The belle of Chicago's theater district
When Broadway shows comes to town, the Hotel Allegro Chicago, a Kimpton Hotel, is the first place that comes to mind for lodging. The Cadillac Palace Theater sparkles as brilliantly as its marquee with tasteful rooms in the heart of the Loop. Theatrical drama comes to life in every corner, including the lobby’s three-story staircase where a baby grand piano sits against a bright palette of reds, oranges and greens. Business travelers find its location equally attractive -- it’s just a few blocks from the Board of Trade and Mercantile Exchange.
Highlights
  • In the heart of the Loop near State Street, financial district and Magnificent Mile
  • Broadway shows on site at the Cadillac Palace Theater
  • Evening wine hours hosted in hotel’s living room
  • In-room spa services and Aveda bath products
  • Pet-friendly hotel
Rooms
Rooms at the Hotel Allegro Chicago are both glamorous and futuristic. Royal blue headboards pop against stark white linens and complement bursts of yellow color in the forms of lamp shades and bolsters. Rooms come standard with a 37-inch flat-screen TV, complimentary wireless Internet access and Aveda bath products.
Features
The Hotel Allegro Chicago may have been built in 1932, but its policies have evolved with modern times. Today, its green practices mean no plastic or Styrofoam cups are used, all meeting documents are printed on recycled paper and cleaning products are all eco-friendly.

Pet lovers, rejoice: This pet-friendly hotel has dedicated premier king guest rooms just for you and your four-legged friends. Pets are also welcomed with a treat plus food and water bowls to use during their stay.

Business trip with theater fun

The hotel is located in the Chicago Theater District - next door to the Cadillac Theater. There are several good restaurants in the area and easy access to shopping at the Michigan Avenue stores. We would stay there again.

Cool Hotel, Small Rooms

Hotel is very Modern and Hip. We enjoyed our stay. The staff was SUPER friendly and the hotel is in a great location. Easy to get to a lot of places. The rooms appear much bigger online than in person. The bathrooms are big enough to almost fit 1 person in them at a time.

Boutique Hotel

I've stayed at Kimpton Hotels before and this one didn't disappoint. It was a great boutique - not a chain - hotel. Great location - quiet but great atmosphere. Great restaurant attached also.

Convenient Stay

The service at this hotel is OUTSTANDING! This hotel is very clean. This hotel seems committed to pleasing the guests. Beds were comfortable. Room temperate. Location convenient. We had a regular room and it is a little tight on space. If you are a large person or have more than 2 people in your party, you may find the regular room rather small. However, it is an efficient room and the rest of the services makes up for the tight quarters. I would stay here again.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Garrett's FRESH made popcorn is only 4 doors down by turning left out of hotel. Walgreens, Dunkin Donut and a Corner Café is literally around the corner. Theater is NEXT door! We did not need a cab or transportation venue for 5 days of active visiting!

No closet? No dresser? Lost personal items=no thanks!

Beautiful lobby area and great location.Upon check-in, a bellman lost a personal item. No one seemed to know if I was to fill out a form, talk to a manager, or what. Also, room key didn't work and had to go down to front desk and wait in line to get it redone. Finally towards end of stay, a manager came to our room with a form I had to fill out. Upon check out, there was no note of the incident on my bill, and a 54$ dining charge which I didn't incur. I wasn't even in the hotel the date of the charge! They took the dining charge off, but really? Good and bad-, my King sized bed was in a tiny room, so small it didn't even have a dresser or a closet to store my clothes. (I had booked the room for a week- lots of clothes.) I asked if I could have a room with one, and luckily, one was found for me at no additional charge. No offer was made to move my bags to the new room, although I'm not sure I would have trusted them with anyone at that point. While this is all well and good, Why give me such an embarrassment of a room to begin with? I've stayed at everything from the red roof to the ritz, and for the price/experience/location, the room size was ridiculous. The second room still didn't have a dresser, but was doable. Hotels in older buildings typically have rooms on the small side, and Kimpton makes up for this often with other amenities, such as happy hour, and high end soaps, but my first room should be called an efficiency at best. Still waiting for the check on the personal item. I'll update my review at that time. But regardless, I won't be staying at a Kimpton hotel again.
