    Loved it

    Our stay at the wheeler mansion was an amazing experience. Didn’t feel like a hotel, it was more like a get away vacation.

  • 6.0.Good

    The building is exactly what you want it to be; a big old grandiose mansion. On the negative side however, the parking isn't obvious and it was almost impossible to understand the staff on the phone when I called and asked where to park. They charged me more than what Orbitz listed and when I asked them about it they blamed Orbitz and said they couldn't fix the price. Also, every chair in the building is horribly uncomfortable to sit in.

    The restoration of this property is beautiful. So is the furniture. Our host, David, was very friendly and helpful. Our room with a fireplace was awesome. Everything was great. Celebrated 30 year anniversary with my wife.

    Back to the Mansion we go

    This is our second time to stay here. It was a great time from start to finish. Great food too! We will be back. We enjoyed learning of the history of the mansion.

    Step back into history with all the modern comforts you expect in a luxury property. We loved the spacious living room, the lovely grounds, and the high ceilings throughout the house. It felt like we had they keys to our own mansion for three days! Just steps from the McCormick Place Convention Center, the Wheeler Mansion is a gracious antidote to staying in the soulless mega hotels attached to the convention center.

    David was very friendly and extremely accommodating. We called to ask if we could park early and he was happy to accommodate us and get us in the room early. Room was very cute, service was excellent, morning breakfast consisted of fruit, yogurt, quiches and sausage. Not your typical depersonalized hotel experience which we loved. Highly recommend and would not hesitate to stay again when coming to Chicago!

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Good: Stately and elegant facility, beautiful courtyard, friendly and accommodating grounds-keeper, excellent location for our purposes. Bad: TV remote didn't work, leaky faucet, toilet that would not flush, chair leg fell off when we tried to sit on it, smell of gas around the fire place required changing rooms. Conclusion: Restoration was exquisite. Maintenance will hopefully be next in line.

    Not worthy, inconvenient

    It is not worthy to pay that much for the room.(maybe half price would be acceptable )The room was so dark and made me feel not comfortable. And didn’t clean for several days. I would not stay there at all.

    I reserved a stay to attend a business function at McCormick Place. Very friendly host for the whole stay. The building inside and out was beautiful. Wonderful breakfast served each morning. This was a gem of a place to stay in. Thank you for the wonderful experience! Highly recommend!
