My husband and I just returned from our little trip to Chicago and loved Hotel Burnham! The staff was friendly, the locaton was perfect (2 blocks from the park/bean and lots of restauratns,bars, and shopping near by), and the hotel itself was really cool. Very clean and well kept - I did notice some peeling wallpaper in the bathroom that... More

Experienced the opportunity to stay at the Burnham in Chicago this past week. Very nice experience. They took the time to make each guest feel like we were staying in our home. Evening wine is the perfect ending to a day at work. Clean rooms and comfortable beds.

This was my third Kimpton hotel that I decided to stay at in Chicago (stayed at Monaco and Allegro before and was not disappointed). I LOVED Hotel Burnham. First, the location is amazing. You are on the corner of Washington and State, so you are at the heart of an awesome shopping experience (I prefer State St. shopping over Michigan... More

From the minute we walked in, the staff was friendly, helpful and hospitable. We were there to celebrate our anniversary and they sent a bottle of wine up to our room. There was a free wine reception in the lobby on Friday night. The room was very nicely appointed, the beds were comfortable. (Did not like the pillows, but that... More

I've stayed at this hotel twice on my trips to Chicago and I can't rave enough about it. Both of my trips here have been on business, I really didn't have a choice with hotels as my company chose this hotel since it was close to our offices. But rest assured, they are always concerned about whether they should continue... More

We stayed six days, the architecture is gorgeous but suites are on the small side, tiny bathrooms ... not the luxury bath one would expect in an "executive" suite. Almost no extras included in the premium rates, there is a charge for every little thing, no spa, and the management is very rigid. It is only barely pet friendly in... More

After searching online for hotels in the Loop, I unexpectedly came across the Hotel Burnham. The location was right, and I was intrigued by the Burnham name after having read "The Devil in the White City" several years ago. Although we only stayed one night, we really enjoyed our time there. The staff was very nice, the decor was lovely,... More

My wife and I stayed here for an anniversary trip. I didn't know exactly what we'd get, but I'm glad we gave it a shot. Everything was good, but a few things deserve being highlighted: The staff. Everyone was very nice, very welcoming, and very helpful. The doorman always opened the door and welcomed us with a smile. The concierge,... More

Last time I was in Chicago I stayed at the Palmer House. Never again after my stay at the Burnham. The service was exceptional, the free coffee is actually good coffee, and even the housekeeper left me a handwritten note. I highly recommend.

Visited Chicago for one night last fall and had a lovely stay at Hotel Burnham. We had a one-bedroom suite that was very nicely appointed. The beautiful old architecture has been well maintained, most notably the marble stairways and ornate wrought-iron railings and balisters. The staff was friendly and helpful. Location was in walking distance to many of the sites... More
