“Great boutique hotel in convenient location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Just back from 4 nights at the Silversmith Hotel and I would most definitely return. Lovely arts and crafts design, friendly and very helpful staff and quiet comfortable room... all at a good price. If you are looking for a room with a view, this is probably not the place for you... there are likely some on upper floors but the hotel is right next to the elevated train so you are just as likely to have no view at all. That was no problem with me, but something to keep in mind.

Free internet a plus.

Spent a first time business trip there in April and it was incredible. From the wonderful staff at the front door, front desk, restaurant staff and housekeeping. Couldn't have asked for more. Thank you for making my first stay in Chicago AWESOME!

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter.

Located one block from famed Michigan Ave. and Millennium Park, the Silversmith Hotel offers exceptionally clean and large rooms; a great and helpful staff; and security. The hotel's location is perfect if you want to stroll through Millennium Park or visit the Art Institute. Prices were reasonable for a big city hotel and more importantly, the beds/pillows were comfortable. The hotel is located within the Chicago Loop - so ask for a high floor - although the rooms are well insulated from exterior noises. Suggestions: free coffee in the morning in the lobby would be greatly appreciated. Upgraded computers (including Macs) would also be appreciated.

Room Tip: High Floors have less Loop noise.

We stayed in an executive king room for 2 nights Easter weekend using a Groupon.

The staff is very friendly, efficient, and helpful.

The room was large, clean and had very high ceilings. It included WIFI, a refrigerator, coffee maker, safe and 2 flat screen TV’s. We enjoyed our room location on the 5th floor, near the elevator, with a view of the train. We like white noise so loved the sound of the train and also liked that the window in the bedroom actually opened.

Our package included breakfast each morning at Ada’s, which was very good. . . . choice of egg, hash browns, bacon or sausage, two pancakes and a beverage.

The Silversmith location is excellent . . . just steps to the L, buses, shopping, theaters, restaurants, bars, Millennium Park, Art Institute, etc.

We had stayed here once before and will definitely stay here again.

Great little hotel right in the heart of the city. Employees were friendly and helpful, the room was clean, and the food and location were perfect. The valet offered some breakfast coupons for local places when he heard I was checking out early the next morning.

Room Tip: I was on the side of the hotel facing the alley, away from the El. The rooms facing the El might be...

A very authentic and original hotel with some great features. Easily accessible from the airport via the city train and costs $5 each. Great centre location for seeing the sights. Staff were very helpful and welcoming

This hotel is perfectly located, right by the trains (no noise problem), close to Millenium Park and easy walking to all sights. Had an upgrade to a suite which was perfect (room 905). No great views but I don't spend all of my time looking out of a window! Very clean and comfortable, friendly staff and great value. I would stay at this boutique hotel again and recommend it to others
