Overview

If you prefer a unique stay on your travels, the independently-owned Whitehall Hotel is Chicago's answer to the quirky boutique hotel, not to mention owning the prestige of past guests like Katharine Hepburn and Mick Jagger. The Whitehall has been around since the 1920s, and maintains a combination of European-inspired charm and good old Midwest hospitality, from the plush upholstered lounge seating to the dark wood paneling to the sparkling chandeliers. Feast on steamed dumplings and other Asian bites at Mei's Corner or drink in the same seat that the Beatles once graced in the Whitehall Lounge. Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel brings you back into the 21st century, though personal services like the overnight shoe shine retain that vintage feel.

Racist staff

Would not recommend Tue, Dec 1, 2015
The girl who checked me in was very rude. She heard us speaking a different language and immediately said how much she loved donald trump and everything he stood for. Very racist comment.

Thanksgiving trip

Would not recommend Fri, Nov 27, 2015
We call in hotel services and asked about parking before arrived, someone mention there will be parking free self-parking instead of valet parking. After we arrived, they say it change the policy, but we can pay cash for parking... I feel really bad at that minute, but beside parking is fine

Poor Customer Service

Would not recommend Sun, Oct 25, 2015
Customer service doesn't exist for this hotel. The hotel was under renovation and there was a letter in room indicating the construction will only start daily at 9 am. However, while I was there, the construction actually started around 8 am. So I called and complained at the front desk, but the lady just said that she couldn't hear any noise and ignored my complaint. At the end of the stay, I made the same complaint when I checked out and the manager was supposed to call me back for my complaint but nothing happened. Well... this hotel was cheaper compare to other hotels at the same location, but you just can't expect any customer service from them.

Wonderful place

Would recommend Thu, Oct 8, 2015
Stayed here for a business trip and was very pleased with the experienced and overall ambience. The hotel is amazingly well-located and decorated, with a lovely bar and lobby and attentive staff. The wifi, however, was not functional in our room.

Perfect Anniversary Night

Would recommend Sat, Oct 3, 2015
Picked this place because it was close to mag mile, oak st. and just a 20 minute walk to Navy Pier. I didn't plan to stay long in the hotel, but the decor downstairs and the nice view of the John Hancock made it tempting just to stick around a little longer. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The only downside, if any, was no ice machines but that was just a call to the front desk and brought up in a mater of minutes.
