Kimpton Hotel Allegro

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is decent but rundown for the price point, especially the elevators. Good location near the River and public transportation options

Nice hotel with a boutique vibe, rooms a bit on the small side but comfy. Central location close to important lines of public transportation.

Some construction going on at the hotel. Liked the Gray more than the Allegro.

The location is great and close to so many theatres and restaurants. But it's an older hotel so the rooms are very cramped and noisy. It's a charming hotel but not comfortable.

We had a pretty good stay at the Kimpton Allegro, particularly given the price that we paid. The hotel has a fun, modern feel and the staff is very nice. We particularly enjoyed the social hour with free prosecco, the nice lobby area with plenty of lounge space, and the free coffee bar available in the morning. The rooms were also nicely decorated and in good condition. Our biggest issue with the Kimpton was noise, and I'm not sure that there is anything the hotel can really do about the problem. The walls are extremely thin--you can hear conversations, televisions and music. You can also hear the hotel staff when they start cleaning in the morning, it was difficult to sleep past 8am (not very fun on a Sunday morning). The rooms are also quite small. This was not a big for us because we didn't plan to spend a lot of time in our room, but if you want space to spread out and relax this might not be the place. Overall, this is a good place if you can get a deal (we only paid about $100/night). However, I would not pay much more given the noise and space issues.

We love the Allegro - so close to theaters, Macy's, Chriskindlemart, Grant Park and so much else. Love the décor, the bar and the happy hour. Great staff.

Great got upgraded to suite had wine in afternoon

There was a technical cliché when we checked in. However, the front desk upgraded us to a suite to compensate for the inconvenience. We were very pleased.

The property is a bit older, but kept up very well. The rooms are small (quaint), but comfortable. The staff is efficient, but not really the personality and service of let's say a Lowes or Fairmont, but they get the transaction done. I will say that they took quick action when I called down to tell them that the carpet was wet in my room. I stepped in a huge wet spot in front of the door and beside the bed. I was in socks, so imagine. It had the smell of animal pee - the downside of an animal friendly hotel. However, they quickly put me into another room. There is zero room service in the hotel, so after a long day of traveling I wanted to relax and just not do anything. In order to get food you either have to go downstairs and get the food yourself (restaurant), or you will have to call for delivery. I opted for delivery, and still ended up having to go downstairs and get my food. That was a useless idea.

I would pay maybe $50/night for this hotel. Thin walls, outdated, old carpet, spiders, small rooms. Will never stay here again.

This hotel has a great location. It is a clean, quiet hotel.

Pro: close to everything / interesting vibe and nice bar Con: dark, weird non-functional bathroom doors in room, area gets sketchy at night

Hotel is gorgeous! The room was comfortable & the bed was amazing. The morning coffee & fruit in the lobby was a treat. Hotel staff were friendly & very accommodating. Can't beat the location. A great experience & I would stay there again.

Front desk staff was VERY helpful. Answered all of my many questions with a smile - they had a great sense of humor, which was much appreciated. The hotel was beautiful and convenient. I would stay again.

I had a terrible time at the hotel. From initial check in down to the hallway smelling terrible on the 7th floor where my room was. The toilet wasn't working as well. I called downstairs from my room to have them fix it and three hours later no one came. I had to end up leaving a note on the toilet for housekeeping so that it would get fixed.

Great experience. The morning coffee is fantastic! Do wish they had room service though.

We had a fabulous weekend, the mixologists at the bar were great. Wonderful atmosphere.

Found it even more enjoyable since they completed the remodel of the lobby. love the extra of their social hour before we had out on the town.

Thanks for staying with us and providing your feedback. The rooms are a bit cozy, which is what you get in a historic 1920's building along with the charm! Come back soon!
