3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

It is definitely an older hotel and while the rooms have been updated at some point in time, they showed their age. And it took FOREVER for the water to heat up - ironic when they have a "save the environment" program encouraging reuse of towels when guests are wasting so much water waiting for it to warm up! I...

If you're looking for a cosy place to stay, look no further. The knickerbocker is like being back in Chicago in the older days. Vintage decor is wonderful and well kept. Saw the valet brushing off the spider webs outside the hotel with a big feather duster! Advance warning, if you like a big hotel room, this won't be for... More

My husband and I spent the weekend in Chicago for my Birthday. We stayed at the Knickerbocker and it was wonderful. The hotel is very nice and clean. Everyone was extremely nice and helpful. The room is small but comfortable. The shower was the highlight I really want one at home. Thank you for a great stay!!!!

This was our first visit to Chicago, and we were not disappointed. The only moan I have is that the receptionist on arrival was not the most cheerful. He tried to put us in a room with 1 queens size bed, when we booked a room with 2 double beds, his answer was you don,t need 2 beds do you!... More

Efficient check in/out. The rooms and lifts are dated but functionals. The location is brilliant and the staff are happy to help no matter what the weather is. It was pouring rain and the staff were hailing cabs for us in the rain as we had a dinner reservation. For the price, this was a great stay.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel between 9/15 and 9/19/2014. It is not a chip hotel, by any means, but everything in this hotel points to that. Linens are low quality, bed is terrible, my back hurts every morning, even though I usually do not have back problem. A shower pressure almost non existent, sink fills with dirty... More

This hotel location is really good. Next to the John Hancock center across from 900 Michigan Ave. Parking is $65 a day. The restaurant wasn't open for dinner. The rooms were nice and clean. The shower pressure was week. Overall a great value for Hotwire but I wouldn't be as satisfied if I was paying full price.

Walkable distance to all you want to see in Chicago. Very easy to catch a cab if you needed to go further. Staff was friendly, and responded quickly to our request for extra... More
