Although located in downtown Chicago, Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile brings the best features of France to the US. Its unique French aesthetic is tastefully merged with a contemporary architectural design, leaving no passerby indifferent to its splendid construction.

With so many places to explore at your fingertips, you don’t have to worry about finding things to fill your itinerary with.
Apart from artsy destinations, there are numerous shopping sights to explore on Michigan Avenue, from Louis Vuitton to Nordstrom. The Chicago French Market is a short walk away from Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile, just like some popular restaurants such as Bistronomic and Margeaux Brasserie.
Style and Character
Towering over North Michigan Avenue, this eye-catching skyscraper is built by French architect Jean-Paul Viguier, so you can expect to see refined French touches sprinkled in throughout the 32-floor building. The juxtaposition of traditional local culture and inventive French art de vivre makes for a truly special and memorable stay.
The common areas including the lobby and the restaurants are bright and open, inviting the natural light to emphasize the unique design. The hotel doesn’t have a strict color palette; deep reds and beige fitments decorate the lobby, while the suites have a black-and-white color scheme.
