I stayed at Hotel Burnham on business. Everyone was so friendly and consistently asked me if I needed anything, was I finding everything ok, how could they help, etc. Love that type of service. Being a historical hotel, hallways are narrow and the room I stayed in was small. If you are not planning on being in your room very... More

Housed in the 15 story Reliance Building, completed in 1895, the Hotel Burnham is a treasure. You will marvel at the wonderful detail of the lobby, elevators and room furnishings. A friendly staff and a wonderful restaurant on the premises will add to the joy of your stay.

This hotel is ideally located if you want to see/do al the touristy things in Chicago. Its one block from the Blue line CTA train stop for easy and cheap access to the airport. Several CTA buses from other nearby stops take you to most tourist attractions. Tons of nice places to eat within a 10 minute walking distance- Giordano's,... More

Excellent location! Loved our room and the atmosphere in the hotel. We only stayed one night, but would definitely stay here again. Looked like they had bikes in the lobby that guests could borrow as well as a reception. We didn't take advantage of either, but will next time!

I really like the Kimpton brand, their combination of luxury and whimsy appeal to me. This particular hotel in a very historic building, the Reliance Building. Check-in a breeze even though we were over an hour early and booked through Hotwire. Very very comfortable bed with great pillows under a high ceiling. Spacious bathroom with terrific amenities. A luxurious stay... More

This is a lovely hotel in a very well restored old building. Beautiful rooms, very attentive staff. Good wifi. The great thing is the location. Central to everything in downtown Chicago. The bad thing is the location. Construction crews have been jack hammering at the intersection of State and Washington where the Burnham is located almost continuously for the last... More

I was in Chicago visiting some relatives who came up from the D.C. area. This hotel is in a fantastic location, close to a lot of attractions. It was also necessary to find a hotel that allowed dogs and this one did. The rooms were clean, charming and well appointed. The staff were extremely friendly as well. It's a no... More
