Reservations are required.  We do not accept late arrivals or walk-ins.

Check-in: Check in is always by appointment and our preferred check-in is between 2 and 6 pm daily.  Special arrangements can be made in advance for checking in between 6 – 10 pm and should be arranged a minimum of 72 hours in advance.

If you are arriving before 1 pm, we can arrange for early drop off of your luggage and you can return when your room is ready at 2 pm or later.  We understand that flights can be delayed and Chicago traffic heavier than you ever imagined, so check with us to see if you wish to arrange a late “self” check-in ASAP.

“Self” Check-in:  We can generally accommodate guests if they need to arrive after 6 pm – you must check with us if we can have someone available or if you will need to pre-arrange a “self” check-in.  This means we will set up a key-entry lockbox on the front gate or doorknob and you will find your room and parking without our help.   We are early-to-bed and early-to rise innkeepers (to get those yummy freshly baked muffins and breakfasts made every morning) and we no longer check-in guests after 10  pm.

We do understand that weather and heavy traffic can cause unforeseen delays; however, if you have not arrived by 6:00 pm or been confirmed for a late or a “self” check-in  you will be considered a “No Show” (see Cancellations).
