The belle of Chicago's theater district
When Broadway shows comes to town, the 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 Allegro Chicago, a Kimpton Hotel 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 Allegro Chicago, a Kimpton Hotel 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.

A good value--and really wired!

The hotel was updated since we last stayed there and was attractive and comfortable except for a couple of factors: 1) there were no robes as in other Kimpton hotels we've stayed in; 2) it was difficult to cool down the room temperature to a comfortable level; 3) there were no additional light blankets for the bed and the comforter was too warm for the room. The bathroom was small but nicely updated with an excellent shower. This hotel is in a good location for those attending theater functions. No coffee pots in the room was a negative from our perspective but a quality coffee shop was easily accessible from the ground floor without going outside. We would stay here again but would definitely request several things ahead of time.

very nice

Nice hotel and nice decor. I would have liked a chair other than the desk chair; one that I could sit in comfortably to read. I would have also liked an in room coffee maker. The shower temperature regulator worked the wrong way--you turned to cold to get hot water. Access to the theater and opera were good and that was the reason for the visit to Chicago.

Good but not great

Booked this hotel due to price, location, and mostly for its reputation as a pet friendly hotel. The hotel is very nice but the room was very small and the bathroom was almost impossibly small. Besides allowing pets to stay there, we didn't feel they offered any above and beyond let amenities. Overall good but not great stay.

Romantic Valentine's Getaway

The location of this hotel is excellent near great restaurants. From the valet experience to check-out the staff were welcoming and of great assistance. The decor is modern and fun. The beds super comfortable. The complementary wine hour was great. Overall, it was an excellent experience and will stay again.

Perfect for Opera

This is the third time I have stayed at the Allegro for a visit to the Opera. It is perfect. Just five blocks away from the Lyric Opera.The staff are great, directions, things to do, and a safety pin for a button on my coat. The 312 restaurant has reasonably good food, and an excellent staff.

Great place, very reasonably priced

I love Chicago, and this was for the money the best place I have stayed. The staff was great, I went to Restaurant 312 and it was reasonably priced. Walking distance from most things and cab by others. Highly recommend it. Geo

Ordinary for a four star

The room was very small, and the "luxury" bathroom was absolutely tiny! I expected more for the price. On the positive side: great location, nice lobby with free wine and beer from 5-6pm, helpful staff, and pet friendly.

Time for an upgrade

At the cost they charge per room, the beds should be higher quality. One side was extremely worn out while the other had hardly been used, making for a very lopsided bed and uncomfortable sleep.
