Hilton Garden Inn Magnificent Mile Ambiance
A tan-concrete, rectangular building taking up a good portion of an entire block of East Grand Avenue between North Wabash Avenue and Chicago’s iconic State Street, the Hilton Garden Inn Chicago Downtown/Magnificent Mile is not the most exciting structure to look at—it looks a lot like a hotel. However, once you step into the lobby, you enter a very welcoming space, one that has been renovated in just the past 5 years. The floors here consist of off-white tiles flecked with diamond patterns, and there’s a lot of dark wood. Contemporary seating is arranged throughout the lobby, making it a comfortable place to meet up with the rest of your traveling group, or just sit and catch your breath while enjoying a coffee. The in-house convenience store and on-site restaurant are also both accessible directly from the lobby.
