I've been locked up in the house since early March and I needed a change. A little getaway from everything, so my husband booked a night at the Wheeler Mansion. Since the moment I stepped into the courtyard I felt like I was in another country. Everything so beautiful and antique. We were greeted atbthe door snd shown to our room. The place was Immaculate and so expensive looking. In the morning we were cooked breakfast which was fantastic. I absolutely can not wait to go back even its by myself. The place is clean, room was clean, comfortable and cozy. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a place in a good neighborhood for even one night. You won't regret it!

The hotel was beautiful and the manager was very helpful and made a wonderful breakfast. The beds were comfortable with nice linens. We could not have asked for a better stay or more convenient location to museums and the city.

Had the opportunity to stay at this “Hidden Gem Boutique Hotel” for the convention At McCormick Place, which is Conveniently located within three minutes walk. Was taken back by all the little details that made the room so elegant, classy and extraordinarily comfortable. From the pressed sheets, fluffy towels, robes and slippers to the in-room convenient business amenities. Checking in was a breeze and I was able to check in early. David assisted me to book an in-room massage and had some great local recommendations for dinner. Traditionally I pass on breakfast, but the smells and aesthetics surpassed any expectations. It’s rare that I feel so refreshed after a four day business trip. This is my new home away from home for my monthly trip to Chicago. A sincere thank you to all The Wheeler Mansion staff!!!

What a treat! The Wheeler Mansion is a little gem in the heart of Chicago. Traveling back in time to a place that was slow, quiet and peaceful. If you want beautiful accommodations without any fuss, this is the place for you. The staff is quiet, helpful and unassuming. They move about the beautiful house quietly allowing guests to enjoy the facility. I recommend going with a small group to allow you to utilize the entire facility. My friends and I named this property “grandma’s house“. If you remember the time when you visited grandma and the floors creaked ever so slightly but everything was pristine and clean. This is that place. The towels are truly soft and the property is truly cared for.

Dear Important Guest, Thank you for your kind words for my staff and my hotel. I purchased this building for 10K almost 30 years ago. My kids have grown up in the business with a passion to offer beautiful accomadations featuring the historic Mansions of Chicago brought into a modern age. Every day I come to work with our great staff... I am inspired by their kindness to our guests and pride in our facility. Thank you for taking the time to validate that our hard work and passion is recognized by all who stay. About those towels..... I took many of showers wrapping myself numerous of times till I found the right one from Turkey! They say Life is in the details but actually one important guest recognizing we care is all we need! We look forward to the opportunity to host your next visit to Chicago! Happy Travels! Debra
