The Whitehall Hotel remains a landmark destination in downtown Chicago, offering a very European sense of grace and grandeur. Thanks to meticulous restorations. In perfect harmony with the old world charm are modern conveniences such as a fitness center. In-room features include three multi-line telephones with voicemail, high speed internet (for fee). Step outside and you'll find that the hotel is ideally located in the heart of the Gold Coast, nestled amid the Magnificent Mile's shops, restaurants, theaters, entertainment, and the business district. The Whitehall Hotel, Downtown Chicago's True Independent Boutique Hotel, proudly and successfully endures the test of time. The hotel will exceed your expectations and invite you to explore The Whitehall Hotel today.

We will return!

Two friends and I just spent four delightful days in Chicago and part of the delight was staying at the Whitehall Hotel. The one block walk to North Michigan Ave. and the Water Tower Place was so convenient. Two blocks the other direction put us on State St. The staff is friendly and very helpful. When I called to report that the hair dryer quit mid-hair drying, a new one was delivered to my room as soon as I hung up! Our rooms had newly remodeled bathrooms and the beds were very comfortable with down mattress covers as well as comforters. Two amenities that we wish would have been provided would be coffee pots in the rooms and ice machines in the halls; however, the staff quickly delivered ice to our rooms and the complimentary coffee in the lobby was excellent. We will return!

Paizano Pizza is a short walk from the Whitehall west and then south on State St. This is Oprah's favorite pizza restaurant, and we agree that it is wonderful!

Not too bad.

The stay was nice. The staff was perfect. I do wish they had better access to electrical outlets in the room. Paid for wifi for 24 hours and did not get full 24 hours. Location really was nice.

Go to the bar at the top of the John Hancock. Great view -- without having to pay for observatory. Drinks were expensive, but the view made it well worth it.

Business trip to Chicago

Great location and staff. Would definitely stay again. Only negative was the fact that one of the two elevators was out of service. Options were a very long wait or 8 flights of stairs. At least I got some exercise on a long business trip.

A brief wonderful experience

Eight of us in our family stayed at the Whitehall for attendance at a family funeral in downtown Chicago. Everything about our very brief stay was excellent, including a delicious and well-served breakfast. The location could not have been more convenient and the neighborhood was extremely pleasant, with an old world feel to it. Highest recommendation. We lucked out!

Nice place

The Whitehall is a bit of an aging beauty, but has a great location and is a comfortable place to stay. A pet peeve, I hate it when a hotel dings you an extra $10 for wi-fi-- why nickel and dime guests in this way? For a couple of bucks, it leaves a bad feeling. There was some renovation going on, but they keep it under control. Great location.

Hate to let the cat out of the bag!

The Whitehall Hotel is a real gem. When location is everything, this place can't be beat - just a block from Water Tower shopping and 3 blocks from the red line. It's also just across the street from the Four Seasons Hotel but this place won't bust your pocketbook. The rooms are more than adequate with a relaxing vibe. It's surprisingly quiet being only a block from Michigan and I barely heard a peep from the hallway or neighboring rooms. And, what lady doesn't love a light up makeup mirror in the bathroom. Will stay here again and again and again! PS: doormen super friendly and always ready to assist.

You can't beat this location for Magnificent Mile Shopping. Close enough to drop off your bags and head out to get more!
