The James Chicago

The James Chicago Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The James is one of Chicago's top luxury hotels, and is located in River North, a block from the Magnificent Mile. The public spaces are modern and sometimes quirky, while the 297 rooms are crisp and clean. They're minimally decorated without being stark, and some have clever design to maximize space, as well as big flat-screen TVs, impressively stocked minibars, and comfortable beds. Bathrooms are modern and minimalist too, but not all have tubs and some are on the small side. In addition to a well-equipped fitness room, the James also has two art galleries along with art and sculpture present throughout the lobby. The hotel is also home to the excellent restaurant, David Burke's Primehouse, and the Primehouse Bar. Appealing hotel extras include a free car service, which can come in handy as parking is quite pricey.

Four Seasons Hotel Chicago

Four Seasons Hotel Chicago Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The 346-room Four Seasons Chicago is located on floors 32 to 46 of a limestone-and-glass skyscraper along the Magnificent Mile, atop an upscale shopping center. The hotel boasts a gorgeous indoor pool with a skylight and great views, an expansive spa and fitness center with modern machines, and a restaurant helmed by Michelin-star Executive Chef Kevin Hickey. Guest rooms boast phenomenal views, and were updated in 2012 with modern decor and art fixtures. It's one of the city's nicest hotels, and the location near the historic Water Tower and the Hancock Observatory can't be beat. But bathrooms -- most with shower/tub combos rather than separate walk-in showers and soaking tubs --are a tad less luxurious than you'd expect in this price range (though still lovely).

River Hotel

River Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The midrange, 243-room River Hotel shares a building (and small, stately lobby) with the members-only Club Quarters hotel. Rooms are on the small side, but they're clean and modern, and some come with kitchenettes. The hotel is, as you might have guessed, right on the Chicago River on the northern edge of the Loop; rates are among the most affordable you'll find in this tourist-centric location.

Central Loop Hotel

Central Loop Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This midrange hotel, which shares a building with the members-only Club Quarters Central Loop Hotel, is a solid value in the center of The Loop, within walking distance of many tourist attractions. Rooms are small and a little generic, but modern, with flat-screen TVs and comfy beds (some come with kitchenettes). Nice freebies (coffee, newspapers, Wi-Fi) and the lively on-site gastropub are highlights, but don't expect too much in the way of service; with an electronic check-in and concierge services shared by both hotels, the hotel can give off a "do-it-yourself" attitude.

Hilton Garden Inn Chicago Downtown/Magnificent Mile

Hilton Garden Inn Chicago Downtown/Magnificent Mile Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This 357-room hotel two blocks from the Magnificent Mile has big (if generic) rooms for the price, plus an attractive (albeit small) indoor pool area and a bright, well-equipped fitness center. Mini-fridges and microwaves make it easy to save money on food, and the hotel offers solid freebies — free Wi-Fi and free afternoon cookies. But parking fees are steep, and room service is only available for dinner.
