Often a new city hotel has to settle for adapting an existing building, shoehorning modern interior design into a prewar skyscraper or hiding boutique flash behind an unassuming facade. Not so the Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile. Architect Jean-Paul Viguier was allowed to start from scratch, and the result is striking — a dramatic bright white wedge-shaped building that looks for all the world like a giant ice breaking ship cutting its way across Chicago.

The inverted wedge shape, while arresting enough from the outside, has a delightful effect on the interiors as well — guest rooms on the underside of the wedge protrude out over the sidewalk, allowing a unique view straight down onto the street.

Of course in some chain hotels one would prefer to look out the window, rather than catch a glimpse of the tired decor and flabby furniture. Here, again, this hotel is different; Sofitel is a chain, yes, but one with respect for design — guest rooms feature Barcelona chairs by Mies van der Rohe and the hotel lobby is stocked with a small library of books about Chicago architecture and design.

Let's not forget the creature comforts — though the Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile could certainly get by on good looks alone, it is a fully-functioning big-city luxury hotel, with high-speed internet, 24-hour room service, spacious bathrooms, and a convenient downtown location. Though the staff may speak with French accents, and the interiors are deeply European, there's little danger of forgetting where you are — those vast picture windows have commanding views of the city's unique architecture, if you can tear your eyes from the sidewalk below.

How to get there:
Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile is located a few blocks from the Chicago Ave. station on the red "L" line and approximately a 30 minute drive from Chicago O'Hare International Airport. Please contact customerservice@tablethotels.com to arrange airport transfers. This hotel is implementing enhanced safety and cleaning measures as required by the Tablet Recovery Pledge. Our Customer Service team is happy to provide full details of each step being taken.
