Across from Macy’s on State Street and a block from the theater district, the Burnham Hotel brings a boutique vibe to classic Chicago architecture. Set in the Reliance Building, an 1895 precursor to the modern skyscraper, the hotel blends a classic private-club vibe with the smart service and creative touches of a Kimpton property.
Bed & Bath
Each of the 122 rooms were recently renovated, highlighting big windows framing fantastic downtown views. Guestrooms feel restful, thanks to rich hues, warm wood furnishings and Frette linens. Bathrooms have tub-shower combos and Bigelow bath products.
The Atwood Restaurant serves up American comfort food under impressive 18-foot ceilings; floor-to-ceiling windows look out onto the bustle of the Loop. Twenty-four-hour room service keeps the returning-from-the-bars crowd happy, while breakfast on weekdays starts at 7 am for business types. Work it off at the 24-7 fitness center or schedule an in-room massage.

How to Get There
Great hotel. Very comfortable. Ordered the wine and choc for the room. Brought the wrong offer and double billed me for it. Still no refund on one. More taken from account than what the receipt sent to me says.
This hotel is in a beautiful and nicely renovated 1890s office building, and many original architectural details remain. We were able to check in a little early (without our bag) and found a tidy and compact room. Ventilation is strong (no steam in the bathroom during showers). The bathroom thoughtfully included a night light for middle of the night trips to the potty. The bed was very comfortable, and the duvets proved more comfortable than imagined. All the rooms have nice views. There's a busy and attractive restaurant at the street level (which we didn't utilize). We wouldn't change a thing.
This Hass to be one of the best boutique Hotels in Chicago. They do everything at this hotel just right. It’s a great quiet hotel with solid walls solid floors it is very quiet. We really did love our stay.
