    The staff was most helpful and the rooms were fantastic. We were able to attend meetings at McCormick Place with a 5 minute walk.

    The restoration is gorgeous! It's like stepping back in time 80 years. The rooms were nicely appointed, clean and well-kept. There's no wifi or internet per se, but plenty of open networks in the neighborhood that we used. Our room was comfortable and as quiet as can be that close to the lake. The staff was great. Andrea and Debra are awesome hostesses!

    It's a walk from nearly everything except a bus or taxi. The neighborhood is undergoing a renaissance, if you will, but it's about a year or so away from being closeby to restaurants.

    The Management was friendlily and the Rooms and Ambiance were wonderful, 2 blocks from the McCormick place made it a wonderful location, I would recommend this to anyone wanting a 4 to 5 star stay.

    comfy rooms, friendly staff, beautiful rooms, and hot fresh breakfast on china

    water pressure was too low in my original room, but the staff switched my room and it was quite pleasant.

    Very beautiful, completely renovated mansion in safe neighborhood. Walking distance to the Mc Cormick Convention Center. Highly recommended, staff great as well.

    No elevator, not handicap accessible. Although for an older guest there is a first floor room.

    The hotel rooms and interiors generally are lovely period design with a lot of attention to detail. The location is a little way out of the city, but an easy trip on the bus and not a very long walk; location is very close to the parks and the beach.

    The staff are very nice and helpful, but not always around - sometimes there are empty halls and no help. The water pressure in the upstairs rooms is beyond terrible. Wireless internet is available but not free, and even payment does not ensure service.

    arrived between 7 and 8pm and was immediately charged with a "latecomer" fee (come on!). The shower had close to no water supply

    The staff is very friendly.

    The internet connection at 3rd floor is not so good.

    The hotel is a old and beautiful house built before the fire of Chicago.

    When we arrived there was nobody at the hotel, the doors were closed. There was no bath towels and nobody to ask for it in the first day. The receptionist didn't know almost nothing about our reservation, she was thinking that we should check out 2 days before, and she didn't have the correct price of our reservation. Only one key for 2 people, it means: a lot of problems when there is nobody in the hotel during almost all the day. During the whole stay (4 nights), we didn't have no room service in 1 of them.

    A good location and attractive rooms.

    Essential things were missing from the room (face cloths, water glass), and the focus seemed to be on charm rather than function. When will b & b get all the elements together?

    Stunning decor, style and atmosphere. Amazing atmosphere created, the feeling of being in a late 19th , early 20th Centuary Robber baron mansion House. Not very close to fine dining but a pleasant enough 30-40 minute walk through Soldier Fields and Millennium Park, along the lake, into the City. $10-12 into City centre by Taxi.

    No close restaurants. No in room tea or coffee (which I personally like)

  • Single

    It's a bit complicated when you check-in this hotel- you have to give a call to the hotel then they open the door. Whenever you wanna ask something, you have to give a call- to cell phone- But nice room and really quiet. Great location for the conference center.

    No coffee set in the room. The curtains in my room did not work. No heater (I think).
