This hotel is littered with charm and ambiance. I absolutely was taken away as soon as I entered the doors. Although the entrance is small, the lobby and rooms are huge! I had a King Suite that me and my husband loved for the high ceiling, extra space and french doors, which kept him from waking me up in the morning.
Everything else about the hotel was also worth the price of the stay including the gym, on-site restaurant, and especially the staff. I didn't see one disgruntled employee while we were there and everyone really went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and happy.
I woudl recommend this to families and couples in town for either business or leisure. The close proximity to restaurants, shopping, museums, and attractions like The Willis Tower make it very easy to accomplish a lot during your stay.

Beautiful over-sized room. Very clean and luxurious. I am used to staying in hotels in Chicago that are much more expensive and this was BY FAR a better deal. Will definitely stay there again!
The location is very understated, but is close to shopping and only about a mile from Water Tower square on the Magnificent Mile. I usually stay in the Palmer House Hilton and wanted to save money. I did not expect much, but was very surprised. It was an excellent experience.

We stayed here for a week and were impressed with the size of the room and the staff. Everyone was accommodating from the doormen to the desk personnel to housekeeping. The room was large and quiet even though the "L" runs right outside the front door. Not only that the price was right and the location is great, close to everything - Grant Park, Museums, Soldier Field, Michigan Avenue shopping, taxis, and as noted the L station is right outside.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Chicago for vacation. We come frequently and will definitely return here

Room Tip: The upgraded suites are great with more room

The Silversmith has great sized rooms with super comfortable beds. The staff is friendly, informative and a pleasure to interact with. The hotel is in the most perfect location- close to the CTA ('L') and in walking distance to great restaurants, shops and attractions. Definitely worth it and I recommend this hotel to anyone looking for quality, convenience and value!

My wife and I took a 4 day trip to Chicago and had the good fortune to stay at The Silversmith. We had a king bed room but upon our arrival were upgraded to a suite which gave us a little more room to unpack and get settled in. The hotel itself is right downtown, steps from the "L" and a block from Michigan Ave and Grant park. The location made trips to the Sears Tower (having lived in Chicago a number of years ago I refuse to call it the Willis Tower), Field Museum, Shedd, Art Institute, etc very easy to manage. The one downside was a very small exercise room, but when I come back this will be my first choice to stay.

Thank you for your review. So nice to hear that we were able to upgrade you to a suite. As you noted, we are so close to everything that it makes it easy to get to around.
We will see about expanding our fitness center in 2013.
Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon.

Great location for the hot chocolate race in town. Beautiful decor of arts and crafts style. Wonderful service with staff that went out of their way to accommodate. When we checked in they upgraded our room and also threw in a premium air mattress for no extra charge. L train was not very loud at all. Location is so close to shopping! Right around the corner from Macy's and many affordable places to eat.
