On a recent trip to Chicago we stayed at Hotel Burnham. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Darnell at the front desk made our visit very special by giving us a room with an amazing view. The location is perfect for shopping and dining. Excellent location, beautiful, historic hotel. I highly recommend to anyone visiting Chicago. We will be... More

A very nice boutique hotel in the loop near the lake. It has 15 stories at about 10 rooms per floor, so if there are 300 people there, it will be crowded. At this time, they are renovating the lobby, bar and cafe, so I can't comment of the food, but they offer a 20% discount until March. Valet parking... More

Surprised the wife with a trip to Chi-Town for her birthday. This hotel was very affordable and situated very close to things. It was never a problem catching the L or taking taxis to where we needed to go either. They have a great bar downstairs (though we didn't dine there). As with all Kimpton properties, the service was top... More

The captivating views from my 11th floor corner room alone was well worth the $120/night rate. Walking through the lobby and hallway to my room was like a step back in time. The hotel located in the Reliance building which is one of "Chicago's most significant architectural landmarks," according to the hotels website. It is a beautiful hotel and one... More

My husband and I stayed at the Burnham on a "staycation" from the northern suburbs. The hotel is ideally located for a visit to downtown Chicago--it's walking distance to Orchestra Hall and the Art Institute. It's across the street from Macy's and steps to all the Loop shopping including Jewelers' Row. Best of all, it's charming. We stayed on the... More

I stayed in the Hotel Burnham for one night in December 2014 on an overnight visit to Chicago. I hadn't stayed in this hotel before, but I have stayed in Kimpton properties and I like their style and corporate philosophy. The Burnham was one of the best Kimptons I've visited. The location is superb - right smack in the northern... More

The last two times we passed through Chicago (we like to go cross country by train), we stayed at the magnificent Kimpton sister property, the Hotel Monaco. This time, I decided to try the Burnham because it looked so beautiful and the location is just a couple of blocks closer to the sites we like to visit. While the staff... More

I always stay at the Burnham when I am in Chicago for Business. It is conveniently located within "the loop" in the business district. So when you are traveling for business, the location is great. When you are on holidays the location might not be perfect as after 8pm there is not much to do in that area anymore. The... More

This was a wonderful place to stay for the Christkindlmarket that is just a block away. Room was nice and clean and the staff very friendly.The bathrooms were very small but nice. The shower sure could use the curved shower rods that most hotels now have. We would stay here again.

This Kimpton property, right in The Loop at Washington & State streets, never ceases to impress, from its glorious period architecture and fantastic beds, to The Atwood restaurant's insanely cool art-deco room and sumptuous spreads. There are plenty of Kimpton hotels to choose from for the theatre/opera/foodie fan in Chicago, I love the Burnham and always appreciate the staff calling... More
