      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Burnham - A Kimpton Hotel Chicago

      Wonderful little getaway


      We were first-time visitors to Chicago for a wedding in mid-July and booked our stay at the Hotel Burnham mainly due to the great reviews.

      It was even better than we hoped! The hotel, while small, has a wonderful "funky-hip-elegant" thing going for it. The staff was extremely helpful and the complimentary evening wine and morning coffee service was a real treat. The other couples in the wedding party stayed at one of the "bigger" hotels a few blocks away, but wished they had follwed our lead! We will definitely make more getaway plans for Chicago and the Hotel Burnham.

      Love the conceirge


      This was the best experience of my life. If it had not been for Tracy Alexander and John Cotter, I would have never gotten a ticket to the OPRAH'S FAVORTIE THINGS show. The two went out of their way to get me a ticket to any show. Let alone "The Show". It was a last minute deal, but they pulled it off! Tracy got us tickets and had no idea what show we were going to. The look in her eyes when we got back to the Hotel to tell her we were at the "Show" was worth a million. She really did her job. They really went out of their way to accomadate us an BOY did they! I not only loved our suite, and the cafe, the Oprah thing, I loved the history of this place, the ATWOOD CAFE , its so beautiful. I was in awe of the whole trip and I will not even consider checking into anoteher place before checking with the staff here first. This is a five star staff.

      Hotel Burnham is perfect


      We stayed at the Hotel Burnham over July 4th weekend. It is in a great

      location in the loop, across the street from Marshall Fields. There are

      free trolleys that stop at MF to get on and off for visiting major

      attractions. It was so easy to get around and lots of good places to

      eat. We went to the Taste of Chicago, saw the best fireworks display

      ever.The streets are clean, people are friendly and there is so much to

      do and see. I thought I loved NY but now Chicago is my kind of PLace!!

      The hotel is awesome, the conceirges and staff were wonderful!!! Free

      wine every evening in the hotel lobby and a great restaurant is next to

      the lobby.



      The hotel is amazing. Very cozy and in the heart of everything. The staff was very nice. Wonderful place to stay.

      Unique and Inviting


      I had a wonderful stay at the Burnham. The staff was very friendly and helpful, always attentive. Enjoyed staying in a boutique hotel instead of an impersonal, large hotel. Would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a unique experience.

      Wonderful, romantic


      A wonderful weekend romantic getaway. Great views. My wife loved it.

      Burnham Ambience


      What a unique and wonderful hotel. Our suite on the 14th floor overlooked the theater district, Marshall Fields, the Hancock Towner and Lake Michigan through huge picture windows. The location is fantastic, close to public transportation, and accessible via foot to everything in the city. The architectural integrity of the historic skyscraper buidling has been retained throughout and is not at all "kitschy." The room had a CD player, free high speed internet access and neat toiletries. Even the restuarant was good (if a bit pricey). Highly recommended for those who are tired of the big chains, but still want all the amenities.

      Wonderful winter weekend at Hotel Burnham


      My husband and I just spent a wonderful weekend at Hotel Burhnam. Service was impeccable, from the kindness of the doorman who took our car when we arrived, cold, tired and frazzled from the snow and rush hour traffic, to the thoughtful desk clerk who promptly poured us each a glass of wine and directed us to the fireplace in the lobby. A birthday card and small gift awaited us in our room, which had a nice view of the park (as requested) and was small but immaculately clean and cozy. Heavy cut glasses, wine glasses, a CD player, and quality toiletries were pleasant surprises. Our request for our car was handled promptly in the morning while we sipped complimentary coffee. When we returned Saturday evening and expressed disappointment at missing the wine social by a matter of moments, the clerk asked our room number and shortly thereafter personally delivered a full bottle of wine to our room! Breakfast in the Atwood Cafe Sunday morning was pricey but excellent, just the perfect splurge for a Groundhog Day birthday! The architecture of the hotel is spectacular and its location, within walking distance of a number of good restaurants, was perfect for our needs. We hadn't been in Chicago in 16 years and if we ever return, we will stay again at Hotel Burnham. It was warm and inviting and its staff gets our compliments and thanks.

      Satisfactory for the Money


      Good location, good restaurant, good value. Decent but not stellar service. Intimate, sometimes crowded lobby. This rooms in this hotel are pleasant but small. We were four ladies to a room, which was too crowded. It would be adequate for two. The beds were extremely comfortable and the decor classy, but the only mirror was in the bathroom. Also, we had to call three times to have a fourth set of towels brought up. Get a room on a higher floor to avoid street noise.

      Hotel Burnham a Great Deal


      The Hotel Burnham was worth every penny. The cost is reasonable for the area and the accomodations are great. It is a recently renovated historical building. I recommend checking out the website for fun. The location is sits on State & Washington directly across the street from the entrance to Marshall Fields and is withing walking distance of everything. The hotel is rather small so the service is great too. I would stay there every time if rooms were available.

      When we were out on Sunday we saw a few smartly dressed people in their $20,000 fur coats and clean boots.

      So, this morning we spent an hour looking for a Post Office. We couldn't find one, but it was a good excuse for a brisk walk, as Terry is really missing his early morning exercise. Caught a bus to the Chicago History Museum, and spent several hours learning more about this ...
