Had a great overnight stay here through a Travelzoo deal that included the Executive Room for one night, a lounge credit of $25.00, and two breakfasts for $99.00. The location was perfect..one half block east of N Michigan Avenue just north of the John Hancock building. The beds were comfy, and all needs were met during our stay. The morning's hotel bill, however, that was slid under the door, reflected additional charges of $77.00 (?), an additional $10.00 for an upgrade, and additional tax charges, which totaled nearly $100.00. A quick visit to the main desk downstairs resulted in the hotel correcting errors that they stated they had made due to coding of the stay having been improperly entered at time of reservation. They removed all additional charges except for the $7.00 in room taxes which I expected to pay. I didn't need the distress, but was happy they corrected it as I have two more evenings this summer with this same deal which is excellent!

Room Tip: I had asked for a high up, quiet room, and they obliged me...

Pros - (1) great location on East Walton across from The Drake Hotel, 2 short blocks from Water Tower Place, surrounded by Magnificent Mile shopping and restaurants; (2) rooms are clean and tastefully designed, quiet, with comfortable beds; (3) got a good price with a special offer on the website ($100-125 per room); (4) friendly helpful staff
Cons - (1) $65 per day valet parking (public parking around the block is $32 per day but no in and out privileges); (2) bathrooms small with sliding door that is not that private and overhead shower that is not easy to adjust; (3) breakfast service was slow; buffet is quick, of course, but lacking some standards (such as oatmeal, bagels, granola, bananas); (4) outdated computers in business office slow and prone to crash, even just printing boarding passes; (5) small exercise room had 6 treadmill/elliptical machines, small free weight area with one bench and a limited machine.

Spent two days in Chicago at one of the BEST hotels I have stayed in. This hotel was in a perfect location and had some of the nicest staff. Easy walking distance to the beach and to one of the largest shopping areas around. Parking was a little high but you are in Chicago! Breakfast was very good and awesome window seating. Thanks for an awesome trip!

Room Tip: Room 1216 had plenty of buildings surrounding the view...but you had a view of beach!

I brought my sister to Chicago for a girls weekend and we stayed at the Millennium near the Hancock Building. Great location with easy walking access to Michigan Ave as well as Lake Shore Blvd. The hotel is older but doesn't feel out of date. Room was small but nicely decorated. Beds were super comfortable and the rain shower head made the bathroom amazing. Pricy, but it was worth it. Would recommend using Priceline or Hotwire to get a better deal.

This was my first trip to Chicago and one of my travelling companions had so enjoyed her stay at Millenium Knickerbocker Hotel last year that we all decided to stay here this time. The hotel is well situated near the lakefront and CBD so venturing out was easy. The rooms are well appointed with very comfy beds and bathrooms. The staff made us feel welcome and assisted us very ably to find tour information, taxis etc. The lobby bar was well-stocked and we were able to wind down after our busy days with a delicious cocktail. In all the Millenium Knickerbocker gave a great introduction to Chicago - there were only a couple of points that disappointed. Firstly, there was no free wi-fi which was a bit of a nuisance and seems a bit behind the times. Also, the rooms were equipped with a touch-screen PC which was meant to provide information about nearby attractions. I found this a bit bewildering to use and rather limited in scope, but I imagine this is a work in progress. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
