Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile

Chicago, USA

Virgin rating

The hotel

Thanks to a combination of French chic and a convenient location, the Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile is an extremely stylish venue from where to experience the very best of Chicago. Guest rooms offer a complete range of contemporary amenities and designer comforts with some delicious downtown surroundings helping you get into the swing of things straight from touchdown. As Navy Pier, Bloomingdales and the MCA are just a few steps from your front door it won't take too long to get amongst the action, with Lake Michigan's shoreline always providing the perfect setting on a warm day in the Windy City. After a good day spent sightseeing or browsing the boutiques, CDA is definitely the best destination to revive your senses with Le Bar offering an uber cool alternative to get you in the mood as you plan the night ahead. A 24-hour fitness room and free WiFi offer just a couple more reasons to stay at the Sofitel and if you're looking for any more, then just gaze upwards at the architectural designs of Jean-Paul Viguier, and you certainly won't be disappointed.

My husband and I recently returned from a 5 night stay at the Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile hotel. The property is upscale but not at all pretentious with friendly and helpful staff. The hotel location is in a less touristy neighbourhood which is well served with restaurants and shops yet is close to major Chicago attractions. Our room (2 Double Beds Superior) was quiet with ultra comfortable beds and equipped with amenities such as a Nespresso coffee machine, in-room safe and mini fridge. The hotel seems to be geared to couples and business travellers. Very pleased with our hotel choice. Read less

Everyone we encountered was professional, kind and well skilled that their jobs. I am especially grateful to Carrie in reservations. She took time to help me design the best accommodations and expressed genuine interest in the reason for my stay. It is positive interactions such as this that will cause me to return.

I really like the location of the Sofitel; close to North Michigan Avenue but far enough to avoid the crowds, two blocks from the subway and a pleasant walk to Millennium Park and the area nearby.

I really like the location of the Sofitel; close to North Michigan Avenue but far enough to avoid the crowds, two blocks from the subway and a pleasant walk to Millennium Park and the area nearby. We had an issue with the hot water but that was fixed immediately. When I experienced the same issue in other hotels in the U.S. and London the response was always: 'Sorry, it's an old system.' I guess the building is about 20 years old but very well maintained and doesn't feel it's age. Staff were also friendly and helpful. I look forward to my next stay. Read less

Restaurant is really good, avoid breakfast as the service is awful. My biggest hate from this experience is during checkin I was 'upgraded' due to being a Dimond Accor member and I… Read more
Stayed there last night, have been there several times, previous times weren't great experiences but I collect the Accor points. Rooms are OK if not a little dated. Restaurant is really good, avoid breakfast as the service is awful. My biggest hate from this experience is during checkin I was 'upgraded' due to being a Dimond Accor member and I am 'so special', and when I got to the room it was exactly the same room that I booked.....what a joke! ;-) Will try elsewhere next time...
