From Midway Airport mass transit (CTA - L Line) to the hotel could not have been easier. We did not want to stay on the Miracle Mile in Chicago but more in the arts and park and museum area of the city.
The Silversmith Hotel was a surprise and a treat. The building was designed by Burnham and has been restored to a very, very private accomodation hotel. No grand teas or open lobbies to the public streaming through here. At the same time, the lobby floor was enormous and lovely place to sit in relaxing chairs and sip fruit water while admiring the decor. You wouldn't be able to find the lobby if you were not headed to the hotel. Security is great. To access the upper floors you need a card. Every time we arrived, at least two security or staff were on hand to greet us.
Our room was immaculate, spacious and all designed in the Craftsman/Stickley/ Arts and Craft period with nice attention to detail. Large room with a sitting area lounge with refrigerator. Enormous bathroom for a hotel room. Plenty of storage and closet area.
Service was fine, not overly friendly. Just a nice welcome and any information you could need. Room service was prompt . Downstairs there are two options for dining, A restaurant deli for breakfast and a bar.
