The first thing that impressed me was its location, Magnificent Mile/Michigan Avenue was at 2 minutes’ walk and Lakeshore drive was at 4 minutes’ walk on the other side. 360 Chicago, Cheese cake factory and Water Tower were 5 minutes away on Magnificent Mile from the hotel. It’s a beautiful historic hotel. The hotel’s façade gives a royal look and... More

Came in for the P Konerko # retirement at US Cellular Field. Stayed at the Knickerbocker which is a great location in downtown. You are 2 blocks from Water Tower and Bloomingdales for all you shoppers out there. Also only a few blocks from the Redline which can get you to both Wrigley Field or US Cellular.

Nice clean, simple yet elegant room. Two minutes walk to the Mag Mile and 5 minutes walk to the lake shore. 360 Chicago and the Cheesecake factory are at a stone's throw. One can walk to Chicago History Museum and to Water Tower Place also within 5 minutes. Reception was always manned by smiling, friendly yet thoroughly professional gentlemen.

The hotel itself was lovely, clean & rooms spacious! The lobby and Martini Bar was wonderful. Great Martini's! Staff very helpful! It was convenient with having shopping and resturants nearby. Lots to get to within walking distance if you choose. Would highly recommend this hotel!

Two of us ladies stayed here for two days last August 2014. What a wonderful stay! It is located on the north end of Michigan Ave (it's the old Playboy Hotel - across the street from the Drake). The staff was helpful and very friendly, always asking if we were enjoying our stay. The room was clean and quiet. We... More

I took my granddaughter on a trip to Chicago last June and we stayed at the Millennium Knickerbocker. The room was very comfortable. The staff were very helpful and always happy to assist with directions and recommendations. Delightful historic hotel.

We have always stayed at this Hotel or The Drake...this time our room smelled of mold; I hate to think that they gave us an older unused room simply because we booked from an outside company at the lower rate. Great deal for this Hotel...but now am leary to not book directly, there! Beautiful place however and the service is... More

The room was comfortable with a very posh bathroom. The staff were always helpfull. There was a regular piano playing in the reception area which varied from a party atmosphere to a subtle piano bar. Downside was that it was the only place in Chicago where we had to pay for the internet, until we found that we could get... More

We stayed for one night Memorial Day weekend while celebrating an anniversary/birthday. We got a phenomenal rate on Hotels.com. The hotel is ideally located in the heart of the Gold Coast and just steps from the lake. The lobby is quaint and trendy and the rooms are tight, but well-appointed, clean, and comfortable. Despite its location, the hotel room was... More

A beautiful hotel. Great location, and lovely decor. Friendly and professional staff, very knowledgeable and effecient. Most memorably, a snafu arose after asking their concierge to book a tour. The snafu was perhaps due to my not being more clear, but they took responsibility. They not only verbally apologized, they followed up by sending chocolate strawberrys and champagne with a... More

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.
