by the Chicago World's Fair. Although you'll be surrounded by the numerous eateries of Chicago's Near North area, some guests recommend trying the New American cuisine served at the trendy Sable Kitchen & Bar. Recent travelers also loved the wealth of freebies provided in the lobby, including complimentary coffee in the morning and wine tastings in the evening. And the service staff – from the concierge to the housekeeping employees – earns high marks as well.

    W Chicago - Lakeshore

    #13 in Best Hotels in Magnificent Mile, Chicago
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2041 reviewsTripAdvisor (2041)

    Overlooking Lake Michigan (as you might've guessed from its name), this W hotel offers guests a trendy Chicago home base just minutes from some of the city's top attractions. Popular hotel features include the Bliss Spa on the eighth floor, as well as CURRENT restaurant, which serves seasonal modern Italian cuisine. Meanwhile, the accommodations feature decor with bright pops of color here and there, as well as LCD flat-screen TVs, minifridges, high-speed Internet access and amenities for your pet, should you require them. Guests say they enjoy the W Chicago - Lakeshore's waterfront location, but some found difficulty with an at-times too-cool staff and were disappointed with charges for in-room Wi-Fi. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile
    Chicago, IL
    #14 in Best Hotels in Magnificent Mile, Chicago
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 5459 reviewsTripAdvisor (5459)

    The InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile still has touches of its historic 1929 incarnation as the Medinah Athletic Club. The original hand-stenciled ceilings and tapestries continue to adorn the lobby, while rooms in the Historic Tower have Old World features like vintage patterns and gold accents. And though much of the original athletic club's facilities were reconfigured to make way for the hotel's amenities, the junior Olympic swimming pool (in all its vintage opulence) remains. Still, this Chicago hotel has kept up with the times: Guest rooms come equipped with high-speed internet access (for a fee), flat-screen TVs and minibars. In addition to this InterContinental's antique charm, recent visitors also laud the hotel's mid-Magnificent Mile locale and its exceptional staff. The only thing travelers lamented was the fee for in-room Wi-Fi and the pricey charge for on-site parking. The Eno wine bar, however, earns praise from discerning diners for its master sommelier selections, and travelers also appreciate the hearty plates served at Michael Jordan's Steakhouse. The icing on the cake: Members of the IHG Rewards Club loyalty program can earn points by staying here or cash in rewards to help cover the cost of their stay.

    Free WiFi

    The dana hotel and spa in Chicago's Near North district makes a great home base for those who want to take advantage of the Windy City's long list of things to do while hanging their hat somewhere stylish. Travelers love this boutique hotel's swanky ambiance. The accommodations are fairly minimal in terms of decor, but each room comes equipped with a rainforest shower, Egyptian cotton linens and a Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin sound system. However, the main attraction here is the view. Guest rooms feature expansive wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows that allow guests to look out over the city. Guests recommend booking a corner room on a higher floor to have multiple Chicago views, but should you end up on a lower floor, you can always take in the sights from the hotel's stylish Vertigo Sky Lounge. On another note, you should know that the stylish dana hotel's day spa is extremely popular. So if you want a weekend massage and facial, consider making your appointment several months in advance.
