    Magnificent Mile
    Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
    Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
    Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
    River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
    neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
    place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
    shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
    dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.

    You can request a fridge in the rooms when you check in however they don't just have them in the room automatically. Same for microwaves.

    I have also seen this in Europe. It is a twin bed. Usually the two twins are pushed together and have a king sheet over it and a king comforter over that. The two twins usually share a king size head board.
