We had to stay at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel one late night, no reservation. Kwame was at the front desk and treat us very well. He found us a room and matched the price with competitors. Unfortunately, the room was not set up (reason I give 4 stars). Went down, talked to Kwame and he found us another room (upgrade).... More

My wife & I recently spent several nights (over the Thanksgiving holiday) at the Knickerbocker, and were overall pleased with our choice. When compared to other, (often newer) hotels in the area, not only has this "quaint," tastefully updated facility found a happy medium between its Roaring Twenties roots & the present needs of its clientele, but the great (one-block...

I have stayed at the Knickerbocker numerous times and it has always been pleasant. However, on my most recent stay, October 7, I erroneously left a skirt in my room. I would take full responsibility for my loss if my skirt wasn't found by housekeeping. However, I called the hotel the next day and was told they had found my... More

My Husband and I recently stayed at the Milennium Kickerbocker Hotel. The hotel was quaint not one of your large Modern hotels. I loved it's location. Literally one block to Michigan Avenue. They've done a good job at maintaining the hotel charm. I tend to prefer more modern hotels but it was a great change. The rooms were comfortable and... More

Stayed with a friend and really enjoyed the location. Just steps away from Michigan Avenue, great restaurants and the parks, I very much enjoyed walking to the Millennium Park to see their daily summer concerts. Rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious and very comfortable. Breakfast is delicious and great quality! Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Millennium Knickerbocker. The room was perfect- clean, spacious, and comfortable. We stayed in a room with 2 double beds. Walking up and down the magnificent mile to get places was pleasant and if shopping is your main attraction then this is a perfect hotel. However, it was a bit far from many attractions,... More

We stayed on a Wednesday night. Saved some money deciding on this hotel. Check in was a breeze, room was small, but to be expected in an older building. I was impressed with the modern bathroom. Room 814 worked for us & we enjoyed the sliver of lake we could see. Great location. Will stay again.

Stayed in a superior king room over the week - the hotel is located in a prime location! We pretty much walked everywhere we needed to go, 25 min walk was probably the longest we had.

The MK is located in the Near North neighborhood across from the Drake Hotel around the corner from the top of the Magnificent Mile high end shops. Area itself not too interesting but walkable to everywhere else. Hotel was nice, certainly old, rooms themselves were clean and comfortable.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
