Hotel is on the 40th floor of an office block which is on top of the old stock exchange. The hotel reception is the security desk of the office block. So little know, don't be worried if even the taxi drivers don't know its there (as ours didn't). Centrally positioned right in the loop. you get your keys and have... More

The hotel is difficult to find and the check-in is completed by an individual at a security desk in the lobby of an office building. Take the elevator to the 39th floor, change to another elevator to the 40th floor and there are your rooms. The rooms were spacious, clean, well appointed and provided a wonderful view of downtown Chicago,... More

This hotel was very nice, it's in a quite part of town in the finance district. The reception is manned by security who were very helpful. The room was clean (maybe a little dated). I would definitely stay again.

I stayed here for just the one night at the start of a tour of the States. I arrived on a Saturday and the general area was quiet being the financial district. Once I got to the 40th floor where the hotel is located, it was so quiet I felt like I was the only one there. Peaceful yet ghostly.... More

The Buckingham Athletic Club Hotel. At first this place seems strange - perched atop an office block. And the athletic club is on a different floor using a different elevator. Then you enter your room and get one of the best views of Chicago and the Lake. The athletic club pool opens at 5a.m. and with breakfast starting at 6:30... More

Excellent hotel located on the 40th floor of Chicago Stock Exchange building. The location is perfect and most of the famous tourist spots are in the vicinity. It is well connected to the train service as well with station located right below the building. Lots of eating places are also located nearby. The building has heavy security as the 39... More

Couldn't fault it. Desk staff were all friendly and helpful. Athletic club facilities are excellent. Breakfast is spot on and a very welcoming start to your day. The hotel is quiet and we slept amazingly well. We had a room with a lake view and leaving the curtains open gives a lovely start to your day with the sun rise.... More

Parking: Convenient, located underneath the hotel. Reasonable. Check-in. We ran into several problems, because we were given the impression that the athletic club and the pool were separate from each other and that our daughter would be able to swim. NOT THE CASE!!! We were SO disappointed. And we did not receive any help from the staff - they kept... More
