Picture-perfect location near Michigan Avenue shopping and restaurants

A visit to Chicago wouldn't be complete without a stroll along the Magnificent Mile, so the properties closest to the grand boulevard earn instant bonus points. For travelers looking to be within steps of Michigan Avenue restaurants, landmarks and shops, it doesn't get more convenient than this classy Chicago hotel. Catering to business travelers and tourists, the property goes beyond the norm to offer special rooms like kids rooms, tech rooms and suites. Big windows capture the impressive skyline, with some framing views of Lake Michigan.

Highlights
  • Steps from the Magnificent Mile, Water Tower Place, American Girl and John Hancock Observatory
  • Close to Navy Pier
  • Family-themed rooms and tech rooms complete with an iMac
  • Outdoor rooftop pool open seasonally
Rooms
Guests have a choice of layouts, from standard rooms to suites with lovely views of the cityscape. The hotel goes a step further, though, for families and Mac lovers. Kid-friendly rooms throw a bit of color into the neutral palette, boasting beds covered with rainbow linens, Little Einsteins pillows, giraffe play tubes, beanbag chairs and mini chalkboards. In the Tech Rooms, expect an iMac, color printer and high-speed and Wi-Fi access.
In all rooms, look for the Zebra print upholstered armchair, a signature of the hotel, plus iHome docking stations and high-definition LCD TVs.
Features
Chicago is known for its place in defining American architecture, so it's only natural to expect remarkable design from impressive city hotels like the Avenue Hotel.
Downstairs, visitors mingle with downtown professionals at the Elephant & Castle, a pub dishing up British favorites like bangers and mash, stuffed Yorkshire pudding and beans and mash. Dim lighting and a wood-heavy interior make it the place to linger and sample a global selection of brews.

Great hotel, great location

We arrived later than we expected, but the staff was efficient, polite and helpful. Our room was spacious, and the location, close to Northwestern Hospital, was perfect. And, the check-out was quick. We enjoyed our stay and plan to enjoy the hotel again.

Enjoy breakfast on top of the hotel, then lunch and/or dinner downstairs. Overall, the food is very good! Best shopping in the world is half a block away!

Quick weekend getaway

My boyfriend and I wanted a place near the shops and pizza for one night in the city. The Crowne Plaza was in the perfect location and the bed we slept on was incredibly comfortable. We will be back to stay here again soon!

Eat at Lou Malnatis and order your pizza from the hostess while you wait for your table. It'll be ready in much better time after you are seated! http://www.loumalnatis.com/

Great stay just off the Magnificent Mile

Very central location - we found this hotel to be perfect for our two night stay in Chicago. Sights and shopping in walking distance or short cab rides. Clean and comfortable,great value for money

Could use special some attention

Check-in was prompt and good. But facilities lack 4 star rating. Elevators need some painting and cleaning throughout the day. Rooms need some obvious maintenance such as bathroom mirror coming off wall which has to be seen by cleaning staff. Shower head coming out of wall. Bathroom counters in need of caulking. Carpeting ripped in several areas and needs replacing. No bellman on duty, per operator, to help with luggage at checkout at noon on a Thursday. Not a 4 star hotel.
