My husband and I stayed at The Wheeler Mansion for a get-away weekend. We were greeted by Celsa who couldn't have been any more accommodating. We were promptly shown to our room but quickly realized it was not the room described to me when making the reservation. When we mentioned this, Celsa quickly and graciously took us to the room...

Don't be scared by the people posting on here about staying during conferences. This is a beautifully restored mansion, with elegant rooms, accommodating staff, and that perfect balance of boutique and professional! Room was gorgeous and spacious - food was better than any place you'll go for brunch (we were blown away! don't skip it!) - staff was friendly, personal,... More

I had a terrific stay for a conference in November. The room was spacious and beautiful. The gas fireplace was a treat! The service was outstanding. Staff went out of their way to provide me with an early breakfast so I could get to my meetings on time. Coffee was available 24/7 which was wonderful for the short chilly walks... More

My husband and I were going to a wedding in Chicago (never been there before) and decided to combine it as a birthday vacation. I looked at so many hotels on line and finally happened across the Wheeler Mansion. I saw that there was free parking (unheard of) and also a gourmet breakfast (not just no taste mini danishes) so...

I had the pleasure of staying at the Wheeler Mansion back in the end of June and it was a very delightful experience. The décor of the bed and breakfast is beautiful.
