About

The Wicker Park Inn offers high quality yet affordable accommodations in Chicago's "trendy" Wicker Park neighborhood just minutes from Downtown. The Inn is located on a quiet, tree-lined street of turn-of-the-century row houses only a short walk from great restaurants, vintage and boutique shops, cafes, art galleries, and nightlife. Each of our four charming guestrooms has a private bathroom, satellite TV, free WiFi, and many other amenities. We also have 2 apartments ideal for families or a long-term stay. Conveniently located near Chicago's subway train, a visit to the Wicker Park Inn does not require the rental of a car. The train runs from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport to downtown. Access from Chicago's Midway Airport is equally convenient. Indeed, the Wicker Park Inn B&B is an ideal base for exploring all of Chicago's sights. All major attractions are a short train, bus, or taxi ride away.

Lindsay was great. The property is a hidden gem.

3.2 on June 02, 2016

We checked in with Lindsay, who was very friendly and polite. Our room (basement level apartment) was spacious, clean and well stocked. I was surprised to have to pay extra for breakfast, which was ok but much less than that received at other B&Bs. The location was excellent for us, and was a good alternative to a limited service hotel. We hope to return.


Wonderful place to stay!

Beautiful Rooms, Great Location

5 on May 21, 2016

We loved our night spent at the Wicker Park Inn. It was really close to a great selection of restaurants, bars, bookstores, and coffee shops. The beds were incredibly comfortable, and we both got a great night's sleep despite the slight noise that filters in from the busy street nearby. The room itself was large, beautifully furnished, and extremely clean. We already had plans for breakfast, so we didn't try the breakfast offered onsite, but I'm sure it would have been as lovely as the rest of our experience there.


Great accommodations, service, and location

5 on May 17, 2016

I was actually here on business and definitely made the right decision staying a bit out of downtown. The nearby L stations make it easy to get downtown and the neighborhood around the inn was much nicer to hang out in after a busy day of meetings than, I think, staying in the Loop. The rooms are spacious and really pleasant. I was in the Chicago room and while I imagine the train sounds (it's right there and at all hours) might bother some, I actually found it very atmospheric, even soothing. The kitchen setup is nice. No real problems, all questions answered. Overall, it was great place to recharge and would definitely recommend.


Charming and a great location

4.4 on May 15, 2016

Our accommodations worked out spectacularly for our trip. The location was great for the things we planned to do, but also provided lots to do (and eat) within a block or 2 walking distance. Check in went smoothly and the breakfast was great every morning. I have dietary restrictions and there was enough variety that I found plenty to eat every morning. It would have been nice to have 2 sets of keys for the room, but we made do with the single set. I have and will continue to recommend this B&B to friends and family. I very much enjoyed my stay.


Like coming home . . .

4.6 on May 12, 2016

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Wicker Park Inn. It is the second opportunity we had to enjoy the hospitality there and it remains our favorite venue when visiting the city. The staff is warm and welcoming and the rooms are comfortable and spacious. We enjoy the neighborhood, especially the el trains that rumble past on schedule. It is a perfect urban retreat!


It was great to feel at home ¿¿

After 14 years of living in Chicago, My daughter and I (now 5) moved to Ga. It has been 2 years and I have missed my city everyday. Staying in our old neighborhood was perfect. Wicker Park Inn was just what we needed. Close to the train, all of our favorite restaurants and of course, Wicker Park. My daughter's father is currently going through cancer treatment in Chicago, so having a place for she and I to go to to relax and feel at home is exactly what we needed. The accommodations are perfect. Always very quiet in the house- and the coffee is so good! ¿¿ The Chicago Room does have the extra bonus of the blue line running right outside your back door. Living in the city for so long- my daughter and I totally embraced this. It put a smile on my face while having my early morning coffee on our porch. Check in and out was very easy. We will continue to stay here on all of our visits back to Chicago. Our next room is already booked! Summertime in Chicago is the therapy we need while going through this difficult time. Thank you WP Inn for being awesome.

We stayed one night in the Cape Cod room at Wicker Park Inn. The room was lovely, very clean and well decorated. The furniture was comfortable...loved having an extra chair. The breakfast room was really nice...great selection of fruit, bread, pastry, cereals, and even hard boiled eggs. We would have liked decaf coffee. The only drawback is the nearness of the train. It really is noisy.


Great place in Chicago

Had A Wonderful Stay

The Inn is beautiful and clean, and had no problems sleeping in the Chicago room, even with the noise of the train. Highly recommend if you are staying in the area.
