I live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, and my wife and I stay in the city every Spring, usually at a different hotel each time. We've been doing this for years, so we've stayed at lots of them. All of them have their strengths and weaknesses, but our favorite is the Burnham Kimpton. The service is friendly without being servile. The beds are firm and comfortable, and the rooms well appointed. The lobby and halls, with their beautiful old wood and metal work, has an old fashioned elegance that never goes out of style. The Atwood cafe, with its windows looking out on State and Washington, is elegant but intimate. And best of all, it's off the tourist track of Michigan Avenue, a little more in touch with the real, working heart of Chicago's Loop, but it's also just a two or three block walk straight to Millennium Park and the Art Institute. This is an old school hotel made fresh and new. Highly recommended.
