Concierge.com's insider take:
Expect an all-Chicago experience at this 1886 Lincoln Park Victorian owned by Andy Shaw, a local TV reporter, and his B&B-guru wife Mary. Rooms here are named after famous Chicago writers: There's a Mike Royko Room with an antique three-quarter bed, a Studs Turkel Suite in the coach house apartments, and a romantic Nelson Algren and Simone de Beauvoir Suite with a Jacuzzi tub and view of the Sears Tower. Chicago-style blues, jazz, and Irish music waft through the house. Need advice on scoring tickets to a ball game, the theater, or a hot restaurant? The Shaws have the 411 on everything Chicago.
