TripAdvisor Rating


This is a historic Chicago classic hotel built in 1927. Al Capone’s brother once ran a casino on the Penthouse Floor, and in the ’70s, it had a stint as the Playboy Towers. The Windy City landmark has 306 guestrooms and suites and meeting space, including the iconic Crystal Ballroom, complete with illuminated dance floor and gold-gilded domed ceiling. (This is worth of peek, even if you aren’t there for an event).

There is farm-to-table cuisine at NiX onsite. The Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel Chicago is located at the start of the Magnificent Mile and an easy walk to 360 Chicago and the museum of Contemporary Art. There is the standard king and double bed rooms, all the way up to studios and suites.

Did a pre paid room and decided to upgrade. Big mistake! The hotel said $20 a night but fails to convey that they will now double charge you for tax, service and facility fees on the double room ; which you already paid on the pre paid room!

Tack $15 Per night on top of your reservation "facilities fee"

Paid on Cancelon, then asked to pay another $15 per night on top of that fee. Room is dated and small, not really all that great. Booked due to online pictures but I saw nothing that spectacular about the hotel nor the "facilities" I didn't use or find any that were of use. Location is nice but you can get that anywhere. Really not worth the price. Parking is also high if you needed it, we used a parking garage elsewhere. Room quality about the same as a Motel 6.
