We absolutely loved our visit to the Welcome Inn. Mel and Angie greeted us like we were family. The food was great, convenience was beyond our expectations, and the atmosphere was very warm and accommodating. Highly recommend.
I really enjoyed the comfort and quiet at The Ruby Room while attending weekend yoga classes at Moksha. The bed and steam shower were perfect for getting a sound sleep and relaxing tired muscles. The neighborhood has plenty of great restaurants most especially the Carriage House a block away. Will be staying here again!
I used to live in Chicago, near Wicker Park and Bucktown, and discovered this place by accident. The heating in my apartment was out in the middle of a brutal Chicago winter, my wife and I needed a place to not freeze-to-death in, and the Wicker Park Inn was the nearest place with an open room. The staff was nice and courtesy, the room was beautiful, and we ended up having a great time. This was the first time we'd come back to Chicago since we moved away and the Wicker Park Inn was a natural choice. Clean rooms, nice amenities, and in a quiet neighborhood close to Bucktown/Wicker Park's eclectic bars, restaurants, and shops. I think it's a MUCH better way of experiencing Chicago then the tourist-trap hotels in ritzier places like Michigan Ave. Highly recommended!
My plan was to surprise my daughter with an overnight visit to Chicago that would be relaxing and enjoyable. after deciding on the entertainment venue, The Book of Mormon, I searched for accommodations and came across the Ruby Room Inn and Spa. It was the perfect package! Unfamiliar with the city I researched the distance from the theatre, reviews of the Wicker Park area and the Ruby Room. All gave a thumbs up. We were not disappointed. The area proved to be rich in cuisine and the accommodations were clean, quiet and with no TV, very relaxing. We checked out the kitchen on the third floor, but elected not to brew any coffee in the morning, walking two blocks to Starbucks instead. It is a hike up the stairs,but something we joked about as our exercise. Would recommend packing lightly. Doves Luncheonette for any meal is a must, for us it was breakfast. A short search for parking and we lucked out with a spot on Paulina and never moved our car. We both agree that we would stay off the beaten path when visiting Chicago and definitely return to the Ruby Room Inn and Spa.
Our third floor room was bright and spacious. The first night it was overly warm but staff took care of turning the thermostat down the next day and we were very comfortable. Breakfasts were plentiful and home cooked items were great. My wife appreciated the good selection of quality teas. And the upstairs kitchen where they had snacks and drinks was a very nice surprise.
Really had a great time at the Ruby Room Inn. Rooms were cozy, cute, and clean. It was great to stay in one of the neighborhoods and experience something closer to real Chicago living. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends.
What a horrible experience. If you want to know everything check out the yelp review. Words cannot describe my emotions. I have stayed in Chicago, Scottsdale, Las Vegas, Istanbul, Rome, Venice, Alexandria, Tokyo, Phoenix, New York, many many places, and this is the first review I have ever posted, ever. That's how awful I feel after staying here and meeting Cathy.
What a gorgeous home. From the minute we walked up the sidewalk to the beautiful entrance we were enchanted. This home is spotless, warm and inviting. Our hostess Mary was charming and what a wonderful cook!
My boyfriend and I booked a one night staycation at Villa D' Citta. It was the middle of winter and the high was 6 degrees. Cathy and the inn's accommodations kept us warm and full. We had a fantastic time and will definitely return!
