The Burnham is a nice boutique hotel that is in a great location. The rooms were nicely furnished and the public areas are very cool. The only drawback is the size of the rooms. I stayed in a queen room and there were times when it was tight for two people to get around. Tip - You can always tell... More

Tripasdvisor ratings can be hit & miss... this one was a definite hit. A fine boutique hotel, my room (on the 15th floor) was small, but beautifully decorated. Front desk person greeted me with a glass of wine (and offered me to take it to my room to drink after my work-out). Dinner at the hotel restaurant was excellent, and... More

It will always favour a good review, when you arrive and get a room upgrade, which we were fortunate enough to receive. We were given a corner suite on the ninth floor, with fantastic views down State and Washington. The room was spacious, confortable and clean. The hotel is smaller than others we have previously stayed in whilst visiting Chicago,... More

Checked in and was offered hot chocolate. It was cold! Dated decor. Dirty rugs. Grout in bathroom black in some areas. Toilet under rim black. Receptionist gave a poor recommendation for a Thai dinner. Guided us to a restaurant in a shopping mall! Printer not working. Very disappointed with hotel overall. Location was great for a concert at the Chicago... More

It's location in the Loop is perfect.; we were able to go anywhere on foot or via the el. The building has a "new" retro look, so much so, you'd expect to see a 1940's era private eye wearing a fedora and trench coat getting off the elevator. All of the staff, as with many of the Chicagoans we ran... More

We stayed only one night. A Saturday night which is always busy in downtown Chicago. My husband, 8 year old and myself had a great experience. Everyone at the front desk was so nice and helpful. We even ran into the housekeeping staff and they always were polite and friendly. The room had a fantastic view and was very clean.... More

Beautiful interior and very friendly staff. The rooms are smallish but cosy with good temperature control. Location is perfect inside the loop just one block from the Wabash. Michigan Avenue is just three or four blocks away.

We had our annual night before Thanksgiving stay at the Hotel Burnham and it did not disappoint us! From check in to check out, we were made to feel at home. The bellman brought up our luggage and I love that he took the time to hang up our coats and put our bags on the luggage racks. The little... More

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....
