Classic style on Magnificent Mile

Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel Chicago is the epitome of classic Chicago style, located just off Magnificent Mile – a famous stretch that’s home to over 400 retailers and high-end shops.

Modern American-style dining awaits you at NiX Restaurant. Chicago is known for its pizza, which is why you can even find it on our breakfast menu. Or if you’d like something a little more classic, you can build your own burger at lunchtime.

The refinement continues at the Library Tea Room at Martini, where you can while away the hours with the choice of either a traditional or Asian Afternoon Tea. One comes with warm scones and a healthy portion of clotted cream, and the other gives you the chance to try a variety of dim sum, among other delectable treats.

    Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel Chicago has the enviable position of being right around the corner from The Magnificent Mile and many other iconic Chicago attractions. You can start your trip by getting a unique over of the city with a trip to 360 Chicago observation deck, which is only three minutes away from the hotel.

      “Special hotel with lots of charm”

      We arrived early but were allowed to check in. The rooms are a bit small but very comfortable.the lobby was decorated very beautifully for the holidays. We spent a few hours at the martini bar. Our drinks were fabulous as was our attendant. Everyone at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. Our biggest regret was we couldn’t stay longer. We will be back for sure.

      “Very comfortable stay!”

      Flew in for thanksgiving and do touristy things. Couldn’t have asked for a more comfortable stay at the Millenium! The bed was so comfy and the pillows soft! Just what I needed after a busy day walking around Chicago! Very clean room with plenty of space! Also no noise from outside which was good! Staff were friendly and helpful! Would definitely return when visiting Chicago again!

      “Excellent Service!”

      I stayed here for two nights this past weekend. I highly recommend this hotel for it’s convenience, comfort, economy and fantastic location! It is also upscale and elegant! I’d also like to recognize a special housekeeping employee, Scipien Samba, for her friendly service and detailed attention when cleaning my room and for finding my lost jewelry bag and leaving it for me on the bed with a note! I greatly appreciate her honesty and integrity, and I look forward to staying here when I’m in Chicago!
