Our Historic Chicago Hotel, A Michigan Avenue Legacy Since The Roaring Twenties
The rich history of the The Allerton Hotel Chicago begins in the roaring twenties when it opens as a residential "club hotel." One of the first high-rises on Michigan Avenue, its beautiful Northern Italian Renaissance architecture stood in contrast to the prevalent Georgian and Tudor Revival cityscape. By the 1940's, when the famous Tip Top Tap sign was first illuminated, our downtown Chicago historic hotel was known around town as one of the most exciting social hot spots. It gained nationwide attention during the 1950's when Don McNeil broadcast a popular radio program from the 23rd floor lounge. Famous Hollywood legends like Bob Hope, Danny Kaye, Ginger Rogers, and James Stewart were featured guests. In June of 1998 the City of Chicago designated The Allerton as an historic landmark and a $60 million renovation project was launched. Today our guests experience the charming history of our property complimented by our luxurious accommodations and state-of-the-art facilities.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, we remain a proud landmark among historic Chicago hotels and invite you to join generations of Windy City visitors in making The Allerton Hotel your home in the heart of Chicago.
