Editorial review:

An elegant European style hotel Whitehal hearkening back to 1928 oozes with old fashioned grace from its amazing Downtown location, which is just far away from the hoi poloi to make it sufficiently quiet, but near enough for those Michigan Avenue shopping trips. The petite rooms feature restored mahogany antiques, baths with marble floors and granite countertops and high thread count Egyptian cotton bedding.

              I very much liked the location of the hotel. I found it to be a very charming hotel with great character. The room was very comfortable, furnishings were warm and tasteful. I had a king size bed with great bedding and quality pillows...it was easy to have a good night's sleep. Unlike other areas downtown, I found traffic noise from the street to be minimal. It was very hot in Chicago and I found the air conditioning in the room effective and quiet. The bar and restaurant in the hotel is very appealing, and they make an incredible thin crust pizza! In the immediate vicinity are numerous cafes and restaurants....the hotel really is in an excellent area. I arrived early at 10:30 a.m. and they were able to give me a room right away...bonus!

              Very minor...if one wants ice they have to call the front desk for it to be delivered or go down to the bar.

              The location was very good (half block from the Jhon Hancock Observatory) and neary in front of the Four Season Hotel. We could enjoy shopping and The atmosfere around the hotel was really good.Only

              We didn't like one thing. This is the first hotel we didn.t have the shompoo and body gel every day. And when we leave the tip, we had them, and sometimes we left the tip, and we didn't have. Once we din't have them for 2 days and we have to ask to the front desk. The room was clean but we had the problem mith amenities.

              Beds were very comfortable and the location unbeatable. Front clerks, both on arrival and checkout went out of their way to accommodate us. I wish I had taken note of their names since they deserve individual praise. We will recommend this hotel to others.

              No pen in our room and would have liked a live concierge.

              The Whitehall staff were outstanding and made our trip very memorable! We were there celebrating our daughters 19th and 21st birthdays, and the accomodations were perfect and we were treated very special--thank you to the Whitehall staff for your graciousness and kindness in making our stay a most enjoyable one!

              Charming, small hotel. Room was large, but no view where we were. Lobby crowded.

              The room was poorly lit. Only one lamp on one side of bed. Floor lamp was burned out and the socket in the wall was loose and potentially dangerous. There was no bar soap in the room when we checked in and it took a long time for Housekeeping to bring it.

              Location is great for downtown Chicago access. Staff was friendly and helpful.

              Hotel is badly in need of renovation. Only one elevator was working, lounge area was sweltering on a hot day. Room TV worked manually for sone channels. No movie access. Washing the windows, particularly on ground level would help building appearance greatly.
