5.47km from Sam's Chicken and RibMy husband and I stayed for one night at the Wheelhouse Hotel in February. We were impressed by the helpful staff and stylish rooms. The decor was unique and colorful. The location is perfect for anyone who plans to attend a game in the summer. We noticed a large ice skating rink right down the road which could be fun in the winter. Some things to note: even though it was off-season, Clark St is very busy with many party bars. We could hear a lot of partying and yelling outside our window until early in the morning. If you can't easily tune out music and voices, you might want to request a room on the top floor and wear earplugs. You might also think about bringing a travel fan or something to create white noise. Our room was neatly decorated with black and white checkered tiles in the bathroom and a rainhead shower. I would guess that all bathrooms have barn doors that slide open on rollers because we could hear the door rolling from the floor above us. The barn door design takes up less space, but it isn't a quiet choice. One suggestion I have would be for the hotel to install simple hooks on the inside of the bathroom doors. Ours did not have any sort of lock. We had a king bed which was definitely on the firm side. The king bed does take up a lot of space in the room, and my husband hit his leg on the corner of the bed twice. (It takes some people a little longer to learn!) If you need a lot of space, you might want to select a different room. The lobby area is nice and relaxing. Lots of sofa space to read or drink coffee. Please note that the hotel restaurant is not open at this time. From what I could tell, it looks like it's going to be really awesome when it does open. There are plenty of bars and restaurants up and down Clark St. so it wasn't a problem for us. The hotel offers free Cracker Jack snacks (in a bag) which was appreciated. Parking -- note that the hotel does not offer any parking. I used the Spot Hero app to secure parking in the Addison and Clark garage which is located right down the street from the hotel. The garage is super nice and well lit. I paid $18 for 24 hours. Overall, we had a really nice stay at the Wheelhouse and hope to return when the restaurant is open.
