My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Burnham during his birthday trip to Chicago, and I cannot say enough about the property and its location and staff. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown, across the street from Macy's/Marshall Fields and easily accessible to multiple forms of public transportation. We loved the history of the building, and...

This was my first stay at this Kimpton property, and, although I was only in Chicago for one night, it was spectaculat highlight of our journey. This historic architecture of the building was retained during its renovation and the rooms were simply beautiful with great views of the city.

I have never been disappointed when staying at Hotel Burnham. I feel myself relax as I enter the doors knowing that I'm going to be treated like family--better than family. From the comfortable rooms to the "wine hour" to the door man who always greets you with a smile--it all makes for a wonderful stay.

I have stayed at several Kimptons and they have all been simply amazing. This one is in a historic building that boasts some amazing architecture. They have a hosted wine hour every night (all Kimptons do this) where you can enjoy a complementary glass (or two, or three...). I usually miss these because I'm out and about being touristy, but...

Each time I've stayed at a Kimpton Hotel I've had a great experience. This was no exception. The rooms were spacious and clean, and our view (in room 905) was fantastic.

We stayed here overnight to be in the Loop for a race that took place the next morning (Shamrock Shuffle). The hotel is a lovely boutique hotel with many vintage touches, including the elevators, which have some metal grates reminiscent of the original elevator doors. We had a charming room on the 12th floor, which provided a good city view....

I'm an architecture buff, so the first thing that attracted me to the Burnham was the fact it was a renovated 1890s office building that was a landmark in office construction (architects Burnham and Root.) What keeps me coming back is the quality, service, amenities, and location, all for a reasonable price. The room decorating is unique, different from the...
