    Magnificent Mile
    Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
    Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
    Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
    River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
    neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
    place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
    shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
    dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.

    Yes it is, the Restaurant is small but convenient, and location for family attractions is very good: Michigan AV, Aquarium, AIC. No swimming pool if planning for summer.

    Like the others in the thread, our room did not have a terrace. There was an open air enclosed terrace just off the check-in and bar area, but closed during winter.
