Best concierge ever (Tiara)10/10

We’ve visited Chicago a few times a year for the last several years, & love the older elegant hotels (I wouldn’t stay in the Trump monstrosity if it was free!). The Knickerbocker didn’t disappoint- surprisingly intimate with the quirks of a hotel built in the 1920’s. Occasional ‘careworn’ points - like leading some paint here & there. But show me a 1920’s building in constant use that doesn’t have the occasional careworn spots (you can’t- such A thing doesn’t exist). Overall, we really liked the Knickerbocker, BUT the best part of our 3-day stay was Tiara the concierge, and the ‘behind the scenes’ tour she leads. The hotel ballroom & 14th floor event spaces, plus the secret stairway, etc. were a fascinating experience, and Tiara is delightful (great suggestions for dining & happy hour). If you stay at the Knickerbocker, chat with Tiara - her infectious enthusiasm will give you a lift. Oh, BTW, the bed was very comfortable too!

"Fabulous place to stay!"

The hotel, restaurant and martini bar were great. Great staff, good food and spectacular drinks. The rooms was spacious and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious. We will definitely come back the next time we are in Chicago.
