Red Roof Inn Chicago Downtown Magnificent Mile: Pet-Friendly Motel, Prime Location

What Do the Rooms Include?

The Red Roof Inn is a pet-friendly hotel with extra amenities. Both your pet and kids younger than 17 stay free, while all rooms are 100 percent smoke-free. A microwave, mini fridge, video games, and flat-screen TV with extended cable channels also make this budget hotel perfect for families. All rooms have free wireless Internet, safes, and free toiletries as well.

What Amenities Are Available?

Guests can dine at Coco Pazzo, the hotel's on-site restaurant, or pick up a little something in the snack center. Business travelers can take advantage of the on-site business center kiosk, as well as valet parking with in-and-out privileges for a fee.

What's There to Do Nearby?

Just a three-minute walk from Michigan Avenue’s Magnificent Mile, guests are right in the middle of Chicago’s top shopping, dining, and entertainment district. With over 200 restaurants and about 420 upscale shops, it is a foodie and shopper haven. Additionally, the McCormick Convention Center, United Center, and Northwestern University’s Schools of Law and Medicine are all within a short walk or drive away.

Moreover, the location of this affordable Chicago motel is excellent for visits to Navy Pier, Gateway Park, Willis Tower, Soldier Field, and other downtown Chicago attractions.

What Will a Room at the Red Roof Inn Chicago Downtown Magnificent Mile Cost Me?

The Red Roof Inn offers pleasing amenities at reasonable prices. On average, you can expect to pay $134 a night for a standard room or $160 for a two-room king suite, which includes two bathrooms and a sitting area with convertible sofa bed. Better yet? Rates for this property are typically lower than comparable two-star hotels in Chicago in the Gold Coast area. In fact, you are unlikely to find a suite at that price point in the area.

What’s the Bottom Line?

The Red Roof Inn Chicago Downtown Magnificent Mile is a great value for families touring Northwestern University grad schools, business travelers attending a conference in downtown, and those planning to visit Chicago attractions around the Magnificent Mile and Loop Community areas. A note to families: make sure you book one of the suites, as standard rooms are on the small side for groups of three or more.

Expert Reviews
If price is your top concern, this is where you'll find the lowest rates in downtown Chicago.
Ask for a room facing Ontario Street, where at least you'll get western exposure and some natural light (rooms in other parts of the hotel look right into neighboring office buildings).
Time Out
You’ll usually find this economy lodging chain along the nation’s highways or in the far-flung suburbs.
Lonely Planet
If you snag one of the lower rates, it might be worth your while to stay here, steps from the Michigan Ave shopping bonanza.
