Here for a conference. Average sums it all up, although the room size is definitely below that (think postal stamp). Non-descript entrance. Many better choices in this city and definitely not returning to this one.

This is a nasty hotel. When I booked here, no one mentioned it was undergoing extensive renovations. I arrived late on a Wednesday night. The front desk staff told me there was no food available at the hotel, and if I hurried, I might make it to a bar 3 blocks away that was serving food for another 20 minutes.... More

This hotel was under renovations but the staff did their best to make my stay as nice as possible. They are very helpful; they gave directions, helped with bags, offered ideas on food and snacks, and on and on. The rooms are small but the price is very good for Downtown Chicago. There is a wine tasting in the early... More

I stayed here while the hotel was undergoing renovations, and agree with the prior reviewer that the disruption associated with the renovations is truly minimal. Desk staff was, as always, spot-on with service, friendly, efficient. Amenities are the usual nice Kimpton, both in terms of bathroom amenities in your room and coffee in the am/ wine in the PM. The... More

I have stayed at this property before and have stayed in Kimptons around the country maintaining their "Inner Circle" status for a couple of years. When I mentioned to friends and colleagues how much this place has gone downhill, it seems to be common knowledge in the area. The price is high, even in a big city for the level... More

situated in amongst the shops bars and restaurants, easy access to main areas of interest. Staff were very accommodating nothing was ever too much trouble. Hotel was undergoing refurb but this did not effect our stay. Make sure you ask for a coffee maker In your room or else you have to pop downstairs in the lobby to get a... More

Though the hotel was under renovations while I was there the disruptions were minimal. Very small rooms but I was there on business so not really an issue. Very very nice staff. Could not be more helpful. Good restaurant. Only downside is that you must walk outside of the hotel and around the corner to access. Not so nice in... More

Just a few blocks off Michigan Ave so it was convenient to everything but in a much quieter location. Rooms have been renovated. Lobby is almost done. Good value. Beds were really comfortable. Large bathrooms. Would return to the hotel when in town again.

The walls are thin, expect to hear your neighbours, their arguments or the "good mornings" when they meet up. The bathrooms are closet sized and the bed is probably the worse Kimpton bed I've slept in but maybe it was just that it was a pillow top. The hotel was undergoing renovation but really didn't disrupt the stay. The adjoining... More

our stay at The Allegro Hotel was as part of a tour, ie, chosen by someone else. Great choice. Centre, clean, friendly and reasonably priced at around USD180 per night. While under redesign, it's still functioning perfectly. Pet friendly too, but maybe not your two pet ducks as one guest has done.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
