We stopped by for cocktails and snacks and once off the elevator didn't think we were in the right place. The Ritz totally remodeled the entire grand entrance lobby, restaurant and check in areas including what was once a palm and plant filled sunroom/lounge. The...More

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.
