8/10 Very good

Great Value
As some of the other reviews have stated, the hotel is older and a little "tired", but for the price especially when you compare it to the other hotels in the area, it's an excellent value. Just a block off Michigan Avenue, you can't ask for a better location. The room was clean and we found the service of the staff to be friendly and excellent. Before booking this hotel, I debated heavily on whether to spend double the price for another hotel in the area, but I am so glad I didn't. We will stay again at the Whitehall when visiting Chicago.

Needs some work
The people at the check-in desk were less than friendly. No smiles, no "welcome to our hotel" or anything like that. In the first room they gave me the safe didn't work. The number pad was breaking away from the door. They reluctantly reassigned me. The second room, same problem. Safe didn't work. In the third room, where I eventually stayed, the safe worked, but couldn't lock unless I leaned against the door. The refrigerator didn't work at all. On two of the four days, I got hot water out of both taps. On the plus side, the bed was comfortable and the AC worked. My friends, however, who were in a different room, had AC problems where it would stop working overnight. Their room was up to 85 degrees at one point. It is highly unlikely we'll return.

Nice Place To Stay But Needs New Life
My stay at Whitehall was pleasant enough. While the room was clean enough, the furniture was missing hardware on the drawers in various pieces. One of the closet doors was not sliding correctly, the light in the closet was burned out. There was no coffee maker in the room, and no coffee service in the lobby so if you want coffee before 7am that is not a Starbucks good luck!

Pleased and Alive
So overall things were good but the faucets were annoying and confusing. One of the handles literally came off. We got lost in. Stairwell and there was no exit from the stairs, not sure why they even exist. I’m 99% sure there was a ghost in my room and I was sure this was the hotel from American Horror Story. I literally waited for Lady Gaga to show up. But as you can see I’m writing a review so I lived. Staff was super friendly. Wasn’t worth the $600 for 2 nights but it was overall pleasant and not nearly as hauntedly homicidal as I was expecting. What I will say is the staff was nice but not specific about parking there are 2 garages right near each other. One is free for hotel guests, one is $45 a day. 2 days, $90… I was not happy about that.

Room needs update. I know they like to keep it old and original but peeling wall paper chipping paint on ceiling plumbing backing up in tub and toilet bubbling all the time in the bowl. Needs looked in to. And room smelled like smoke when we checked in and a window was open.
