A Wonderful Place to Stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The location was excellent for what we had in mind. Close to Trader Vic's at the Palmer House, Millenium Park, the Art Institute, Marshall Fields window displays, shopping, food.
We walked everywhere we needed to go. Never felt the need to take the train. Paid $28 per night for valet parking and well worth it to us. Just knowing we could have the car whenever we wanted was great...even though we never needed it.
Walked to Sears Tower, walked to John Hancock, all from this centrally located hotel.
Plus there is an excellent deli located on the bottom floor where the Rueben's are to die for.
Give this hotel a shot and you will be assured of stress-free stay.

Good value for the $from lawahoo2001
a gem under the el tracksfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The lobby is small and elegant, decorated in traditional furniture. The traditional look continues in the rooms, which are large with huge TVs in armoires, CD player-clocks and other niceties. The bathrooms are also big, with plenty of fluffy towels.
But it's the service that really sets this place apart. The doormen are the absolute best, greeting you every time you enter and literally breaking their necks to help you with bags. Also, there's turn down service, a little sleeping aid bag with an eyemask and CD, and even a call from the front desk after you've checked in.
The Loop location isn't the most lively on nights and weekends, but the Silversmith is in a great spot. You can literally walk out the front door and up the stairs of the El station (Brown, Green, Purple and Orange lines). The red line is a block away on State Street, and another block over is the Blue Line to O'Hare. The hotel is also within easy walking distance of Millenium Park and the museums, or even the Mag Mile on a decent day. (Save the shoe leather and take the red line up to Chicago for the Mag Mile tho).
With rates that haven't gone bonzo like many Chicago hotels, the Silversmith is a jewel. I can't say enough good things about this place!

A wonderful place for familiesfrom changOakland
Great hotel, great locationfrom kenyonsf
The hotel is right in front of the "L" subway trains, which are noisy and run regularly. Thankfully the hotel has excellent windows that do a good job of muting almost all the sound. The hotel is done in a mission style with lots of oak and architectural accents. Perfect if you're on a Frank Lloyd Wright-themed trip.
The rooms are high-ceilinged and large with big windows. The site said the last renovation was in 1998, but it has held up well. The only blemish was an older shower head that wasn't as powerful as I would have liked.
Location is excellent - one block from Grant park, the bandshell, Art Institute, Marshall Fields and other shopping. Also within 2 blocks of the L trains for Midway and O'Hare airports. The deli/restaurant downstairs is open late, has a wide variety of food from premium hotdogs to giant sandwiches to steak. The desserts and their own root beer are excellent.
All in all a great hotel - worth the money.

Top Local Tips for Chicago
brunch at Orange For a fun breakfast with a twist go to Orange. There are several locations. They make their own juice and have lots of options. We started out with the fruit juice of the day, fruishi (fruit served like sushi) and their own orange coffee. My dish was the adventurouspancake flight with 4 stacks of silver dollar pancakes topped with interesting combinations such as pears and spicy pistachios, ricotta and honey. The service was outgoing and friendly.
From airport to downtown Find out how close your hotel is to a stop on the "L" train. Our hotel was about 50 feet from where the L stopped. We were able to purchase, at Midway airport, a 3 day pass for transportation on the L or the CTA buses for $12...this was outstanding value, as I had taken shuttles before which ran about $15 each way. This pass was used to get from Midway to the hotel, and back, and many times over and over throughout the downtown area. If you walked somewhere, and got tired, and had a bite to eat, you could always hop a bus in the opposite direction to take you back. Also, once we were tired, and just took the bus to the far end of the museum corridor, just to relax and see the skyline and that end of town. Good way to take a break and still see some of the town.
Metro Metro takes a very long time to get to O'Hara. While it is the cheapest it wakes about 45 minutes longer to go that way!
