“Nice Hotel Perfect Location”
Reviewed September 4, 2014

My family and I stayed here for a conference and we loved the location! So close the American Girl Doll store, old John Hancock, carriage rides, shopping, Navy Pier. The staff was friendly and helpful as well. We will be back!

Being from NYC,what I mean is even though the Legiondary M. Knickerbocker is located on a quiet street; called E. Walton Place,across from the Landmark DRAKE Hotel, you can dress Casual! The rooms are Comfortable; and may I add, the shower will be you down into a mellow state in preporation for the body absorbing bed to retire you in to "slumberland' in your Clean "Superior" room after day of stolling about in this wonderful walkabout city called Chicago. The location is Convient to all you want to do, with easy access to public transportation at a reasonable price. By the way, make sure you check out the Martini Bar; the bar staff are ready, willing, and able, and say hello to Michael!

My husband and I stayed at the Millennium Knickerbocker during Independence day weekend 2014. The location is great, steps from Michigan Ave, the lake front and a short walk to Navy Pier. The hotel is historic so feels a little dated but the rooms are modern and very clean!

My family and I recently visited Chicago to see the Air/Water Show. Wanted to stay near the Lake and chose Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel. We were not disappointed. It's always about location, location location and this hotel was perfect for that. It also has a lot of history dating back to the 20s, but above all that, hotel was just what we needed. Room was clean, updated and perfect. Staff was friendly, professional and always helpful. Bonus, breakfast was included.

Recently stayed three nights over the labor day weekend and booked the trip via expedia. Staff was very friendly. We arrived at 9 am Friday and when we asked if they would hold our bags until check in, they said they had a room available and waived the early check in fee. Which was appreciated. We had a king size supreme room which was clean. The bathroom only had a shower, which while very nice, had no place to put a foot up when you wanted to shave your legs. Its just one of those little things that only a woman would notice. I loved that they provided bathrobes. The location is great for walking and exploring the city. My only complaint was they did not provide free wi-fi, which I expect most hotels to provide. It seemed stingy to me for such a nice hotel to not provide that service to their guests. We did not eat at their restaurant or drink at the bar as there are too many other options within the city.

I highly recommend the Belgian Bakery about a block and a half up Walton. They had the best baked goods in the city for a reasonable price and very high quality. I also recommend the Indian restaurant next to the bakery. They have a very good Indian buffet for a reasonable price.

This deal through Travelzoo was fantastic. The hotel was updated, clean, professional and welcoming. The hotel staff was accommodating and very helpful. We asked, and they recommended the easiest and least expensive way to get where we wanted to go, and hooray, it worked out wonderful. The breakfast was included and very good and great coffee! We had a whole group going to the Detroit Tiger game and we had a blast. The city is so clean and friendly, I love it.

We recently stayed at the "Knick" and very much enjoyed our stay. While the hotel is not perfect I feel it offers value like few others in the Magnificent Mile area. Booking very far in advance we found a rate that was extraordinary for the labor day weekend. This allowed me and my traveling partner (my mother) to book seperate rooms which assuredly made our stay truly enjoyable. The rooms were well kempt and wholly satisfactory, but in truth were small and not meant to accomodate more than two persons. Indeed, if possible, single occupancy would be optimal. This reflects the fact that this is a historic hotel from an era where small rooms were the norm.
The plus for this hotel, besides the very good rooms, are a superior location that is less congested (and more peaceful) than the area immediate south of this area. Moreover, it is close to a host of excellent restaurants including Luxbar and Gibson's. Often, at cocktail hour, a pianist performs in the lobby which adds to the atmosphere. On one evening the pianist played "Somewhere over the Rainbow," which promted an audience member to perform an interpretive dance with scarf to that rendition. On the following night the pianist played a request of the mellifluous and haunting "Laura" with a slightly jazzy interpretation that was perfect for the lobby setting.
The admontions of the property are that the rooms in general are not especially large, the doors lack dead bolts for additional security, and the air conditioning units tend to be rather noisy. In truth, I ended up turning off the AC while I slept.
If shopping is your perogative this is an ideal location as it is proximal to Macy's, Bloomy's, and Chicago's Rodeo Drive, that is Oak Street.
In the end, the vast majority of persons wiil be pleased by their stay at th Millenium Knickerbocker.
