Knickerbocker is located at a very convenient location and was a fairly quiet hotel compared to a few I've been to before. Everything is within walking distance - waterfront, well-known restaurant chains, convenient store, malls, etc. Upon our arrival on our first day (Friday) and departure on the 3rd day (Sunday), the service at the reception has been great. If you're always out and about exploring the city, this hotel will definitely meet your needs.

I came here to stay with my sister to get her settled in before she started summer camp. I usually stay at Hilton properties because I have a membership, but because there was some event happening (I think it was related to the WWE but I was more concerned about the price of everything), all of the hotel prices were pretty jacked up. I felt lucky enough to snag a room that wasn't going for like $500 a night here. I wasn't expecting anything because I had never stayed at any Millennium properties before, but I was very pleased with my stay! As soon as my sister and I got out of the cab, we were offered help with our luggage by a doorman. We couldn't check in early because our room wasn't ready yet so we stored our luggage. When we came back and checked in, a staff member immediately brought us our luggage and also helped deliver the packages we had mailed in advance (which was free of charge!!!). This kind of wonderful service was consistent throughout our entire stay! The only complaints I had were that the lighting was a little on the dim side, the shower pressure wasn't as strong as I would've preferred, and the room felt slightly cramped because of all of the furniture in the room, but that's really me being nitpicky. If you're looking to shop, the hotel is conveniently located near Water Tower Place, The Shops at 900, and a bunch of other stores. There are also a bunch of lovely Italian places conveniently located a couple minutes away! All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel if you're going to Chicago!

I've stayed here a few times now. While it's not as good as some places in the city, it's a decent value. The staff was courteous and helpful. Our room was clean, well kept and relatively quiet. A couple of areas for improvement might be climate control. Since I have pretty bad allergies, I usually keep the windows closed in the spring. The inflexible HVAC system however simply goes into heat only mode when the temp drops below a certain threshhold. While it was in the 50s outside, our room was stuffy upper 70s. I tried opening the window, but went into a sneezing fit. I called the front desk to see if there was s solution where I leaned about their system. The Knickerbocker was built when folks with allergies just had to tough it out. :D I also didn't care for the sliding bathroom door. It wasn't quite private, with this big gaping gap that my toddler kept peeking and reaching into. Try to get a street side room as the back side of the building is a big ugly view of mechanicals and the back side of the much bigger westin. Still the interior i lovely, the staff is mostly great, and one lil gem is the restaurant. We had brunch there and I think I may have had the best Eggs Benedict I've ever had.
