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.

Good Hotel - but needs atmosphere !!

Great location, room was very nice but bathroom could do with a revamp. Came back one evening about 10.30pm and bar was closed. Close to restaurants and bars.. We went everywhere on bus and subway. Very nice hotel but when I return to Chicago will stay more down in the Loop.

Nice Historic Hotel

This is a nice hotel for the price and its age. The room was clean and cozy, but it was difficult to find plug ins and get the lamps to turn on. My only real complaint is that the sink wouldn't drain properly and the toilet had problems flushing, but I blame that on the old building. My friend complained because there was no coffee maker in the room; they also didn't serve complimentary breakfast/coffee, it had to be purchased from the restaurant attached to the hotel.

Touristy weekeend getaway

The hotel was very clean and comfortable, however my one big complaint was that there was no WI-FI!!! In this day and age I expect pretty much every hotel to come with free WI-FI, but they wanted to charge $9.95 for it. A huge turn off. But the big plus was the location, it was in the heart of the city, close to a lot of sites and famous restaurants.

Like going home

Wonderful trip ! The staff at the Whitehall has the best of Chicago. Just like going home and being with old friends. The room was meticulously clean and well appointed. My only wish would be to have a coffee machine and night room service. Love this gem of a hotel!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Take a left out of the hotel, right at first cross street. Walk three blocks and you have your choice of seafood, steak, bar food and street table service.
