Bottom Line

This 52-room boutique is set in a lovely Victorian building in Lakeview, a 15-minute walk from Wrigley Field and half a block from Lake Michigan. The property has few amenities (no pool, no spa, no restaurant) and is far from most tourist sites, but offers some nice freebies, including coffee and tea, continental breakfast, passes to a nearby local gym, and Wi-Fi. Clean rooms have 42-inch flat-screen TVs, bathrobes and mini-bars, but the decor is basic and some rooms are on the small side.

Somewhat plain English-inspired decor

The room decor -- cream-colored walls, sturdy wood furniture, and white-and-green bedding -- is meant to evoke the style of an English country estate. The overall effect is homey but basic, and a little plain, and standard rooms are on the small side. Suites are large and have separate living areas (some with pull-out sofas).

  • 42-inch flat-screen TV with Room Linx Interactive (interactive interface with on-demand movies, music and games) and Mp3 connectivity
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Bathrobes
  • Alarm clock
  • Minibar
  • Iron and ironing board
  • Shower/tub combo
