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.

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.

Free coffee provided in the morning and wine provided at 5pm. The fitness center is great even if its small but includes everything I want. Nice hotel! Strongly recommend!

Good Hotel

Very close to public transit, easy to get to the Metra train. Centrally located and near shopping and dining options. HUGE bonus! Wine hour every day from 5-6 (free!) also tea and coffee in the AM. Rooms were small, in need of some upgrading however they added funky wallpaper and art to distract from those issues. Bathroom was nice, very very small but it had everything you would really need. One downside is that they are pet friendly which means you can hear your neighbors dogs barking at night. That part, not so fun.

Allegro, Chicago

Location was great. Lots of interesting places within walking distance. Loved both the social hour and the morning quiet coffee time in the lobby. Restaurants inside the hotel were delicious, though a bit pricey. A little surprised at the small size of the hotel room. Decidedly not happy with the noise level in the next room. We called the front desk on that. They took care of it - but probably 45 minutes later.

Dining tip: In Hotel

312 - inside the hotel. A bit pricey, but the service is good, the food interesting, and you don't have to go back outside, which is important mid-winter.

Great proximity for going to the theater

The rooms are small but adequate. I had a room on the 19th floor and it had 2 small closets but no dresser. The nice thing about this hotel is that it is in the theater district and you can walk to all of the theaters in a very short time. Encore 312 is the restaurant attached to the hotel and while the food is good the service was slow.

The hotel is hip and trendy, love the decor, the location is close to most places. And Anthony the concierge is a rockstar if you want to go anywhere or do anything he is the man to see.
