I had business in Chicago and thought it would be a good idea to bring my college-age niece with me since she was on spring break. I wanted her to experience the luxury and warmth of Bishop's Hall as I had stayed there once before. Sad for us, it rained every day of our 4-day stay, but thanks to hosts Sam and Chuck, the sunshine of their hospitality trumped the dreary weather. They met us at the airport and gave us a quick overview of the city, then dropped us off to shop til we dropped. Of course they provided us with umbrellas, as well as advice on the best places to eat, shop and be entertained. My niece is vegetarian, and their recommendation of a restaurant couldn't have been better. I am not...and they steered us (pun intended!) to the BEST steak I've ever eaten! All their recommendations were spot on! Bishop's Hall is immaculate with great attention to the little luxuries: like special toiletries, gourmet chocolate on your pillow, the fluffiest towels ever, soft background music, and fresh flowers everywhere. They have figured out how to indulge ALL your senses! It is located in a quiet neighborhood so we got great rest and felt absolutely safe going for a morning jog. Breakfast is an experience with exquisite food exquisitely served. We returned home glowing from having been made to feel so special. My niece had an experience she will never forget...and I can't wait to return. I too, like many of the other reviewers, will never stay anywhere else when I'm in Chicago.
