About the Hotel

Rich History Meets Modern Luxury along Chicago’s Magnificent Mile

Millennium Knickerbocker Chicago offers an ideal base for you to explore the many sides of the city. A short walk will lead you to 360 Chicago, an observation deck showcasing panoramic views of the skyline and Lake Michigan. Also nearby is the Museum of Contemporary Art, offering year-round exhibitions, performances and events. Experience the Magnificent Mile, with countless opportunities to shop, dine, drink and appreciate some of the city’s most iconic landmarks. The Oak Street Beach offers yet another area to explore just a stone’s throw away from the hotel.

Rest and recharge mid-sightseeing in your room at our 4-star hotel. A worthy destination in its own right, our historic hotel opened its doors to excited Chicagoans on May 16th, 1927, after notable architects Rissman and Hirschfield built the 14-story, gothic-inspired gem in less than one year. Later, Al Capone’s brother ran a casino on the Penthouse floor, and in the ’70s, it had a brief stint as the Playboy Towers. Throughout the years, we’ve housed such luminaries as John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon and the Rolling Stones. 

The Georgian-style Crystal Ballroom, with an expansive 25-foot, gilded dome ceiling and graceful balcony, has served as the setting for some of Chicago’s most prominent gatherings, conventions, business meetings and extravagant galas. During the early years of the hotel, guests could watch the famous dance act of Veloz and Yolanda twirl about the illuminated glass dance floor, casting a brilliant spectrum of colors. Now recreated in modern plexiglass, the illuminated floor – the only one of its kind in a Chicago hotel – still dazzles guests after all these years.

Our landmark hotel has 306 guest rooms and suites, and 18,500 Sq Ft (1,719 Sq M) of meeting space, including the iconic Crystal Ballroom.Whatever the style or size of your event, we have a variety of spaces to fit your needs.

“Hotel”

When I travel to Chicago the knickerbocker is alway my first choice to stay! Great greats, great staff and clean rooms along with being in a great location! I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling here!

“Great location; very nice; curiously low price”

Brought a group of 10 to Chicago for meetings & stayed here, because it was (1) a great location a block away from the meeting space (2) well-reviewed and (3) quite reasonably priced. We were a bit cautious because the price was significantly below other downtown hotels. So we expected to find noticeable deficiencies (that we are happy to overlook for such a lost price). Not the case: we loved it. It was clean, well-appointed, efficient... and soo well located. No complaints at all. We've used other nearby hotels and would rate this one as good as or better than significantly higher priced hotels.

“A relax day after working C2E2 comicon”

From the minute the accommodating doorman brought in our numerous, bulky luggage items, to super-friendly porters, Dwayne and Craig, we knew we're chose a great hotel. Love the character of older, architectural hotels. Craig was a hoot and his sense of humor was refreshing. Hope to stay here again.
