You really can't beat the location of the hotel, it's half a block away from Michigan Av and the John Hancock observatory, so you're within a few steps of the heart of the city. There's a bus stop in the corner and even a Trolley & Double Decker stop right across the street. The hotel itself is very nice, it... More

Stayed 2 nites in Jr. Suite-1701 this past weekend. Location and service top notch,the room well appointed. Mold around tub disturbing and carpet in need of cleaning. This is an elegant older hotel in need of some TLC.

Just visited this great property for two, one-night stays on the way to Michigan. Booked through Hotwire and was delighted to discover I was staying here. Used to stay here on business trips when I lived in Hawaii. Great location, warm and friendly staff and beautifully updated rooms. As a former hotelier, I understand how room assignments are made, and... More

I have stayed at the Whitehall hotel many times and had great experience.I love the location, the smaller size and bedding. However, I just returned from four nights in room 1308 and my back is still sore! I didn't sleep at all and should've have requested a new room after the first night!Please don't cover up old mattresses with a... More

This hotel was average at best. Don't be fooled by the four star rating if you are booking on hotwire or hotels.com. First, the lobby is very nice, but the room was not great. It was small and felt dirty. Nasty carpet, toilet had hair on it, and there were wires hanging from the ceiling. I did not fell comfortable... More

The hotel feels like a shoebox, you request a king bed and they give you a queen. You request nit close to elevator and they place you right next to, and then they tell you that they can not move you. The valet parking, 57 dollars per day, is a robbery. No breakfast, and rooms old and very small, is... More

The hotel is 1st a great location. The staff was helpful and courteous. The parking whether valet or being dropped off was nice because of an area to pull in. The beds were very comfortable, and the rooms were quiet. It is on a street of quiet, but close to Michigan Avenue and Rush St. If you are looking for... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. Great check in, nice room with a better than expected bed-linens-pillow experience. Close to everything. Best location, but hey I used to live here...

We stayed at the Whitehall for two nights while visiting Chicago. After reading the rave reviews, we were dissatisfied with our overall experience. While the two women at the front desk were very welcoming and professional, much less can be said about the valet service; the gentlemen were dressed unprofessional (swimming in their "uniforms"), and were at times unapproachable. After... More

Dear PBeta J, Thank you for your review and I apologize that we dropped the ball during your stay. I will speak to the valet staff in about being more accommodating with guests. You should not have had to wait more than 20 minutes to receive your car and they should certainly be approachable and accomodating with all of our... More
