Quaint hotel, very near shopping, eateries and our kids. Nice continental breakfast, very nice staff and comfortable rooms. Very safe neighborhood. Close to bus routes, within blocks of museums and other entertainment.

I spent a week here while spending time in the Lincoln Park Zoo. The Willows was very comfortable, but the staff were excellent and offered great help throughout my stay. Room service food was great: burger and chocolate milkshake were top notch.
