This is a delightful old house with 4 guest rooms, all tastefully furnished with every need of guests in mind. Sally meets her guests, establishes rapport in a friendly and efficient way and tells you everything you need whilst providing a drink and cake. Rooms are en suite and private whilst there is also a sitting room with free computer useage looking out on to a secluded and pretty garden with table and seats for guests use. The breakfast area overlooks the sitting room giving a feeling of space and the breakfast is self service. Cereals, fruit, breads, pastries, coffee, tea and fruit juice are available in abundance. Sally is not there fussing over guests but is always available to give help and advice. We found this particularly attractive. Snacks and drinks are available in the kitchen, which guests are encouraged to treat as their own.
The area is attractive and historical, with almost a village feel, whilst being close to the Hancock Tower and its wonderful views. It is just North of the Loop and makes walking in Chicago very easy.
We loved Chicago but would return just to stay at Sally's again.
