    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Amilcar Barcelona

    Better than Home

    from

    We had a lovely stay at the Knickerbocker. The staff was helpfull and friendly. Room was clean and nicely appointed. Convieniently located on the magnificant mile we had a short walk to shopping or bus to see the attractions. The hotel even gave us complimentary cocktails since it was our honeymoon! We dont drink alcohol but the bartender was very nice and made me a great virgin strawberry margeritta. The gentleman who played the paino at the bar was wonderful and we enjoyed our stay very much. Thank You Millennium Knickerbocker!

    Millenium Knickerbocker

    from

    We stayed at the Knickerbocker on August 21 and 22, 2003. Having read reviews posted to this site in advance, we were not sure what to expect. From arrival to our departure, every employee we encountered was exceptionally courteous and appeared genuinely happy to have us. The room was smaller than expected for a double, but gleefully decorated. We felt like we were in a brothel! The beds were very comfortable, the rooms quiet, there was a coffeemaker, blow dryer, and complimentary USA Today. The location was perfect, right on the Miracle Mile, a block from the Hancock Tower. Valet parking was $35 per day and was a shock, however we had read about this in another posting and were prepared for it. Our room was obtained online and was only $79 for a double, so we really didn't mind the valet cost. We would stay here again - just for the location and comfortable beds alone!!

    Not again here either

    from

    Service was subpar. There were problems with the hotel rooms -- bathtubs that were clogged, broken doors. Flow between meeting rooms was awful. The only plus I see is the location. This hotel otherwise is overrated by AAA and the reviewers below.

    Never Again

    from

    Rude, rude, rude! We stayed here on July 4th weekend. We drove from Michigan, we called customer service to get directions from I-95 w/c is a major highway to Chicago-- calling them from a cellphone, telling them we're in a middle of a storm and that we're lost....we were put on hold, forwarded to another person who did not know how to get to the hotel and we were on hold again. Giving up we decided to just exit the highway and try our luck at a 7-11 store. When we finally arrived at the hotel at 2 am no one was there to take care of our car so we looked for parking ourselves. Checking in we were not greeted by anyone, even the receptionist did not greet us!! no welcome to the knickerbocker, nothing! The man at the reception was rude, which makes me think what kind of customer service training this hotel has. The guy could not find our reservation and he seemed frustrated that we are checking-in at 2 am!! Well if they were able to give us directions maybe we would have been there 2 hours earlier. The room is not even spectacular, very small, probably a little bigger than a walk-in closet. Stay here at your own risk.

    Not Again

    from

    The hotel lost our reservations and then couldin't accommodate what we needed. they gave us a room much smaller than we needed and when we requested something diffrerent they were unable to fulfill our request.

    we opted to leave the hotel and after there mistake of losing our reservations, they still charged us an early check out fee. If it wasn't for the great location of the hotel, there would be nothing positive to say/

    Fantastic!

    from

    Fantastic. Secured a room here through priceline, and what a bargain. Just off the Magnificent Mile, around the corner from the John Hancock Observatory. Room was beautifully decorated, if a little small. There were, however, two double beds which took up a fair amount of room. CD-player was in the room, as was the normal coffee maker, etc. Morning USA Today paper was gratefully accepted!Thanks

    I Can't Wait To Return

    from

    I was guest at the hotel from May 16th -May 18th, the service received was excellent. From the valet parking (Arrid), Night front desk person (Wayne) to the remarkable Concierge (Pyne). My stay there was unforgetable. The Millennium will always be my home away from home.Sincerely, Sharon Evans Room 302

    Great Hotel

    from

    Just got back from the Windy City, had a Great Time the Knickerbocker hotel was great the people that work at the hotel were also wonderful.

    Great place to stay.

    from

    I just got from one of the best vacation experiences.I got an excellent price on the hotel off of an online service. About 1/3 of what I have been seeing. Valet is kind of spendy at $32 a day.Wish there was a pool or hot tub. Because the hotel is right in the shopping district, my feet were hurting. Walked all over town. Not that there isn't alternatives. El train is within walking distance. Cabs everywhere. Buses everywhere. Even saw horse drawn buggies.I can't say enough good things about this place. I loved it.

    Quaint and homey with a must-have location

    from

    Just got back from a short trip to Chicago. For my first time in the Windy City, I wanted a hotel on the Magnificent Mile, and not too expensive (I got a deal on Lodging.com for $109/night for this 4 star hotel). The Millennium Knickerbocker was perfect under these criteria. The hotel is on the North end of Michigan Avenue, directly across Walton Place from The Drake, and only a block to the running/cycling/bike path on Lake Michigan. So, a fantastic location. Yes, the rooms were small and, yes, the bathrooms were even smaller, but they were completely functional. For those going to Chicago to see the city and not hole up in their room the entire time, this hotel was great. The rooms are not glamourous and some of the decor even seems a bit thrown together, but everything is clean and sanitary. Bring your own shampoo/conditioner/soap though...the stuff they provide isn't so great. The service was first-rate however, especially that of the concierge. Whenever we inquired about the location of a certain restaurant or a boat tour, instead of merely pointing us in the right direction, he gave us priority passes with which we could avoid lines. Though the next time I visit the Windy City, I'll probably try another hotel, the Millennium Knickerbocker was terrific for a first-time trip.

    After the gym we got ready and made our way down for brekki.

    We were served by Andre who was so polite and helpful and he took our order (eggs easy). The food was delicious. Mark helped himself to some of the buffet. He was almost dribbling!!

    We then took ourselves to our room to pack our things and check out.

    After a fab nights sleep we made our way to the airport and had a lovely chill in the No1 lounge at Heathrow. We noshed a bit of brekki and grabbed a few bits before boarding.
    There were a few very young babies sat near us. Thankfully they were only grizzly through points of the flight with no major wailing.

    Today was the day for our trip to Wrigley Field to catch a Cubs baseball game. Although it was not predicted to rain, it was quite windy and cold when we arrived at Wrigleyville.
    So much so, that I bought an overpriced hoodie to help stay warm. It does have the Wrigley name on it.
    We rode the Green Line to the Loop and transferred to the Red line there. The Green line in an elevated train, ...

The Navy Pier was a fantastic place for a bite to eat, a spot of touristy shopping and to see the fireworks that are set off every Wednesday and Saturday tonight from a barge in Lake Michigan, during the summer. It seemed quite the tourist attraction as the waits for dinner at all the ...
