Magnificent Mile Hotels

The Magnificent Mile hotels figure among the best and most popular hotels in Chicago. Much of the reason for this is associated with location. Guests of these hotels enjoy quick access to the city’s most concentrated shopping district. They are also within easy reach of all the other downtown attractions, including both Grant Park and Millennium Park. Only adding to the allure of the Magnificent Mile hotels is the ease with which guests can get to the North Side neighborhoods, including the ritzy Gold Coast and fashionable Lincoln Park. In this article, we focus on three hotels that are either on or near the Magnificent Mile. One of these hotels, the Best Western PLUS River North, is among  the general area’s very best lodging deals. Considering everything that they have to offer, the other two hotels that are featured below also offer plenty in the way of overall value.

Situated at 125 West Ohio Street, the Best Western PLUS River North Hotel (pictured at top) is within a half mile of the Magnificent Mile shopping. Thanks to the hotel’s moderate rates, guests can hope to free up funds for shopping sprees or other pursuits. This is the only downtown Chicago hotel with free parking, and also complimentary is the high-speed internet access. Other reasons to consider the Best Western PLUS River North Hotel include the sparkling indoor pool, the rooftop sundeck, and the on-site restaurant. The restaurant, it should be noted, serves up deep dish pizza, which is a Chicago institution. If you’re still not convinced that this is a good place to stay in Chicago, then maybe the quality of the guest units will push you over the edge. Each of the 150 rooms is tastefully decorated and provides guests with everything that they should need in order to enjoy a rewarding stay.
