The Story

At Kimpton Hotels, "every hotel tells a story." The story at Hotel Burnham, a National Historic Landmark, is one of architecture. Whether it's the thoughtful foundation of your stay or a blueprint for future visits to Chicago, we want your experience at Hotel Burnham to be truly historic.

From the exterior's carefully restored façade to the interior's original marble columns, terrazzo floors and ornate elevator grills, Hotel Burnham is a landmark "Chicago School" building and icon, and an important one in the history of architecture. Guests of the Hotel Burnham will experience the vision of forward-thinking architects of times gone by - Daniel Burnham, John Root and Charles Atwood. Using a radical steel and glass design, they created the Reliance Building in 1895, ushering in a new era of building design and setting the precedent for the modern skyscraper, forever changing the field of architecture.

Today, the historic Reliance Building is home to the Hotel Burnham, providing award-winning accommodations in true Chicago style.
