              only stayed one night. Booked out on the Sunday a tatal disappointment

              I have used Booked.net for all my hotels booking but this time it was not the standard described on the web. The hotel is dated.our room was so small the bathroom had hairs in the sink the carpets needed cleaning and it smelt. Tottally spoit the first two days in chicargo

              The staff was exceptional. All were very friendly but not in a "forced way". We will stay at the Knockerbocker next time we go to Chicago.

              Room was a little warm. We had to open the window even though the temps were dipping into the 40's during the night - plus side to this...thank goodness the windows opened!

              Helen the lady at reception was extremely polite and was service orientaited. She went beyond her call of duty.

              The gym was not available. Some of the staff members are not frindly.

              The staff was very helpful. Jeff at the conceige was knowledgeable and Chris (trainee) was eager to find out the answers I was looking for. THE STAFF was excellent

              The valet was service was not very professional.

              Great location. Good value. Modern, clean bathroom with nice shower.

              Some of the common areas like the elevator were a bit worn.

              Spacious rooms. Comfortable beds in 2 x Double bed rooms. Cleanliness of rooms. Location to shops, activities, restaurants and night life. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel emailed us before arriving to ask if we wanted any bookings made before our arrival.

              The shower and the sheets on the bed were so comfortable. It was the best mommy night off.

              The location is close to many major attractions in Chicago. 15-20 minute walk to Navy Pier, and Buckingham Fountain, as well as great restaurants. Staff is very friendly and helpful. They had overbooked the type of room we had reserved but upgraded us to a suite. Great breakfast restaurant.

              Lack of amenities. This hotel is more of a business hotel, not fun/family hotel.

              Downtown, close to everything. Very clean, helpful and courteous staff. Old classic charm with classy modern style..... Loved it!!

              Pillows need to be firmer or at least have an option for firmer ones.

              The staff, from beginning to end, was extremely helpful and pleasant. The concierge was extremely helpful. The room, while on the small side, was very nice and the bed very comfortable. A small thing, but we really appreciated having a light in the closet.

              The air conditioning, going on and off every five minutes (or whatever the time increment was), made it very difficult for a light sleeper such as myself, to get to sleep and stay asleep.
