We love Chicago and decided to stay downtown for a change instead of traveling out to the 'burbs and catching the "L" into the city. Decided on the Knick because of its proximity and the fact that we like to check out historical hotels whenever we can. As others have said before it is half a block away from Michigan, two blocks south from the Hancock Tower, and about 5 blocks from the nearest "L" stop. Very convenient. We actually arrived a lot earlier than the designated check-in time and they allowed us to get into our rooms without a hitch. Everyone was extremely friendly, the concierge, the bell-man, and the wait-staff. Breakfast is very good with large portions. Salmon benedict is outstanding. Our room was a decent size but the view was a little lacking. Bed is very comfortable. Great bathroom with a rain shower and wand. You can turn both on while showering. I took longer than normal showers. Had a mini fridge with an honor bar. For an older hotel, it is very quiet and we didn't hear a sound from other guests. Only complaint is wifi costs $10 for a 24 hour period. We will certainly return.
