Millennium Knickerbocker Chicago
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- Half a block from Michigan Avenue and a mile from Navy Pier
- The lobby ballroom maintains a splendid, jazz-age grandeur
- Find some shoreline in the Midwest: Oak Street Beach is about two blocks away
From lobby to penthouse, the Millennium Knickerbocker Chicago hotel is steeped in history. The lobby maintains its original 1927 opulence, with double-height ceilings, arched windows and wrought-iron balconies. Sneak a peek at the crystal ballroom, a splendid, barrel-vaulted hall dripping with gilding and crystal chandeliers. Another oak-paneled banquet hall on the 14th floor used to be a casino reputedly run by Al Capone's brother, and still has a secret escape stairwell to the street.
The rooms are clean, bright and contemporary, with smart TVs and coffee makers plus marble-tiled bathrooms with rainfall showers. Guests interested in the hotel's lurid history -- which includes a stint in the 1970s as Hugh Hefner's Playboy Towers -- can take one of the property's weekly tours. The in-lobby Martini Bar offers a 1920s-inspired cocktail menu with over 50 varieties of the namesake cocktail to choose from, plus a midday tea service.
The hotel is just around the corner from Michigan Avenue, which has some of the city's best shops, and Oak Street Beach is just a few blocks north. A view of Chicago's most iconic landmarks is steps away at 360 Chicago at the John Hancock Center, an observation deck with panoramic views of the skyline and Lake Michigan.
