    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.

    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
