From the moment we arrived the staff were friendly and very helpful. In a great location close to everything. Lovely spacious rooms with extremely comfortable beds. Would definitely stay in this hotel again. Not forgetting to mention Sargon the doorman who was superb.

Dark, dingy, dilapidated dungeon. Proof that extensive renovation does not necessarily result in improvement in the guest experience. In past years, this was a really pleasant small hotel in a convenient location. No more.

We have been to downtown Chicago a few times, and have stayed in a different hotel each time. The Whitehall is a grand older hotel that is meticulously maintained. The room was well laid out, quiet, and comfortable. One of the best beds we've ever slept on in a hotel! Friendly staff, and always a friendly hello. It's a bit... More

A last minute internet booking turned out to be a real win, Provision of coffee or tea in the room would make it even better. Breakfast in the adjoining restaurant was great. Bed was the best I slept in during my 3 weeks of travel - pillow was perfect too which is often problematic - as good as home.

Excelent location and room size. Good service and i love Mai restaurant,delicious food. A kettle/coffee tea maker will be great in room although they offer complimentary coffee/tea in the lobby at breakfast time.

Overall good stay. But room service food selection could have been better. Size of room was on the small side but not unworkable. A happy hour would have brought guests together traveling alone together to meet one another would have been nice.

It is an ok hotel. The good thing is the location. The lake is two blocks away. There is also a ssupermarket close by. it is a little old so maybe that is why it is slightly cheaper than hotels nearby.

There are so many hotels in Chicago and you are spoilt for choice. I chose this hotel for its location and the fact it seemed more of a boutique hotel. All I can say is - FANTASTIC. The staff are fantastic and the bed is extremely comfy. The location is about a 2 minute walk to the Water Tower and... More

Great Boutique Hotel that is accommodating, inviting with great location. Comfortable Traditional Styled Rooms and Lounge area. Historical Building so rooms and elevators have smaller footprint than contemporary standards. Discounted Parking nearby. Free WiFi but slow. Shopping, Coffee, Dining Spots all nearby. Great experience and value for our stay.

The Whitehall is a real bargain in an A+ location. The rooms, bathrooms & public areas are in need of an upgrade, but it is quite comfortable as is. Wonderful breakfast in the dining room. Nice staff. It's a real bargain.

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighbourhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
