My husband and I really enjoyed our stay celebrity suites. You couldn't ask for a more relaxing comfortable B & B with character and charm. The location is absolutely perfect in downtown Chicago in a beautiful high end neighborhood. Walk a few blocks and you are in the heart of the city with restaurants and shopping. We visited in May when the flowers were blooming everywhere, just gorgeous!!
My husband and I spent a long weekend at Bishops Hall at the end of an intense few weeks of grandkids and family reunions and road trips--and it could not have been more rejuvenating! Charles Tupta is the epitome of the gracious, helpful and approachable host. We stayed over 4th of July weekend and in fact he had given his long-serving housekeeper a holiday, so he was doing much of the cooking and cleaning himself--and he even gave us a ride to the el station one morning. The home is so well-appointed and authentic that it is breathtaking, and yet it doesn't have that pretentious feeling that makes you afraid you'll break something. Never have we had such a perfect B & B experience--and we would highly recommend it. The rates are reasonable, the food is delicious and the location is convenient, in a quiet upscale neighborhood in Oak Park with easy access to downtown Chicago.
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.
