We loved this hotel/mansion! The inside of the house was well maintained with a lot of character. Our room was amazing with high ceilings, nice comfortable bed, and elegant features. It was such a nice retreat from a day out on the big city. Breakfast, though minimal, was very good. They all also had a Tassimo coffee maker so there...

There are painfully few opportunities to stay in a property like this. Totally accessible, really great staff, it was a pleasure. The food was delicious and I would recommend this place to anyone. Why stay at a hotel when you can stay at a mansion?!

What a beautiful gem in a great location in downtown Chicago. Walking distance to the Museums and Soldier Field, close to bus routes, and an easy 5-20 minute drive to pretty much anywhere else you'd like to go in Chicago. The rooms are gorgeous and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful.

Neighbourhood Profile
South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you happen to visit during football season, you may bump into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park is one of Chicago’s premier locations for green space and recreation with views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline. Take a stroll down memory lane in the historic Prairie District where you can enjoy views of old historic homes. Restaurants, theaters, and clubs are spread throughout the neighborhood along with a collection of burger joints along Michigan Avenue just across from the park.
