About the Hotel
Originally named the Davis Hotel, Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel Chicago first opened its doors back in 1927. It became the Playboy Hotel in the 1970's, with tales of a speakeasy on the 14th floor during prohibition. Nestled at the gateway to Chicago's famed Magnificent Mile downtown, this landmark hotel is within walking distance of major attractions including Water Tower Place, Michigan Avenue, 360 CHICAGO (formerly known as John Hancock Observatory), Navy Pier, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
With 306 finely-appointed luxurious guest rooms and suites, Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel Chicago is convenient yet quiet. Guests can indulge in Midwestern dishes at Nix Restaurant or take a nod to history and have a 1920's inspired cocktail at the famous Martini Bar.
Each year, this downtown Chicago hotel accommodates a range of meetings, events, and social gatherings throughout its 18,500 square feet of flexible meeting space, complemented by a dedicated catering team. For a memorable event, the famed Crystal Ballroom with its built-in illuminated dance floor, gilded domed ceilings and crystal chandeliers promises a perfect setting, while junior ballroms and smaller breakout rooms offer alternatives for business meetings or social gatherings, large or small.
