Great location, but aging building

You could tell the building was old. The light switch cap in our bathroom kept falling off, the halls were a little dark and narrow. But the rooms were inexpensive and the rooms are decorated with a certain simple elegance

Great Staff, Good Location

This lovely old small hotel (compared to a Hyatt or something) is priced right if you get a discount. It's nice, it's clean, but the rooms are a bit thready around the edges. From desk clerk to door person, The Staff is very friendly and exceptionally helpful. We had noisy neighbors in room next door, and the staff handled the situation quickly and as well as they could. The restaurant's alright, not that pricey, but drinks are high. If you want to be downtown this is the perfect location.

ok

no surprising. It's ok considering it's cheap compared with other ones around it. The most annoying thing is they don't have free internet even in the lobby!

Great location!!

Whitehall hotel is 2 blocks away from the John Hancock building and a short walk away from countless stores to shop at. If you're into walking, it takes about 20 minutes to reach Millennium Park (excluding the time you stop to take pictures of Marilyn Monroe, of course). The hotel was clean and comfortable but there were things that could have been better structurally speaking. Their elevator is quite narrow and their walls aren't as thick as I'm used to. Any time a neighbor went in and out of their room, it sounded like someone was entering my own room. I also was able to hear anyone watching tv.

Visit but don't stay

The location is wonderful and the bed was comfortable. The staff was helpful for the most part. The lounge is quiet and attractive. I did not eat at the hotel. Unfortunately the halls and rooms are dark, dirty, and smelly.

Not horrible

The hotel is a bit dated and is priced high for what you receive. Only positive is its proximity to Michigan and Rush street. Surprisingly, the gym is not that bad

When location is everything

The Whitehall is one of the classic boutique hotels in Chicago with a great location just steps away from North Michigan Avenue. The property itself is tired and is need of a complete renovation...from bathrooms and room furniture/TVs to the lobby and lounge. Service was adequate but lounge understaffed...especially at the cocktail hour during the holidays. While the Whitehall has personal sentimental value, it was probably the last time we'll spend a downtown weekend evening there. Farewell to an old friend! MjB

Since you are saving on a cheaper room, splurge at the wonderful Les Nomades. Romantic and the menu and winelist would make a Parisian proud!

Not what it used to be

The hotel is historical, but it does need some cosmetic care. Wallpaper peeling, paint chipped, worn rugs. Bed was comfy. You had to call room service to get ice and they put their hand out for a tip. Spiff it up Whitehall!
