8.0 Great
This is an historic building, so it is old. But it is kept up fairly well, and the rooms are very nice. Large TV, fully tiled bathrooms, very comfortable beds. The only thing that kept me from giving an excellent rating is that the hotel seems fairly thin on staff. No real concierge, no doorperson, no daily room service. And the restaurants that were off the lobby are all closed. I get it — post COVID. Would I stay again? Definitely. The location and room quality make this a great value.
4.0 Mediocre
No restaurant, no coffee or microwave in room. Very small room with Queen bed. No parking. ( paid $85.00 to park..). Evening staff did the bare minimum.
4.0 Mediocre
Pros:I was the only one in our group that liked the old school feel the room had to offer. The others thought it was tacky and incredibly outdated. The location was fantastic for our first tour of Chicago as well!!!
Cons:The glasses inside of the room had lipstick on them. I reported this to the lady behind the desk and I do not think she believed me. She gave me a pack of plastic cups and sent me on my way. This was fine but the reaction was not as I expected. It was as if dirty dishes in the room was a common occurrence. The pillows felt worn out and chunky, the bed was very hard (good for me, not the others in the group) and the lighting needs improvement. It felt like I was a cave dweller the entire stay. The fitness room was an absolute joke. Rusted benches, worn down treadmills and a filthy environment. Whitehall really dropped the ball on the only amenity offered. The lack of care and passion put into the hotel will be the reason I do not return. I suggest you do the same.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Warm welcome very polite staff. They greeted my dog Zeech as well. He had a great time and also liked the view.
Cons:If I could have stayed longer.
9.1 Excellent
Pros:Location. Cleanliness. Room size. Comfortable bed.
Cons:Would hope to get a better view for the expense. Also, would have helped to know facilities such as the gym were closed due to COVID.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:The room was great!
Cons:Nothing really
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Great spot for seeing a play at Broadway playhouse and eating Francesca!! Loved it!
Cons:I have no recommendations. Everything i needed was there!!
9.4 Excellent
Pros:Location was awesome. Staff was excellent.
Cons:The bar didn’t open till 4pm. The carpet in the room was kind of dirty. I couldn’t let my son crawl around on it. Very cool hotel though.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:location bed/sheets/pillows very comfy shower/bathroom bar
8.8 Great
Pros:Location was excellent and bed was super comfortable!
Cons:Parking at the hotel was $65 a night and didnt find this out till I saw a $533 charge on my room. At no point did they mention it.... also its $10 if you want a microwave in your room which I feel is a cheap trick for a hotel like this.
