We stumbled across this hotel when researching for our holiday. I always try and book hotels based on accessibility to public transport, and being right on The Loop this hotel fitted the bill perfectly. But location is the least of its virtues... Thanks to the lovely Angela, we were upgraded to a suite due to it being our honeymoon, and... More

This hotel is exceptional value. We stayed here for 3 nights, initially in a suite and then in a regular room. Many previous reviewers have documented the excellent quality of the rooms. As the facility is adjacent to the Stock Exchange building and next to the Chicago Board of Trade, there are many first class business services immediately available in... More

If you stay in this hotel, you can skip the observation decks in the tallest skyscrapers. The view from the rooms is simply amazing. Ask for a room facing north. I stayed in room 4012 and I had a 180 degrees view of the whole downtown and the lake. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the lake and... More

We were passing through Chicago by train and found this incredible hotel near the station. It's perfect all-around - a small hotel perched atop the city. Incredible views, breakfast over a main street, executive gym, and a great price for what you get. It's in perfect shape even though a tad out of date. The staff are all helpful too.... More

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
