If you are planning on going to Chicago, then you have to book this place.
It is great!!
We arrived and were greeted by Ray, who showed us the around the property.
We then sat down, he mapped out the great locals spots to visit, including a huge variety of restaurants, gave us maps, set us up with train tickets..he thinks of everything to get you started in Chicago.
We were invited to help ourselves to bottled water all day, everyday, ...where on earth has any hotel every given away a bottle of water!!
we could help ourselves to other snacks too throughout the day.
I read the reviews about his breakfasts...and thought they were just a bit over the top...but the breakfast at Rays really is better than the reviews!!
As you sit around the breakfast table viewing the menu, you easily start to chat away with the other clever guests who have found Rays place! So you gain more insight into what to do on your stay.
The rooms were extremely clean and spacious...we had "the Room with a View"
the bathroom was great, and the towels big, thick and fluffy.
We could use the laundry facilities if we wanted...
Would recommend that you head downstairs to the laundry, throw on a load of washing, then hit either the Sauna or the steam room as you wait ...what luxury...best laundry day I have ever had!
Would recommend Rays Bucktown Bed and Breakfast without hesitation and would love to be back there someday myself!
