The staff was awesome and gave us a lot of great tips for restaurants and places to go. Perfect location! We would definitely book again.


Great place to stay

Having stayed here previously we knew how great this Inn was and it was just as friendly and welcome. We came as a family (6 adults and 2 children)and booked three rooms. We basically had the entire place to ourselves and with two small children(2 1/2 & 4 months) it was the ideal place. Special thanks to Paul and Lindsey for making us feel at home !

I stay at this inn frequently due to the amazing location and ability to park a car at no extra expense. Also, literally near the blue line which is cool.

Great Location!

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.


Funky urban B&B

4.0 on January 28, 2017

Funky, hip neighborhood with fun shops and restaurants nearby, easy access to Blue Line and a laid-back vibe (including 24-hour access to the kitchen/shared room). A great little place to stay for a weekend.


Our "go to place" in Wicker Park!

4.4 on December 30, 2016

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!


Wicker Park Inn - Bucktown Apartment

3.8 on November 30, 2016

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).

About the innkeepers

I grew up in Chicago and returned home in 1996 after earning an Urban Studies degree from Brown University. I began running the Wicker Park Inn in 2004 along with operating a local bakery. I recently renovated our facility to provide our guests with the most luxurious accommodations and modernized technology to ensure a joyful stay. We are staffed with amazing innkeepers and our impeccable cleaning staff. We look forward to hosting your next visit to Chicago!
