Weekend end get away from the burbs for us to the city. This is by far one of the best hotels we have stayed in. The location close to beach, close to shopping and great restaurants, rush street etc. and John Hancock. The staff are wonderful, the Nix breakfast fabulous, the Martini Bar excellent food and service. The room was... More

Great place to stay...front desk, bar, restaurant all top notch service. Convenient location. I will stay here again. Room was clean, and it appeared to be recently updated. Rain shower was cool. As an online instructor for a university, desktop computer access was appreciated.

My husband and I stayed at the Millennium Knickerbocker over 4th of July weekend this summer. The location is excellent - easy access to shopping on Michigan Avenue, and just two blocks (5 minute walk) from Oak Street Beach. There are also several Divvy bike rental stations nearby - we used the one by Oak Street Beach - which made... More

The hotel has clearly updated their rooms recently and are very comfortable. Nice size flat screen televisions. Their staff was friendly including the front desk, bellhops, and doormen. We had a chance to have a drink at their bar as well. One negative is they wanted to charge something like $12/day for WiFi. Are you kidding me? Great location being... More

The Millenium is right by Michigan Avenue on the Miracle mile in Chicago. The water is 2 blocks east of the hotel. Everything you can think of is within walking distance. The property is well maintained and the rooms are very nice. I also liked that you could use their internet and wifi on the machine in the room, for... More

Overall, the hotel was efficient, clean but also had plenty of character. Breakfast pricing was reasonable, with all options being fresh, not buffets. Four minor issues. First, the concierge desk on a few occasions was not staffed. Secondly, the lobby/bar/restaurant area's open plan wasn't appealing. Third, and this is the case is many hotels, but why provide free internet in... More

We picked our hotel on the following criteria; price, location, and history. Family members were staying at the Westin. Our rate was nearly $100 less per night than it would be at the Westin (through Trivago), the MK was a very short walk rounding two corners, and a wonderful piece of nostalgic history; there are hotel tours! We were so... More

I was very pleased with this hotel chosen on Hotwire at Magnificent Mile Area - River North. This is a classic downtown hotel with a very nicely updated room and modern bathroom. I basically slept at the Knickerbocker so can only speak of the very comfortable king-size bed and great shower. Yes there rooms are not large.
