The independently-owned Whitehall Hotel is Chicago's answer to the quirky boutique hotel, with a prestigious list of past guests that includes Katharine Hepburn and Mick Jagger. The Whitehall has been around since the 1920s, and maintains a combination of European-inspired charm and warm Midwestern hospitality, from the plush upholstered lounge-seating to the dark wood paneling and sparkling chandeliers. Feast on steamed dumplings and other Asian bites at Mei's Corner, or drink in the same seats that the Beatles once graced in the Whitehall Lounge. Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel (fees may apply) brings you back into the 21st century, though personal services like the overnight shoeshine retain that vintage feel.

Very nice

The hotel was very, very nice, very upscale in my humble opinion. The parking was a bit expensive, but I realize that there was really no other alternative, and the parking lots were independent of the hotel, so not much could be done. I didn't think to ask if they validated parking, so that might have saved me some money. I guess I'll never know, but make sure you ask.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Try to find a place that validates parking, and if you're not staying downtown the entire time, try to park for less than ten hours.

Marvelous location

I came to chicago for vacation, I chose the Whitehall for its location and affordable price. this is my second time there and if I go again I will not hesitate to stay at it. One thing that I needed and was not available is a universal adapter to charge my cell phone since I traveled overseees.

Great couple of nights..

Single, in town for conference. took the Whitehall with deal on Orbitz as opposed to conference hotel and their prices. Quiet room, even though right by elevators. Awesome location. Walk to the young fun at the Rush Street bars, only a couple of blocks to the "chicago st." train stop -- easy walk up and down all the stores and restaurants -- all at an Orbitz price way below anything in the area.
