Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 15, 2007

We only stayed for one night, but I love the Hotel Burnham. The room was beautiful and very clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly, perhaps the quickest check in and check out I've ever experienced. The location is great, especially if you take my advice and go see Wicked. It is only a block away.

Unique Quality: They have a restaurant that looks great. We didn't have time to try it, or the complimentary wine reception, but everyone we passed seemed to enjoy it. Next trip we may stay here again, and make time to try it.

Directions: If you are coming from O'Hare the blue line takes you there, about a block away.

Vintage Hotel in the Loop

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 12, 2004

The Hotel Burnham under went a major facelift a few years ago. It's a small, vintage "boutique" hotel in the heart of the Loop. The rooms are small but well furnished and decorated. And the architecture and building history are facinating. The hotel is a unique mix of vintage charm and contemporary style. If you like smaller hotels with personality this one's for you. It's not far from the Art Institute, Marshall Fields and the Loop Theatres. Public transportation is easily accessed too. The only problem with staying in the Loop is that it tends to die down in the evenings and on the weekends. They are trying to revive the nightlife in the Loop, but I think that's a couple years off.

Unique Quality: The Hotel Burnham has been recently restored to show off some of the original architecture and is gorgeous. They have complementary wine near the fireplace in the (very small) lobby in the afternoons. And the hotel restaurant, Cafe Atwood, is very good, but fills up quickly so reservations are recommended.

Sleep in an architectural landmark:)

This is named after the building's architect -- it was the old Reliance Office Building. The halls maintain that office feel -- the elevators are period also [although automated:)]

Unique Quality: The Burnham is a lovely boutique hotel -- sometimes you can get good deals, but it still is rather pricey. It is in "The Loop" rather than near the Michigan Ave shopping -- we like the location for the nearby Art Institute and the even nearer State St. shopping at the Marshall Fields and Carson Pirie Scott flagship stores.
.
The Atwood Cafe is in the lobby -- see my restaurant page.

Directions: corner of Washington & State Sts.
