It's a beautiful hotel, and I had a perfect room on the "historic floor," the 8th. Location is great for downtown, Grant Park, Art Institute. Easy access to public transit, very easy to get to Miracle Mile and Boystown, and to Midway Airport. Only problem with location is finding food nearby-- options tend to be either haute cuisine or fast...

Hotel Burnham is a lovely hotel with a superb staff. Loved the wine hour and the people that work the desk go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. My only complaints are that the bathroom is tiny, with only a pedestal sink and a small glass shelf and it seemed as if they turned off the air conditioning...

My husband and I spent a long weekend in Chicago recently.

Since we wanted to go the Art Institute and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the location of the Burnham...

My girlfriend and I stayed two nights in this hotel. The location is great and most attractions are close. The room was very small, but I guess that is the price of location. Overall, it was not a good value. I think we could have gotten a much cheaper hotel and still been close to the things we wanted to...

If you enjoy cookie cutter properties, this isn't the place for you. But if you enjoy unique, historic properties then you will enjoy the Burnham. This building is unique because the ceilings are ridiculously high with giant windows that let in lots of light. Unlike most hotels, the blinds are semi-transparent so you can enjoy the lovely view without sacrificing...

I was in Chicago for business and got this hotel because it was cheaper. This hotel is located at a very convenient shopping area. Nordstrom Rack is literally right downstairs, and Macy's shopping mall is across the street. There's a Target a block away. A restaurant is in the hotel. Walgreens and Lavazza coffee shop are also right next door!...

The Hotel Burnham is housed in the historic Reliance building, which is an architecturally significant "skyscraper" dating from the 1890's and which was built to house small offices such as those for doctors and dentists. After falling into a state of total disrepair it was carefully restored to its former glory. (Check out the photos and commentary in the State...
