We've been to Chicago many times and never noticed the Burnham....it is hidden in plain view on the corner of State and Washington, which is one its many charms. Our room was small but not cramped, and was immaculately clean and beautifully furnished. The staff was very friendly and genuine....no pretense here! We especially liked Jean Luc, who was so helpful and kind.
Breakfast was wonderful and make us wish we'd made reservations for dinner. We wish the bar was larger....it was too small to seat more than 10 people and there was no standing room. We wondered why they didn't expand the bar into the corridor where the State Street entrance is located, since they discourage the use of this doorway, anyway....But the lobby and fireplace was a great spot to sip a drink, so in the long run, it didn't matter.
The Burnham is the perfect location if you're in Chicago for theatre (less than two blocks from the Chicago Theatre, which was the reason for our visit), shopping or museums. We will stay at the Burnham on future visits.....it is the best!
