Highs & Lows

  • The hotel mixes heritage and modernity extremely well - you feel like you’re sleeping in a piece of history.

  • Wicker Park is a perfect area to wander around and there is always something going on (great music venues and restaurants in close proximity).

  • Le Labo products leave you smelling nice n’ clean.

  • The second floor café is a great place to relax and catchup on work.

  • Your hotel room key has an energy-saving light feature. Lights will only turn on when in place, and automatically turns everything off as you leave.

  • The hotel is very close to a train line- great for accessibility, but might be a little loud later in the evening.
