My first visit to Chicago was made even better by staying in the Hotel Burnham. It's easy to get to from the airport on public transport and could not be better located for all the things you will want to see during your stay. The lovely Hotel Reception staff could not have been more helpful getting us restaurant reservations. The... More

We stayed at the Burnham this past weekend. A beautiful hotel that goes the extra mile in making a persons stay both relaxing and comforting. The staff was exceptional and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed or might need. Most courteous and speedy check in, and out, I have ever experienced. The history... More

Me, my wife, and two other couples stayed at the Burnham for the Columbus Day weekend. Everything about it was excellent! The rooms were spacious and comfortable, and the location was central to everything. The hotel bar was a great place for an end of day cocktail. There is even a 5:00PM free wine hour. Staff couldn't have been more... More

I had a wonderful stay for a long weekend in August. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more accomodating. Lots of nice little touches like bathrobs, Aveda bath products, wine in the evenings, etc. I really felt pampered and well taken care of. The location couldn't be beat! Just blocks from the Art Institute, Millenium and Grant parks, and... More

This boutique hotel is a real gem. Excellent location (corner of State and Washington). Comfortable, well appointed room. Staff was excellent (hand written welcome note and gift left in my room). Wi-Fi works well and is FREE (requires membership in the Kimpton Hotels rewards club, which is also free). Even though my room was by the elevator it was still... More

This hotel exceeds expectations in a variety of categories. The staff is excellent, the room is the perfect size, and the food is very good. The location is quite convenient. My only gripe and its a small one.....NO late checkout. Enjoy your stay.
