4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed two nights at the Knickerbocker in March 2015. Found the hotel to be a good location, just off the Magnificent mile. Easy walking distance to everything. We were on the second floor, the room was nice but a little tired. They don't have room service which is odd, but there is a café on the ground floor. We... More

Great location but rooms the size of a cruise ship room. Very small & uncfortable bed. Staff nice & accommodating. Spend the extra money on a nicer room! Showers not the best and when getting dressed either me or my husband had to leave the room because no room! One day I took all of my things to the spa... More

Great hotel to serve as a base for enjoying Chicago's Miracle Mile! Got an early check in and had two really nice rooms with the most comfortable hotel beds experienced in years. The lobby bar had a Friday night piano player, followed later by a jazz trio, and large screen TVs for sporting events. Although we caused a minor accident... More

Usually I only write reviews for hotels, restaurants and activities that I rate highly, but in this case, I do think the Millennium Knickerbocker is coasting on its reputation. The location, one block off Michigan Ave. is great and the lobby has a cool factor with a small classy bar where patrons can see and be seen, but upstairs things... More

Great location to see and do everything the Windy City has to offer. We stayed here in September and the staff was friendly and treated us as family. The rooms were clean and fresh. The hotel caters to all business, romantic trips, and fans to see sporting events as that's what group we fell in.

This is a great hotel still giving a personal service in a big city. The outside belies the fact that it is borderline boutique, but by the time you get to your room you know you are in something a bit special and a bit different, even if the name didn't give it away. Excellent location, with Lake Michigan and... More

The Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel is a great destination stay for individuals, couples, business travelers and families. One of the highlights of my stay was to experience a promotion that is being currently run by Millennium Hotels and Resorts and it is called the Ask Alfred family program; it is an add-on amenity to any room package for just $15 per...

My husband and I booked our stay through Expedia after reading the reviews online. The hotel was very classy and well maintained. Everyone was very attentive and courteous. I also had read a review about the rooms being small, that is not the case. Plenty of space & the bathroom was huge. Great location being steps from the magnificent mile.... More

My partner and I booked our hotel through the international housewares show for this weekend (march 7 &8). We drove to Chicago and by the time we arrived at the Knickerbocker ( and had the valet park our car) we were told that unfortunately the hotel had overbooked themselves and had acquired us a room at the Allerton. Now why... More

We reserved our room a few weeks in advance and paid for it in advance. We got a call around 6pm the night of check in telling me the hotel was over booked and they didn't have a room for us. However they has given us accommodations at a hotel with a same rating just a few blocks away. We... More
