Great place - close to Lincoln park and zoo and rush street - parking at the 360 two blocks away is very convenient - 35 USD a night and that’s exceptional for Chicago - rooms are clean - bar downstairs - great stay - masks to be used in public areas -

Hotel's Favorite
I upgraded to a really large corner room with a view out onto the street in front, Well worth the extra money. I walked in and the entrance is separated from the bedroom.with a large beautiful bathroom to the right, a table to put things on in the middle, and a closet and nice dressing area to the left. The bedroom has two large windows giving lots of natural light and the deco and modern furniture gives the feel of slick nostalgia. Everything was very tasteful and well thought out. The mattress and linens on the bed were of really high quality. The temperature of the room was easy to maintain with the thermostat. The bathroom had a tub with a rain shower, or you could use a hand held wand sprayer. The location is great since it is half a block from Michigan Avenue and one block from the best beach on Lake Michigan. The Front Office Manager, Candice, was very helpful with answering all my questions and suggesting places to eat and shop. She went above and beyond to help with anything we needed. I will definitely go back for the "old world charm" and feeling of history and nostalgia you get at a luxury hotel like the Knickerbocker.

I would not only not recommend this hotel to anyone, but also absolutely condemn its deceiving marketing and heavy price tag. The service offered was as if it’s a typical motel. I’d have been better off staying at one of those mid level hotels like Courtyard or Hampton. 1) No cart/dolly available to carry the luggage; I and spouse had to make multiple trips in heat and with an infant to drag our essentials from vehicle to elevator and then to the room for our few-days stay 2) No bellman or porter to help 3) The accessibility buttons to open the door automatically didn’t seem to work throughout - had to awkwardly push the door with my butt or shoes or elbow every time when carrying the infant or the stuff 4) No valet service 5) No adjacent parking; had to park a block away for an additional payment to a 3rd party and then walk back with the remaining hand-carry items 6) The elevator stinks of mold and has a layer of some sort sticking where the doors slide in - clearly they don’t realize that there’s a difference between a historic or old-fashioned look vs. an old disgusting look 7) The carpeting smells like it hasn’t been shampooed in ages. 8) The bedding felt dusty and had dust mites. 9) The curtains smelled 10) The room was suffocating - maybe because of a combination of nauseating carpet, curtains, and bedding 11) The room is so dated that it’s not even funny and it’s much tinier than a typical hotel room 12) (Upon opening the glass windows for ventilation) found that it probably wasn’t cleaned/washed for a year or two - it had a thick layer of dust - the screen mesh was cracked and disgusting as well. 13) There’s no refrigerator (hullo where do we keep our infant’s food or our leftovers?) 14) There’s no microwave 15) There’s no room service to bring an extra soap, shampoo, or another room essential 16) The low wattage energy-saving bulbs reminded me of some sort of highway motel 17) No USB ports in the lamp or side tables like a lot of modern hotels now have (to an extent that I have stopped carrying the power plug and only have my charging cord handy) 18) Right before checking in, we failed to get a confirmation (over the phone) for how they’ve sanitized the room, or if they’ve left a 24-hour gap between guests - COVID ALERT!!! 19) Restroom/bathroom had no privacy - the door couldn’t be fully closed - the lock was jammed as well 20)When taking a shower, because of the broken seal in the sliding door of the bath area, water would flood out to the floor. Seriously how hard is it to put on a new seal? 21)When I tried to shave, the mirror on the sink is much farther away into the wall - the position of the overhead bulb is also such that there’s no light on my face - I wasn’t able to shave and trim my mustache and goatee with accuracy like I am in general virtually anywhere I’ve stayed 22)When we headed back after one of our all-day tours, the room had little mosquito-like insects flying around - wonder how often pesticides are used I have more to share - but this hotel is just not worth my energy and time. Upon calling the guest services, most of the issues were somehow mysteriously connected to COVID, which is absolutely nonsense - because if nothing, doing business the way they’re doing is in fact going to be the real COVID spreader. ATTENTION: COVID ALERT!!

The only good thing about this hotel is the location. Only one person worked the front desk so there is always a line. The room was not clean. Torn and stained carpet. Peeling wallpaper and scuff marks on the walls. I’m sure there are many better choices in the area - wish I had found one before I booked.

Just terrible. The ADA room was totally inadequate and unsafe for a wheelchair-restricted individual. There was no way for an individual in a wheelchair to exit the room, no ability to call for emergency assistance, there was no phone in the room and the rooms smelled of mold and smoke. The desk staff was unapologetic and unhelpful. The hotel is dirty and inadequately appointed. Beyond gross.
