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.

Great location

The Whitehall is just a hop, skip and a jump away from all of the great sites to see in downtown Chicago. We just loved being able to walk to all of the places we wanted to visit. The hotel itself has very charming lounge areas to take advantage of as well.

Great location

With the sole exception of one of the ladies at the concierge, which was very rude (even with her colleages at the recepcion), our stay in Chicago was great. The Whitehall hotel is excepcionally located and they have an outstanding price vs quality ratio. We received so many valuable tips from them that improved our visit: Driehaus museum, alternative arquitecture tour, segway, Prosecco restaurant... Only failed with the Blackbird restaurant recommendation, which we found too average for its price...

Chicago trip - whitehall hotel

The Whitehall Hotel in Chicago has a really good location. It is right off of Michigan Ave (great shopping) and Rush St (great bars and restaurants) The Sears Tower is only about 1.5 miles away - not a bad walk at all. The hotel staff were pretty friendly and accommodating. The concierge gave us VIP tickets to a really great jazz club on Rush St. It was a pretty clean hotel...small rooms and bathroom but pretty clean. The fitness center was pretty good too...nice machines and free weights. I think the best part of this hotel was the location. It is close to most everything.

Peaceful Retreat

Basically was just looking for a place to sleep, was a quiet experience, friendly and helpful staff, and a fantastic location. Parking was a little pricey, but it is Chicago.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Save some time and a few bucks by parking in the public lot across the street and forget the valet parking.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

The Navy Pier, the Architecture River Cruise and the Chicago Best Tour Trolley ride was very interesting. The Taste of Chicago made it a good time to travel. Sears Tower Excellent. Over all Chicago is a place to visit again!

Great location, comfy & clean rooms!

Great location! Super comfy bed and clean room/bathroom! Hotel staff was relatively unknowledgeable about local happenings (4th of July fireworks), directions, renting bikes and routes, etc., but were friendly and tried to be helpful at least.

Not Worth the Price

We had a small stream of water as a shower. The air conditioning didn't work; rooms were very humid and sticky. The hotel was still under renovation/restoration; it would have been nice to know this prior to booking this hotel. The staff at The Whitehall Hotel were very friendly, which is about all that I can say about my stay.

Great Hotel Find - Perfect Location!

the hotel is a quaint boutique hotel with tons of character and charm. The room was clean and large and the service was impecable. The location was perfect as it was right between Michigan Ave and Rush Street so you get the best shopping and dining/night life within a 3 minute walk. I highly recommend this hotel and will stay there our next trip to Chi Town!
