We travelled for a short stay in Chicago, Nov.15-18, 2012. I am retired, but my wife had meetings with a professional group in the city. We stayed at the Hotel Burnham. We had stayed in different areas of Chicago on previous visits, and every area has it's own highlights nearby. We were across the corner from what was Marshall Field,...

Have been trying to stay here for awhile and finally decided to drive up in the winter when rates are a bit lower. What a triumph. This architectural masterpiece was fantastic.

Wanted to do something different/special this trip into Chicago, and the Hotel Burnham was just that. Upgraded to an outstanding suite on the top floor, one of the nicest rooms we have ever had. Staff was attentive, providing a humidifier, and champagne to acknowledge our event. A bit pricey, but well worth it for a special occasion.

On first impressions I was wowed by this hotel, it is a beautiful old building with lots of art deco features throughout. The lobbies, lifts and even the room doors were lovely hints of art deco style. The bed was very comfortable and the room pleasant and clean. The location is just perfect too, walking distance to the Arts Institute,...

I love me a great Kimpton hotel, and this one did not disappoint.

I was given great walking directions and some impressive dining recommendations. The room...

Just love the Burnham! It is historic, architecturally interesting, intimate and well-located. Of particular note -- the Burnham is staffed by people who make your experience both enjoyable and memorable. Great recommendations for sight-seeing.

This hotel looks after its guests. I found the service to be excellent, the quality of the room to be good. The bathroom was a bit dated: still a bath tub (too small to lie in), when will they get good walk in showers). Breakfast was excellent and served well. The dinner card provided ample choice of delightful food.
