We visited Chicago the last weekend in October. Yes, Halloween weekend. Not that that affected our review at all. The hotel is right in the heart of Chicago. Perfect location. It's on the corner of State Street and Washington. A couple blocks one way is Millennium Park. A couple blocks the other way is the Chicago River. A short walk... More

Hotel Burnham brings life to a historic building. Room was unique and kept clean. Common areas were very inviting. Food in downstairs restaurant (Atwood Cafe) was excellent, but it was closed on New Year's Day and so we had to find another place to eat. Other than that, hotel stay was excellent and location was super convenient for seeing all... More

Just got back from a long weekend staying at the Hotel Burnham. I was a particpant in the Chicago Marathon. Got a great rate on this hotel on Priceline (due to the weekend I did book about 8 months in advance). The staff was wonderful to my family and myself the entire weekend including providing my son with some free... More

On our first trip to Chicago my wife and I took Amtrak from Portland, Or. That was an adventure in its self. I did a lot of research on line about where to stay and decided on the Burnham because of various recommendations NOT from previous travelers but from other sources. My wife has MS and cannot walk long distances... More

The hotel is located centrally and it was easy to get to my client. The staff was generally knowledgeable about the area and gave good restaurant recommendations.

We checked in early with little expectations but were greated with huge smiles and accommodated immeditaley. The staff at the door and the desk could not have been nicer. The room although small was perfect and given it is an historic building -understood. Loved the Atwood cafe - wish more hotels had cool places like this to eat- Will definatley... More

This hotel is a real discovery! We liked staying there so much that it may be the reason we go back to Chicago again. A man we met on the elevator agreed; he has been staying at the Hotel Burnham for the past 12 years! EVERY time he comes to Chicago. This hotel is beautiful and comfortable. Everything from the...

Kimpton offered me a great deal for being a Kimpton Intouch member, so I couldn't resist the offer of staying in the historic Burnham Reliance building in the El section of Chicago. The location is prime. Walking distance to the Art Institute, two blocks away from Millennium Park, one block away from the Cultural Center. And the shopping, watch out!... More

Hotel Burnham was much more than I expected. The hotel has wonderful character and a great staff. The room was very comfortable and richly decorated. The bed was to die for! Two plush robes are provided as well as very nice toiletries. I look forward to staying at Hotel Burnham again!

This month marked my 4th stay at Hotel Burnham which has given me ample opportunity to make a fair assessment. The unpretentious staff has been consistently courteous, eager to please, and seem to genuinely want guests to feel welcomed. The hotel is centrally located in The Loop with Millennium Park and the Art Institute a short walk away. The physicality... More
