          • Family with children

            The hotel is an older building with interesting architectural details that has been renovated very tastefully with a rather Art Deco modern feel. The service and food were excellent, the room comfortable and sufficiently roomy. The lobby and main restaurant are scaled down in contrast with other hotels with more spacious lobbies but quite comfortable and chic. The location is ideal for downtown visits, two blocks from Water Tower Place and right on the Magnificent Mile.

            Contemporary decor in rooms; great location.

            1) Although I specifically said I might not stay the entire amount of nights booked, my debit card was charged for the full amount of entire period upon arrival without the clerk telling me he was taking the money off the card. I found out such an amount was taken out of my debit card when I checked my bank account via online banking. As of today I have not yet received the money back they allegedly took out "temporarily". 2) We had booked a double double room as we had two children (age 1 and 3) yet we could barely get the pram into the room. 3) There is hardly any space to sit at the entrance of the hotel. To get any seating one needs to go to the second floor which with such busy elevators and a pram with 2 children was quite a chore.

            Luxury hotel, well positionned to walk arround the downtown, specially for shopping or turism

            No special prices for guest car parking. Fast and numerous elevators, but a lot of people using them.

            The location is great ! Near everything in Chicago.

            Breakfast is poor but expensive for which it is (u$18.00). There are no public place to parking arround. The hotel parking is expensive (u$ 48.00). As an option to try a cheap park, I put my car at Row Interpark 50 East Ohaio St (Near Marriot Hotel). The employers hoodwink me with more u$ 33.00. I tried to call theier costumer number and no one answer. Thus, I advise everybody for do not bring the car to this Chicago zone, or if you think it is really necessary park the car in The Allerton Hotel parking, because others may cheat you as Row Interpark did with me.

            The location is in the center of town. Accessible to everything.

            The rooms are very small and the wait time for an elevator can be annoying.

            Staff was helpful and friendly. Decent hotel for the money.

            I was only there one night for business but the room could have been cleaned better especially the bathroom. The heat did not work right so the room was cold and the fan in the bathroom was very loud as well as a loud fan noise in the room itself I am guessing it was the cold air blowing that was supposed to be heat. If I was there longer I definately would have complained and had my room changed. The room looked nothing like the add when booking and rooms need updating. The bathroom was not only not that clean but the shower door handles were falling off the shower doors. Would not stay there again.

            The room was perfect for me as a solo traveler. I arrived early and the bellman stored my suitcase until I returned later that night. The room exceeded my expectations! It was called their "petite classic" and was much nicer than the photograph online. The location was great...and easy to come back to after walking all day!

            The Allerton is a gorgeous Italian Renaissance hotel in design and exewcution. Amazing staff, wonderful venues, beautifully appointed, oh so soft linens and friendly, intelligent, humourous staff, gently but elegantly efficent. Loved every moment. My conference was actually at a hotel abut 15 blocks away... I like to get out and walk when I am at a conference ... And the walking tours nearby were excellent.

            My stay wasn't long enough - I would have liked to have been surrounded by this lovely hotel for longer! - Lise Allin, President of Lise Allin Insurance and Estate Planning, Belleville, Canada

            It was very convenient, the hotel is located in the middle of restaurants and shopping centers.

            The look alike public bathrooms, it was really small it was 4 of us in 2sets of beds.. I asked 4 a view in the room, that didn't happen the room was not clean when we checked in there was crumbs of chips in the carpet. Not what I expected...

            when we came, it happened that our booked room was floated by rain, the hotel has reserved a room for us in another hotel, organized logistic, and did not charged anything for that night. When we came back next morning, they apologized again and gave us large nice 2-rooms suit instead of standard room.

            was noisy from outside, though like in almost hotels in US

            Location, location, location. Right in the middle of everything. Also after reading other reviews i was a little hesitant about this hotel. However this hotel far exceeded our expectations. The room was huge, bed was comfortable, bathroom was a nice size and elevators were not a problem. Also the staff was super friendly. Great 1st trip to Chicago.
