The Wheelhouse Hotel3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I booked 2 rooms for family who were in town for a holiday weekend. The Wheelhouse was a wonderful choice. It's a relatively new hotel and the rooms and common areas are very thoughtfully designed. A vintage baseball theme carries throughout the hotel, it's very unique. Rooms are good sized with great bathrooms. I didn't sleep here but my family commented that the beds and rooms were comfortable. There's an attached restaurant and full bar in the basement which we met at a couple times. Staff was friendly and pizza was great. Location is just a block from Wrigley field. We were there during the offseason, but no matter the area is buzzing with other things to do. I imagine this hotel would make a great alternative to business travelers who are tired of staying downtown. Easy access to public transportation and a quick uber ride to the entire north side.
My son moved 2 blocks from this hotel so I decided to try it out. My trip was delayed a day because of weather, and the hotel was accommodating with the change in dates of arrival and departure. Check in was super fast and staff was friendly. The room was clean, the bed amazingly comfortable, and hotel quiet. I’ve found my go-to hotel when visiting my son. Oh, and there’s a great pizza place two doors down! Bonus.
Chose this hotel due to proximity of friends I was in town to visit and had a great stay. Beautifully done and cozy hotel. The staff was very helpful and super friendly and attentive. Aaron and Marcin provided great service and were super friendly!
I just stayed for my second time at the Wheelhouse hotel in January, and I absolutely loved my stay once again! I’ve been visiting from Wisconsin for my back tattoo sessions and fell in love with this unique hotel when I originally booked my first stay. Besides having a full bar/ restaurant next door it’s a ton of fun! The staff has always been so friendly as well (Aaron, and looking forward to my next visit in February.
This is a trendy boutique hotel, and the front desk is very personable and helpful I am a middle aged woman who stayed here over Christmas with my 89 year old mother. She loved the step in shower. The dining room on the main level and is warm and the bar in the basement is an ideal place for getting friends together in the heart of Wrigleyville. My daughter had her 30th birthday party there and the food was delicious; the best pizza I have had literally in years. The salads were inspired and people enjoyed the food and specialty cocktails and craft beer on tap. The bar decor was inviting, and everyone loved the bathrooms. Sounds funny, but people appreciated the well lit clean environment. I enjoy a dive bar as much as another person but sometimes you like to have nice and cozy. The only thing I would suggest as an improvement is a continental style breakfast along with coffee provided in the morning. We enjoyed our stay and loved the party. Out of town guests simply went up to their rooms after the party. Come springtime, the top deck will be open with a stunning view of the Chicago sky line. I look forward to going back.
Stayed for the first time. It was Christmas Eve and day, so the restaurant was closed. That posed a small problem, but we knew that going in. Staff was so welcoming. Laid back vibe for sure. Comfy bed and phenomenal location.
We booked a group block of rooms for 2 days. The hotel and staff was great. We loved the location and all the special touches throughout the hotel. It was very thoughtful! We would definitely use this hotel again... book soon. This place will be HOT come baseball and concert season.
Excellent service, clean rooms and very comfortable! My wife was happy about everything bring so close. Pete's coffee and Starbucks is our favorite, both are close to the Wheelhouse. Briar street theatre is a couple blocks. Thank you for a great stay!
I enjoyed my stay at the Wheelhouse , mostly. The fact that they don't have parking is a hassle! Also, the day we checked in the elevator was broken so we had to carry our luggage up ourselves...they really don't have a large staff on hand. Finally, our room had this strange humming sound coming out of the walls all night long which made falling to sleep difficult. All that said, it's a fun place. The location is basically right across the street from Wrigley, so it would be a great place for a Cubs weekend. The rooms are small but trendy and functional with everything you need. the location was great for us because it was within walking distance of my daughter's apartment.
The hotel is located within walking distance of Wrigley and as such has many bars and places to dine right outside the door. Use Parking Panda to find cheap parking within a block as there is no parking with the hotel. The only downside which is why I had to ding the hotel a star is the lack of a mini fridge. If I spend $200 for a room a fridge is expected. So I had to run out to a liquor store and buy a foam cooler and a bag of ice. There is an ice machine but it is not self serve and while the desk clerk was more than willing to get me a bucket of ice I did not want to be ringing the desk every few hours for more ice
