More affordable rates than other area hotels
Some recent guests were disappointed with the high parking rates
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? Try marble bathrooms with separate tubs and showers, Bose sound systems and picturesque views of downtown Chicago and the John Hancock Observatory available in the rooms and suites. Recent guests say the Sofitel Chicago's accommodations possess a cosmopolitan, French flair representative of the posh Sofitel brand. The distinctly Euro feel infused in the modern decor is certainly easy on the eyes, but visitors are even more impressed by the hotel's convenient location – it's the rhombus-shaped building just two blocks off The Magnificent Mile – and its friendly staff members. 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 Mediterranean cuisine served for moderate rates at the CDA. The only gripe among recent lodgers? The high cost of parking. Members of the ALL - Accor Live Limitless rewards program can cut costs even further by using points to pay for their stay.
