Fabulous 8.6 From 76 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Well-maintained stately manor
From the moment we checked in we admired the high ceilings, beautiful artwork, gorgeous antique furniture, and stately grace of the Wheeler Mansion. Our host was very gracious, and we were pleased with our room and the overall ambience of the estate. Our bathroom was luxurious and spotless, and the breakfast delicious and filling. We were within easy walking distance of Michigan Avenue and the lakeshore, and the neighborhood was very safe. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Lots of charm, not so much other stuff.
Wheeler is 100% full of charm, and a very nice place to stay. But someone needs to put some money back into it. And train staff. During my stay we had some pretty good rain storms, and water came in behind the window and ran out on the sills. They also had some leakage in the main room. One of the antique chairs was soaked through. Service was questionable too. I never had my room cleaned, even after leaving the "refresh" sign on my door. When I checked in, the attendant wasn't very forthcoming with info, including correct time for breakfast and the access code to the internet. I had to call down to get it. Also, she kept my drivers license. And I didn't even notice until dinner that night. Luckily I didn't need it. I got it back that night. Additionally, when I got to my room initially, there were no washcloths, no robe, and old soap shavings in the soap dish in the shower. And, their answer to shampoo is to have a pump bottle on the counter next to the sink. But there is no place to put the bottle in the shower except the soap dish. Which I knocked off and broke it. Breakfast was great one morning, and extremely mediocre the other two. Dry eggs and not so great sausage. Plenty of fresh fruit, but no great breakfast food. Also, they didn't have any creamer, powder or otherwise for the coffee. Just flavored coffee and sugars. All three mornings. And the lighting was pitiful. I don't know how my wife would have put makeup on. I could barely shave.

Cool place to stay near convention center
An old mansion turned into a boutique hotel. Beautifully decorated, comfortable rooms, and much nicer than staying in the typical big box hotels. But be prepared for a lower level of service / attentiveness. Couldn’t find anyone to turn in my room key to on leaving at noon. On arrival at noon (2 days earlier) had to call the hotel (note- the phone number given by is their own number, and NOT the actual hotel) to be let in. Room was not made up after the first night - I guess because I didn’t hang up the “please freshen room” tag on the knob. Would definitely stay there again if I was going to be busy at the convention center.

Cozy little spot
Was in town for a business conference and really enjoyed my stay at the Wheeler Mansion. Attendant was helpful, room was comfy, and breakfast was above average. Much more interesting place to stay than the huge hotels nearby

The mansion was nice but I didn't get the room I was shown on booking site, felt more like a first come first serve
