I wasn't sure about this place reading the reviews and seeing the affordable price on Expedia, but decided to try it since it was convenient to my office and I was intrigued by the layout and mystery. Others said it's hard to find. It's not. Just easier to find on foot than by car. Is it a traditional hotel with...

I had a wonderful stay at The Buckingham Hotel. It was very cozy and romantic, and it also had great amenities so that I could stay healthy when away. I loved the gym. It was fully equipped with really modern machines, and there were tons of classes to choose from! I really liked bootcamp! It was also nice to unwind...

Loved the Buckingham Club. It was on the 40th floor of the Chicago Stock Exchange so the views were stunning. The room was clean, the staff helpful and the breakfast was great. Absolutely no complaints and many compliments.

I enjoyed my stay here. It seems like an office building and they converted the 40th floor into a hotel. The view is amazing from 40th floor!. Rooms are dated but maintained well. The mattress seems to be pretty old and need replacement. It wasn't a satisfying sleep.They give complimentary breakfast but it is probably worst breakfast I've ever saw...

We searched long and hard for a nice hotel with a reasonable rate. Located on top of an admin high rise this hotel only has 20 or so rooms. Check in is far from normal as the front desk in the lobby does this task. No fear as the staff were great to deal with. We arrived at 1000pm on...
