The Willows is an older hotel on the north end of Lincoln Park, in the city but not downtown. The location is FANTASTIC if you are looking for a real Chicago neighborhood experience. It is one building off Broadway St. which offers everything: restaurants, shops, theater, bars and lively/vibrant/fun people. You can walk to the waterfront (Diversey harbor) about 5 blocks away. You can walk to the "L" and get anywhere (including downtown) in minutes. A bit further walk to Lincoln Park Zoo to the south or Wrigley Field to the north if you are in a walking mood. The hotel is surrounded by apartment and condo buildings down a quiet, short street which is charming, homey and lovely. The residents are friendly and boy oh boy do they love walking their dogs! We met so many people and dogs in this spot-it was nuts! The room/hallways/furnishings are dated but CLEAN. The exec king room is plenty big with a closet, fridge, desk, dresser, iron/board, robes, nice toiletries...everything you need. But trust me, you won't be in your room for long-too much to see and do right outside your door but far enough away to make you feel like you "live" in this charming neighborhood. The employees were very helpful and accommodating. Recommendations: Wilde for dinner, Stella's Diner for breakfast. We will return here again and again!
