Beautiful Hotel.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jun 9, 2008
Beautiful hotel. We got a great deal over Memorial Day weekend and could not believe what a beautiful room we got on the 10th floor. Using the hotel's website we paid only $127/night, plus $20/night in taxes.

The hotel is in a great location, just a couple blocks from Millenium Station. We took the commuter rail in from Northern Indiana and only walked a few blocks to the hotel. No taxi needed.

The whole hotel is stunning. If you love architecture, then this hotel is a real treat for you. They have done a beautiful job of renovating and redecorating this building. The interior design is bold and whimsical in its approach. The Atwater Cafe down stairs is a fun and bold it its design. Just lovely.

Our room was stunning too-- it was a corner room with huge, huge windows on two sides. We had a sliver of a view of the lake and Mil Park (down Washington Ave). The furnishings were done in a deep navy blue and regal gold and were just stunning. The room had a king bed and a separate sitting room with work desk, divan, and entertainment center. The bath was very compact, but very nicely done. Our other windown overlooked the Chicago Theatre.

I've stayed several times in the Hotel Monaco and have enjoyed that property each time. For a change we went with the Burnham this time and I was very glad to have the chance to experience this hotel. I like both very, very much, but I prefer the interior design of this one. The richness of the colors made me feel like royalty!

As always, the service is very hospitable at Kimpton hotels. I can't say enough good things about this hotel.

I'd read great reviews before I stayed, but this hotel really must be seen and lived in to be fully appreciated! The attention to detail in the decor and restoration was amazing, I really felt like I was living in a building from a gloriously bygone era. The staff were helpful, food was good (though watch out for the slightly over-merry guests during the evening happy hour in the Cafe, when drinks are free -- had drinks slopped all over my sandals in the lift, not pleasant). Stepping out, there were shops and convenience stores, big and small, close by and the Magnificent Mile was within 10 minutes walk. Chicago itself is a beautiful city (it was my first time to visit), full of gorgeous architecture -- staying at the Hotel Burnham just added to the whole atmosphere.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at the Burnham and had an outstanding stay. They even accomodated our small dog, bringing a bowl of food and water to our room and giving him the royal treatment whenever we came into the hotel. Our room overlooked the Marshall Field's building and had a stunning view of the formal gardens and Frank Geary pavillion in Millenium Park with sailboats on Lake Michigan in the distance. Our small suite was beautiful with huge windows -- a comfortable place to lounge and soak in the city. Construction on the building across the street appears to be over. The location is fantastic. This is a wonderful place to stay for a car-free weekend. My only complaint was that the bathroom was a little small. But overall, we would stay there again in a heartbeat. And our dog agrees.

Had a great stay at the Hotel Burnham. Only wish we had had a chance to join everyone in the lobby for wine. The location of this hotel is perfect if you are planning on staying in the loop of Chicago. It is close to everything. We walked to shopping, shows and dinner. Our room was beautiful. The king bed was so comfortable and that bathroom was gorgeous. The staff was very courteous. Could not have asked for a better place to stay.

We arrived in Chicago for the first time and easily found this hotel from the unique address. The Receptionist was really helpful and quickly booked us in. Everthing was exactly as we had reserved.
The Delux Double Queen Room was not spacious, but the decor was impressive and everything you could wish for, from a toothbrush to a book about the hotels history was available to purchase from the honor- bar.
The Restaurant was equally stylish, with a range in the menu which made choosing difficult. We chose the fillet steak and were definately not disapointed. The deserts were superb.
When we returned to the room in the evening, the housekeeping staff had turned down the bedding, placed chocolates on the pillows and placed bath gowns ready for use. The lights were turned down and music was playing quietly in the background. Very impressive and restful. If you wanted a romantic setting it was there in overdrive.
Staff were very professional and the Concierge efficiently made reservations for two tours which we needed.
As a 'leisure guest' the breakfast was a little stressful, due to a 'breakfast meeting' taking place on the table next to us. The loud, forceful sales talk took away from a peaceful breakfast. Guests should be aware of these 'intruders' from the outside world, or maybe the staff could be a little more 'guest aware' when positioning groups in the breakfast room.
This is an excellent hotel and one I would recommend and I'm extremely hard to please!
