My friend and I stayed at the Courtyard Chicago Downtown which is a stone's throw off the Magnificent Mile. Overall it was a great stay; the hotel is easy to locate and very central to the Magnificent Mile area - we were about four blocks from the Hancock Tower (you can walk there in 5-10 minutes depending on crowds). The...

This hotel has a VERY good location, north of the river, only a block off Michigan. Super polite and professional staff, comfy bed. Could use a bit of updating. I absolutely hated the carpeting in the room...looked like it was from 1975. Other than that though, good hotel. I would stay here again!

Stayed here for a "guy's weekend". The location is great...good restaurants within walking distance and the red line is just a couple of blocks away for a quick ride over to Wrigley. The room was clean and met expectations. Would definitely stay here again.

Neighbourhood Profile
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. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
