Shopping the Magnificent Mile

How lucky are we to be so close to all of the major shopping in
Chicago? Right around the corner is one of the most notable and well represented shipping areas in the country. Being on the north end of the Mile, we are fortunate to be surrounded with the likes of Chanel, Gucci and Louis Vuitton. Why not take advantage of one of our shopping packages to get your summer wardrobe. A wonderful stay in a beautiful hotel along with a $50 Amex gift card can jump start the warm weather season.

With three large shopping areas on Michigan Avenue, it is easy for men, women, and children to find something they may or may not need. Niketown, the Apple store, Garmin, the Crate and Barrel flag store, Tiffany’s, American Girl Doll Store are all within a few minute walk. There are several floors of shopping at The Shops at 900, Watertower Place and The Shops at Northbridge.

If you are more a boutique shopper, Lincoln Park, the Southport Corridor and Wicker Park are just a cab or train ride away to some unique areas of shopping. Andersonville has some very unique refurbished furniture stores as well as being part of the local Swedish community. Pilsen is an artist’s paradise and Randolph Street has a great weekend antique market.

Once you’ve settled into your room and unpacked, make sure to stop by the concierge desk for a shopping map and coupons to some of the local shopping.
