U.S. News Review

Many say The Allerton Hotel's best feature is its perch on the Magnificent Mile — at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Huron Street — but they're overlooking the hotel's historic appeal. This boutique hotel has been welcoming Chicago visitors since the 1920s, and although guest rooms here may be smaller than at competing hotels, travelers say that the hints of history here are worth acknowledging. First opened as a club hotel, The Allerton Hotel transformed into one of the Windy City's hottest hangout spots; by the 1950s (after the famous Tip Top Tap sign was installed), the property had welcomed the likes of Bob Hope, Danny Kaye and Ginger Rogers. Today, the hotel strives to accommodate guests in the same fashion. Rooms have received an upgrade since the glory days and now house contemporary amenities like Wi-Fi access (for a fee), flat-screen TVs and minibars. Meanwhile, travelers highly recomend a meal at the hotel's M Avenue Restaurant, which specializes in seasonal local cuisine. You'll also find numerous neighborhood eateries within walking distance of The Allerton.
