Hotel Burnham - a Kimpton Hotel Chicago Reviews
Great Location, Typical Big City Price Aug 14, 2009
I stayed at the Hotel Burnham for my TravBuddy meetup in Chicago on August 14, 2009.
The Hotel Burham is in a convenient location on the corner of State St. and West Washington. For my purposes it was extremely nice because it was 5 blocks or so Ogilvie Station, which is where my commuter train stopped. It is also just 2 or 3 blocks from Milennium Park. This hotel is south of the Chicago River and close to places like Grant Park, Milennium Park, The Art Institute, Field Museum, Soldier Field, etc.
This hotel is not as convenient to things such as the Water Tower area including the Hancock Building. It is near to a subway stop on the red line, so a straight shot up to Wrigley Field if that's your pleasure.
The room itself was fairly small, which I've found commonplace in giant cities. The place was clean and well-presented. The traffic buzzing by on Washington and State Streets below was something I noticed initially, but got used to pretty quickly. Again, that's pretty common for downtown hotels in a city like Chicago.
I was highly amused by the stereo system they had in the room. It had a cassette tape deck in it, which is something I have not seen in a number of years.
As with any hotel in downtown Chicago the nightly rate is typically high. Deals can be found if you look, but generally in that area it's going to be a bit pricey.
