Although it was a bit awkward to have to go down the hall to use our bathroom, it was listed on the website and we expected it. That was the only down side to this place!! Great 1920s themed bed and breakfast. The innkeeper, David was fantastic. Helpful with transportation and directions and he personally made and served the continental breakfast. Close to the L train stop, wrigley field and some great restaurants. We will be staying here again. Totally worth the money!!
We have stayed here many a times. We love this place. It's a short get away from home that I would love to go to every weekend. We haven't been there since the new owners took over. (We logged a free night stay.) But, I think it will be better. Exreamly queit since it's all concrete.
The Villa is beautiful, both the building and the decorative art. It is a very comfortable atmosphere, feels like home. The food is delicious and very generous. Every detail has been considered to make the visit pleasant. Cathy is the perfect host. We think of this as our favorite place to stay anywhere.
This place is absolutely gorgeous! We stayed in the Grace Kelly Suite and the attention to detail in our suite and in the common areas are stunning!! The common living room area is stocked with snacks and drinks, making it very convenient for us! They also have the option for housekeeping daily, which makes this place special! It was like staying in a small boutique hotel! We will definitely be back!
This was the first time we stayed in a apartment instead of hotel in Chicago. What a difference. The place was quiet. private very relaxing. Location was perfect . Parking was free. We will be returning.
I stayed here while traveling on business and I am so glad that I tried it. If you are looking for a place to get away from all of the chain hotels and enjoy some peace and quiet then this is your place. The room was spacious and very clean and I felt like I was at home. I was so impressed that I decided to stay another night later in the week during my travels.
The rooms are gorgeous, as is the neighborhood. The hostess is welcoming and friendly and helpful. Very comfortable all in all, and they put out a great continental breakfast which is available all day and night for your eating needs. A central location, close to downtown attractions (only a short ride away) and tons of 5 star restaurants to suit everyone's palate and night life within walking distance. Only drawback was that they do not have anything but feather bedding - duvet, pillows, mattress pad/feather bed, throw pillows - all feather. I let them know I had an allergy and they assured me that they emailed me that they do not have hypoallergenic alternatives, "because they only have 7 units and are a luxury b&b", but somehow that communication never made it to me, so we were not prepared and had to essentially strip the luxurious bed to sleep between empty duvet covers on the sole throw pillow that was not feather. Even the pens have feathers! Their only offer was to cancel our reservation and refund us, which would have caused us to need to find a new room when we had already traveled to Chicago and weren't likely to find similar accommodations in the Gold Coast at the last minute on a Friday evening. Luckily, we made it through the weekend, thanks to benadryl and truly enjoyed our stay! Next time, we will bring our own pillows and blankets. We plan to bring our kids with us next time to stay in the Grace Kelly penthouse. Highly recommend this b&b, as long as you are not allergic to feathers.
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!
