My first ever TripAdvisor review.... A giant Crocheted Pineapple. A staff that makes you feel like a special family member. Eloquent. Grand. Sophisticated. Historical. Whimsical. Relaxing. Oh and the service....it was all amazing. But above all, it's the location. The location absolutely rocked! We were just a short stroll away from fine dining, parks, shopping, theater, historical points of interest,...

This was technically a business trip for 9 days , but did not feel like it at all! I felt so at home. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious . Location was perfect. Staying Pineapple is the only way to go. Highly recommend.

First time at this hotel. Staff was incredible. Absolutely incredible. Convenient location in the Theatre District. Rooms were very clean and the beds really comfortable. Will stay there again. Although we didn't bring our dogs, it is a pet friendly hotel, too.

I have stayed at this location when it was the Burnham... so this week I stayed for the first time under new ownership. Much of the comfort of the old was still present, but there were changes as well. As I entered the lobby, I smiled when I saw some of the original staff. Tabitha (front desk) is the best...

This hotel is in a great location if you want to do some shopping. It is across from the Macy's on State, next door to the Nordstrom rack, and many other stores that are all within walking distance. There is a dine in movie theater right across the street as well. The room we had was standard/small but very comfortable....

I booked this hotel when it was the Hotel Burnham before being acquired by Pineapple Hospitality. I initially chose it because of its unique history and the location near the theater district. We were going to see Hamilton! I was worried it might have lost some of its character with the change in ownership. I was wrong. Little touches like...

We were very pleased with the whole experience at the Alise! Perfect location for the theatre district - a 5 minute walk to Hamilton! Cozy rooms and every staff person was pleasant, genuine and helpful. Very walkable to shopping and dining. We had a package that included parking and the cost was very reasonable. Will definitely be back!

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
