The Talbott Hotel

The Talbott Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Built in 1927, the 149-room Talbott is an upscale boutique hotel that retains much of its original grandeur. Far from a dusty relic, the hotel and its large rooms combine antique English decor with modern technology, such as free Wi-Fi and the Apple Mac minis that function as sophisticated controls for the Internet ready 46-inch flat-screen TVs. With its Green-Seal certification, the hotel practices eco-friendly housekeeping and climate control. The ambience and consistently top-notch service fit right in to Chicago's posh Gold Coast neighborhood, with upscale shopping and dinning in every direction. Guests might also want to check out the nearby Whitehall Hotel, which has similar historical, boutique ambience.

Allegro Chicago Hotel

Allegro Chicago Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 438-room Kimpton hotel is located in the heart of the Theatre District, and surrounded by the corporate offices of the Loop. Features are few (there isn't much besides the 24-hour fitness center), but the decor is bright and modern, and freebies include a nightly wine hour and in-room yoga accessories. Though some rooms are on the small side, all have modern amenities: 37-inch flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, Aveda toiletries and mini-bars. For bigger rooms and bathrooms (but fewer freebies), consider the nearby Fairmont.

Hotel Monaco Chicago

Hotel Monaco Chicago Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 192-room Kimpton is located inside a former hat factory in the Loop, and its stylish decor is a mix of Art Deco elegance and bright, quirky boutique flair. Solid freebies, including evening wine and beer hour with entertainment plus morning coffee and tea, help to create an intimate experience. All in all, it's one of the city's best boutiques, even with expensive valet parking and unexceptional bathrooms.

Burnham a Kimpton Hotel

Burnham a Kimpton Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 122-room boutique located in an 1895 building pays homage to its past with cool historic details, including wrought iron, mosaic tiles, and marble stairs. But as in many old buildings, the rooms are teeny tiny, starting at just 175 square feet. At least they come with 37-inch flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, CO Bigelow toiletries, and bold, but stately, decor. Freebies like nightly wine tastings and morning coffee also help compensate, but you can probably find bigger rooms for the price.

Villa D' Citta

Villa D' Citta Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The six-room Villa D’ Citta is a cozy, romantic bed-and-breakfast located in residential Lincoln Park. Its few features are all charming: an outdoor whirlpool and sun deck, a brick courtyard with a barbecue, and a large communal kitchen. The bright, luxurious rooms have big flat-screen TVs and hardwood floors, but they lack iPod docks and safes, and two of them share a bathroom.

Dana Hotel and Spa

Dana Hotel and Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 216-room hotel is an urban retreat with zen decor, a spa, a stylish restaurant, and popular lounge, located three blocks from the Magnificent Mile. The hotel's serene vibe continues into the luxurious rooms, which feature hardwood floors, large, spa-inspired showers, plush beds, and floor-to-ceiling windows or balconies. It's one of Chicago's most luxurious boutiques.

Hotel Palomar Chicago

Hotel Palomar Chicago Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 261-room Hotel Palomar is one of the best Kimpton hotels in the city, and the only one in River North, near the Magnificent Mile. Its lovely indoor pool with a sundeck and its free nightly wine hour are both highlights, and the big, stylish rooms are equipped with iPod docks, 37-inch flat-screen TVs, and Etro bath toiletries. All in all, it's a great pick for the price.

Hotel Felix Chicago

Hotel Felix Chicago Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Chicago's first hotel built to meet Silver LEED certifications for its eco-friendly practices, Hotel Felix merges upscale amenities with renewable furnishings and energy efficiency. It's just off the busy thoroughfares, making it a relaxing spot to stay (with a spa), while it's still an easy walk to the action on the Magnificent Mile, and all of River North's nightlife. The environmentally-conscious will likely appreciate just how thoroughly green this hotel is, if they don't mind small rooms. While it's a central location for tourists, the Felix caters to business travelers, with its comfortable, if somewhat cramped, work spaces, and stylish meeting rooms. The nearby Dana Hotel and Spa doesn't share the sustainable pedigree, but it has similar amenities with larger rooms.

The Sutton Place Hotel Chicago

The Sutton Place Hotel Chicago Rating: 3.5 Pearls

HOTEL IS CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS. IT WILL REOPENT IN AUGUST 2013 AS A THOMPSON HOTEL. This 246-room boutique two blocks from the Magnificent Mile has upscale services like free morning newspapers, 24-hour room service, morning car service, and twice-daily maid service. But the contemporary rooms -- although clean and big -- could use an upgrade (most still have tube TVs). The location is great, but you can often do better for the price.

Best Western Hawthorne Terrace

Best Western Hawthorne Terrace Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 83-room Best Western Hawthorne Terrace is one of the few hotels in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood, a northern residential area that's home to Wrigley Field and Chicago's gay nightlife scene. It's got more charm than you'd expect from a chain hotel -- a brick building covered with ivy, a Victorian-style lobby with a fireplace, contemporary rooms renovated in 2010 -- as well as solid freebies, including Wi-Fi, continental breakfasts and morning newspaper delivery. But it's far from the tourist sights, and lacks a full restaurant, room service, and a business center.
