This is a hotel for people who want to stay somewhere that isn't part of a bland "our rooms are the same wherever you go" chain.
If you want to stay in nice surroundings with real history and have a great home made breakfast this...More

Dear Important Guest, Thank you for your kind words! More importantly recognizing our attention to detail to ensure you have a relaxing stay at the mansion. We hope to see you this summer as we have made many improvements to the grounds and interior.

Dear Important Guest we are terribly sorry that your assistant did not inform you we were upgrading our entry system. We installed a sign on the gate as a back up measure to call the main number. Fortunately you called the main number as the...More
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.
