This is not one of the better Kimptons. The rooms have always been sort of small and under-renovated -- bad old bones that the flashy decor can't hide. But I've noticed a lack of investment (read: upkeep) in Kimpton hotel rooms in the run-up to the sale to IHG and the Allegro's rooms seems to have suffered as much as... More

I have stayed at many Kimpton hotels and my first time at the Allegro was a delight. The lobby was exquisite and quirky and sublimely Kimpton! I hear they are renovating to make it even more Grander than the Budapest. Kidding aside, the hotel is perfectly situated, away from the fray, yet it is a quick walk over the Chicago... More

I have stayed at the Allegro quite a few times over the years, and wrote a TripAdvisor review three years ago. On a recent visit to Chicago, I returned to the Allegro and was not disappointed, even though the place was in the early stage of an ambitious renovation. As I remembered, the welcome was genuinely warm. My room --... More

Some time ago I stumbled across the Klimpton Hotel group online and was attracted to their pictures of modern, yet elegant lobbies and public areas. I was so taken with them that I signed up for their loyalty program without having stayed at any one of their properties. On a recent visit to Chicago I took the opportunity to stay... More

Jim R, We agree - the Allegro is very much "Old Chicago". Our building was built in 1926 and still retains much of the original architecture and classic Art Deco finished. We are in the midst of a dramatic renovation that will truly celebrate our Art Deco roots. Thank you for giving us a try! Warm Regards, Mary Fleming Hotel... More

before I moved to Chicago late last year, I would stayed at the Allegro for business trip. As several reviewers mentioned, the lobby is spacious with several seating area. There is one area towards the restroom and the restaurant that is quieter, which is a space good for post work-day meetings. As part of the Kimpton hospitality, there is a... More

I stayed at the Allegro one night for business. It's downtown Chicago so expect an older high rise hotel with small rooms. The decor is modern and the lobby is nice. It's decorated nicely and it has lots of areas to sit and read a book, congregate or generally relax. The front desk staff was friendly. The guy that checked... More

The staff at Hotel Allegro are amazing, especially Cody Umbach and Doug Kelly in Group Sales. The staff in that department have helped me set up some smaller group reservations for our company throughout the past year and have always had time to answer my questions.
