We stayed at the Whitehall for 6 nights at the beginning of November. The room was spacious and well appointed. The staff were most helpful particularly at the front desk and the guys at the door. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The location of the hotel is excellent at the top of Michigan Avenue-great for the shops. We... More

I got in early and I was disappointed that my room wasn't ready yet but since I waited so long they ended up giving me a room with a better view. It was a great location- close to everything. would stay here again!

Hotel on an historical building, nice furniture, silent, excellent location, 1 block from the Hancock Tower. The price is good for what it offers, many restaurants nearby, 1 chinese location with fair price at the hotel, its a good deal!

The hotel is a nice hotel to stay at, we were on business and found it quite comfortable, and within easy walking distance to several nice restaurants, Dictka's was a great place to eat and was very close to hotel. Beware of the parking rates $57 per night, which I thought was very high since the hotel is not cheap... More

This hotel is good value for the price. The location is central. The beds are very comfy and the free breakfast that came with the room is delicious and generous. I recommend the pancakes! The hotel atmosphere is cosy, and the staff helpful and friendly.

The numerous renovations still leave this historic hotel feeling very dated. Hallways very dank. Tiny elevator. Not enough room lighting and the window had an awning that blocked sunlight as well. Room layout not good and desk area tight. Bar area very dated. Decent Chinese restaurant attached but very slow service. Conference room cramped and box lunches provided tasteless. Business... More

My office used the Whitehall Hotel for some clients as it was one of the few available for a convention they were attending. I sent the hotel a credit card authorization for payment for the rooms only to have the credit card compromised with on line purchases from clothing stores. Since I needed to have my client's rooms paid for... More

Wasn't too impressed with the bathroom, but the bed was nice in my suite. Concierge wasn't too helpful, found more help from the valet outside! Overall, a great location to stay in and everything just a short walk away.

My Wife and I stayed here while visiting a friend in the city who goes to Moody. I'm always a fan of older and historic hotels more than modern hotels. They always have their own personalities. Yes the Elevators are smaller and slower, but it's to be expected at an older hotel. Service was very friendly, and beds were very... More
