“Funky But Really Nice”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

I have stayed at this hotel many times, most recently last week. I have already enjoyed it. The rooms are uniquely decorated and they have animal skin patterned robes in the rooms. I would never decorate my home like this, but it is fun to stay in a place with a different sense of style. The rooms are comfortable and the views of downtown Chicago are great. I was on the 11th floor this time. I really like the restaurant in the hotel as well, and the complementary wine from 5 to 6 pm does not hurt the rating as all.
Whenever I am in this part of Chicago, I try to stay here.

Room Tip: The upper floors are better to get away from street noise, but I have liked all of the rooms I have...

This is a fantastic hotel! First, great group of people work at Burnham and this place provides A+ service. Also, this is a facility that provides old world charm but is very comfortable & modern. I go to Chicago often & this is one of the finest hotels I've used. Stay at this hotel if you're on business or a romantic weekend.

Hotel Burnham is a beautiful hotel with the most friendly hotel staff I have encountered in all my travels. The note from the housekeeping staff was a nice touch. I especially like the wine hour in the lobby! I will be sure to stay here again each time I visit Chicago.

What has impressed us most is the intelligent service and council by well educated personnel. The young man who brought our heavy bags to our room must have been a college student. He gave us a fascinating lecture on the history of Chicago in the 19th century and particularly on the architecture of the Burnham hotel. Elegant restaurant, good location in the center of the loop.

This was a great choice - and we had a two night stay in a very nice room with a queen bed and a lovely view.
The reception desk could not have been more helpful and the waiter in the breakfast area was really kind, too.
We thought this was really good value and a perfect location - just a couple of blocks from the Art institute and almost on top of the Washington (Blue) El station which whisked us back to O'Hare for our journey home.

Small but comfortable. Love the historic side of this building. Situated right across Macy and very convenient to get to many places by walking. Only setback is that it is on a very busy street so if you are light sleeper, this is not the place for you to try. The curtains are thick but it doesn't overlap properly so there is always a bright light seeping through the little gaps.
This hotel welcomes pets.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 407. Slightly larger room as it is an assessable room.
