Reviewed yesterday NEW

The building is historic, from the Chicago school designed by Daniel Burnham. The renovation on the upper floors respects his legacy. The rooms are not large but have everything you need and then some. Twin duvets on the bed make me feel at home. The stuffed dog was cute, robes wonderful and the do not disturb sign is funny. Second...

It was the first time that I have been in Chicago. This nice hotel is just in the Loop of the city. My room was very confortable and furniture was very nice. People of the staff were nice too. One disappointing thing was that my room was a little bit noising as I could hear the railway trains passing almost...

Loved it. Located downtown (walking distance to the 'BEAN'). Very cozy and clean rooms! Beds are very comfortable and free WIFI is available! Stuff was absolutely friendly and available whenever needed. The in-room dining is simple but tastes good. All in all: If you need a Hotel in Chicago I would go for THE ALISE!!!

I arrived very late at night and coming down with a cold, and was greeted by warm friendly smiles and a quick check-in. The room was spotlessly clean. The bed was the most comfortable I have ever experienced in a hotel room, especially the pillows. Just perfect. There are plugs where you need plugs, and lights where you need lights....

The location, staff and room were great! The king room we stayed in was really nice but probably a little small if there are more than 2 people or if you have kids. Close to trains, shopping, and food.

The hotel is in a great location and is architecturally lovely. It's one block from blue line to/from airport. We had a clean and quiet room with a nice view. The water temp varied a lot and at times wasn't hot enough for bathing. The most memorable annoyance involved the wood frame on our king-size bed. The room was small...

Stayed at The Alise hotel for a long weekend in Chicago. I highly recommend getting the stay and park package. This saves time and energy looking for a place to park and is cheaper than paying separately. The hotel is located in between a few different L train stops, which makes getting around Chicago very easy. If you're in town...

We originally booked 6 rooms at the Burnham Hotel, housed in the historic Reliant Building gloriously located downtown in the Chicago Loop. Then the hotel was sold to the Pineapple Group (seriously?) and renamed the Alise. So, the transition was fine and we arrived to experience Pineapple hospitality. I was impressed. The front desk staff was great. Darnell was a...

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
