Pros: The hotel foyer is decorated very quaintly; the fireplace and Animal framed heads in warm tones give The Willows Hotel a very "at home" feel. The interactive LED screen in the lobby with recommendations on various Chicago sites is helpful.
Cons: Although there are many nice touches, such as robes items to buy, very dated rooms. Carpet is noticeably worn and should be deep-cleaned/replaced. The light in the restroom is on a timer and after a couple minutes turns out, even if you are mid-shower.

Cozy and charming small hotel in the midst of a thriving neighborhood. This is a 100 year old establishment so the charm is wonderful. Very clean, attentive staff, and comfortable.

Pros: Lovely building, continental breakfast is great, coffee all the time and water pitchers ready with ice cold water. Room was comfortable. Had 2 king (maybe queen) size beds and lots of room to spread out. In room refrigerator and an honor system with the room goodies. Love the bathrobe they provided. Staff was friendly and helpful. Had nearby parking (extra) with in and out privileges. Loved the location and the neighborhood.
Cons: Would have been nice to have more shelving in the bathroom -- but, it is a 100 year old building. My husband would have liked a couch. The air conditioner was a little noisy. But would recommend this hotel to anyone (caveat: if people need efficient, bland hotel chains they would probably not like this -- and they would be missing out).
