Every room is on the top floor of the building (40th). Great view, new carpet. Breakfast during the week is eggs and bacon with fruit,bagels, etc. (weekend breakfast is strictly continental).
The bed was slightly squeaky, and the step into the tub was huge (probably hard for a person shorter than 5'6". Staff did not explain the nuances of the hotel (since it's in an office building). Pool/athletic club open minimally on weekends.

Overall a good place to stay, right by the CTA. Tub has about a 1 foot ledge that is knee high to step over (could be hard for elderly/short statured). The front desk staff gave no indication of where breakfast was to be served, found out that during the week it is in one location (athletic club) from the book in room and on the weekend it is in the lounge (only found by chance and snooping). Wonderful views and interesting location if you're a financial person (its on the top floor of the Chicago Stock Exchange building). The neighborhood is so-so, I never felt like I shouldn't be out at night. ...read more

This hotel really is a jewel. It is inexpensive and very fancy. Be sure to use the athletic facilities!

It was a great deal. Close to Printers Row and the Icon movie theater. The workout facility was outstanding and the pool is excellent for any avid swimmer. The continental breakfast was great as well and very fresh.
The only bad thing is that one has to go through the office building lobby to get to the gym.

The view was unbelievable. We actually moved the bed against the windows so we could fall asleep watching the skyline.
Not at all - great hotel

The hotel itself is fantastic. Don't worry over the outdated key (non-electronic), it's charming if you let yourself be positive about it. The view is magnificent, the location is great, the staff is friendly, and after 10 hours of walking around Chicago, the hot tub couldn't be a better end to the day. This is absolutely a hidden gem in downtown Chicago.

Room was nice good view
Location was poor

This hotel was hard to find and in an office building not an actual hotel. Once you get passed all that, the room was great, location very sketchy

I like that it was near the trading floor. The breakfast was excellent. The room view and the view in the dinning area was awesome.
The cleaning ladies forgot to leave toilet paper and did not clean the plastic TV
information guide. It was all sticky. There was also crumbs in the crease in one of the chairs.

The directions to the hotel needed to mention that one should look for the famous horse statue that is mentioned in various independent documentaries about the traders who work in the pits. One should also mention that one can change in the locker area before one uses the pool or whirlpool. That way there is less of a social gaffe when one comes down the elevator to go to the other set of elevators to go to the pool. ...read more

The view from the room was breathtaking.

The Buckingham Athletic Club was beautiful. The classic style and decor was fantastic. The bathroom was large with huge mirrors and large tub. There was a large bay window in the room that overlooked the city and the lake. The view was absolutely beautiful. The complimentary breakfast was decent and the staff was friendly.

Luxury accommodations at a very good price .
Continental breakfast could have been better. Limited athletic club hours on weekends.

Luxurious accommodations in a private club on 40th floor of the building next to the Chicago Stock Exchange. Large room, very nicely furnished. Very quiet--didn't know that anyone else was there until breakfast in the morning.

The location near the Auditorium Theater and the view from the room
The TV was old and hard to work and lacked instructions. Breakfast was lackluster.
