Fodor's Review

Designed in French Provincial style, the lobby of this 1920s hotel opens onto a tree-lined street in Lakeview, just three blocks from the lake and central to stores, restaurants, and movie theaters. A prime location and proximity to the El make it a top choice; the fact that it underwent a top-to-bottom makeover in 2014—which included new furniture, paint, carpeting, and linens for the guest rooms—is an added bonus. The complimentary Continental breakfast and afternoon cookies make this boutique hotel an inviting alternative to local B&Bs.
