Concierge.com's insider take:
For a historic stay with a dash of flash, the Burnham is the place. Named for famed Chicago architect Daniel Burnham, this 122-room Kimpton boutique hotel is tucked into a landmark former office building (one of the city's first skyscrapers) with a prime State Street address, across from Macy's. Many of the structure's original details—marble wainscoting on ceilings and walls, terrazzo floors, mahogany trim, and ornamental elevator grills—were preserved during the 1999 renovation. Clubby, European-style guest rooms, once the building's offices, are splashed in gold and navy blue with velvet headboards, sateen bedspreads, and mahogany writing desks. Rooms on the northeast corner have the best views. Its Atwood Café has delicious comfort food—go for one of the signature pot pies. Pets are welcome.
