I have been to Chicago many many times and have never stayed at the Allerton Hotel, until last weekend. My friends and had planned a couples weekend in Chicago and one person was put in charge of room reservations, and unfortunately we were a room short upon arrival. Because I am a frequent visitor I volunteered to be the one to look for a room on such short notice. I went online to one of the travel sites that lets you bid on a room sight unseen. Reluctantly I chose one in the $120.00 range within walking distance of the group we were with. Lucky for me the hotel I bid/won was the Allerton. I need to tell you all the wonderful thing that will bring me back. Let first say I am a Palmer House fan,9 out of 10 times picking it as my hotel of choice. However, what a gem, and such a great location! Lobby is small, not a lot of sitting room, however lounge and restaurant (breakfast/lunch) were amazing. Excellent cocktails and the breakfast buffet (menu available) was exceptional, service was a 10 as well. Checkin was swift and even though I was reduced rate guest I requested my room be a queen not a full, and I was granted that request with no additional charge! Small room, but functional, wonderful bed with top of the line bedding. The comforter had double sheets, which I love, feather topped mattress and 6 pillows. Bathroom had a marble shower with a great shower head. Makeup mirror and very nice amenities. The room was very quiet and we slept well. You are 2 blocks from Water Tower, movie theaters, wonderful restaurants. I thought I would miss staying in the Loop but I found this to be really delightful. I used Spothero for parking and was able to park right next to the hotel for half the cost, and was thrilled with the end result! I will definitely be back. The only draw back I can think of is the elevators are small, 5 people at a time perhaps, so for luggage, packages it got a little tight. It is a hotel with a lot of character so we enjoyed the old world feel, a lot of history. If you love the Palmer you will love the Allerton. .
