In 1927, notable architects Rissman & Hirschfield, responsible for many highlights on the Chicago skyline, finished a 14-story, gothic-inspired hotel that is now known as the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel. Newly-redesigned guest rooms with spa-style bathrooms entice guests to stay at this classic gateway to the Magnificent Mile. Historical architecture charms while the prime location of the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel allows for a short walk to business meetings in the Loop, famed Chicago attractions and Michigan Avenue shopping.
Rooms

After a complete redesign, the 306 guest rooms and suites at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel show off their new look and enhanced comfort with Sealy pillow-top bedding, Frette linens, down comforters and plush pillows. A quiet, toned down neutral scheme receives a punch of cranberry for style. Slip into the terrycloth robe and slippers, pull the blackout shades and raid the stocked mini-bar or unwind in front of the 40-inch flat-screen TV at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel. Bathrooms gleam with spa-inspired design and a rain shower. Connect to high-speed wireless Internet at will (fees apply).

Property features

Guests start the day at NiX restaurant, a white-tablecloth bistro that serves breakfast and lunch at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel. After dark, pop into M Bar for a signature martini and live music. Nearly every Saturday night, the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel hosts the Dinner Detective Murder Mystery, a top Chicago murder mystery event and dinner show.

Weekend visit to Chicago

This hotel is located directly across the street from The Drake hotel so the value for this hotel is totally worth staying here rather than spending a fortune at The Drake. We were there during the Big 10 basketball tournament and St. Patrick's Day so the city was busy and so was the hotel but you would never know as the staff was very professional, nice and accommodating. You could walk anywhere you wanted downtown or to the beach without taking a taxi or the El. The room was very clean and the room itself was updated and very nice. We will definitely be staying here again. Loved it!

Great location. Nice hotel

This hotel is in a great location and very nice. Wish it had free wi-fi in the rooms but other then that we really like everything else. We noticed the pay per view movies didn't work when we selected one but we didn't contact anyone about that. Great stay overall.
