The ‘Windy City’s’ iconic Magnificent Mile runs along the prestigious Michigan Avenue, from the Chicago River to Oak Street, and is home to the city’s most popular historic landmarks and tourist attractions. The Magnificent Mile is therefore the prime location for this luxurious 5* Hot Rate hotel, available to discerning travellers at exclusively reduced rates for the perfect city break or executive business trip. Premium city hotels such as the Trump International Hotel & Tower, the Conrad Hilton Chicago and the Intercontinental have all previously featured in the elite 5* collection. Quality hotels such as these often offer indoor pools, indulgent spa services, fitness centres, world-class restaurants and professional business centres with access to free Wi-Fi internet.

Whether in Chicago for business or pleasure, this Magnificent Mile hotel enjoys one of the most sought after locations in the city. Dominated by Chicago’s famed skyscrapers, tourists need only step outside of the hotel lobby to experience the city’s stunning assortment of architectural styles. Located towards the Chicago River end of North Michigan Avenue is the inspiring, neo-gothic Tribune Tower, home of the prominent Chicago Tribune newspaper. The Tower is especially famous for its collection of building fragments from historic sites around the world, including the Taj Mahal, the Berlin Wall and the Great Wall of China. Other must-see landmarks in the local area include the Chicago Water Tower, the Allerton Hotel and the John Hancock Center.
The Magnificent Mile is a shopaholic’s paradise due to its concentration of upmarket department stores and luxury fashion boutiques. Hotel guests can make the short walk from the hotel to browse all that Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue have to offer, as well as checking out the largest Ralph Lauren in the world. After hitting the shops, tourists are advised to sample some of the city’s famed nightlife scene which is mainly centred around the Rush Street area. With a selection of swanky VIP clubs, classy wine bars and lively jazz lounges, there is plenty to do after dark as well.
After a packed itinerary of sightseeing, hotel guests may wish to spend an afternoon relaxing in one of Downtown Chicago’s pretty public parks; the nearest being the Cityfront Plaza, the Odgen Plaza and the River Esplanade Park.
