“Amazing hotel and location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW via mobile

Arriving at this hotel and walking into the grand lobby is breathtaking it's very Art Deco inside the hotel is just off Michigan avenue and 1 block from Lake Michigan. The rooms although small are well equipped and the bathrooms have oversized showers with rainforest shower heads in place of a bath. The hotel does have a bar and restaurant there however being within easy reach of plenty of other places to grab food and drinks. The staff are friendly and always smiling with a can do attitude.

Millennium Knickerbocker is a stylish old hotel in the heart of Chicago! It makes you feel like you took back in time. Its location is excellent: Just off the famous Magnificent millennium and lake Michigan, so you are close to everything.
I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. Check in was fast and easy. I had a corner room, clean and large enough with comfortable bed and linens. Staff were friendly and helpful. They had great advice for getting the most of my stay in the city.
I recommend this hotel to anyone for a pleasant stay in Chicago at an affordable price.

For a stateside hotel, especially one in an old building, it is comfortable and the rooms fairly modern. As is a common problem with lots of downtown hotels in the US however the rooms are quite dark and when you delve a little deeper and look around the room it doesnt maintain the initial level of "gloss" that it is trying to portray.

For such a central location it is fairly quiet which is a big bonus.

The location is excellent however, just by the main shopping street of Michigan Avenue, in a classy and safe neighbourhood.

Pros: Location, fairly modern rooms
Cons: Beds/pillows not the best quality, gym is very shabby.

Stayed here with friends as part of a trip. Nice hotel with comfortable rooms. Good location for nearby walkabouts, shopping, restaurants etc. No free parking but that's to be expected. No free wifi which is disappointing given that most hotels offer this service in today's climate, it is quite fast though. Staff all very friendly. Would consider staying here again.

Very unworkable when needed to make an emergency cancellation. Tried to explain and there was no understanding. I have dealt with many hotels in the past and this was the worst.. Spend a little more and stay somewhere else.

My parents visited me this weekend and we decided to all stay in River North. This hotel had great reviews, however I can't find much to say that is great.

First night we are placed right outside of the elevator, a cramped room with a faulty fan and tv. Go to ask the front desk in the morning to switch rooms which they allowed but now have us in a room with stains on the carpet and again tv isn't working. Not sure if because it is the Final Four that they are blocking TBS.

I won't be back.

This was our first stay at the Nickerbocker, but it won't be the last. That is because the room was comfortable, but primarily because of your staff, especially Joshua. He checked us in where we felt at home, he was so kind and helpful. Secondly Craig was very helpful as well. In the end it is people who make the difference, and your Joshua is on the top of the list, in our opinion!
