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.

Accommodations

Most elegant hotel I've been to in years. Great hospitality - the beds are to die for. I wish I could rate it ten stars.

So Comfortable!

Being on business trip, you get really tired by the end of the day. Being able to sleep well is really important to feel ready for the next day. THe Whitehall's service was great and the bed was amzingly comfortable.

Great location and nice comortable place to be.

The location of the Whitehall Hotel is ideal...minutes from access to Oak Street Beach and miles of beautiful Lakefront Trails and is also just blocks away from the Red Line stop at Chicago and State street, providing access to all of Chicago through CTA buses and trains. Hotel itself was fantastic too...I would stay there again!

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

I stubmled upon a bar called Blue Frog The Local 22 on Hubbard between State and Wabash...ended up going back there every night. Burgerswere awesome and there was a great beer selection on tap. Best of all was that everyone there...customers and employees alike, where among the friendliest people I met.
