The hotel was clean and comfortable. There are only a few rooms on each floor which limited hallway traffic and noise. The hotel is close to excellent shopping and restaurants and is a reasonable distance from Oak Street Beach. Unfortunately, the hotel does not provide small amenities such as bottle openers for guests which caused some inconvenience. There was often a line to board the elevators which were quite small.
Our travel purpose was to visit 3 universities in Chicago area. The Whitehall Hotel was a great home-base location.
The rooms are very comfy, and the bed - amazing - if you're into feathery comfort. All staff were welcoming and helpful. Our only complaint was that our room was on the 5th floor and overlooked the loading dock. Of course it got noisy sometimes in the evening. Not so noisy that we couldn't sleep, but I'd recommend requesting a higher floor. Overall, an excellent choice and we will definitely return in the future. We were walking distance from Lookingglass Theater, the Magnificent Mile shopping, and several amazing restaurants.
I stayed at the Warwick Allerton for 3 nights in the middle of July. The location is on the Miracle Mile at the corner of Michigan and Huron. It was very easy to find and most major attractions in downtown Chicago were within walking distance. I found the front staff to be very friendly and helpful, and I was able to check into my room right away even though I arrived around noon. My room on the 20th floor was nicely appointed, clean, and comfortable. Even though this hotel is older, it is well maintained, clean, and furnished in a modern style. The only comment I would add is that the elevators were older and slower. Even though four and sometimes five were available during the day, I usually found myself waiting longer for an elevator than I expected. If you are staying here, you should plan to add a few minutes to your transitions to make sure you are not late for appointments. Besides this, everything was great. I would definitely recommend this hotel, and I would definitely stay here again.
Loved my stay in the area. It took only 20 minutes to walk downtown to the boat cruises and the shopping was outstanding. Every kind of store you would want. The lake shore beaches is 5 to 10 minutes away. Staff at the hotel was outstanding and we had breakfast each morning at the hotel and it was very good. As for lunch and dinner there was every kind of restaurant you would want and could walk to them. Had a great time and would absolutely go back and stay in the same area again. Used to live in that area and knew it well. The near north side is the best.
