This is such a lovely hotel. Why stay in a generic and bland hotel? The reservation process was smooth and check in was great. We were looking for something out of the way, quiet and leisurely and that is exactly what we got. I thought that Stephanie did a great job explaining what the hotel policies were and I feel that if breakfast at 9:30am is not something you are happy with, I think you should consider staying somewhere else. Also, this is a B&B, you are just not going to get the same 24hr in-your-face service that one would get in a hotel. If you are interested in that, again, stay in another place. Don't go to a B&B for that type of thing and then complain that you are not getting it. Not fair to compare apples to oranges. If you want something different and quietly unobtrusive, then DEFINTELY STAY at the WHEELER!
My husband and I really enjoyed the location and the history of the mansion. We also really enjoyed moring coffee in the front room before breakfast reading quietly by the windows. There were some lovely books on the historical houses in Chicago as well as some art books. I would suggest to the owners to consider a book shelf with additional books about the history of Chicago to help entertain guests.
My only actual complaint was that there were two very small bed pillows on the bed and I am used to using two for myself, so my husband used a throw pillow instead. That being said, the room was very clean, spacious, and inviting.
The website was also very helpful in our plans for outings and activities. We took a tour with the DeTours company that the hotel recommended and it really enhanced our stay. The tour guide was knowledgeable and it showed.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you to Stephanie and all the staff for making our anniversary weekend one we won't soon forget. We'll be back!
