The Allerton Hotel Chicago Review

Named a National Historic Landmark in 1999, this limestone building was a residential "club hotel" for men when it opened in 1924; a renovation restored the limestone facade and left it with a more contemporary, residential feel. The bed linens are white with navy piping, and the rooms are styled with a mix of blues, white, and yellow. If you want to stay in a place in the middle of it all, this is a very good choice.

    We wanted a decently priced hotel room (is there such a thing in Chicago?). We chose to stay here because of the location and price but were a little nervous about the reviews. The hotel is quaint, we enjoyed the historic feel, better than the new more modern, "plastic" hotels. Our room was small but cozy, the staff were pleasant, and we couldn't have asked for a better location. We saw several other unhappy customers when we were there, from the check in reservation desk, another person in front of us in line complained about a staff person smoking in her nonsmoking hallway, and yet another person complained about his meal bill while we were in the elevator. The unhappy people were vocal and shared their displeasure with everyone around them. We were fortunate, all went well for us and Yes, we would return!

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
