In the heart of the upscale Magnificent Mile, amid shops and restaurants
Right along the Magnificent Mile, an iconic stretch of North Michigan Avenue known for its upscale shopping, the Allerton Hotel is within walking distance of some of the city's top attractions. It's just three blocks from the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Hancock Observatory, and four blocks from Water Tower Place shopping.
Stylish, with high-tech amenities, but some are on the small side
The Allerton's boutique-y rooms received a major, $60 million overhaul in the early 2000s, and the stylish Art Deco-inspired decor honors the history of the 1920's-era building. Rooms are decorated in shades of blue and white, and come with 32-inch flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. The marble bathrooms are cute, with old-fashioned pedestal sinks and (in most) glass walk-in showers with rain showerheads. But the the too-high kick-flush on the toilet is a little awkward.
Since this is a historic hotel, some of the rooms are on the small side; they start at around 200 square feet.
