The Hotel Burnham is rich in architecture history and the sense of romance fills the lobby up to the guestrooms. Located in the heart of Chicago on historic State St. the Hotel Burnham projects an atmosphere of historical and whimsy decorated to the hotels theme of architecture. Dark finished mahogany wood rich colored leathers and silk drapery unite to recreate the mens club feel that once occupied this space. Tumbled stone flooring in the entry lobby compliment the restored stone floor used in the original lobby. Windows feature incredible views of downtown Chicago and are draped in handsome blue velvet and tie back panels with samplings of Mozarts symphonies.

My stay at the Burnham was flawless. The entire staff was excellent and helpful without being overbearing. My room had a wonderful view of the city and included the famous vertical Chicago sign. The bar (evening) and restaurant (breakfast) was also pleasant. The surrounding area offers much to do.

Perfect location

Especially for first-time visitors to Chicago, it was exciting to stay in a landmark, architecturally significant building in a perfect location. Our room had a view of the old Marshall Field's and Carson Pirie Scott department stores (now Macy's and Target, respectively) and even a glimpse of Lake Michigan. That said, we felt that the fact that the hotel restaurant was closed for renovations ought to have been disclosed when we made our reservations. Also, the room was a bit shabby, with worn and (lightly) stained carpeting. Housekeeping improved after asking the (very polite and helpful) maid for more soap and drinking glasses. Although the nighttime desk clerk was surly, other staff were cheerful and obliging. All in all, a good experience primarily on the basis of location and price. When the restaurant reopens, it'll be better yet.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Make sure you pop in to the Macy's just across State Street from the Burnham. Although the merchandise is no more than you'd expect from the brand, the building survives as a historic department store. It retains impressive original stained glass, tile work and a walnut-paneled upper-floor dining room overlooking a balconied atrium. These features surviving from an earlier age make it well worth a visit.

Lovely place, excellent staff

The title says it all. It's also a perfect location to explore the city. The building preserves the feeling of old style quality and provides all the modern comforts one would expect. The staff provide excellent service with very human/personal touches. Our second time there. We will most definetly return.

Classic Kimpton

Loved the location and the comfortable feel of the hotel in a beautiful historic building. The rooms are a bit small, but had all of the amenities you would expect. An excellent value in Chicago!

The Burnham is directly across from the Chicago Macy's Flagship and in the heart of some of the best shopping in the City.

Great stay for a BUSY Weekend

Stayed at this hotel during Lollapalooza weekend and it couldn't have been better. It was central to the park, which made for an easy walk to and from the venue. It is also right next to the subway stop, which is great for getting around town, and to Wrigley Field. The staff was excellent and always had a smile on their faces. A nice escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, and the festival. Didn't notice the street noise too much, only some of the street performers later in the morning.

Just fine

It's nothing I would write home about. Service seemed forced and mildly condesending. The building is a beautiful deco building perfectly fit in Chicago, close to the cloud gate. It's nice but all in all I will forget about the place soon enough.

Just go to New York, or keep going to London. Why you'd ever shop in Chicago is beyond me.

One night stay

I came in for a Cubs game. Friends were staying at the hotel, so made sense for me to be there too. Usually stay up the street at a Marriott property on wife's points. Burnham was nicer. Also, great location to the L red line to Wrigley.

If you travel the red-line L, pay attention to which way to exit at Lake and which end of the train to be on.
