The owners Mel and Angie are very personable and friendly. You immediately feel at home. Mel makes a great breakfast with each morning something different and homemade. The house is a historical journey in itself with photos and memorabilia of the rich African American cultural history of Chicago. I would definitely stay again.
Staying at Villa D' Citta was an amazing experience. From the moment we arrived Cathy ensured we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Awesome location for exploring some of Chicago's best sites. We would definitely recommend it!
Since I've stayed at The Wicker Park Inn for the past three Riot Fest weekends, I know what to expect from the rooms and service. If this was my first stay I'd have rated each of the categories as outstanding. I plan on returning next year and will book again as soon as the Riot Fest dates are announced.
This is our second year staying at Wicker Park Inn during RiotFest and we can't imagine staying anywhere else! Clean, comfortable (the best mattress EVER) and reasonably priced.The Blue Line Room is NOT for light sleepers- as the name hints to, the Blue line L runs RIGHT past. To be honest, we didn't even notice the train after about an hour. Love having the facilities to cook our own meals and that the kitchen is stocked with the basic tools to whip up & eat breakfast/lunch or dinner. Just BYOF (bring your own food). Parking can be a bit of a pain over the weekend- my recommendation is park the car (don't forget to change your temporary permit stickers!) and use public transit. There's both a Divvy station and a #70 Division bus stop about two blocks away on Division. Not to mention the CTA stops on Milwaukee Ave. right around the corner. We ordered an Uber car on Sunday night and they were there in fewer than 5 minutes. This is our go to spot in Chicago. We LOVE it.
Roscoe Village fills a hotel void in the Roscoe Village/Lincoln Square areas of Chicago. We have stayed with them twice when visiting our son; the second time for his wedding! The condos were well-appointed and allowed us to be closer to our son's neighborhood. The neighborhoods are all walkable, with shopping and eating close by. The web-site is a little difficult to navigate, but worth it if you are looking for a place to stay in this area of Chicago.
I found the Welcome Inn Manor while looking for lodging close enough to enjoy the Chicago Jazz Festival. The Victorian house is lovely, high ceilings, gorgeous fireplace mantels and the woodwork has been lovingly restored. The innkeepers Mell and Angie Monroe helped me with transportation to the Festival in Millennial Park both Saturday and Sunday afternoon. They hosted a marvelous Sunday brunch attended by guests of the Inn, and longtime friends. Their congeniality and attentiveness was without parallel. Mell helped me rent a bicycle from a neighborhood shop so I could have the bike all afternoon for the price of an hour’s rental of a baby-blue bike on Lakeshore Drive Trail. On the final evening I tagged along with my hosts to a marvelous arts and crafts festival in Harold Washington Park. Welcome Inn Manor is close to University of Chicago and many of the city’s museums. A beautiful home with outstanding hosts. The coffee is ready before you are and the breakfast sausage is the bomb. Don’t miss this!
What a cool bed and breakfast in Lincoln Park! Both room and staff were very nice and accommodating. Great amenities and knowledgeable staff who offer recommendations around the area make this a great place to stay.
I highly recommend the Villa. The rooms are outstanding, the host is knowledgeable and a pleasure to talk to, and the B&B is an easy walk to the El---and the breakfasts are superb! Not too expensive either in the scheme of Chicago hotels.
I was looking for a hotel in Wicker Park, close to where my son lives. I located Two Urns on line. The B&B was such a wonderful place to stay. It was quiet, comfortable and close to all the shops & restaurants in Wicker Park. The breakfasts were wonderfully prepared and add to the value of your stay. Our room was a bit small but we spent little time in it. I hope to stay there on future visits to Chicago.
We truly enjoyed our stay at Roscoe Village! The condo was in a great location, close walk to restaurants, groceries, drink, etc. It really was the perfect accommodation for a group of 6 friends meeting in the Windy City. It was perfectly clean and had all the comforts of home. It's a little bit of a walk to the train so you may want to keep that in mind when planning transportation. Uber was really our go-to for getting around.
My wife and I stayed at the Old Chicago Inn last week (labor day weekend). It is a very good deal for non-driving people, since it is 2 minutes walking to the closest L stop (Belmont - red, purple and brown line), and 20 minutes far from the Loop. Prices were not high, compared to the other places in the city, but the room was very small + shared bathroom. Overall it is a clean place, very quiet and we really enjoyed the '30s atmosphere. There's a speakeasy in the basement, which is used as breakfast room in the morning. Continental breakfast is not abundant, but there's all you can need. Furthermore, David (the innkeeper) bakes one or more tasty cakes everyday for his guests. About David, I also wanna say he is one of the nicest and kindest persons we have ever met. He allowed us to have breakfast and use the restroom even if we didn't check in yet (we arrived very early in the morning) and he also stored our luggages, so we started to visit the city from the very beginning, then we checked-in in the afternoon. More, he allowed us to do a late check-out. Also, you can call him for whatever you need inside and outside the inn. We are planning to go back to Chicago in the next months, and definitely this place will be the first one we will get a look for a good deal and feeling at home away from home.
The Old Chicago Inn has a lot of history. It is conveniently located. The El is near by, Cabs are plentiful. Ann Sather's cinnamon rolls are around the corner. The Inn keeper is present and helpful. My husband and I enjoyed our stay and we loved our spacious room (3A) on the third floor.
We had a great time at the Villa. We were continuously blown away by the cool perks of the place---from the wine cask in the wall, outside hot tub, constant snacks. Cathy was awesome and very knowledgeable. She made sure we got the most out of our days here. Will come again!
