          The hotel is in a quite spot and has free wireless internet.

          I've booked a room through Booked.net, however only when I got to the hotel, they told me that I actually booked a room with a restroom and bathroom down the holl. I thought that was a joke - didn't think that kind of room exist anymore. Well you'd be surprised. Super-inconvenient.

        • Single

          The 1920s feel - very inspiring, and the lift. And the area was awesome, I had great people to talk to

        • Single
          6.2

          The rate was great. I slept really soundly. Down pillows and the most comfortable bed I've slept on in awhile. Despite the 90° heat, the rooms were pleasant to sleep in. Quaint, throwback decor.

          The hotel is pretty run down. I understand that it is old but there are just things that need to be cleaned or replaced. The quaint throwback decor isn't a result of some Disney remaking, the furniture is that old and hasn't been maintained in years (it appears). I'm the kind of traveller that doesn't need the latest bathroom fixtures and decorations but would expect these period pieces to be kept in good order.

          Wonderful place to explore and enjoy some history. Close walking distance to Northwestern University with many shops and places to eat along the way.

          Employees are friendly and the atmosphere was charming.

        • Older travelers

          The homey feeling and coziness of the hotel and the staff.

          No iron , ironing board or hair dryer.

        • Single
          10.0

          Charming, comfortable, close to downtown Chicago, accessible. Quiet, nice breakfast. Historical.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          I loved the charm of the old hotel. I enjoyed the furnishings.

          The mattress was not comfortable. I think new mattresses are needed.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          A unique b+b, slightly run down, but with great staff, very comfortable rooms. 'European charme' comes to mind... And did I mention the friendly and always helpful staff already?

          Over-powering heating system...but fortunately the windows do open :-)

        • Single
          8.0

          Its historical look and feel was great. I loved the fluffy feather pillows. Its location is in a great neighborhood.

          The radiator heat had no controls and the room was stifling hot.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Very unique, comfortable hotel.
