The room was comfortable and the service in the first floor cafe was great. I especially enjoyed the French pastries and Earl Gray Tea. The gentlemen in the lobby took care of my bags, the check in was efficient, and the bed was turned down when I arrived in the evening.

We did get a Travelzoo deal for $89, which was an excellent value, in our opinion. The rooms are very small, which is usually not a big deal. We come down with friends only to go to dinner and have a few cocktail in our room first. Therefore the room size was an issue for us. However, we managed. We... More

I stayed here for$89 per night out of a usual price of 250 per night. This was the worst hotel experience I have EVER had. I had HIGH expectations for this so-called 4 star $250 a night hotel. I really thought I had caught the deal of a lifetime. I was SADLY mistaken and here's why: 1. NO microwave in... More

Wasn't sure what to expect since we got this hotel room at the last minute but were pleasantly surprised by the modern look of the room. It was small but very comfortable. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were crisp. Nice touch screen monitor in the room that directed us around the area. Loved the sliding glass doors of... More

Front desk service was very good. 10 of us arrived an hour before allowed check in and they accommodated us. Room was typical size of most large city hotel rooms. Quiet and dark though so good for sleeping. Shower leaked all over the bathroom floor and the rain shower head wasn't strong enough to remove the soap from you. Overall,... More

The Knickerbocker is located just off Michigan Ave (north end). Great location for restaurants, shopping and walking! The hotel is very nice! Old school elegance in the modern era! Rooms are very comfortable. The bathrooms are very modern with outstanding rain showers! I recommend staying at the Knickerbocker when in Chicago.

Stayed at the Knickerbocker with 2 of my girlfriends for our girls getaway weekend. We chose this hotel because it was featured in a Travelzoo deal for $89/night. Check-in took a little longer than expected due to computer issues but the front desk staff was very helpful and ended up getting us squared away. The hotel itself is in a... More

Had a good stay. Very friendly staff. And a really beautiful lobby. Room was nice. But not the cleanest. Was just for a quick stay. Got a very good deal and so I suspect did others.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
