Hotel Burnham has a friendly staff, very clean rooms, and a great location. The atmosphere is relaxing and comfortable while the interior finishes are perfectly sophisticated. I enjoyed hanging out in the lobby during the nightly wine reception.

We returned to Hotel Burnham after staying last year. It felt like we were returning home. We were treated very well and every need was taken care of by all of the staff. Everyone is so friendly and helpful at Hotel Burnham. When we return to Chicago, this is the only place we will stay!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are good with interesting views from large windows.

The staff at this hotel is remarkably good. Everyone knows their job and when they promise something it gets done. Everyone is very friendly and efficient. The bartender at the Atwood makes a terrific martini - which is a lot more rare than it should be.

Rooms are very nice - comfortable, clean and attractive. Smaller than some but certainly not cramped. Beds very comfortable and the AC system very quiet - a huge plus for me. Cool that you get an actual room key - not a plastic card.

The building is very cool and the recent upgrade did not destroy the charm. Location is very convenient to public transportation and within walking distance of most attractions. Loved the complimentary wine and beer each night.

I can't think of reason to stay anywhere else in Chicago.

This is now my hotel in Chicago; I will not stay anywhere else. The location in the historic Reliance Building in The Loop is perfect for me. The building is meticulously restored while having all upgraded amenities (e.g., electrical outlet hub, new furniture, coordinated interior design, big screen tv, exercise room, excellent water pressure and temperature). Frankly, I wish I could live here. Best of all, the staff became instant friends--with their sincere (not phony and overbearing) attention, terrific advice (again, not intrusive, but upon request), and warm personalities. When I'm in Chicago next, you'll see me there.

Room Tip: The hotel is at a major, historic intersection in The Loop, which makes it a great location. On the...

This elegant hotel was fantastic all round: Our room was elegant, comfortable and well appointed (really useful electrical socket 'hub' on the desk, large TV etc.) Service was excellent; all staff were welcoming, really well informed, friendly, and just seemed to know exactly what you needed (for example, could sense if you were in a rush or had time for a chat). Special mention to Darnell on reception and Alex on the door who really made us feel welcome and who imparted some good local knowledge.

There are also nice additional touches like the free daily wine reception (beer also available) and free Starbucks coffee in the mornings. There are also a couple of bikes available for hire free of charge (helmets and locks provided). The gym was small but sufficient for most exercise aficionados.

The only negative comment I have is the slight lack of storage space for clothes and bags. That said, we stayed for three nights and managed easily enough.

Located a couple of blocks from Millenium Park, it's 45 minutes on the Blue line to Chicago O'Hare aiport and $8 by taxi to the Hancock Tower (walkable in less than 30mins).
