wedding weekend

Pros: The unique location.
Cons: I would like to have more options for obtaining coffee in the morning.
Location: Downtown Oak Park, Frank Lloyd Wright home.
The Hotel is very clean and quaint. I love the size of the rooms with the kitchen and table in each room.

From the minute we walked we felt transported to a different time when everyone treated each other with dignity and courtesy. The desk clerk was warm and welcoming and did I mention courteous? The building is classic 1920’s architecture and the inside is luxurious in the style of the era. The room was large, comfortable and quiet. Housekeeping was there when necessary. I would stay here again, with free parking, ten miles from the loop, the Green Line a short walk away we didn’t need to concern ourselves with getting around try to park in busy Chicago.
