We had our first experience in the Allegro recently, and it couldn't have been better. The service and efficiency were top rate, the rooms were nice and the location was handy. We especially enjoyed the free late afternoon wine and cocktails from the bar in the expansive, comfortable lobby area. I have already recommended this hotel to friends and family,... More

Yes, my room was small. So was the bathroom. And the closet was "cute". But when you take into consideration that the hotel was originally built in the mid-1920's, it is fair to say that the size of the rooms are appropriate for the time period, compared to the excessive norms of today. I am a regular business traveler, so... More

I like the Allegro and will likely return. Unlike some rooms that have been mentioned, ours was ample; certainly not tiny. The bathroom was also large. This visit was marked by an unusual # of deficiencies that taken one by one would amount to nothing. Taken together, they suggested a systemic breakdown in either communication or quality control. On the... More

This hotel in the theater district is a quaint older hotel. The staff are very helpful, and the evening doorman deserves praise for mastering the cold, traffic and guest arrivals and departures. The public areas are nice, and the happy hour brings in lots of people. As a fan of older hotels, I'm afaird to say this was a disappointment.... More

Best part of this disappointing property is that you can practically shower and brush your teeth while using the toilet-- yes, THAT is how tiny the bathroom is. Don't understand the rave reviews, the rooms and bathrooms are pathetically small, the El sounds like it is IN the room, and the walls are paper thin. Skip this spot. Tho the... More

Thank you so much for sharing your feedback with us. We are sorry to hear that the room did not meet your expectations as far as the size goes as well as the city noise coming in. While we would love to change it, it's a bit tricky being that the Allegro is housed in a 1920's building. We are... More

If you're looking to be in the middle of theater district, this location is perfect. It was about 3 blks. from State St. shopping and several transportation options. The room was very small but adequate for a short stay. The bathroom was also small. The hotel was clean and stylish. There was complimentary coffee in lobby. The service at the... More

I spent a couple night at Hotel Allegro. The room and bathroom were very spacious and clean. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was perfect. I was able to leave my car with the valet, and I walked everywhere. The hotel was close enough to all the major sites in Chicago. I'd definitely... More

Stayed here for a conference. A nice place, but the room was tiny. The bathroom was also tiny. The closet was so tiny I couldn't hang up my clothes. The clothes bar was waist high and about 12 inches long. I had to hang my trousers and sport coat from the door as they would have been on the floor,... More

I had stayed here about 10 years ago with my fave companion, my dog. This time, rolled in w some friends to see a concert at the Cadillac Theater. Could not have been happier- comfy bed, clean room and very accommodating staff. Saved some dough parking about a block away.

Surprised my husband for his birthday with a weekend getaway. We had a corner king room on the 14 floor, the room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was small, only disappointment- no full size clear mirror. This hotel is great for a single person or couple, definitely not family due to size. This hotel... More
