Overview

Highly reviewed on-site restaurant
Small, outdated guest rooms

This landmark hotel in the Near North section of Chicago – just a block from The Magnificent Mile –offers a taste of European elegance in the midst of the city's windy bustle. Guests particularly love The Whitehall Hotel's demure sophistication, which emanates from its antique furniture and abundance of artwork. However, bear in mind that because this is an older property, guest rooms tend to be on the smaller side, which can be a deterrent for visiting families. That said, each accommodation offers a vintage aura without sacrificing convenience, sporting Egyptian cotton linens, complimentary wireless Internet access, a flat-screen HD TV and mahogany furniture. Guests say that the 2013 renovations paid off, describing the look and feel of this hotel as cozy and stylish, though some think more could have been done. However, recent visitors assure that the on-site restaurant, Fornetto Mei, and friendly service staff (the doormen, especially) more than make up for any lingering issues.
