"Great location, comfortable."
Right on Magnificent Mile in outstanding location. Staff are polite and helpful, especially concierge who helped to arrange the Chicago River boat tour.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and friendly staff"
Close to many of the tourist attractions. We walked to the Willis Tower, Millenium Park, Navy Pier, and to the beach from this hotel. The staff was very friendly! Would definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Staring at a wall"
The hotel room was small. The view from the room was a red brick wall which rooms on the lower floors opposite from the Michigan Avenue rooms have. One positive, the hotel location is great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to shopping and resturants"
The stay was excellent, could not have asked for better. Room was small, but adequate and quite comfortable. We plan to visit Chicago frequently and would stay at the Allerton because of the accommodations and the location. Could not asked for more service than we received. The breakfast buffet in the hotel was a disappointment - not much choice, limited […] quality of the food and very pricey. We chose not to eat in the hotel after having the breakfast. However, plenty of good locations for dining within walking distance from the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location. tiny rooms. not 4 star hotel"
I got a tiny room, that in order to get from one side of the room to the other you must clime on the bed. had to 'disturb' the bell boys to get some help with the luggage.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great place to stay"
Staff was very helpful. Room very clean. Location was outstanding for walking all over magnificent mile and lakefront.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Better off in modern hotel."
Staff was courteous and knowlegable. Rooms were clean and well appointed. However, view from room was fire escape and aley, lignting was dim in the room itself (OK in bathroom), $10 extra for a very slow internet was of little value, especially when it was shut off at midnight, the restuarant was closed for dinner and there was inadequate lounge space […] when you wanted to get away from your room. Stay at the Swiss Hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Allerton central location"
I stayed at the Allerton because it is so central, right on the corner of Huron and Magnificent Mile. It was great as the handy location made it much easier for me to explore Chicago city.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for Dining and Shopping"
The Allerton is conveniently located to shopping and dining areas. The hotel is very old so in and out with luggage is a bit inconvenient and elevators were very slow and small but to be expected in a building of this age. Room was nice but small and AC not super but suited us fine. I would definitely recommend this hotel to someone who wants convenience […] with a bit of charm. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The hallways are never vacuumed"
Overpriced breakfast, elevators that took forever as usually one was not working. I asked for a shower cap 3 times and never got one. It is well located but who wants to put up with the garbage in the hallways?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel itself is confusing to find at first because although the building is visible from far the entrance is not. The hotel itself looks great and all but the walls are super thin. The family next to the room I stayed in had kids running around and screaming till about 11pm on a Sunday night and after a call down to the front desk and request for […] a room change I was told that there were no more king rooms left and that only rooms near the elevator was left which I didn't believe. Then hbo was advertised on hotels.com and I was looking forward to watching true blood and didn't get a chance to because the had Showtime not hbo. Besides all that the location was great near allot of eating and sights. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Allerton on Michigan"

Hotel was perfectly located in the heart of the Magnificent Mile. Great location to start your day from whatever you choose to do!! The concierge was spot on with every recommendation, the staff was extremely helpful & very personable!! Just a great place to stay!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"What a dump..."
I was initially excited to stay at the Allerton because it was 4.2 stars on Expedia and I got a deal for $100/night. The building is old, the carpet is stained, the internet was terrible, the copy/fax machine in the business center didn't work, the elevators didn't work and I had to walk down 8 flights of stairs with my baggage on my last day to get […] out of there and valet parking is $60/night- which nobody mentioned until I checked out. The windows are thin so you hear the ambulance sirens 8 stories below all day. What a joke - I've had more comforatable experiences camping outside. I will never stay there again. CAVEAT EMPTOR.

"Great location, small room size"
Nice hotel and staff, I would recommend this as central to everythingGenuine Expedia guest review
convenient location for shopping and dining. room was like a matchbox. did like the exercise facility.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great deal for the price."
The room was small, as expected. Could have used a small stand with drawers. We use our largest suitcase for that purpose. The temp was always on the cool side which was great for sleeping, which is what a room is for. Made for a little chill after showering but was fine when dressed. The a desk drawer would have been helpful. The $10 discount for declining […] houskeeping service was a little tricky. It must be used in the lounge or restaurant on the same day. We used the lounge and restaurant on days we did not request the discount but they made an exception and gave us the discount for the day we ate breakfast at the restaurant and the day we met friends in the lounge. It helped buffer the Chicago prices. Great location and there were plenty of food options. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

THE HOTEL IS IN AN EXCELLENT LOCATION. THE STAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY. WE STAYED AT THIS HOTEL A WHILE AGO AND A REFRIGERATOR, MICROWAVE AND COFFEE MAKER WERE IN THE ROOM. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN VERY CONVENIENT. ROOMS ARE SMALL, BUT IT IS AN OLD HOTEL. THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Northwestern University visit"
great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was modern, very clean and comfortable. It was a great place for my visitGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location but....."
The location of Allerton is great, but the hotel needs a facelift. The lobby is nice, but the rooms upstairs and the hallways need a fresh paint job and a good carpet cleaning. The mattresses were horrible, I could feel all of the mattress springs. For the price and location, the hotel management needs to invest in new mattresses, good carpet cleaning […] company and fresh paint. There's no lotion or body wash in the bathroom. The service is slow. For being in the magnificent mile, the hotel management needs to improve in its service. The employees were nice though, especially the valet and outdoor parking attendants Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Rooms are very small. With the single Queen bed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was in a great location. However, the room was extremely cold, despite adjusting the temperature. We had to open the windows to let the hot air in. Also, the bathroom was very small with no vanity space to place any personal belongings.The workout facility was exceptionally nice or a hotel!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

The Allerton is located in a very convenient spot on Michigan Avenue. We like the old hotels better and this one was very comfortable and clean. Updated in appropriate ways.

"Great location, rooms too old"
The hotel has among the best locations in Chicago for vacationing however the elevators are terrible at peak and non-peak hours, and the rooms are very small and old. Very strange odor in our room. The lighting in the room is very low. Hotel needs renovations would stay there again if these things change. Fitness center is pretty good and fully equipped […] and staff at the restaurant really nice Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

our stay was delightful. the staff was friendly and helpful. the hallways and room was clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We've stayed here before but this time was not..."
We've stayed here multiple times and don't even look at other hotels when staying in the Chicago area but this time was a bit different. For starters when we got to our room there was a pile of dirty dishes on the floor in the hall (and when we got up the next morning they had been moved across the hall but were still there). Upon entering the room, […] we found a dirty coffee stir and a used Kleenex next to the bed. There were multiple dark stains in the carpet as well. The bathroom had a tile falling off the wall, wallpaper curling along its edge and a used coaster under the upturned clean water glass. (Being picky- In the halls, the trimwork on our floor had definitely seen better days). We weren't turned off enough to not go back but may look at other hotels before booking The Allerton. (P.S. All of the other staff were amazing as usual). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great location. Clean. Beds and room and simply way too small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was amazing. Staff comfort location and price. Of your going to Chicago stay at the Allerton. It's two blocks away from the Water Tower Place and John Hancock Observatory.

I thought the room was small. The television was in a bad location...should be on the wall between the two windows. The elevator and the hallways were un-air conditioned. I understand the hotel is very old but for the rate I paid...I expected more. Having to go downstairs to get wifi...really?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hit or miss..."
It seemed like a really nice hotel... until we got to our room. If you are below about the 8th floor, you can't see anything other than air conditioners out your window, and our room happened to be on a corner, so it was tiny and cramped. Disappointing...Genuine Expedia guest review
