Gold Coast boutique meets 1920s charm

The Whitehall Hotel manages that rare combination of location and ambiance. The hotel is situated one block from the Magnificent Mile and Rush Street nightlife district, but tucked away from the tourist fray on a residential street. One of Chicago's oldest luxury hotels but certainly no slouch, the Whitehall brims with 19th century elegance -- imagine chandeliers, wood paneling and tufted leather chairs, all restored to match the original European grace and grandeur of this Gold Coast gem.

Highlights
  • One block from the Magnificent Mile and Rush Street nightlife
  • Walk to John Hancock Center, Water Tower Place, Lake Michigan and Oak Street Beach
  • Dining at Fornetto Mei, a Pan-Italian restaurant
  • Fitness center
Rooms

Chicago's independent boutique Whitehall Hotel, which has hosted guest celebrities like Katharine Hepburn, Richard Burton, Sophia Loren, Paul Newman, The Beatles and Mick Jagger over the years, provides intimate guest rooms and suites decorated with antique mahogany tables and nightstands, wood headboards, down duvets and marble bathrooms. High-speed Internet and wireless access are available in rooms (fees apply).

Features
Guests at The Whitehall Hotel won't have to worry about leaving their dog or cat at home. The hotel welcomes pets less than 20 pounds for a non-refundable deposit. For an upscale casual dining option, dine at Fornetto Mei, which traverses Asia and Italy with its menu of oven-fired, thin crust pizza and house-made pot stickers or sample dumplings at Mei's Corner. A cozy atrium bar welcomes guests and invites sampling of the restaurant's 200 plus global and California boutique wines.

Lovely Boutique Hotel Experience

From the beginning the front desk was extremely helpful when our room plans had to change. The bellman was very friendly also; he made suggestions for public transportation routes to Wrigley Field, as well as walking directions to restaurants close to the Whitehall. We loved the charm of the building and enjoy choosing boutique hotels.

Nice hotel close to Michigan Ave

Spent 2 nights at the Whitehall Hotel while attending a wedding at the Four Seasons. In terms of location it could not have been better. It was literally across the street from the Four Seasons but half the price. If you are in Chicago to shop, it's only a short walk to Michigan Ave. If you're there in summer, it's probably a 5-10 mins walk to the lake. Pros: - Close to Michigan Ave, close to lake - Great value for location - Clean, comfortable room Cons: - Small room (but who goes to Chicago to spend a lot of time in their room) - No free internet We will stay again at this hotel next time we go to Chicago.
