Inn Manor is beautiful, clean and well decorated,also the transportation is very convenient. The breakfast is delicious. Mell, the inn keeper, is very kind and thoughtful. He prepared hot milk for us, acted as a tour guide and drove us to many places for free.

Inn Manor is a wonderful place to stay in Chicago. It is very bueatiful, clean and well decorated, making us feel like home. It is very convenient too, close to the subway station and University of Chicago. The breakfast is also delicious. Mell, the inn keeper, is very kind and humororous, prepared hot milk for us after knowing our special need.He drove us to University of Chicago, many scenic spots and also the airport. He offered us snacks when we relaxed in the living roome in the evening. We had a lot conversation with Mell and learned a lot about Chicago from him. We had a very good time at Inn Manor with Mell. Hope to stay here again if we come to Chicago.


Amazing experience!

charming place and accommodation

the B&B Hotel was very charming and in a quiet area. The Manager was very helpful in giving us a very good breakfast and service including a drive every day to the Mc Cormic place and other places - very nice and thank you again. We will come again.


A Great Stay

My wife had surgery recently at the University of Chicago Hospital which required an eight day stay in the City. Our experience at the Welcome Inn Manor Bed and Breakfast could not have been better. We were greeted at check in with warm hospitality which helped to calm anxiety of the upcoming procedure. Every need that arose throughout this experience was met above and beyond expectations, to include; early morning rides to the hospital, assisting with getting back to the B&B upon discharge, and even traveling to the drug store for medications. It was especially nice to have Mell and Angie waiting for me at the end of each day while my wife was in the hospital to discuss the day’s events and unwind. We will be returning to Chicago for some follow up visits, and will definitely being staying the Welcome Inn Manor!


THE PLACE TO STAY IN CHICAGO!

5 on May 18, 2015

From the pickup at the airport to the gourmet daily breakfasts (at whatever hour of the morning suits your schedule), to the excellent local recommendations, Mell is the consummate host. He was always ready with friendly conversation, recommendations for finding great food and music, and even provided a bottle of wine to unwind in the evening. This lovely B&B is a bit off the beaten path, but was very convenient for my visit to the U of Chicago. The accommodations are unique and spectacular, while still priced to compete. Every room has been lovingly restored from the original 1890s brownstone manor to provide comfortable and luxurious accommodations while retaining the original charm of the place. When traveling for business I'm used to staying in the standard Hyatts, Marriotts, etc. Instead, if you want a place with some character and a personal touch, you can't do better than the Welcome Inn Manor!


Great Trip to Chicago

We absolutely loved our visit to the Welcome Inn. Mel and Angie greeted us like we were family. The food was great, convenience was beyond our expectations, and the atmosphere was very warm and accommodating. Highly recommend.


Even in a blizzard, warm hospitality and beautiful rooms.

This was a second stay for us, both related to a Library Conference. The building is beautiful, the rooms very well appointed, but the hospitality exceeds all. Mell and Angie were dealing with a record breaking blizzard, canceled plans for the Super Bowl Party and family obligation, but they took care of our every need. In addition to providing wonderful gourmet breakfasts, they even hand -elivered a Soul Food Sunday brunch when the snow made traveling difficult. Beautiful art and music surround the visitor, history lessons about the Bronzeville neighborhood enrich the experience, and a warm, relaxed atmosphere through it all. The Nat King Cole room has a jacuzzi tub, large shower and multiple areas to sit and relax in the Suite. Music pipes in through the rooms, jazz. surrounds you. Cannot say enough to recommend the place and the people. Plus we gratefully accepted Mell's generous drives to the Convention Center, which is only 3 miles away, a walk or bus ride in the summer, but in winter, more of a challenge. Our only regret is that we could not follow up on Mell's insider recommendations for jazz and blues clubs. Nest time. Visit The Welcome Inn on your next trip to Chicago, you will not regret it!


Gorgeous home

My stay at this bed and breakfast was a wonderful experience. Mell and Angie were very hospitable. They both made me feel safe and at home. The breakfasts on both mornings were very enjoyable and filling. I really appreciated the care that they took to showing me the way to get access to public transit or other options for getting through different parts of the city. I hope to get back someday soon for another visit!


Sister Christmas trip to Chicago

5 on December 15, 2014

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Welcome Inn Manor. The innkeepers were gracious and offered many helpful suggestions for dining, siteseeing and shopping. The inn was an experience in itself. A beautifully restored four story mansion with period furnishings alongside modern amenities. Looking forward to our next visit!!!!!!!


Felt like "home." Luxuriously appointed. Great hospitality and food.
