You almost expect to find staff in period dress within Wheeler Mansion, a gorgeous home that was built 1 year before the Great Chicago Fire and managed to survive the disaster. Located just a 5-minute walk from McCormick Place Convention Center, the historic property is actually a huge draw for those among the convention crowd who are looking for a place with more character than the nearby Hyatt. The 11 rooms, which range in size and layout, are all decorated a bit differently, although the antiques, luxurious linens, and elegance are consistent with the era in which the home was built. Out back is lovely outdoor space, with a peaceful porch and garden. Every morning, guests are offered an elaborate complimentary buffet breakfast, and even parking is free.
