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.

Comfort, location, and support

A gracious and elegant hotel in a prime location - upper Loop, but away from the L (unlike the Silversmith, an otherwise similarly nice hotel). Service & Atwood restaurant are great. Rooms are poshly furnished but otherwise simple - not tarted up with loads of pretentious 'features', pillows, etc. that acdtually get in the way. While not cheap, worth the value. Only regret is the $12 charge for WiFi - even in the lobby - sometimes you just need that 5 min. and don't want to schlep over to the Cafe.

A good stay, but they need to change mattress covers!

My wife and I stayed here just the one night as we wanted to stay downtown for a visit to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (4 blocks South). We enjoyed the stay, the decor of the hotel was full retro of interest which my wife loved and we ate dinner and then brunch at Atwoods restaurant located adjacent to the lobby. Our only real criticism was that the mattress cover beneath the cotton sheets made itself known too much with the sound of crinkling plastic and hotspots that became uncomfortable. This is a dog friendly hotel...we speculated that the mattress cover is heavy duty to protect against canine accidents!

a great experience

From the moment of pulling up to the hotel, to driving away, the staff was engaging and guest focused. Everything was done to insure an excellent stay. The conversion from iconic office building to hotel preserved the feel and details of a ground breaking builidng of the past while providing excellent comfort and ease. We were just blown away by the experience.

Incredible little boutique style in the heart of the Loop!

Even with a late arrival, the staff at the Burnham were outstanding! Lovely room with interesting accents and rich with architecture and history. Wine hour Monday evening was a nice bonus (might up the wine quality but hey it was free!!)...overall a well priced stay in a non- cookie cutter property that had charm and outstanding service levels!

Excellent Stay

Like other Kimpton properties I've stayed at, a top notch, hassle free stay. Only there for one night, but everything was great: quick check-in, clean, quiet room, and very friendly and helpful staff.

Better Then Expected - In Fact Fantastic!

What a beautiful designed place. The room was beautifully designed and very cozy. The lobby was small,but its beauty made up for it. Yes, you aren't going to spend the day in the hotel, but what time you spend there is extremely pleasant. Loved the complimentary wine hour! The Atwood Cafe located in the hotel, was a bit on the expensive side. Well, that's the way it is when you get quality. Food was excellent! The staff was great too. Folks at the desk, at least those on duty while I was there, were friendly and helpful at every turn. Location is great is you aren't driving. You can get easily pretty much everywhere from the Loop. I'll be staying there again on my next trip to Chicago.

Experience

It was very good, my grandson and I stayed at the Burnham because of it's location and it was marvelous, We went to the theater, shopping and site seeing . Most of the staff was above the call of duty, some of the women at the front desk were somewhat un attentive during the evening hours, Housekeeping and doormen were excellent. On Saturday the20th of July the desk person was fabulous, he was male and it was in the AM , I regret I did not get his name. I will certainly be going back to this hotel on my next visit to Chicago.
