I am a person that loves the oldness, and grandness of Chicago. So If you enjoy that this is the place. Every year we stay at the Whitehall in December and walk the streets with the great windows for Christmas. I love the Hotel because of the quaint bar area, the rooms are so beautiful and the staff so elegant... More

What a great hotel!!! The room is big, with a desk and a chair, a little couch and two bedside tables, besides a cabinet under the TV. So there’s enough space for keeping your things. They also have a wardrobe and provides you a flat iron and a table, robes and an umbrella for using during the stay. The bathroom... More

I unfortunately got this hotel from a Hotwire deal for a 4 star hotel where you don't know the name of the hotel till you book. I've had good luck in the past from those deals but this time I was very disappointed. This is not a 4 star hotel! Even 3 stars is being generous. It's an old hotel... More

Excellent location. Nice and pleasant staff. Express check in and out. Efficient A/C. Comfortable bed. The hotel's interiors need attention. The corridors' walls and carpets need renovation. TV channels are all paid.

We stayed at the Whitehall for three nights and we were very happy with our stay. The location is perfect for shopping, eating out and the beach is only a 10 minutes walk away (be sure to check out the beach; it's beautiful!). The room was modern and the bed is very comfortable!

This hotel is perfect place. The staff was absolutely awesome and very helpful. \ We will stay here again. Hats off to Whitehall Hotel. If there is anything a little off the elevators are slow responding but this is an old hotel and it was only a problem during peak hours.

We stayed for 6 nights. The location was great. It is a block away from the Watertower Place shopping centre and it's an easy walk down to Michigan Avenue.

Stayed in Chicago over the Air & Water Show Weekend 2015. Such a great location only 1/2 block west of North Michigan Ave. I was worried it would be crowded and slow at check-in, but I was wrong. A short line but that gave us time to talk with the Jarrod, the Guest Experience Mgr. He was quick to engage... More

I know I booked during a busy period in town, but USD299 + tax if very over the top for a hotel that is not top of its game. Scaffolding on the front of the building, lift not working on a number of occasions, no real restaurant except for breakfast and dinner. My room had a constant loud noise from... More

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
