“Great location! ”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

We checked into this hotel July 3rd and checked out on the 6th. The purpose of our visit was to attend a concert at the Northerly Island.
I booked this hotel on Jetsetter months before, the location was perfect for our stay and we got a good price. We paid $150 per night, and it was well worth it, our room was 1809 the room had a king size bed, it was small, but it was clean. There are ice machines on each floor, I traveled with a small cooler, there is a Walgreen right down the street, which was perfect to stock up on snacks and drinks.
The elevators are small but this is an old hotel and you send no time in the room so it isn't and isssue. The bed was comfy, clean, and room service did a good job. The staff was courteous and very helpful. We did not eat or drink at the hotel. I would not hesitate to stay there again or recommend this hotel.

The Allerton is a vintage Chicago hotel in the river north area of bustling Michigan Ave. Recently acquired by another hotel group, it's now the Warwick Allerton which is helpful to know when giving taxi drivers directions. The hotel is well maintained for it's age and decor. The location is excellent. The service was outstanding especially the manager who was very generous when attending to our needs. The rooms were a decent size, a little oddly laid out. There is a hospital nearby so you will hear ambulances from time to time.

Room Tip: Higher floors and floors away from the hospital side are quieter.

This hotel worked out well for me because of the location. We flew into Midway and took the train into the city. There is a lot to do and see within walking distance. The Navy Pier is about a $6 cab ride away. The lobby is located on the 2nd floor. There is a restaurant and bar also in the 2nd floor. There is a gym although I saw no parts of it, I refuse to workout on vacation! The Concierge was very charming as he should be. The hotel is older but clean. The rooms are small and comfortable. We did not spend much time in the room anyway. Our flight was a few hours after check out so we were able to leave our bags with the hotel and explore the city a little more. There was no view in my room but who stays in a hotel to stare out of the window all day? I enjoyed my stay here and would recommended Warwick Allerton to friends and family.

Room Tip: Make sure your room is not directly across from the elevators. The hallway is very narrow so I can...

After reading several of the recent reviews, I was a little worried about the pre-paid stay I had booked a the Allerton. I knew the location would be great for the 4th of July (I'm from the suburbs) but I was traveling with my husband who travels extensively (he's very difficult to please) and my 3 children ages 3-14. We did have to pay an extra $25 to get 2 double beds which I wasn't thrilled about but apparently the standard room is a Full bed?! But it was apparently an upgrade to an Executive room. We got to the hotel early at 12:30 (check-in is at 4pm) and I assumed we would need them to hold our bags for a few hours but shockingly they had the room ready and we were able to do an early check-in. The room was updated, clean and roomy. Mind you this is an OLD hotel, not a new building so you need to remember that the rooms sizes, hallways, elevators, pretty much everything is smaller. That is normal for an old building. That aside, the linens and room were great. The location is perfectly situated in the middle of the Mag Mile near all the best shopping and restaurants and a short walk to Oak St Beach. The hotel staff was very accommodating. I ordered a blanket from housekeeping at 10:30pm on the 4th of July and it arrived in my room in under 10 mins. That is pretty much amazing considering patrons were filling the lobby and all it's elevators coming back from the fireworks. The only issue we had were some loud guests celebrating the 4th in a room next to ours but I heard hotel security go to the room and I never heard another peep. Even the door man went the extra mile to get us a voucher from another nearby hotel to save us the hassle of standing in line at a local restaurant. Definitely would stay here again!

At every angle someone is there to help you and be courteous and professional. True it has not pool but honestly did I really come to Chicago to swim indoors? There is so many walking opportunities and places to tuck into for food and shopping as well. I found a super spa called Renew Spa at 980 N Michigan. Loretta was an outstanding masseuse. Back at the hotel, Stephan was friendly and many staffers offer good tips for Chicago, such as getting breakfast just a few blocks east and south from Allerton at the West Egg.~ The porters and waiters were quick and friendly. We'll stop at the Allerton again on the next trip.

Room Tip: Just pay ahead online or call for specials. Advance pay is always cheaper.

Three friends and I enjoyed a weekend stay at the Allerton this past June. While not overly impressed with views, room size or complimentary amenities, we did have a great stay thanks to a wonderful location and a charming staff. We loved being just a short taxi ride from Union Station and took great advantage to our easy walking distance to shopping and dining. The staff treated us graciously making us feel like honored guests. Every service we requested was performed as if it were a personal pleasure rather than a duty. Being an older, smaller downtown hotel, the Allerton can not offer some of the flashier amenities of the newer places but it delivers on history, ambience and charm.

I got this hotel last through Hotwire. It was not identified as a boutique hotel--clearly a bait-and-switch because Hotwire identifies other boutique hotels as such when you're bidding. Allerton should do the right thing and identify itself on Hotwire as a boutique hotel. How small are the rooms? About half the size of a tiny college dorm room. The beds are just a little wider than a single but very short, a good fit for hobbits.

Room Tip: Tiny rooms. Avoid this hotel on Hotwire.
