Friendly, professional staff, nice room and comfortable beds. Love the location and will be back. Very centrally located, I loved how close it is to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. I did not try the restaurant, but maybe next time. Exceeded expectations!

I don't even know where to start... This was our first time at the Silversmith hotel and it was very enjoyable. The moment we walked through the front door everyone was friendly, upbeat, and helpful.

Lovely hotel close to the tourist attractions which was exactly what we needed as we was only in the city for a day. 1 block from millennium park and plenty of restaurants to choose from whether you want fine dining or fast food. The double room was much bigger than expected and the beds very comfortable, which was very welcome... More

This was my first time staying at the hotel, and I am extremely impressed. The hotel is clean, modern, and full of amenities. My room was very large, and I like that it included a Keurig coffeemaker as well as a small refrigerator. Everyone on the staff - from the bellmen at the front door to the front desk workers,...

We stayed near the end of August just to visit the city. The Silversmith is very convenient to the Art Institute, the Field Museum, and the Planetarium. And the Magnificent Mile is not too far in the other direction while Grant Park is only a block away. We walked to everything, most were 20-30 minute walks. But the occasional cab... More

Convenient location in the loop. Great for visiting downtown. The entrance to the hotel faces the L and is very loud, but once you are inside you don't hear the noise. We stayed in room 515 facing a brick wall view, but no noise :) The hotel is clean, and has a very modern feel with its grey/white color scheme.... More

It took us three tries to get a satisfactory "deluxe" king room, that was comfortable, but hardly deluxe. It is important to understand that this hotel is newly renovated but in an odd way that results in rooms having different sizes and configurations. Some of the configurations are bizarre.

We stayed for a few nights of our honeymoon and loved the hotel. It's a great location, the staff are wonderful and we didn't mind the noise from the EL as our room faced the centre of the hotel. There was no wonderful view but we didn't spend a lot of time inside. Excellent hotel and service!

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
