The Willows was the hotel where I stayed on my second trip to Chicago. (On my first stay I had chosen a large, luxury hotel in the South Loop (Chicago Hilton) which was radically different in character and much higher in price). This hotel is located in Lakeview, an upscale neighborhood (wealthy class) close to Lincoln Park. It is a quiet residential neighborhood of low-rise buildings, with tree-lined streets. It has great charm and is full of restaurants and bars, but I have to admit I was wrong in my choice. Lakeview is a great place to live, but far from all the tourist attractions of the city, except those of Lincoln Park.
