When our connecting flight out of Midway was cancelled late at night, this hotel kindly took on six of us.

This hotel is in a great location for getting around Chicago. The hotel restaurant had great food and a good selection of drinks. The rooms were pretty small and average but for a downtown Chicago hotel it was to be expected. I would stay here again for the location.

Staying in Magnificent Mile

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.
