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.

Great location

Good hotel in a great location. They were doing some construction on the hotel which was a little distracting but they did wait to start after 9am. We were close to many eating places, shopping, and navy pier.

Fine hotel, did the trick, great location. Wasn't too pleased with flights being cancelled and then the hotel didn't refund the one night I missed.

Frigid Room

Location and staff were excellent, however, the cold day in Chicago crept in my room and would not leave. Older hotel had cold air flowing down from the thin windows and onto the floor. It'd be OK in warm weather and maybe it was just my luck in the room they put me in but I was chilly the entire time.

good recovery to a bad start.

The front desk staff was particularly helpful. When we checked in we were given a lovely newly renovated room with a lovely view. The problem was that the thermostat didn't work properly and we spend a cold night that was saved by the cozy down comforters on a comfortable bed.. After telling the front desk the next morning, without question we were moved to a suite on the upper floor, along with coupons for a free breakfast. The front desk staff went out of their way to accommodate us. The hotel restaurant was excellent in both service and food. Worth a visit even if you are not staying at the hotel.

Dining tip: In Hotel

the dining room attached to the hotel is worthwhile. As good as, if not better than, most others in the neighborhood.whether looking for a Pizza or a full meal.

Just what we had in mind

The room was spectacularly comfortable. The staff was fantastically friendly. And the location was perfect. We would happily stay there again.

Noise all day long (and also the night)

The room was right in front of the elevator. We could hear noise all day, and all night long from people coming and going.

Great Location!

The hotel location is excellent, near great restaurants, shops and attractions. The bed was very hard, which for me is uncomfortable. I would also have appreciated a refrigerator in the room.

good location, clean rooms, expensive parking

The location is very good. The rooms are clean but a bit old. Parking is expensive, but I guess that's as cheap as it gets if you want to stay downtown.
