    Staff were amazing! They took care of all the details with great courtesy. The room was beautiful, the bed was super comfortable and everything was very clean. The Atwood Cafe food was delicious, and they modified reservations for us without a fuss. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to family and friends.

    I liked the location and the quite comfort of the room. I liked the variety of contents in the minibar, even though I didn't actually eat but one thing.

    My room was a little noisy, but I just wore earplugs and that worked out for the most part.

    We had a fantastic experience staying at the Burnham, from the very friendly and helpful front desk staff, through to the gorgeous room and great view, as well as excellent cafe/restaurant staff and service. The restaurant was closed on the 4th of July holiday, and the front desk staff had prepared a list of local restaurants that were open and kindly booked our choice for us - thank you! The hotel building itself is beautiful and well restored and in a fantastic location within the loop, shopping district, and close to millenium park. We really appreciated our stay - what a great welcome to Chicago and the US!

    It was for our wedding anniversary, and they treated us very well. We always get great service at any Kimpton hotel!

    Key location in the loop with almost no street noise on the 10th floor. Very nice room at a great price.

  • Single

    The Burnham has a lot to offer. Its location in the Loop is perfect for all of the cultural opportunities in Chicago: Art Institute, Lyric Opera, Joffrey Ballet, Goodman Theater and more. Access to the red line is steps away. The hotel is architecturally significant. It has a first class restaurant, the Atwood Cafe. And probably most importantly, the rooms are comfortable and clean, and the staff is efficient, helpful and friendly. They offer Starbucks coffee in the lobby every morning and wine in the late afternoon. That's a nice touch. Really, it has everything I want from a Chicago hotel.

    The location was wonderful. We also enjoyed the fact that the hotel was situated in a building that had been an architectural gem.

    Weekend brunch was over priced. Weekday menu was more reasonable.

    Loved the small ambience of it's restaurant, bar and sitting room with fireplace. Breakfast each morning with a corner view of the city outside was wonderful. Also liked that it was a dog-friendly hotel.

    You don't fix cocktails in a tall glass without asking the customer. Had an extremely costly drink that tasted more like lemon water than scotch with water and a twist.

    Hotel Burnham was in the perfect location. We walked everywhere! From the hotel, we were able to walk throughout the financial district, theater district and cross the river to the Magnificent Mile. Great location!

    We loved the hotel, the only inconvenience was that there was a fee to use the business kiosk. Usually at hotels of that luxury, the 5 minute use of a computer is free. But not too big of a deal!

    Fantastic downtown loop location in a beautifully restored historical building.

    The staff were all very friendly. great location--close to shopping, the metro, and Millennium Park. Also, hotel rooms are accessible using a real key!

    The decor could use some updating. Curtains had rips and I had a towel with mold.

    It's a small boutique hotel with wonderful design elements. The staff was very friendly and service-oriented. While the rooms are small, they are elegantly appointed. Wonderful bed and pillows plus Aveda bath products. Lovely stay!
