Reviewed November 14, 2012

Beautiful over-sized room. Very clean and luxurious. I am used to staying in hotels in Chicago that are much more expensive and this was BY FAR a better deal. Will definitely stay there again!
The location is very understated, but is close to shopping and only about a mile from Water Tower square on the Magnificent Mile. I usually stay in the Palmer House Hilton and wanted to save money. I did not expect much, but was very surprised. It was an excellent experience.

We stayed here for a week and were impressed with the size of the room and the staff. Everyone was accommodating from the doormen to the desk personnel to housekeeping. The room was large and quiet even though the "L" runs right outside the front door. Not only that the price was right and the location is great, close to everything - Grant Park, Museums, Soldier Field, Michigan Avenue shopping, taxis, and as noted the L station is right outside.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Chicago for vacation. We come frequently and will definitely return here

Room Tip: The upgraded suites are great with more room

The Silversmith has great sized rooms with super comfortable beds. The staff is friendly, informative and a pleasure to interact with. The hotel is in the most perfect location- close to the CTA ('L') and in walking distance to great restaurants, shops and attractions. Definitely worth it and I recommend this hotel to anyone looking for quality, convenience and value!

My wife and I took a 4 day trip to Chicago and had the good fortune to stay at The Silversmith. We had a king bed room but upon our arrival were upgraded to a suite which gave us a little more room to unpack and get settled in. The hotel itself is right downtown, steps from the "L" and a block from Michigan Ave and Grant park. The location made trips to the Sears Tower (having lived in Chicago a number of years ago I refuse to call it the Willis Tower), Field Museum, Shedd, Art Institute, etc very easy to manage. The one downside was a very small exercise room, but when I come back this will be my first choice to stay.

Great location for the hot chocolate race in town. Beautiful decor of arts and crafts style. Wonderful service with staff that went out of their way to accommodate. When we checked in they upgraded our room and also threw in a premium air mattress for no extra charge. L train was not very loud at all. Location is so close to shopping! Right around the corner from Macy's and many affordable places to eat.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed in the Silversmith in September 12 and found the location excellent and the staff extreamly friendly. The room itself and the bathroom were large and clean. not much natural light in the bedroom, but this is expected in any city. The reception for the hotel is on the firt floor, so don't be surprised if the lobby seems quiet when you arrive.
The El is near the hotel, but we couldn't hear it in the building and it was convieniant for catching the train to watch the White Sox in the evening (a v easy train trip away). Also v easy to get to the Art Institute and the Willis Tower as well as any river cruise (we did the Architecture Foundation cruise, which was v well informed).
Would recommend and would stay again.
Tip: Visit the John Hancock building's observation area for sunset views of Chicago. The cost is the same as the Willis Tower, but you can get seats by the window if you arrive early enough and can settle down with some drinks whilst watching the lights come on - the was definitely one of my highlights and well worth the money.

This hotel has the best staff in chicago. They smile and welcome you every time you walk in the door! They helped us out with information about the city and even got me into a top hair stylist when I couldn't get my hair just right for my son's wedding. The rooms are spacious, well and spotless. They made us very comfortable and treated us as if we were their very own family. Thank you staff at the Silversmith for taking such wonderful care of us.

Room Tip: The King suites are fantastic
