The Beadle Residences at Hyde Park
Reviewed 23 June 2008

We returned some weeks ago from some days at the Beaddle Inn in Hyde Park, Chicago. Is an appartment hotel that has just started to work.
We were obliged to book here because of a Medical Meeting at Chicago and as usual all hotels were sold out. We were 4 collegues travelling from France and booked a 2 room suite.
One of us had some problems to find the hotel, from O'Hare Airport he took the metro to Chigaco downtown then some bus and he got lost in between. For the rest of us, we had no problems to get there, we decided to take a taxi because we were tired and shuttles dont go to Hyde Park (the taxi fare was around $70 US dollars). Other good option would have been to take a shuttle, bus or metro to Chicago Downtown and then take the Metra ($2,3 US single trip, $20 US 10 rides and around $ 5 US weekend fare) to 53rd Street HypePark station. The metra station is around 5 minutes away walking.
During our stay we came back to the hotel very late and did not have any problems in the neighboorhood, it was always very calm because of the University and there were security cars patrolling all the time (also at night).
They had just opened the hotel-appartment business, so we had some minor problems (one of my collegues was not able to receive a call from his wife in France but to call in town was ok. There was no "real" reception and we weer provided with a mobile phone number in case of any problem, fortunately the first day we arrived around 17:00 there was someone from the staff waiting to give us our keys).
The rooms and furniture were new, very nice decorated with a completely equiped american kitchen. Flat screen with cable TV. Hot water all the time. One of the inconveniences is that the Hotel is not very practical if you want to hang out late night near Michican Avenue and the Loop, Metra train leaves Millenium Station in Chicago in direction to Hyde Park every 45 minutes or more until 1:00 am. A trip by taxi from Chicago downtown to Hyde Park at 1:00 was around $30 US. For those wanting to relax after a long congress day is the perfect place (if you like to cook!). There is a fast food hamburger chain nearby and for breakfast a very good PancakeHouse in front of the Metra station.
There are other restaurants that we did not have the time to explore and a big book store.
For people going to Mc Cormick place (like us) check the Metra timetable because you can be waiting for almost 30 min or even more if you miss the train. It is a 10 minute trip and you get directly to Mc Cormicks.

I am sure with time they will be able to solve those minor issues, Wayne the manager is a serious and respectable guy. I had a problem checking out, my credit card was charged thrice by mistake but he reimbursed me immediately. Oh, surprise! Back home when I received my bank account statement there was a difference of more than $80 US between the 3 mistaken charges and reimbursements. I called my bank in France, they said it was a problem at the hotel, I contacted Wayne who was also surprised to hear this and even if we did not know what was the problem he accepted the responsability (it was their mistake) and reimbursed me the difference.
We definitely recommend this Hotel appartment.
