We stayed at The Homestead just last week (Aug 20, 2013) for a couple of nights. It was love at first sight! Our family has been to Chicago many, many times and we have always stayed downtown. This time one of our children was living in Evanston temporarily so we chose to stay there and picked The Homestead after reading reviews. If you, like us, love old buildings and are not just looking for a new, shiny hotel, chose The Homestead. It is a gracious old hotel and we loved the antique feel. Our room was large and well equipped. We chose a small suite to accommodate 3 people, and it was much larger than I thought it would be. It was only slightly more expensive than a standard room too. We had a couch/living area, a dining area and a nice well equipped small kitchen. It even had a small dressing room off the bedroom with tons of hanging space. The staff could not have been nicer. Mary, at the front desk, even answered a phone call from the car when we were coming into town and gave us explicit directions to the hotel. My husband enjoyed having his free breakfast out on their lovely front veranda in the morning. A great hotel, in a charming neighborhood and a pleasant experience in all ways.
