Grand old hotel, we’ll maintained. Sure wish it had a dinner restaurant, although you can get a decent meal at the bar. The rooms are a little small but that’s to be expected in an older property. Great beds!

Review of Knickerbocker Hotel

Pros: location and price
Cons: brighter light bulbs; fix beside lamp that is tilting off of its base; exhaust fan in bath
Location: downtown chicago nearby; can do anything (shop, walk, tours, museums, cruises on lake michigan).
PROS: Close to downtown; taxis available; very comfortable bed. CONS: Room needs brighter lighting (LED?); exhaust fan in bathroom; A/C that works efficiently; and housekeeping that stays out when the Privacy Placard is displayed.

Owners have invested the absolute minimum. No comparison to what it was like a few years ago. Lipstick on the pig.

Hotel was great. Good location. Room was nice.

Pros: Great staff. Nice, older hotel.
Cons: More sound proof doors.
Location: Great location. We were able to walk to list of restaurants.
Room was a bit noisy. I could hear other doors closing. At 1:30 am I heard yelling and then a door closing, which woke me. The staff was great. Very good service.

Extreme valet parking

Hotel was great but valet parking charge was almost as much as the room....that’s ridiculous especially when they don’t allow guests to park their own cars.
