Steeped in history, and situated on the Magnificent Mile, Chicago’s elegant Knickerbocker Hotel has hosted some of the world’s most famous and infamous guests. Now, it’s your turn.
During Prohibition, the hotel had a casino, operated by Al Capone’s brother; during the 1970’s the Knickerbocker was owned by Hugh Hefner, and operated as the Playboy Towers. Luminaries from JFK to Richard Nixon to the Rolling Stones have enjoyed the Knickerbocker’s warm hospitality.
And only the Knickerbocker can boast Chicago’s most iconic party space, the two-level Crystal Ballroom, with its signature lighted dance floor and dramatic domed ceiling. The staff will make you feel like family, and you’ll have unlimited access to planners who know how to throw a party for royalty.
Your out-of-town guests will enjoy Chicago’s premier shopping and dining on the Magnificent Mile. The brave ones will enjoy the incredible view of the city from the John Hancock Observatory (now renamed 360 Chicago), just steps away.
