“Our stay in Chicago”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Bright warm room with a giant sized comfortable bed. Lifts fast . Restaurant for breakfast was very good and the waiters enjoyed their work as it showed. Staff on the desk helped a lot and the location was close to shops and churches
The one down side was the free drinks at Happy Hour, which was OK if you drank wine, if you did not, tough luck, not even an orange juice.

We would recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Try to book a room at the end of the halls as they are larger

Thanks so much for reviewing the Allegro. We are glad that you had a nice stay with us.

Sorry that our hosted evening Wine Hour did not hit the spot for you. We do occassionally offer craft beers and always have fruit infused water, but if you ask us next time, I'm sure we can find an OJ for you to enjoy!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

I stayed here for almost 2 weeks in April. While it was convenient and of course the staff was pleasant and friendly, it is not the best Kimpton in Chicago. It's older and dated and the bathroom is AMAZINGLY small. It's adequate at best. It's convenient to the river and EL.

The restaurant associated with it is just ok, but the bartender was quite nice.

If I had to stay again, I would, but I would argue for a different spot.

Thanks for being honest with your feedback and for taking the time to share it with us.

While we can't do much about the bathroom size, we are plannig a refresh of our guest rooms at the end of the year, so stay tuned for exciting updates.

I was referred to the Hotel Allegro in Chicago for a business meeting and it was a very pleasant surprise to spend the night in a hotel with personality. I had signed up for the Kimpton free membership as offered on the website and discovered on arrival a $10 mini-bar credit for my membership. Not many hotel even offer mini-bars and this one was excellent for my missed lunch. Then at 5pm they hosted a complementary wine and passed nibbles in their lobby. It was a real wonderful social event. The rooms are lovely with character even my small bathroom had a lot of personality including a great shower. Definitely worth a visit.

Stayed here for business for 3 nights and I was very surprised at how nice it was. Sort of a boutique hotel meets the W in a fun way. The staff is very friendly and they seem to go out of their way to make it comfortable and welcoming. The front desk was great, the bar was fabulous and the free wine at the end of each day is amazing. It was a great experience. Location is great, right near all the theaters and short walks or cab rides to anyplace you want to go downtown.

Room Tip: Ask for the king premium which is a king br plus living room suite with huge closet and bathroom.

Stayed one night passing through. The initial impression was poor as no door staff met us and we had to struggle in with our luggage and find our way to elevators to the reception area on the first floor. However the reception staff were very helpful.
Rooms are small and not views from the rear of hotel. Bed comfortable, tiny bathroom, but good facilities - iron, luggage rack. exercise mat and a card offering all types of complimentary items if required.
Wine reception in the lobby early evening and free tea and coffee early mornings.

Room Tip: Front of hotel better

Booked this hotel to be close to the Lyric Opera. Am glad we did! Great service starting with the valet parking. Lovely room and beautiful lobby area. Had dinner and breakfast at 312 Chicago attached to hotel and also recommend this restaurant.
