  • Very large rooms great views and liked the design. Beautiful restoration of historic building and we appreciated the lemon water available in the lobby. Friendly and helpful staff, nothing's perfect, particularly the bed was very comfortable and quiet. The atwood cafe food was delicious and weekday menu was more reasonable.

  • Top floors have great views and millennium Park is just a short walk away. Very good Chicago Loop hotel, comfortable the interior finishes are perfectly sophisticated and in the shopping district many natives use and close to the Magnificent Mile. The staff is efficient, helpful and friendly, the bar and dining room is beautiful, the food at the restaurant is fantastic.

    First the location could not be better for seeing the city.

  • Great location for shopping macy's, the bus stop is across the street and the L is just a block away, theater district and cross the river to the Magnificent Mile.

  • The location was wonderful, my night at the Hotel Burnham was delightful and the building itself had such a historic feeling as well. The staff were very friendly, the room was beautiful and the restaurant was very good. Wine each afternoon made a great end of the day.

    Old fashioned service and the windows are not very new and the L is just one block away.

  • Great staff and location, just to the Hancock Tower we took a taxi. Hotel was very comfortable and the building was designed by the noted Chicago architect. The woman concierge was very helpful in suggesting nearby restaurants for us and the service was excellent.

    Millenium park a few blocks away not to be missed and no reading bed light on either side of the bed.
