I booked this via Priceline and yes the room was very small but very nice and newly updated and fine for 2 people. Bed was super comfy and loved the shower! Great location also. Parking was expensive at $50/night but very convenient to just pull up and unload and have them park the car. In Chicago you are going to pay for parking no matter where you stay especially downtown.

Pros: Newly renovated rooms

Cons: Parking expensive

Upon arrival I was struck by the majestic facade of the Knickerbocker. The single rooms are intimate and cozy and great for couples. What I found to be alarming was when I was harassed over overnight parking: the front desk member tried to contact me by phone and I did not respond. The front desk member then knocked on my door and I still did not respond, so, then he opens the door while I am "in my most intimate of moments." I told him to please close the door and I notified the manager. After letting out a little anger with the manager I was compensated fairly with complimentary drinks at the bar and breakfast for the next morning. The drinks at the bar were phenomenal and were priced from $8-$18 respectively. The breakfast at the hotel restaurant "NIX" was exquisite. The omelette with Emmer (real Swiss cheese) and asparagus was phenomenal while the Breakfast Americana filled me up with breakfast potatoes, bacon, eggs, sausage, and toast. The coffee was richly smooth and the service of all the guests were like that of no other. The manager Kevin Walsh was excellent and overly accomodating. The nearest attractions include: The Drake Hotel, Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Barney's, Bloomingdales, Gibson's Steak House, Le Passage Night Club, Water Tower Mall, The John Hancock, Water Tower Monument, Loyola University Chicago, Apple Store, Garmin, Ralph Lauren, Bentley Gold Coast, Hershey's Chicago, Ghirardelli, Cartier, Tiffany, Hugo Boss, Kenneth Cole, La Perla, Guess, Eddie Bauer, The Gap, American Girl, The Cheesecake Factory, Rosebud Italian Dining, Jake Melnick's Bar, Subway, Starbucks, and McDonalds... Need I say more??? The length of stay was 4 days 3 nights and because of the blistery cold weather I didn't mind staying in.... Another thing: If you're going to bring a vehicle don't forget to calculate the $48/day cost of valet which gives in-and-out priveleges. Tip at your discretion!

Pros: Staff highly accomodating

Cons: Staff can be too invasive at times

The hotel is pricey, but you get what you pay for. This is an old facility which has been renovated to included modern technology. In the heart of the loop.

This hotel was so awful. The front desk was very busy and they sure made you feel as if you were a big inconvenience. The rooms were wallpapered in gawdy old wallpaper. The bedspread truly needed replacing as it was worn and stained. The room was very small and you could barely open the bathroom door due to lack of space. The bed was the worst I have slept in. Considering over 20 Chicago hotels I have stayed in, this is the bottom of the barrel of "luxury" hotels.

My hubby and I spent our 10 year anniversary here in mid-November. The hotel had a great cookie and hot chocolate reception in the lobby with costumed carolers. We enjoyed the carolers and the kids staying in the hotel loved the cookies! The room was very small but clean and you really can't beat the location. Staff was okay but not as helpful as I would have liked and the onsight restaurant just "so-so." The room was one of the nicer ones I've stayed in but the hallways seemed like they needed new carpet and fresh paint.

Pros: Nice ambience at Christmas

Great value for the location. You are right off the path of Michigan Ave. and at the begining of the Magnificent Mile. Note, this is not a modern establishment and has vintage charm and overall is a great experience and value for the location.

I checked into th Millenium Knickerbocker with my new bride for a few days. It was very dissappointing to say the least. We ended up checking out early even though we had prepaid on the internet. They had told us we were upgraded to a suite due to our special occasion. The room was awful (on the 5th floor - room 517 to be exact). It didn't smell clean and the bathroom floor was filthy. We were not comfortable walking without shoes or flip-flops. We are not the type of people to raise hell - we simply checked out early. They offered another room, but we did not feel comfortable there. Don't let the address fool you. I travel quite a bit and have only checked out like this a few times in my life. It was just very dissappointing right after our wedding. Check in at your own risk.

The bartender at Rosebud across the street recommended the lobby bar at the Kinckerbocker. She was right on! The bartender was really friendly and took great care of us! I would definitely go again!

The hotel is definitely nice, and definitely expensive. The location can't be beat! I felt like the staff here was very helpful and courteous--they knew what they were doing! The amenities were great too. The breakfast bar in the coffee shop wasn't too bad either. I didn't like the bathroom in my room though. Very small.

We spent the weekend at the Knickerbocker & had a great stay. As soon as we stepped out of our cab, we were treated wonderfully. The rooms are comfortable & the location is ideal.

We immediately felt at home once we stepped into the lobby. Of all the luxury hotels we have stayed in across the U.S., there is no finer, warm staff. Our rooms were beautifully furnished and, yes, the bathrooms are small but adequate. This hotel has an historical ambience and those looking for modern/stainless/glassy new-age accommodations should stay elsewhere. Any negative reviews about the Knickerbocker are full of hot air. Stay there but don't reserve my favorite room!

Cons: restaurant - yucky

Having your server come back to the table 4 times to ask what the drink order was and having the check presented because the waiter is leaving is something i would not expect from a downtown hotel. Snacks were not provided and the service was the poorest I have had in a long time.

The Ballroom is breathtakingly gorgeous--They don't make 'em like they used to!! The Knickerbocker is a well-preserved hotel--excellent staff, excellent food...the rooms are quaint and comfortable. i loved it all.

The Knickerbocker is a great break from the monotony of the big hotel chains. Business travelers with a sense of charm will enjoy this hotel!

Not your typical cookie cutter hotel. The rooms have a very romantic feel with the rich colors and unique textures. The location is also a major plus for any kind of traveler.

Very nice hotel, my only complaint is when we made the reservation we were told that we would be on the club floor that included evening cocktails and breakfast. When we checked in we were on a different floor. After a number of complaints and different stories, they came up with certificates for breakfast and an appetizer at the bar.

After a multi-million dollar guest room renovation, the 304 guest rooms and 20 suites have been transformed into more sleek and modern accommodations. All of the expected amenities are there. Still, most stay at this hotel for the meeting…
