We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Welcome Inn Manor. The innkeepers were gracious and offered many helpful suggestions for dining, siteseeing and shopping. The inn was an experience in itself. A beautifully restored four story mansion with period furnishings alongside modern amenities. Looking forward to our next visit!!!!!!!
I will always seek to stay here when I visit my son in Chicago. It really is like home in all it's warmth and hospitality. Kapra and her staff are excellent hosts! I would confidently recommend the House of two Urns to anyone seeking an experience above a plain old hotel stay, and the price is much better too! Helmut
Very convenient location. Close to lots of restaurants, bakeries and coffee shops for meal choices since there is no breakfast served. Very good bakery/coffee shop directly across the street. Lots of shopping opportunities as well close by. King size bed was extremely comfortable and the steam shower was very relaxing. Be prepared for steps to the guest rooms. Stairs are very similar to older Europian Hotels - narrow and steep, but good exercise! Easy to get downtown and to airport. This was our second stay at the Ruby Room.
The Ruby Room has the most comfortable bed I ever slept in. The room doesn't have a TV so the place remains very quiet and peaceful. I love the location as it's close to great shops and restaurants. I haven't used it but the room key gives you access to the gym down the block which is a nice amenity. I would definitely stay there again.
I stayed in the Wicker Park Room which was nicely decorated and had a very comfortable bed. The room is on the first floor and right next to the main entrance which made for a loud stay.. Te location made the noisy room worth while.
Mike and Tom have set up an absolutely delightful B&B. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, with a lovely feel to them. The location can't be beat - close enough to walk to the beach or go shopping along the magic mile, but not in the midst of the noisy downtown area.
This is a wonderful place to stay. Staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms are clean, bed is comfortable and location is great. The only two downsides are the extremely steep stairs to get up to your room and slightly thin walls.
Very clean...pleasant..a real "do it yourself" kind of place...no one around, look for what we have and make it yourself. Fridge was very sparse...not much to choose. Kinda odd and trusting...I did not mind, but others might.
If you want the illusion of being a resident of Chicago, this is the place. Comfortable accommodations, true residential neighborhood, perfect location to Michigan Ave, Rush and State Streets. No need for a car as you can walk to both Millennium and Lincoln parks. Room 2F has a large 'great room' with couch, tv, dining area and relaxing lounge chairs, plus a kitchen with all you need to eat in-house and a nice but smallish bedroom and bath...more than adequate; plus it is quiet.
