Friendly Staff, Great Location! 10/10

The hotel stay was comfy and needless to say the location is great! Almost everything worthwhile is at walking distance (Shopping, Restaurants, Park, River, to name a few). Most importantly the staff was friendly and welcoming! To mention some of them: 1. Craig: Awesome personality, fun to talk with, and works really hard to get what you need and tries to be of service in any way he can. It was such a great pleasure meeting you and stay true to yourself always! 2. Henry: Go to him to help you with great recommendations for places to visit. He helped my friend by recommending a really good and professional dentist for her tooth problem. Can’t thank you enough buddy! As for the rest of the staff , they were all friendly and greeted us with a big smile on their face, a feeling that makes you feel at home. It was such a great experience, can't wait come back again! Thank you!

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.

Meetings and Events



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. You're sure to make the right first impression with an event at one of the most famous hotels in Chicago.

 

On-site Dining

Drink in the 1920’s cocktail menu at Martini Bar,where you'll be spoiled for choice with over 50 varieties of Martini to choose from. 

For some of the best breakfast and lunch in town, head to NiX Restaurant, where guests can enjoy everything from avocado toast to fresh homemade soups and classic American burgers.

"The receptionist "Amir" was very friendly and also extremely helpful !!"

I have made a reservation at Knickerbocker hotel for 1 night for 2 adults. Once, I arrived I found out that my reservation was for a king bed room! The receptionist, his name is "Amir" told me: there was no two-bedroom left since I checked in late. I was disappointed and unsatisfied for taking that room, but I had no choice at that moment. After taking the room keys, Amir called and asked me to come back to the reception. I found out that he made an arrangement with other guest who checked in after us and had a reservation with two-bedroom. Also, the breakfast was not included in my reservation. Amir sent us a couple breakfast voucher good for american breakfast for each. He was amazing and made our staying enjoyable !!

"Mini reunion"

A group of us get together every summer somewhere and this year it was Chicago. We chose the Knickerbocker due to location. Great spot and even better hotel. Staff is attentive and outgoing. The rooms are great. Easy access to many great spots downtown Chicago by walking, bus, train, or cab. One of the bests spots to be to enjoy the city.
