Chicago, like most major cities across the globe, is home to no shortage of world-class hotels. While the big chains occupy well-known addresses and come with all the glitz and glam you’d expect from names like Hyatt and Hilton, they’re not the only top-notch accommodation options Chicago has to offer. The Second City also has a variety of smaller bed and breakfasts you’re more likely to see in a quint rural setting, rather than a major metropolis. The seven on this list offer a unique place to rest your head after taking in all the city has to offer. There’s an Italian-style villa in Lincoln Park, a celebrity-themed option in the Gold Coast and another that shares its space with a tavern that’s earned a Michelin Star seven years and counting.
