We just got back from a weekend baby moon at the Wicker Park Inn. The location is ideal! We walked throughout the Wicker Park neighborhood and loved the easy access to the "L" to get around. The restaurant options are boundless and we had so much fun eating our way through the neighborhood. Loved Taxim, Mindy's Hot Chocolate, Wormhole coffee, Jenni's Ice Cream and Cumin for Indian food! We stayed in the Cape Cod room. You could hear the train, but it was not disruptive in the least. It was comfortable, clean and nice staff. Breakfast had a wide variety of options with bagels, peanut butter, cream cheese, fresh fruit, danish, cereal, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, yogurt, granola, mini quiche and the like. Parked on the street all weekend with the overnight pass provided by the Inn. Worked great.
I stayed here and loved it. Mine was a last-minute booking and Kim, the owner (a married couple owns it) got me set up, even was able to check me in early per my request. The upside to a B&B is the personal touch, and The Sono totally came through. The location is great (just a mile or two north of the downtown area), the continental breakfast yummy, and the living room/kitchen welcoming. It has seven rooms and you can hear other people puttering around on occasion, but for the location, the price, and the experience of a home away from home (that's modern-style, not Victorian), I'll definitely go back there again.
This was probably our 6th stay at Wicker Park Inn. (Plus we will return for another visit at the end of January.) Great location, clean, very friendly staff! We are starting g to feel like family since we go at least twice a year. The staff is very easy to work with and try their best to accommodate your needs when possible. Highly recommend Wicker Park Inn!
Forget big hotels, they need to stay here and learn a thing or two. A level of attention that makes you feel like the one guest here. Open kitchen, huge spaces, every aspect first class. Would give 11/10 if possible.
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.
