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.

Everything I needed was there

Easy, low key, elegant, quiet, clean, comfortable. close to Art Institute, Cultural Center, shopping, and Millenium Park. Easy to use public transit (a block away) to get to O'Hare.

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 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 spot, small rooms

Centrally located, easy to get to everything downtown. The rooms were a little on the small side, but were well appointed.

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.

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!

Lovely historical place!

Like other Kimpton's hotels, this was is nicely appointed in a great historical building. Free newspapers from all over the US for breakfast. Great location in midtown. The rooms to the street are noisy -- you are in the midst of town! It was fine with me but might now be with others.

Great Staff; Small Rooms

While the staff and common areas were very nice, and access by public transport was wonderful, the room and bath were small, and dark. For the price, I expected more.

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!

Okay Stay

I love old buildings/hotels and Burnham fits the bill. I don't mind the smallish bathroom/room or the noise from the streets. However, I do like a clean room and a accommodating staff. The walls in my bathroom were pretty nasty (i.e., had not been cleaned in long time) and the front desk person on Monday was clearly not in a good mood. The hotel was not full and I was point blank denied a late checkout - not 15 minutes, nothing. The business kiosk (not a business center) was not working and the same front desk person referred me to an office supply store a block away - "they open at 7:00". Great, I headed off through the wind/rain to the store. Oops, they does not open until 8:00. Little things, but to me little things are what takes a hotel to 4/5 star.
