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.

Excellent Loop Location

The Burnham is one block from the Daley Center in the heart of the Loop. This is a great spot for the business traveler. It has the hallmarks of Kimpton hotels: small, well-appointed room; very cool public areas; sharp bar and restaurant. My only beef was the construction. There will be a superstop from both airports, though; so the convenience of the Burnham will be even better when they are done.

If you don't want a $25 cab drive from Midway, train stops are 2-3 blocks away. Look for coming front-door subway stop.

Great Hotel

My significant other and I stayed here this past weekend and had a wonderful visit. The rooms have tasteful decorations and adequate room to move about and stow luggage. The service / concierge offered appropriate helpful dining suggestions and walking directions. The rooms were immaculate and the turndown service is a nice touch. Hotel Burnham, in some ways is a destination in itself. Definitely recommended.

An historic presence

It was a bit of history.. quiet elegance with velvet and satin duvet,heavy drapes and granite bathroom counters. After reading The Devil & the White City I could almost imagine Mr.Dunham,himself. It was delightful. Coming from the Northwest to visit Chicago I found the location perfect. Easy walking to the park,shopping and even the river tour. The staff was very friendly and helpful and my husband and I felt quite at home coming and going in and out of the hotel. I would definitely stay there again. We did use the safe but had a smile about the leopard robes that hung in the clothes closet.

Historical Haven

The Hotel Burnham is a journey into history. The hotel is located in the middle of the best of Chicago and convenient to all mass transit. The old Marshall Fields Building (now Macys) is across the street. We could see the lake from our Chicago-style windows.

Take the blue line train direct from O'Hare to Washington Street (40 minutes) and walk a block to the hotel. Also, gourmet fast food restaurants on the 7th floor of Macys (Marshall Fields) - Seven on State - is a great place for an excellent lunch. Argo Tea, Jamba Juice, and Corner Bakery are all great food places.

GREAT ROMANTIC WEEKEND SPOT

The location of this historic hotel is perfect. My request for a top floor room with a view was granted cheerfully . We liked the touch of having a small goldfish in the room-the perfect pet for our stay! Very high quality furnishings and bedding.

great location

My girl friends and I had great experience to stay at this hotel. Interior decoration and the view from the hotel was beautiful and staff was friendly. We loved to have wine glasses in the room! Great location for shopping and museum visit.

Good things come in small packages

The Burnham is a small hotel which has many things going for it: 1)great location in the loop, particularly if you are in town for theater, opera,concerts, shopping on State Street, etc; 2) wonderful preservation of an historic building; 3) rooms while on the small side are loaded with wonderful amenities; 4) great restaurant-the Atwood; 5) courteous and helpful staff

Great location and architectural gem

The Hotel Burnham in Chicago was a very lovely, well-restored hotel. One member of our party is studying architecture in college and he was fascinated by the restoration of this former skyscraper and the detail included in the restoration. The bathroom was very large and easy to move around in - there was a large vanity, good hooks for hanging clothes, and nice toiletries. The hotel was in the Loop area of Chicago and many attractions were within walking distance -Millenium Park, The Art Institute, the Chicago ArchiCenter, and Sears Tower (to name a few.)

Great surprise

We visit Chicago quite often but have almost stayed at hotels along the Magnificent Mile. On this trip we wanted to experience the Taste of Chicago so we chose Hotel Burnham which is an easy walk to Grant Park. The staff there couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. I forgot some toiletries, and after calling the desk, someone brought replacements to our room within minutes. The complimentary evening wine reception was relaxing, enjoyable, and a great way to meet fellow travelers. Our room was small but it was immaculate and beauifully decorated. After a day of sight-seeing, we returned to the hotel, always getting a nice welcome back and acknowledgement from the staff. We'll definitely return to this hotel. Although it's a little longer walk to the Magnificent Mile and Navy Pier, the decor, service, and friendliness of the staff make the extra steps well worthwhile.
