Overview

With an intriguing history that may or may not include Al Capone and bootleg liquor, the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel in Chicago was once owned by Hugh Hefner, who renamed it the Playboy Hotel. Notable past guests include members of the Rolling Stones and John F. Kennedy. Now a part of the Millennium Hotels and Resorts family, this boutique hotel was built in 1927 and still retains old-world charm alongside modern amenities such as the up-to-the-minute 24-hour fitness center, a conference center and large bathrooms with walk-in showers.

History buffs will appreciate the Millennium Knickerbocker's proximity to the Chicago Water Tower, one of only a handful of downtown buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The tower has been designated a national historical site, and the City Gallery, which showcases the artwork and photography of local Chicago residents, is located inside the tower.

The Millennium Knickerbocker is less than 2 miles from Navy Pier, a charming attraction that features theme park-style rides, restaurants and shops, an IMAX theater and a vantage point on Lake Michigan. Don't miss Navy Pier's spectacular fireworks shows held twice weekly throughout the summer months.

Won't go back.

Would not recommend Tue, Dec 22, 2015
Very noisy hotel -- very difficult to sleep there. The furniture was old (and not in a classic, antique way) and unappealing. Not many television stations, no DVD player, on demand rentals were about $17 for a new release. Valet parking was $67 a day. Staff was unhelpful with the one request we had. I would recommend staying at the Congress Hotel -- cheaper with more amenities, better access to parks and museums, better shopping, more reasonable prices dining, and much cheaper to park.

2nd time

Would recommend Sat, Dec 12, 2015
I've stayed at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel. I think it's a great value. I missed the music in the lobby on my last stay which, for me, was disappointing. I guess I'll have to stay on a weekend like I did the first time when they do have live entertaiment :) If I can change one thing at the hotel it would be this: I'd lower the toilets. I'm around 5'11 but why should my feet barely touch the floor? A delicate subject I know but fixable.

Okay getaway

Would not recommend Sat, Oct 17, 2015
The hotel needs some renovations. Pull up the stained carpets and replace. Perhaps leaving more than 2 bars of soap in the room would be a good idea. The water is hard so the soap doesn't last but maybe 2 showers.

Billy Joel

Would recommend Thu, Oct 15, 2015
Stayed in downtown for the Billy Joel concert at Wrigley. This hotel is conveniently located close to shopping and a walk to the beach on Lake Michigan. It's also close to the subway lines, so you can get anywhere in Chicago quickly. It's an older hotel, but a good value. This is the second time I have stayed here and I would stay again.
