In a landscape filled with mega-hotels and Airbnb rentals galore, there’s something extra special about a good old bed and breakfast. Especially one as good as this. The quaint but impressive Publishing House has 11 unique rooms (from cozy to XL) that are kitted out in cowhide rugs, clawfoot tubs and funky vintage furniture. Each room is wildly different, giving guests an excuse to return for more again and again. As much as you won’t want to leave your room in the morning, one whiff of breakfast will surely draw you out of bed (it’s very good here).
Massive hotel chains aren't for everyone (though, that being said, Chicago does boast some of the best hotels, which you should totally check out). Thankfully, the Windy City has an impressive assortment of boutique properties that trade size for warm, personalized service and a huge helping of character. And those are things are like in our hotels here at Time Out. Whether it's your first time here or you're planning a cheeky staycation, these boutique hotels make a cozy backdrop when you're away from home. Our top picks range from a stylish stunner in Wicker Park to a British import crowned by one of the city’s best rooftop pools. With choices like these, you'll be packing your bags in no time. Happy vacations, people. Or maybe even a staycation? Because any excuse to stay in some of these...
