The independently-owned Whitehall Hotel is Chicago's answer to the quirky boutique hotel, with a prestigious list of past guests that includes Katharine Hepburn and Mick Jagger. The Whitehall has been around since the 1920s, and maintains a combination of European-inspired charm and warm Midwestern hospitality, from the plush upholstered lounge-seating to the dark wood paneling and sparkling chandeliers. Feast on steamed dumplings and other Asian bites at Mei's Corner, or drink in the same seats that the Beatles once graced in the Whitehall Lounge. Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel (fees may apply) brings you back into the 21st century, though personal services like the overnight shoeshine retain that vintage feel.

Neighborhood
Right on Chicago's Gold Coast and with handy access to nearby Michigan Avenue, or 'The Magnificent Mile', stay at the Whitehall Chicago and you'll find yourself within walking distance of first-class eateries, movie theaters, colorful clothing stores like Lulu's on the Avenue, and all the pulsing nightlife of Rush Street. Guests in the mood for a moonlit stroll can access Oak Street Beach, only steps away from the Whitehall's front door.

Great Trip!

We arrived around noon and were just hoping to drop our bags off. The staff was very friendly and attentive and allowed us to check in three hours early. The location is great. Everything you want or need is within walking distance. There is new central air. There was construction going on in the vacant rooms next to us. It was during the day and we were in and out of the room anyway. It was definately tolerable. On my next trip to Chicago, I will check availability with the Whitehall first.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Before shopping for souvenirs , I would check the local pharmacys for the best deals on shirts, hats, magnets, whatever it is that you are looking for. We stopped by Walgreens on our way out and I could have saved a ton of money.

Great stay

Bargain accommodation only blocks from fancier hotels and from Water Tower shopping. Couldn't have asked for a better spot to spend a few day. It'll be even better when the noisy air conditioning systems are replaced (soon, I'm told)

Fabulous

This hotel was in a great location one block from the heart of the Magnificent Mile. There were lots of unique eating opportunities a quick walk away. The concierge and the bellman were very helpful in suggesting places to go and how to get there. Our room was beautifully decorated and the fourposter bed was extremely comfy!

Nice hotel in the best neighborhood

Very clean and beautiful hotel, in the heart of Chicago's Miracle Mile shopping district. Next to the Hancock Tower, Michigan Ave, and Ditka's steakhouse. Very short walk down to the Loop. Large variety of interesting clubs, restaurants right next door. Hotel staff is very helpful, and rooms are spotless, and have new, fresh decor.
