This divine 11-room inn two blocks from McCormick Place is popular with conventioneers. Built in 1870 by Chicago Board of Trade president Calvin T. Wheeler, it's one of the few mansions to survive the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. In 1997, it was rescued from the wrecking ball, restored to its former glory, and proclaimed a national landmark. All 11 rooms feature high ceilings, 19th-century furnishings, antiques, armoires, and velvet drapes. Ask for a room with a tub (some only have shower stalls), or for one of the four with their own gas fireplaces. Hotel-style amenities include Egyptian-cotton sheets, towels, and robes, multi-line phones, and large desks with high-speed Internet.
