This boutique hotel was everything we needed for our short one night stay in Chicago. We were only staying for the night and heading out in the early morning so we really didn't have too much time to spare. But we wanted to stay in the city instead of near the airport so we can go to Millennium Park. The hotel was a perfect fit for us because the location of this hotel was walking distance to Millennium Park so we had enough time to go to the park before going back to Midway Airport.
We arrived at the hotel around 1am and were exhausted. The hotel outside area was really dark but luckily our cab driver new exactly where it was. The lobby is nothing to boast about. It was very small so we were somewhat worried about how small our room was. The front desk was very helpful though and welcoming.
Our room (203) was on the second floor and in the corner. Once we entered, we were relieved how spacious it was. We stayed in Chicago in August 2010 at W City Center and REALLY hated how tiny of a room it was. Our room at the Hotel Burham had vaulted ceilings, very big windows. Our view was nothing special (the Old Navy Clothing store) but it was nice that it was a view at least. My only complaint was that the bathroom bathtub was really small but you can't have it all.
Overall, I would completely recommend this hotel. It's a boutique hotel and got everything I needed (they also have free coffee and tea in the morning in the lobby). The room and staff are great. Also, I got my hotel deal through SniqueAway so pretty reasonable in price and I have Kimpton In-touch membership (free to join) so I got free internet. I definitely want to come back to this hotel when in the area!
