Fantastic B&B with the friendliest owners ever. Very knowledgeable about the local scene. The decoration is amazing. Mel and Angie treat you as one of the family. Other guests are interesting. Breakfast is great. Mel is even organising an impromptu Blues brunch. What more can you ask for? A good choice to stay in Chicago.

Thank you for visiting us and thank you for being an easy to please and curious guest at our place- and indeed, not another room for the night! It's always nice to learn that we have exceeded expectations and we could be a bit impromptu to make certain that you may remember an "experience" rather than just a hotel room...

My husband and I chose this place based on the amazing reviews, and we are very glad we did. This was my first stay at a bed and breakfast. Mel is the most amazing host. He truly knows the city, and gives the most helpful advice and recommendations. He makes you feel right at home,and encourages you to explore the...

The first thing Angie and I do each morning as a service team is checking out our reviews. What a way for us to start the day! You shared your experience in this to travelers looking for great service and an insightful experience with Chicago's great neighborhoods- our greatest asset. You too are our actually our most important customer. Thank...

The Welcome Inn Manor is one of the best hidden gems Chicago has to offer. Mell, Jimmy and Selma the neighbor helped make my wife and I feel very welcome on our week long stay. We looked forward to waking up every morning (even after staying out way past our bedtimes enjoying the Chicago nightlife) to see what amazing breakfast...

We are honored by the review you posted about your experience with us; and not just another room for the night. While we are told face to face how much customers enjoy our unique service offerings, it takes a very special person to share their experience with us to the online world. Your recommendation provides insight on what we try...

We had looked at this b & b many times before booking....upon arrival the neighborhood is not the best, the b & b itself was beautiful but overwhelming in decor. Mell was very welcoming and gave great recommendations for resturants, but the breakfast was not appetizing, we were served a vegetable mixture with beans and rice, also frozen precooked sausage...

We appreciate you taking the time to voice your opinion and give us feedback on what we are doing well and where we need improvement. Like many areas in Chicago that are ever-evolving, we represent investors and over 1,000 historic homes built in the late 1800's that are being fully restored and preserved only 10 minutes from everything.

If you are looking for a standard, cookie-cutter room, this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for genuine hospitality, excellent food, fascinating history and art, and scintillating conversations, this IS the place for you. Oh, if you want a jacuzzi, you can have that too, in the enormous Nat King Cole suite. Did I mention...

Every day we count our blessings to do our best to offer more than just a room for the night.

Absolutely LOVED this place! Very clean, warm, and comfortable establishment. The breakfast was beyond delicious and the house is gorgeous. Staff was courteous, polite and overall respectful. I would definitely recommend this space for travelers. It is so much better than a typical hotel. The innkeepers were conversational and very welcoming! I will definitely return.

This is by far the best and most beautiful Bed & Breakfast I've stayed in! The comfort of the guests is of paramount importance to the Innkeepers as evidenced in the attention to every detail throughout. It's almost like being in an art gallery or museum with all the beautiful artifacts throughout. Breakfast each day was an event with a...

This place reflects a time of elegance and history, not only in America but from other parts of the world. The service, impeccable.

This 1893 Queen Anne home is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Chicago. The first floor has high ceilings, beautiful woodwork, and is decorated with interesting art.

Had a wonderful weekend here! We could not have asked for better service, surroundings or food. Mell is great and helped us navigate Chicago and provided us with transportation. I would recommend Welcome Inn and Manor to anyone wishing to visit Chicago. Felt like home!
