I wasn't sure about this place reading the reviews and seeing the affordable price on Expedia, but decided to try it since it was convenient to my office and I was intrigued by the layout and mystery. Others said it's hard to find. It's not. Just easier to find on foot than by car. Is it a traditional hotel with valet parking and bell hop? No. Is it one of the cooler properties and a real discovery for me in Chicago? Absolutely! To find this place while walking through the loop, just look for th... Read more

It is a very different hotel, than the rest of others. First of all the hotel is located on the 40th floor, you can not even find is you are at the right address when you get there. But afterwards when in your room everything is OK, and the view is spectacular, the service is very friendly, very different kind of service from everybody in NYC. The size of the room is perfect. We are still here and will spend two more nights I hope that everything will be the same as of now.

I had a wonderful stay at The Buckingham Hotel. It was very cozy and romantic, and it also had great amenities so that I could stay healthy when away. I loved the gym. It was fully equipped with really modern machines, and there were tons of classes to choose from! I really liked bootcamp! It was also nice to unwind after a busy day in the spa, which had a gorgeous whirlpool and relaxation area. Breakfast was good. Had a great sit down Friday at their restaurant on site. The eggs and fresh ber... Read more

Loved the Buckingham Club. It was on the 40th floor of the Chicago Stock Exchange so the views were stunning. The room was clean, the staff helpful and the breakfast was great. Absolutely no complaints and many compliments.

I enjoyed my stay here. It seems like an office building and they converted the 40th floor into a hotel. The view is amazing from 40th floor!. Rooms are dated but maintained well. The mattress seems to be pretty old and need replacement. It wasn't a satisfying sleep.They give complimentary breakfast but it is probably worst breakfast I've ever saw and I instead had my breakfast from outside. There are not lot of eating places around and it can be a problem for some. However, train line (loop) ar... Read more

We searched long and hard for a nice hotel with a reasonable rate. Located on top of an admin high rise this hotel only has 20 or so rooms. Check in is far from normal as the front desk in the lobby does this task. No fear as the staff were great to deal with. We arrived at 1000pm on a Friday night and were given a quick fun down of facilities. You have full access to gym, pool spa etch. However we were too busy to even have a peek. Staff were knowledgable and very pleasant to deal with. Th... Read more

Really had a great time at this hotel, I have great and ok feelings about this hotel. Everything about this hotel is awesome the location, staff, view, price, gym are all top notch. But there are a few things that I would improve on. The rooms are a little dated, worm spots on towel racks and fixtures just looks cheap. The one or two issues with my room are something that can be fixed easily. One the blinds do not close the main window in room 12 is wide open and the second issue is th... Read more

The staff make this Hotel: Angela at the Front Desk and Merlan in Reservations made our recent stay so successful. The view of Lake Michigan and the Buckingham Fountain from our room was mesmerising. The ease of transport from O‚??Hare airpot on the Blue line was fantastic, and the options from the LaSalle/van Buren station made it so east to get around. There is Deli right behind the front desk area, and a convenience store in the same building: magic. Can‚??t wait to return: the hotel made our... Read more

I selected this hotel because it looked good and was walking distance from the L train from the airport. It's also walking distance to Union a station from where we were departing. Location is brilliant, in the heart of a vibrant city. The lake views from our room were stunning. Room was beautiful and well appointed. Staff greeted us with a smile, thanks Angela, and could not have been more helpful. Breakfast can be had at an independent restaurant in the building and was awesome. $10 discount g... Read more

When we first checked in, front desk clerk gave us breakfast vouchers that she said were only good on Friday & Monday. She neglected to tell us that Monday the breakfast eatery would be closed and most of Chicago in that area would be closed. We had to walk quite a ways to find breakfast. In-room dining had the wrong menu and there was a big conflict ordering out. So once again, we had to walk a ways for dining. Our bathtub handles were old and in need of repair, as was the sink faucet. We... Read more
