Hotel Burnham delivers what you expect of a Kimpton hotel - helpful staff, comfortable room, beautiful public spaces, and a nice location.
Service was cordial and competent throughout my stay. Check-in was easy and fast. I forgot a couple items, mentioned it to housekeeping, and they were at my door within minutes. Bellmen were quick to give tips and directions.
Room was comfortable. It might have felt tight with two people, worked fine solo. Wifi is a nice benefit of being part of the Kimpton Plus program. Of course, it was clean.
Public spaces are beautiful. Burn ham is a landmark building, well restored. The Atwood feels like a classic downtown restaurant, fun bar, and accommodating to solo visitors. Fitness room isn't much, a few tired machines in a small space. If a health club is important to you, probably better to go with one of the chains.
Location works for business and touring around. It's a few blocks' walk to into the financial district. Heading in the opposite direction, you hit the lake and Millennium Park, and just south of there, the Art Institute. Terrific running for miles along the water. All worked for me. But I can see someone wanting to stay near Watertower Place, Michigan Ave. shopping, and Rush Street saying Burnham's too long a hike, and picking a place north of the Loop.
Same as all Kimpton hotels, Burnham is a good deal. Not a budget place, but less than the chains, and way less than the super-luxury places. I liked it a lot, and will stay on my next visit.
