Fifth visit to Chicago and staying in this apartment. The location is fantastic! It's an apartment so there's not really onsite dining (other than what you prepare for yourself). There's not traditional room service - no one comes to the door every morning to clean - but new towels and trash service are available as needed. Having a stocked kitchen is a GREAT feature - allowed us to entertain family & friends and allowed us to only go out to eat when we actually wanted to. One downside this year (2016) - the knives in the kitchen were all exceedingly dull - made it very difficult to cook. The variety and quality of the pots & skillets is less than we'd hoped for. (It seems like the number and condition of the cookware has declined from previous visits).
We stayed in the Garden Apartment for 2 nights and it was a great experience. The service was exceptional and they even gave me a call to let me know the room was ready. Lindsey checked us in and was exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The room was beautiful and spacious. Two beds, a kitchenette/dining table, and large bathroom. There was extra blankets, plenty of towels, and the beds were comfortable. The room was exceptionally clean and the housekeeper was so kind and checked in with us every day. This B&B is in a great location for shopping and about 4-5 blocks from the train station. Many good places to eat close by and about 1 block from a Walgreens. I would definitely book a stay here again!!!
We stayed in the Cape Cod room for 3 nights. We really liked the room. It was very clean and felt very cozy/homey. The bathroom was a bit small but we certainly didn't mind. It was great to have breakfast and the communal kitchen in the mornings. The Inn is located in a great area within walking distance of a lot of good restaurants and bars. It's also very close to hop on the subway.
Friendly knowledgeable staff, clean rooms, internet, HD TV to Chicago sports. Best location, walk to restaurants, shopping, bars, grocery stores, drug stores and an awesome bakery. Great security! Favorite place to stay in Chicago!!!!!
We came from Spain to visit the city for the first time, and be with some friends we know there. The room was good, with all you need to be confortable. But I think the best part of this place is his owner, David, he was always helping us to let us know what places we should go to see the downtown, was the nicest guy we ever met in a travel. (Even I gave him an euro as a lucky coin!) The place have good conection, you are 2 blocks from subway station. So if I go back to Chicago someday, I will go again.
We stayed a long weekend visiting our daughter and taking part in a charity walk. The location is great and the bedroom was large and very comfortable. I don't think you could find a better value in Chicago. The innkeeper always asked if we needed anything, parking passes, directions,etc. it is quiet and cozy. This was our second stay there, and would choose it again.
Wonderful rooms on busy Division Street; steep stairs to reach them. Super comfortable bed, thoughtfully planned bathroom. A small table/desk would be helpful. We enjoyed our stay, but the entire staff of the place was absent the first two days we were there (they said an emergency -- we thought someone had died -- but actually they were having a staff retreat). We couldn't get extra towels, couldn't get into the kitchen, couldn't reach anyone by phone. Great room but seems like a weird way to run a lodging establishment. Probably doesn't happen very often -- recommend this place if you're v. independent and comfortable with stairs.
This treasure is located in the heart of Old Chicago's turn of the Century mansions of Oak Park. You can walk to 2 dozen of Frank Lloyd Wright's most famous early Designs. Bishop's Hall is a different example of the architecture of that early 20th century era. The owner makes the entire home open and accessible to his privileged guests. Charles is more interesting than his estate with colorful stories to add to his breakfast affairs.
Wanted something close to Wrigley. This place was perfect. Price was right, neighborhood has a lot of options for food and cocktails. Highly recommend if you are looking for a change from the large hotel stay in downtown.
This was our first trip to Chicago and had a wonderful 6 night stay at Villa D' Citta. It is a beautiful B&B and Cathy, the director couldn't have been more welcoming! After a full day of sightseeing, she made us feel like we'd come home. Can't wait to return!
