What an incredible hotel! Where else can you find a hotel room guaranteed to be on the 40th floor inside the Loop at such a great rate? It was a bit tough finding it initially but once you discover it, you're golden. The gentleman at the desk was great - very friendly. He helped us with the elevator - which... More

Thanks to the reviews that I had read, I knew to go to the desk in the lobby of the Stock Exchange Building, and I knew that Angela was the right person to help us. She was VERY friendly, and got us right into our room, even though it was only 11am, and check-in is at 2pm. She gave us... More

This hotel has incredible view although if you arrive in the evening it's not obvious where it is. When I asked at what looked like the office block security I was then welcomed and given my key. The room was slightly old school but had free wifi and a great healthclub. I got the impression that there were only a... More

The Buckingham is a grand hotel with a really terrific pool, sauna, jacuzzi. It's by far the best urban hotel pool I have ever used in the USA. The hotel rooms are spacious with truly magnificent views from the 40th floor of the Chicago skyline. It's very near the Blue Line from the airport. Perfect for those who want to... More

Some reviews said that this hotel is kinda old, out of date, aged, etc. But just answer my question: would you disregard or dislike your grandma because she has seen too many summers in her life? You won't right? Especially not when she is good looking and loaded! This hotel is more than that: this hotel is unique, on best... More

Room is ok but out of date, no brushing set amenity, must bring your own. It is located on the 40th floor of the stock exchange center office building. Have to take 2 segment elevators to get to the room. Have free wifi n breakfast served at 3rd floor's athletic club. The club's facility is complementary. If you are coming... More

My friend and I stayed at the Buckingham Athletic Club Hotel for 6 nights. Our room (room 4020) was very big and clean and with a large bathroom. The view from the room was amazing especially during sunset. The only downside was that the hot water in the bathroom wasn't very hot and some mornings almost none existing but the... More

We were in Chicago to attend a concert at the United Center. The location was outstanding! Flew into O'Hare… jumped on the CTA Blue Line… which took us to LaSalle and Congress, directly across the street from the hotel. Union Station and State Street are a quick walk… the Brown, Orange and Pink Lines are steps away. This property is... More

We arrived at O'Hare and took a taxi - 45$ including tip for 2 people and 2 large suitcases. We told the driver that we wanted to go to 440 S La Salle Street. The building is large and a taxi driver is unlikely to know the hotel or athletic club exists as they take up a small part of... More
