Overview

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 value, perfect location

Would recommend Sat, Dec 19, 2015
If you're looking to spend some time in the Loop, go for the Burnham! Prices are generally good, if you can find a deal. The building has a lot of character and exhales the Chicago vibe. Staff is always attentive and friendly. Make sure to stop at Atwood downstairs for great cocktails and good food! Only con for me is the fact that you gotta pay for internet.. when even your corner coffee shop gives you free wi-fi!!

There are better hotels in Chicago

Would not recommend Tue, Oct 6, 2015
The building is beautifully ornate. For the price and location, there are better hotels in Chicago. The shower is uncomfortable slim, one had to bend their ankles or stand sideways to be in the shower. The happy hour is limited to two cheap California wines. Their tv channel selection is very limited. Holiday Inn's have more choices. No idea why this hotel was rated highly USA today and World Reports.

Great location, great hotel!

Would recommend Tue, Jun 23, 2015
We loved this boutique hotel in the heart of Chicago. The hotels been recently renovated, keeping the architectural features (great mosaic floors, iron grillwork and old wood trim) while bringing in a modern feel. The rooms weren't large but were very comfortable. The staff were so pleasant and helpful. Especially loved the feather pillows (optional) and wine at happy hour (not optional!).

Best location fantastic hotel

Would recommend Sun, Jun 21, 2015
We've stayed here a few times and the hotel never disappoints us with its high service standard. It offers afternoon wine aperitifs and lovely service. The front desk is always helpful and friendly directing us to shows and good restaurants. The location is the best in town and is steps away from Nordstroms, Abercrombie and other major retailers and a block away from the Oriental and Chicago theaters.

Perfect location

Would recommend Tue, Jan 6, 2015
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

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.

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.
