Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile in Brief


Designed by French architect Jean-Paul Viguier, Sofitel Chicago is a showpiece skyscraper in the Gold Coast. Its eye-catching prism design sparkles on all 32 floors containing 415 rooms, including 33 luxurious suites, as well as a grand ballroom, award-winning restaurant and sultry cocktail lounge.


Where to Stay


Sofitel is a luxury French import, so expect to see European influences everywhere.
From artwork by local and international artists to a cosmopolitan vibe making guests feel as though they’ve been transported into the chicest part of Paris, the atmosphere is very fashionable.


There’s a French focus, of course, at Café des Architectes, the hotel’s vibrant restaurant where the color red dominates the room. The rich palate perfectly complements the bold cuisine, which uses seasonal ingredients that are local whenever possible. Some items to always expect on the menu include house-made charcuterie and cheeses, a juicy Iowa-raised ribeye and Amish roast chicken. A seven-course degustation menu is available and comes highly recommended with wine pairings.


A trip to the dazzling Le Bar–which just happens to be one of our favorite French-focused bars in Chicago–should always be on the agenda. An exotic playlist serves as background music as guests nosh on chef-driven small plates paired with French-accented cocktails and other beverages. Each month the bar features food, drink and culture from a different region in France, from Bordeaux to Saint Tropez.


Amenities: Highlights of Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile include great views of John Hancock Building, complimentary hot breakfast (with special package), free Internet and a quick walk to the beach. Dogs are allowed.
