Chicago's MileNorth hotel is plopped right in the heartbeat of the midwestern metropolis.
Described as an "urban retreat", the hotel is in walking distance of the Magnificent Mile - the home of over 460 boutiques and shops including Cartier, Giorgio Armani, Michael Kors, Hugo Boss, Tiffany & Co., Chanel, Harry Winston and many more.
The four-star property is also very close by The Art Institute of Chicago, Millennium Park, and Lake Michigan.
But you can be satisfied with MileNorth without ever leaving the hotel grounds. If you'd like to see a mile-high view of the city, you can visit their indoor and outdoor rooftop bar and lounge, C-View.
The rooms and suites are first-class, too. You can choose from a collection of Studio Guestrooms, Signature Studios, and CityView studios. If you'd really like to elevate, you can choose from the LoftView or CityView lofts.
The bi-level lofts are designed with a residential vibe and are complete with mini bars, flat screen TVs, executive work stations, and more.
But the greatest feature, as told by some recent guests, may just be the free Wi-Fi. These days, that's like the Holy Grail.
MileNorth also hosts weddings. With a staff that's received many praises for hospitality on your side, they can plan your special day from the ceremony on the ground floor to the reception on the rooftop. The hotel will cater to up to 120 guests.
And like many great hotels, they also have special offers. In the Countdown to Winter special offer, you can receive 30% off your stay of three of more nights if you book by August 31, 2012. If you've got AMEX in your wallet, you can receive 20% off and a complimentary room upgrade if you book that promotion and pay with your American Express card.
From inside the property to the Magnificent Mile, the MileNorth has much to offer by way of urban elegance.
