My husband and I went to Chicago for a long weekend and stayed at the Millennium Knickerbocker. It is a great location just off of Magnificent Mile and about a 5 minute walk from the John Hancock Tower. The hotel is quite old but the rooms have been updated. The rooms are quite modern and sleek although fairly small - ok with us since we didn't spend much time in the room anyway. The main hotel décor is much more old/elegant - chandelier in the elevator! Staff were helpful and we were able to get late checkout free of charge. Overall I'd recommend this hotel to friends/family visiting Chicago.

This hotel was brilliant, central location in Chicago, easy to walk to many restaurants and bars. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We were there during the World Cup and the bar had themed specials on for food and alcohol for each game which was fun.
The restaurant is only open for breakfast and there is no room service however the bar has a small bar bites menu running. Not really an issue considering how many wonderful restaurants are close.
Room was lovely and clean, free wifi in lobby and bar area.

We had a wonderful trip to Chicago and couldn't have picked a better location. The hotel is just off the Magnificent Mile so terrific shopping was right at hand as well as so many first class restaurants in the Chicago north side neighborhood. The staff were very kind, especially Charlie our doorman who always had a big smile for us; he was incredibly welcoming and fun.

This place is excellent and I would recommend to anyone. The restaurant, bar, lobby and rooms were all clean and well maintained. The staff were all very friendly and courteous. The location is fantastic.

Instead of paying $65/night to park our car w/a valet at the hotel, we parked in a public garage at Orleans & Hubbard and paid $28/night. We didn't mind and for a difference of almost $40/night, we didn't mind the extra walk as we walked all around during our stay.

The hotel is in a great location and the room is modernized style and clean. The only issue is some staff may not be very helpful with their duty which includes concierge who does not have answers on several tourist questions, bell man who does not open the door but standing next to the door that you need to be careful while pushing open it. We got a promotion deal which we are not expect high quality service. But to the people who pay regular price, you may want to be prepared that the hotel service may short of your money.

We spend 4 nights at the hotel. I'm rating as an excellent hotel because of its location (close to Michigan ave. and easy access to the lake front boardwalk and beaches). It was quite at night even with the windows open! Room was clean, bed comfortable, with commodities such as air dryer, coffee maker, safe and nice rain shower! :)
I would recommand to all my friends that visit Chicago.
