It's only fitting that this historic hotel is just a few blocks from Jewelers Row given its name and former purpose. In the 1890s, its tenants worked in the jewelry and silver trade. Today, landmark elements -- a cast iron staircase, terra cotta touches -- give the Silversmith Hotel Chicago a unique architectural identity. Ideally situated near the Magnificent Mile and Millennium Park, the Silversmith Hotel Chicago appeals to budget-minded travelers seeking quick access to Chicago's most popular attractions.
Rooms

Rooms and suites at the Silversmith Hotel Chicago serve their purpose, providing comfortable beds and a place to freshen up in between sightseeing excursions. The hotel’s 12-foot ceilings add dimension, while 10-foot picture windows view the city and the El. Wood headboards, desks and Prairie-style lamps complete the casual look. Complimentary wireless Internet access is available throughout the property.

good location

The staff was very welcoming and helpful. Ask for a room away from the El. No view rooms in the hotel. A premium room just gets a sleeper sofa, don't bother. When we extended our stay on a premium reservation we chose not to switch out of our standard king room because we would have been nearer the El. The staff wanted to charge us the premium rate and had to ask permission for the lower rate.

Mother/daughter weekend

An absolute Chicago gem. My mom and I stayed here for a weekend for a mother/daughter weekend trip and could not have imagined a better experience. The hotel itself is very modern and chic, our room was HUGE which was a pleasant surprise as we didn't expect it to be. The bedrooms are also very modern and clean, complete with bath robes as well :-) We took the train from the airport, which took us almost directly in front of our hotel. The hotel staff was very helpful with giving us directions and suggestions on where to go in Chicago. The hotel is within minutes walking distance to seriously everywhere in Chicago. We had a blast and plan to return here every year. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a real Chicago treat!

A jewel tucked away in downtown Chicago

The Silversmith is a boutique hotel hidden in a superbly located downtown Chicago area. We were there for just one night, but already used many of the advantages of the hotel's excellent location. A short walk to the Art Institute and many eateries near it are just some of the examples. I particularly liked the gym/exercise area. While it doesn't have many different machines, it covers the basic needs with 4 running and 2 ellipse exercises machines, free weights, 6 medicine balls of different weights, a stability ball and a yoga mat. The place is airy and open, with huge windows onto Wabash with the El passing by every now and then.

Great Hotel, but CTA Noise!

The Hotel is clean, room is spacious and staff is exemplary! The main issue is the outside noise, located right next to the CTA stop you can hear the train passing all the time.

Lives up to the hype.

Rarely do things in life live up to the hype.....but the Silversmith Hotel is a rare exception. After reading the positive reviews, I decided to book a night at the Silversmith versus one of the more well known branded hotels. I could not have been any happier. The room was extremely clean, well appointed, and exceptionally large!! The hotel staff was very courteous, friendly, and conscientious. It was a first class experience all around.
