    “Mag Mile Old World Charm”

    I upgraded to a really large corner room with a view out onto the street in front, Well worth the extra money. I walked in and the entrance is separated from the bedroom.with a large beautiful bathroom to the right, a table to put things on in the middle, and a closet and nice dressing area to the left. The bedroom has two large windows giving lots of natural light and the deco and modern furniture gives the feel of slick nostalgia. Everything was very tasteful and well thought out. The mattress and linens on the bed were of really high quality. The temperature of the room was easy to maintain with the thermostat. The bathroom had a tub with a rain shower, or you could use a hand held wand sprayer. The location is great since it is half a block from Michigan Avenue and one block from the best beach on Lake Michigan. The Front Office Manager, Candice, was very helpful with answering all my questions and suggesting places to eat and shop. She went above and beyond to help with anything we needed. I will definitely go back for the "old world charm" and feeling of history and nostalgia you get at a luxury hotel like the Knickerbocker.

    “Beautiful, Historic and Updated”

    We have stayed here many times over the years, and we chose The Knickerbocker again in March of 2021. These are Covid times travelers; things are not the same and won’t be for awhile. Enjoy the pricing while you can and know that you are sacrificing at the same time. You can’t have both. The staff is bare bones, but the hotel remains beautiful. True, there are no amenities available at this time, but strolling around the neighborhood offers all of the dining and drinking a visitor could hope for. We were lucky enough to be checked in by Anita (also working accounting as the staff is so sparse) at an awkward time of the mid morning. She went out of her way to find us one of our two rooms so we could store our luggage before going out on our tours. She saved our day and even upgraded us. Then, we were lucky to meet the Manager of Sales and Marketing Michael Wallace who allowed us a quick peak of the property’s incredible ballroom while providing a brief history of all the happenings there over many years. We won’t stay anywhere else in Chicago. Please understand The Knickerbocker, like much of the world, is just getting back on its feet. If you want normal service and amenities, wait a while and ride things out at home. But this remains a Chicago gem and deserves accolades regardless of the times.

    “Fantastic 4th of July Weekend!”

    Once we arrived checking in was efficient and easy. We stayed in the Superior Double Room. The room was spacious and very clean. My favorite feature in the room was the ceiling shower head. The hotel followed Covid-19 protocols with guest wearing mask, providing hand sanitizer, adhering to physical distancing, and allowing limited guest to use the elevator at once . Jason, the manager, professionalism and attentiveness was superb! He wanted us to have the best experience at the Millennium Knickerbocker! This was an amazing location to relax and explore the great city of Chicago!
