Back to the Mansion we go
This is our second time to stay here. It was a great time from start to finish. Great food too! We will be back. We enjoyed learning of the history of the mansion.

Fair 4.0
Not worthy, inconvenient
It is not worthy to pay that much for the room.(maybe half price would be acceptable )The room was so dark and made me feel not comfortable. And didn’t clean for several days. I would not stay there at all.

I reserved a stay to attend a business function at McCormick Place. Very friendly host for the whole stay. The building inside and out was beautiful. Wonderful breakfast served each morning. This was a gem of a place to stay in. Thank you for the wonderful experience! Highly recommend!

Big Bang for Buck @ Marvelous Mansion
Fantastic boutique hotel experience, with quiet, beautifully adorned rooms, delicious breakfasts, friendly service (thanks David), and 5min walk to McCormick Place Conference Center. Highly recommend to anyone interested in alternative to large hotel experience.

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.
LLOYD, us2 night romance trip
Good 6.0
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.
