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.

Great quick Chicago trip!

This is my fourth sty at the Burham. Love this hotel, it feels like home when I arrive, even some of the staff remember me from my previous stay! It is a great location, close to the loop. Love the small size and the ambience. Restaurant is great for breakfast, haven't had any other meals here yet.

Beautifully designed hotel in a great location. Bed was comfortable and room was pleasant but lacked comfortable seating. Housekeeping staff was mediocre but front dest was helpful and friendly. Noise from nearby el was bothersome.

Great location!

The hotel was in a fabulous location, right across from the amphitheater and art museum, near shopping, and within easy walking distance of a lot of great sights. The staff was very nice, and offered good advice on places to eat and visit. The room was clean and very nice, although a very basic one queen room. Excellent value though, as the price was within my budget.

Great weekend retreat

We were in town celebrating my wife's birthday and had an amazing time. The staff were nice enough to surprise us with two delicious cupcakes! Hotel is withing walking distance to much of what Chicago has to offer. Nice sized room was very clean. Although we did receive a 6am wake up call we didn't order, everything else was great. VERY friendly staff willing to help with every detail.

Fantastic!

The hotel is right downtown in a great location. Very friendly and welcoming staff. The metro blue and red just steps away. We had a great View including Trump Tower. Loved it!

Really Nice Hotel

Location is awesome if you want to be near the Loop (Millennium Park) and a nice walk (or $6 cab ride) from everything else that might interest you - touristy, shopping, restaurants. The room was very clean and nice... a little old but nice none-the-less. The front desk staff was very kind, however every time we asked them about a place to grab a bite (we wanted to be like locals) they kept suggesting restaurants that they had partnered with for appetizer discounts. The housekeepers change daily and I'm sure they appreciate tips. Valet Parking was $50 per day and it takes them 20 minutes to fetch the car (they park it in a lot down the street). If you're staying for 5 days or so, the parking isn't worth it unless you're driving far out of town often. Even though it's pet friendly, my allergies never acted up and the room or hotel never smelled like cats or dogs.

Caffe Baci is just down Washington on North Michigan. For around $10 per person you can have an awesome breakfast with the best authentic Cafe Latte nearby (I don't consider Starbucks authentic). We went there every morning. They're very friendly.

Cozy Weekend Retreat with Access

The room was small for the price but the quality was top notch every detail of this renovated office was done to perfection. The breakfast in the lobby restaurant the atwood cafe was amazing and very reasonable price for the quality. With walgreens next door and the heart of chicago out the door everything needed is only a walk away. Loved the bed and pillows.

Perfect location, great hotel and hospitality!!!

The hotel is much more than I was expecting and the location is unbelievable and public transportation gets you anywhere. Just one subway ride from the O'Hare airport!!! The rooms were very comfortable and the staff was amazing.
