We stayed for only one night but I could have stayed longer. Hotel rooms were spacious, clean, quiet, comfortable and updated. Bathroom was very modern. The front desk staff was very helpful. Restaurant was great and lobby very comfortable. The location was great for us. We walked everywhere. We will definitely stay here again next time in Chicago.

I was in Chicago for business and our company travel agent suggested I stay at the Knickerbocker rather than the Crowne Plaza. The rate at the Knickerbocker was better, but further away from our office. I ended up going with the Knickerbocker, but not sure what to expect based on previous reviews on Tripadvisor. I will say that the main... More

The Millennium Knickerbocker is an old hotel, well maintained. My standard room was quite adequate and comfortable. Hotel services efficient and friendly. Location superb. A special note: the breakfast rush in the restaurant may be daunting. However, there is a buffet most people order. Don't skip breakfast! If you do, you will miss one of the nicest waiters I have...

We stayed at the Knickerbocker hotel for 3 days/ 2 nights for our 6th Anniversary and enjoyed our time in Chicago staying at this hotel.

We stayed 3 nights at the Knickerbocker for our Sister Weekend and had a great time. The room was clean and comfortable and was recently updated. I enjoyed the rain shower.

Wonderful older hotel off of Michigan Avenue. Great location near the John Hancock Building and the Magnificent Mile. It was within walking distance of restaurants and shopping and their staff was helpful and professional. Our room appeared to have been recently remodeled and being an older hotel was smaller than alot of newer properties but definately was clean and comfortable.... 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.
