Seriously . . . this was our third stay at this hotel, the second in room number 7. The staff is friendly, competent and they really care. The place is quiet and private and relaxing in every way, the rooms are very comfortably furnished and spotlessly kept. Breakfast included in the restaurant next door is absolutely top flight. The neighborhood is a historic district of homes and small, interesting shops. The walk to downtown is less than 10 minutes and it is easy to walk to and from the OSF theaters. I see no reason to stay anywhere else---this is it!
