If you're looking for a cosy place to stay, look no further. The knickerbocker is like being back in Chicago in the older days. Vintage decor is wonderful and well kept. Saw the valet brushing off the spider webs outside the hotel with a big feather duster!
Advance warning, if you like a big hotel room, this won't be for you. The rooms are small but big enough to fit 2 people comfortably, no more than that. Lovely big TV at the end of the bed and a fancy computer on the desk that gives you loads of information about Chicago for free!
The only reason this gets 4 stars rather than 5 is because of the shower. They have fitted rainfall showers which are my absolute favourite thing in the world.. When they work properly. There is not nearly enough water pressure so it feels like a light drizzle rather than rainfall. There is a handheld shower head which works better in my opinion!
The hotel doesn't offer any room service but they are happy to let you know the various take out places who will deliver to the hotel, and ring you when it arrives!
All in all, a nice hotel for someone who doesn't mind a small room!
