“Welcome Inn Manor”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Welcome Inn Manor is a WONDERFUL place to stay! The accommodations were incredible, including a luxurious bed, Jacuzzi tub, spa-style shower, and historic decor. The location was perfect, nestled inside a historic neighborhood just a few miles away from all the downtown museums and attractions. Mell cooked a huge, incredible homemade breakfast each morning, according to guests' schedules, and offered complimentary shuttle service to downtown attractions. We really felt more like we were staying with old friends than at a B&B. My husband and I loved the personal feel of Welcome Inn Manor, and we would stay there again in a heartbeat if traveling to Chicago in the future.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Nat King Cole Suite, so I couldn't speak to the other rooms necessarily, but we...

Mell and Ange, the Innkeepers of Welcome Inn Manor, take hospitality to an unsurpassable level. Breakfast is a sumptuous surprise every morning. Transportation is easily available and the shopping advice is invaluable.
We were about settling our son as a freshman at UChicago and he was able to stay with us for the first 2 nights. The Lady D suite had everything we could want to meet our hectic schedule, including a desperately needed safety pin. Meeting other guests over breakfast was refreshing and rewarding. We made good use of the shuttle to go south to UC’s campus and north for shopping and sightseeing.
We have made friends in Chicago so that we are now eager to return for graduation and, hopefully, before that too. What a blessing!

Room Tip: Lady D is simple and efficient as well as being filled with a soothing décor.

My husband and I had just made a 13 hour drive from New York to drop our son at college. Mel & Angie, the proprietors of Welcome Manor Inn were so welcoming and relaxed. Their beautiful mansion is filled with art, much of it offering an opportunity to sink into the richness of African American culture through paintings, jazz, and photographs. Mel cooked the most delicious breakfasts and even took moments to explain his cooking secrets for poached eggs and grits. We needed to buy some second-hand furniture and a new bed for our son and Mel steered us in the right direction. The rooms are beautiful. We had a massive bathroom with a whirlpool tub. You could hear jazz when you came into the house at night. Basically, Welcome Manor provided a rich stay for us in Chicago in a gracious and warm manner. This will be our place to stay when in Chicago. Michele Araujo & Adam Simon

After a recent visit to Welcome Inn Manor, I cannot wait to go back! Mell and Angie were warm and helpful.....the care and attention that they have put into maintaining this historic home is simply amazing....from the original fire places to the art work which really tells the history of Chicago. Were it not for the close proximity to the city of Chicago I could have stayed inside of the Welcome Inn for my entire stay. Truly a delight!

My wife and I celebrated our first anniversary here, and had fun for an extended weekend around the downtown Chicago area.
The Welcome Inn Manor is located close to so many interesting things, aside from easy transportation via train or car.
Mell's cooking was fabulous, both Angie and Mell were VERY accommodating and friendly, and had some great advice on places to check out, many of which were interesting and also budget-riendly. (We had NO idea Chicago was such a BYOB restaurant establishment!). Even their dog Sinbad was very friendly, well behaved, and good natured.
Our stay was in the Lady D Suite, which was clean, comfortable, quiet, and cozy. I was going to say that the room was beautiful - which it is - but really this applies to the entire house. From the moment you walk in (front or back, it didn't seem to matter) you were greeted with an overall feeling of a warm, welcoming place, with amazing history and architecture that has been painstakingly preserved.
Great job, Mell and Angie! Thank you again! We will definitely be staying again soon!
Joe and Kaylee.

My wife and I stayed at Welcome Inn while we were in town for a business conference. The conference was at McCormick Place which was a quick 5 minute drive with no traffic each morning which was great. Mell and Angie made us feel at home. The room we were in (Nat King Cole suite) was great and spacious. Bathroom had an awesome whirlpool tub and shower. We were sad it was the middle of summer and we couldn't take advantage of the two fireplaces. Mell's breakfasts were great and he gave us some great tips for dinner each night. We will stay here again!

Fabulous stay in this historic home turned bed-and-breakfast. Mell and Angie were gracious hosts who accommodated our late arrival and quirky schedule. We stayed at the Welcome Inn Manor because of a family event, but it would be great for business travelers too.

The room was wonderful and the breakfast worth lingering over. Mell also had some great recommendations for local restaurants. I used to live in Chicago, but he introduced me to some new places, giving me a deeper appreciation for my “second home”.
