My daughter and I just stayed at the Hotel Burnham for a quick girl's midweek shopping trip. It is a beautiful historic hotel with great amenities and a wonderful restaurant. We are both In Touch Loyalty members so we were treated to free wireless access and the complimentary "$10 raid" on the mini bar. The reception desk as well as the rest of the staff were very welcoming and helpful. The hotel itself is worth exploring with it's interesting historical features. Our room was on the 12th floor and we had a great view of State Street. Macy's is across the street and there are plenty of other great shopping choices around the hotel for fashionistas. We took a quick cab ride to the Water Tower Place and enjoyed some additional shopping and exploring. Great choices for food both at the Atwood Cafe (we had breakfast two mornings) as well as the Loop area. There is also a nice wine hour in the cozy lobby every evening. We will definitely stay here again!

Dear Nville Girl,

Thank you very much for choosing Hotel Burnham for your Girl's Shopping weekend. I am delighted to hear that you enjoy your shopping experience on State Street as well as the Water Tower Place. We are so lucky to be in the center of town where you can find just about anything you want. Sounds like breakfast was also stellar from the Atwood Cafe. We are looking forward to your next visit, summer is approaching fast and State Street will have an amazing sale going soon.

Warm regards,

Stayed again at our favorite hotel in Chicago. The staff is very helpful and friendly -- service is excellent. The room was a bit small -- bathroom larger than other rooms we have had at this hotel. We were only there for one night, so the small room was not a problem. The location was perfect for walking to the theatre. The only negative was that when we returned from the theatre a bit after 10:00 on a weeknight, the bar was closed and so we were unable to have a nightcap and discuss the play with the other people we were with.

Dear Pat L,

Thank you very much for rating the Hotel Burnham 5 Stars! We really appreciate you feedback and is very excited that we could meet and exceed your expectations time again. Our goal is to give you an experience that is worthy of sharing with your friends and family, so they can stay with us also.

I hope we have the opportunity of accommodating you when you are in the Chicago Loop area. Thank again for the awesome review.

This hotel looks after its guests. I found the service to be excellent, the quality of the room to be good. The bathroom was a bit dated: still a bath tub (too small to lie in), when will they get good walk in showers). Breakfast was excellent and served well. The dinner card provided ample choice of delightful food.

The HB has been my yearly stay for my anniversary for the last 11 years.
It's a historic building with a fantastic architectural pedigree in an excellent
location. The staff is classy and remembers the little things - the things that
make a difference between a good stay and a great stay. I cannot recommend
the HB enough! Atwood Cafe is tops for breakfast too (serious coffee, too!).
Views are best from the 10th floor up (I've stayed on the 6th, 8th, 10th, and
15th floors).

One final note: If you stay off-peak (my anniversary is in Feb.) the rates
are dirt cheap!

It seems so often that hotels put up the only the best pictures of only their best rooms. Hotel Burnham lived up to the photos on their website. The room was exactly as pictured on their website. I am impressed! I had an amazing stay at the Hotel Burnham. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and really helped make the perfect weekend. I felt important, welcome, and comfortable. I cannot wait to return!

I live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, and my wife and I stay in the city every Spring, usually at a different hotel each time. We've been doing this for years, so we've stayed at lots of them. All of them have their strengths and weaknesses, but our favorite is the Burnham Kimpton. The service is friendly without being servile. The beds are firm and comfortable, and the rooms well appointed. The lobby and halls, with their beautiful old wood and metal work, has an old fashioned elegance that never goes out of style. The Atwood cafe, with its windows looking out on State and Washington, is elegant but intimate. And best of all, it's off the tourist track of Michigan Avenue, a little more in touch with the real, working heart of Chicago's Loop, but it's also just a two or three block walk straight to Millennium Park and the Art Institute. This is an old school hotel made fresh and new. Highly recommended.
