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.

Hotel Allegro disaster

[...]The room was small--no 220 sq ft. There was no ice on our floor. Worst of all after our return at 11 pm there was a wild headbanging party at the end of the hall. After 2 1/2 hrs of dealing with his and obviously no hotel intervention I went to the desk and complained. They said they had gotten many complaints---well why didn't they do anything. Security finally went up and they still did not quiet down. We had to move at 1:30 am--then the room next door woke up at 7 am and talked and laughed so loudly we couldn't stand it. When we checked out I told the staff person who could not issue any credit because of prepaying. What a disasterous Valentine's Day celebration. This hotel does not have enough insulation or space

The Bad and the really ugly

The restaurant food was very expensive and not very good. The room were exceptionally small. there were no dressers in the room. No coffee pot or teas. The TV only had numbers you had to call the desk to find out where cbs and abc was. The clock radio you had to call the engineer to show you how to work it. I travel a lot and this and the holiday inn are my least favorite.

Dirty Cheap

Doorman did not realize we arrived... Valet was slow to take the car... Chekon gave me a room on a low floor when I asked for a high floor. Lobby looked cool in pictures but was cheap. Room and bathroom was filthy. Bad location.

not what I expected

Other than the decent rate and very helpful staff, there were few redeeming things about this hotel. Parking was $45 a day(in and out), the room was the size of a large closet, and the room decor was migraine inducing. Great example of good in theory, but terrible in reality.

Not recommended

A tired hotel, barley inside the "Loop". A 90 years old building (hotel?) with a lousy attempt of an out of date not recent modern renovation. Small rooms with very small bathrooms. Standard amenities such as coffee maker, shower cap.. are not provided in the room, you have to call the front desk to supply! Expensive parking off the premises ($51 per night). Except for the nice spacious lobby, this hotel should not be rates 4 Stars.

OK hotel w/ Small Rooms

The hotel was nice enough and the location is right in the heart of Chicago, but the room was small and the bed was just OK.

Just Okay

When pulling up to the Allegro I was shocked that the parking rate per day for a car was $50.00 a day! We normally do not have a car with us, so this was a HUGE shock! We just had come from South Bend/Notre Dame where the parking was $5.00 for the entire weekend! We have stayed at the Palarmo, another Kimpton property and LOVED it. Besides the free wine at 5:00 there wasn't anywhere in the hotel to get a cocktail earlier than 5. I would probably look elsewhere when booking another trip to Chicago.
