Welcome to the The Willows Hotel
Set in a historic landmark building in upscale Lincoln Park, and offering free Wi-Fi and continental breakfast, The Willows Hotel is a solid choice for Chicago lodging.
The four-story Willows sports chic European style that includes 19th-century French reproduction furnishings and patterned wall coverings. Its 55 rooms have cozy beds, spacious workstations, fully stocked minibars and free Wi-Fi. You can carb up for the day with muffins, bagels, toast, cereal and more at the free continental breakfast, then get a sugar fix with free afternoon cookies (there's 24-hour coffee and tea service in the lobby as well). Access to a fully equipped fitness center nearby is another plus for guests.
Located in swanky Lincoln Park, 12 minutes west of Lake Michigan, the Willows is 16 miles southeast of O'Hare International Airport and 17 miles northeast of Midway. A bus stop is two minutes from the hotel for a 20-minute ride to the Lincoln Park Zoo and a stroll through the next door Lincoln Park Conservatory's botanical gardens. You can dig your toes in the sand at North Avenue Beach (a 10-minute bus ride south) or take a spin on the 150-ft. Ferris wheel at Navy Pier, an 11-minute drive south.
A beautiful location, a charming French-inspired setting and worthwhile free extras are features our guests most enjoy at The Willows Hotel.

We really like the hotel, largely because of the staff and location, but next time we stay we'll bring a portable white noise machine.

Small comfortable clean hotel in a bustling neighborhood in Lakeview / Lincoln Park. Room was large and clean and made for a great sleep.

Great value for the quality of this hotel--our double queen room was spacious, and the stay included free continental breakfast and coffee & fruit 24/7. Historic building, with romantic dÃ©cor. Plenty of restaurants and conveniences located nearby, including a Wal-Mart. We will definitely be staying here again!

Chicago doesn't have a lot of great hotels outside the Loop. This is a hidden gem that should be appreciated for its location, its value, and its simplicity. The Willows Hotel isn't fancy, but it is everything you need in a vacation base of operations.
