Towering over the Magnificent Mile, the Allerton is a central 4-star option for an urban getaway. Its location on Chicago’s main shopping avenue puts it within a five-minute walk of top attractions, such as the Museum of Contemporary Art and the John Hancock Observatory.

Chic and contemporary, the Standard rooms come with queen beds, flat-panel TVs and marble bathrooms. Upgrade to a king bed or opt for an executive room -- they have separate living areas and some have views of the Magnificent Mile. The area can occasionally be a bit noisy, so if possible, we'd recommend requesting a higher room to avoid being disturbed by street sounds.

Built in the 1920s, the hotel’s traditional interiors have recently been given a boutique makeover. Art deco influences are still apparent in the velvet armchairs and shiny side tables, and the color scheme is bright. Hang out in the cozy lobby and check your emails over a free coffee, which is available 7-11 a.m.

The M Avenue Restaurant serves breakfast and lunch, while the M Avenue Lounge features signature martinis and small bites (as well as complimentary Wi-Fi). Although there’s no pool, the hotel does have a small 24-hour gym on site, and it’s four blocks to the river or lake for waterfront runs.

From the press:
  • "If you want to stay in a place in the middle of it all, this is a very good choice" -- Fodor’s
  • "A historic hotel that's gotten a stylish modern makeover, the Allerton's charm lifts it a notch above the standard business-traveler hangout" -- Frommer’s
  • "Standard rooms are by no means large (and the 'classic' rooms are downright tiny), but they can be a bargain off-peak" -- Lonely Planet

Travelzoo disappointed me. I won’t use you again for business travel

Elevators are small and very slow. The room itself was in very need of freshening up. Peeled wallpaper, filthy windows, chipped edges on furniture, dusty corners in room. On the positive, the one regular bed was very comfortable, towels thick and absorbent, plenty of hot water, amazing house keeping staff.

Requested room with two beds. Called four days prior to confirm, was told a notation was in the file for 2 beds. Went to check in and was told only available is one bed with no room for a rollaway. Was told I had no other option. After 20 minutes of getting nowhere and asking to speak to a manager, a different employee, not the manager, came over and found a room with a bed and fold out sofa. At over $200 a night, not what I paid for but better than nothing. Also, no one informed me at check-in of the ongoing strike going on. At 8:00 am both Sunday and Monday morning EXTREMELY loud picketers with vuvuzelas, horns, drums, megaphones, loud enough to clearly be heard up on the 14th floor, marched in front of the front door all morning. You had to yell over them at the second floor reception area.

Had to make two calls to housekeeping to take bugs out of the room. The second call was for a cockroach in bathroom. We did get a free breakfast voucher which was appreciated. Staff apologized and it was taken care of very quickly but obviously off putting.

The location on Michigan Avenue was convenient and within walking distance of all the places we wanted to visit. The rooms were small but nice for the price.
