My boss stumbled upon this gem through reading a dated blog. We were in search of hotels that had 2 rooms available during a recent convention at McCormick Place. I was a bit skeptical at first since it was out of the normal of "traditional hotels". the Location was perfect, within a short walking distance from convention, 15-20 minutes from... More

Just returned home from our wonderful stay at the Wheeler Mansion. The building and rooms are spectacular featuring beautiful antiques and gorgeous renovations of the former mansion. It was such a pleasure to relax in a tranquil pampered environment rather than a busy chain hotel with their cookie cutter rooms. The hotel is conveniently located less than a mile from... More

We happened upon this beautiful, historic mansion restored as a bed and breakfast after my husband and I were bumped from our original reservation at a downtown Chicago hotel. We were welcomed by Christine, a warm host and owner, who offered us fresh baked cookies, good conversation and helpful tips for our weekend. The Wheeler Mansion is a mile or... More

I had a very disappointing experience at the Wheeler Mansion. I called to cancel our hotel rooms within 24 hours of booking and a week before the stay due to a change in travel plans and the manager insisted on charging us in full. The manager said that it is hard to sell their rooms (no wonder with such poor... More

I had my engagement party at the Wheeler Mansion last week and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The staff was attentive,and the setup was absolutely beautiful! A few guests including myself booked rooms for that night, the bedrooms were immaculate. There was a very welcoming feel from the staff...I would definitely go back!

Had a chance to enjoy this wonderful little jewel in Chicago's Prairie Avenue Historic District for a reunion and can't say enough good about it. Prices are comparable to similarly appointed luxury chain hotels in the area including the nearby Hyatt McCormick Place. In fact, during a convention, when the Hyatt's rates peak, the Wheeler Mansion's rates are a terrific... More

Staying in South Loop

Neighborhood 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.
