Great location - just a few minute walk to millennium park and multiple CTA lines. Less than 10 minutes to the river and the boat tours. Clean, comfortable rooms and beds. Very friendly and totally unpretentious service. They will help you any way they can and they do it quickly - whether you forgot something or need a ticket and... More

Just returned home from three great nights at the Burnham. Concierge Jean Luc had helped us before an ensured a memorable experience this time as well. Gretchen at the desk was also quite helpful with advice and assistance, and Ray is the greatest bartender ever, sharing his vast knowledge of spirits and his skills at mixing them properly. Each and... More

Spent one night here in August for work and was very happy with my choice. The hotel is in a neat historic building, and the historic details are evident throughout. Check-in was easy and was upgraded to a suite. The suite had a nice sitting area, and then a room with a comfortable king bed. The bathroom was a bit... More

We have stayed at many Kimptons and have debated which one is our favorite. The Burnham has to rank among the top. From check-in throughout the stay, staff was extremely attentive, room was lovely and we appreciate the attention to the historical detail and preservation of the building's history. We look forward to returning on our next visit to Chicago.

I booked a room for 3 adults with 2 double beds through Expedia. We checked in and took all our luggage to the room, which had only 1 bed. So we took all our luggage back down and told Gretchen at the front desk we didn't have the correct room since we had booked a room with 2 beds. She... More

The staff are always lovely, friendly and cannot do enough for you. On this occasion booked at the last minute, yet Tonya was able to accommodate us without any question. Rooms are spacious, and the view is amazing. Always very clean throughout, and room cleaned to a high standard. It was lovely returning to the hotel to complementary ice tea... More

The Burnham was extremely clean, comfortable, and well located. The restaurant downstairs was a great place for a solo business traveler to enjoy a good meal. The bed was very comfortable, and I slept great. Will definitely stay there again next time I'm in Chicago.

Fantastic hotel, excellent location, lots of shops and restaurants close, 5 minutes away from the Millennium Park and Michigan Ave. , subway just around the corner, lots of public transportation, etc. The rooms were very clean and quiet, the building it self was renewed but kept it's old style. Overall a fantastic hotel for the price/location/quality, i'll definitely comeback again.

Everything about our stay was great! They welcomed our cat and dog with open arms! Giving them treats upon arrival and writing their names on the little chalk board in the lobby. And, for those not traveling with a pet...you'd never know they allow pets...the place was spotless! The staff was so helpful...they made us reservations for the architectural tour... More

My husband and I stayed here for four nights in August 2014. It was our first time to Chicago, and we took the train from Michigan City (after driving from Canada). We had no problem finding the hotel from Millenium Station, and our check-in was quick and easy. Our room was on the 3rd floor, right next to the fitness... More
