4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I recently stayed at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel in Chicago for a work-related conference (hosted at the Four Seasons, only 2 blocks away). This was my first time staying at a Millennium hotel. The hotel was on the older side in terms of structure (small elevators) but had a charm to it. The rooms are what I expected from my... More

Hotel is old but nice. Rooms could use an update. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great location for walking around downtown. Public transportation is also with in walking distance. Lobby bar is just inside front door and is a great place for groups to gather.

This hotel is near it all. The rooms are well appointed and offer a warm feeling. The front desk associates are mannered and well trained. I would either stay here or at the JW Marriott during my next trip to Chicago.

Arriving at this hotel and walking into the grand lobby is breathtaking it's very Art Deco inside the hotel is just off Michigan avenue and 1 block from Lake Michigan. The rooms although small are well equipped and the bathrooms have oversized showers with rainforest shower heads in place of a bath. The hotel does have a bar and restaurant... More

Millennium Knickerbocker is a stylish old hotel in the heart of Chicago! It makes you feel like you took back in time. Its location is excellent: Just off the famous Magnificent millennium and lake Michigan, so you are close to everything. I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. Check in was fast and easy. I had a corner room,... More

For a stateside hotel, especially one in an old building, it is comfortable and the rooms fairly modern. As is a common problem with lots of downtown hotels in the US however the rooms are quite dark and when you delve a little deeper and look around the room it doesnt maintain the initial level of "gloss" that it is...

Stayed here with friends as part of a trip. Nice hotel with comfortable rooms. Good location for nearby walkabouts, shopping, restaurants etc. No free parking but that's to be expected. No free wifi which is disappointing given that most hotels offer this service in today's climate, it is quite fast though. Staff all very friendly. Would consider staying here again.

Very unworkable when needed to make an emergency cancellation. Tried to explain and there was no understanding. I have dealt with many hotels in the past and this was the worst.. Spend a little more and stay somewhere else.

My parents visited me this weekend and we decided to all stay in River North. This hotel had great reviews, however I can't find much to say that is great. First night we are placed right outside of the elevator, a cramped room with a faulty fan and tv. Go to ask the front desk in the morning to switch... More

This was our first stay at the Nickerbocker, but it won't be the last. That is because the room was comfortable, but primarily because of your staff, especially Joshua. He checked us in where we felt at home, he was so kind and helpful. Secondly Craig was very helpful as well. In the end it is people who make the... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
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.
