We chose this place for a mini vacation in because it was in the heart of the city but still seemed to be quiet inside. It isn't the cheapest option, but it is close to all the action and I don't believe anyone should be shopping on budget alone when looking for lodging in the heart of any major metropolitan.... More

When we lived in Chicago, my husband and I used to go to the Burnham every year for our anniversary and request a corner room with a view of the Chicago Theater. It's a wonderful hotel with beautiful architecture and luxurious rooms. The Atwood Cafe on the ground floor is a favorite spot to eat. That said, the Burnham is... More

Enjoyed it a lot. Nice restaurant in the hotel, with very good espresso. Very nice building, and a helpful staff. Bed was very comfortable. Can't ask for anything more. Just out of the hotel are many restaurants and shopping opportunities.

Had a meeting in Chicago November 2014 and stayed at the Hotel Burnham again. Sasha, front desk staff, was terrific...personable, professional, helpful and efficient in getting me checked in. The hotel location is great with CTA access to the blue and red lines. Lots of shopping and restaurant options nearby, not to mention the Atwood Café at the hotel. But... More

My husband and I traveled here for business and stayed a couple of extra days for fun. The hotel was fantastic. The room is small, but no smaller than comparable hotels in the area. We loved the decor; historical with a modern funky flare. Millennium Park is only 2 minutes away and we found this to be a great location... More

Read several reviews before booking and took into consideration good, bad and other. Over all, great service, food and 6 pm wine in lobby is very nice compliment to a stay.Easy access to train and walkable destinations.

Stayed for 3 nights in Nov 2014. Location was very convenient. Right next to Macy's, Walgreens and Nordstrom rack and 5-10 minutes walk to Art Institute of Chicago and Millennium Park. The building's old and historic but very well maintained. Room was clean, amenities simple but they offer more when you ask, such as coffee maker, shaving cream, etc. We... More

Charming hotel located in the historic Reliance Building in downtown Chicago. True boutique feel with distinctive decor and great service. Shopping (Macy's on State St.), theaters, restaurants and attractions (Chicago Cultural Center, Millennium Park) all within easy walking distance. Perfect for business or leisure!

I stayed at this hotel for a long business trip and was in residence for a week. I enjoyed the downstairs restaurant on several nights. Room and bed were very comfortable. The property is just a short walk from a lot of great restaurants and nightlife spots. Really close to the park as well.

I have stayed at Kimpton in Boston and San Diego. I am becoming a big fan of this chain. The service has been excellent and the size is right. There were no lines at check in or the restaurant. It is quiet and charming. Great location in the center of downtown.
