          Magnificent Mile
          Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
          Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
          Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
          River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
          neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
          place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
          shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
          dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.

          Is the property family friendly? We are planning a 6-7 night stay with our three year old boy.

          Yes, I think it is. I saw other small children there as well. It does seem geared more toward couples and business professionals but it's also very friendly, and in a great location next to shopping and restaurants.

          Like the others in the thread, our room did not have a terrace. There was an open air enclosed terrace just off the check-in and bar area, but closed during winter.
