"Comfortable and very pleasant"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed February 18, 2019 NEW
This was my second stay at this hotel. It is very low-key and easy to come and go with no fuss. Dan, who took my initial call to make the reservation, happened to be working at the front desk while I was there. He is so gracious and helpful that it made my stay even more pleasant. The coffee in the lobby is excellent, the room has all the amenities you need, and you have free access to a gym across the street. It feels like a home away from home (especially with Dan there to greet you!). It's not a fancy place and it's an old hotel but as others have said, it's warm, welcoming, and a nice place to stay.

"Even in the grips of the polar vortex"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed February 06, 2019 NEW
This very small, very quaint Chicago hotel in the residential neighborhood of Lakeview was warm and wonderful, even (or maybe especially) during the polar vortex that locked the city in a deep freeze. From the gracious greeting from Dan at check-in to the complimentary continental breakfast before check-out, I found The Willows to be an excellent place to stay in the city and even found myself wondering why I didn't take advantage of the cheap winter hotel prices in Chicago more often. While my small queen-bed room did not offer a view, sitting in the common area by the fireplace more than made up for it, especially as the street view was a winter wonderland. Lots of good restaurant options nearby, and Dan kindly offered to share his knowledge of the area. All in all, a very nice experience.

"Great hospitality and staff"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 24, 2019 NEW
Loved my stay. The staff were amazingly nice and went above and beyond to help out. Juan and Dan were specially nice. I had a job interview and Juan even gave me a ride to my destination when it was really cold in the morning which I truly do appreciate. Definitely recommend it and will be staying there again if ever in Chicago.

"Great value for your money with amazing staff!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 19, 2019
The hotel is located in a perfect spot in Chicago, easy to get to and from, close to public transportation - buses and the loop. I walked to the loop and was in downtown quickly and easily. Amenities are good, rooms are clean. This isn't a fancy hotel, so adjust your expectations accordingly, but a warm shower and a clean bed is really all I was after. The lobby has a wood burning fireplace and breakfast was adequate. For the price of the room, the amenities were great! But the real stars are the staff - the hospitality I received from Linda, Juan, and Dan was unparalleled, including a ride to my interview early morning with Juan who had just finished his night shift and offered to take me on his way.
