The Welcome Inn Manor B&B on Michigan Avenue is a unique historic home built in 1893 located just 5 minutes from McCormick Convention Center- a bit off the beaten path of conventional hotel lodging... blah blah blah.

Guests from around the world feel welcome and are usually provided FREE RIDES to the convention center. Weary travelers seem to love our ALL INCLUSIVE LODGING PACKAGE FOR GUESTS STAYING 3 DAYS OR MORE.

We offer bikes to encourage guests to take a leisure ride on the lakefront and nearby US Cellular Baseball Field, Illinois Institute of Technology, University of Chicago, DuSable Museum and the Illinois College of Optometry. Guests love to take photos of Chicago's lakefront at dusk and the homes of President Barack Obama, former residents- Nat King Cole, and the Marx Brothers a few minutes away. There is easy access to the public transportation system via bus, train and little to no traffic via automobile in this part of the Near Southside.

Enjoy a delicious breakfast each morning served in the dining room or kitchen from 9-11 am. We will do our best to accommodate any food allergies or dietary preferences.

I was taking my son to visit The University of Chicago. My wife found the Welcome Inn Manor while looking for a hotel for us. She always finds us great places and I am so glad she found this one, only 3 miles from the school. The house was warm and welcoming and beautifully decorated. Mell treated me and my son like new friends, offering anything we needed including advice on great places to eat and things to see. In the mornings, we were treated to fantastic home cooking that you cannot get in a restaurant. My son will be attending UofC so we will be visiting this bed and breakfast often in the next several years. Thanks Ang and Mell!

Phenominal experience!! Mel & Angie were awesome hosts, definitely made me feel welcomed and part of the family. Very beautiful home, cozy, with beautiful decor/artwork. To not be a trained chef Mell makes a scrumptious, "world famous" breakfast. Will definitely stay here again when I'm in the Chicago area!

Our recent trip to Chicago was greatly enhanced by our stay at the Welcome Inn Manor. Mell and Angie have lovingly restored a great home and enhanced it with wonderful art and historic information. We were made to feel completely at home and given wonderful ideas on things to do and places to dine including a trip to Room 43 for some wonderful jazz. Mell’s “artistic” breakfasts were all we could hope for. Our room was comfortable and wonderfully furnished. With easy access to Chicago’s transit system, the Welcome Inn Manor proved to be a great place to stay. Dave and Diane Nov 2012

Mel and Angie have created the most wonderful memories of Chicago for our whole family. On arriving at the Welcome Inn Manor we were invited to relax and sip wine by the extremely friendly and well informed Alecia. As we toured the house with Alecia our mouths dropped to the floor at the sheer elegance and beauty of the house with its magnificent carved wood work and early twentieth century features. Mel and Angie succeed in combining an atmosphere that is both peaceful and exciting with their considerate and down to earth hospitality. Our children enjoyed all the kindness and attention they received and felt completely at home. The hosts went out of their way to ensure that the children thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Mel created his "World Famous Obstacle Course" for the children in the back garden by combining skipping, juggling, croquet and various activies which they really enjoyed playing. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for Mel and Angie, every small detail was considered. The breakfast was fresh and delicios each morning and included very interesting facts about Chicago along with the all important restaurant tips! We recommend staying at The Welcome Manor Inn with Mel and Angie to anyone visiting Chicago. Prepare yourselves for a unique stay at a fairy tale house with some incredible people. Thankyou Mel and Angie put the kettle on we're coming!!!!! The Valis.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Welcome Inn Manor. The experience was outstanding. The Inn has a very warm ambiance, the decore is fabulous and the Inn keepers were attentive to our every need and request. The food was FABULOUS, and the hospitality and conversations we had with the Inn keepers was off the chain! We highly recommend the Welcome Inn Manor as an alternative to hotel accomendations in the city of Chicago and surrounding suburbs. We have wonderful memories and made lasting friendships and will be returning as often as possible.

Welcome Inn Manor stay Jan 28-30 2012 Wow, wow, and wow that's the feeling we got from our stay at Welcome Inn Manor bed and breakfast of Chicago. Wow, was my first impression of this beautifully restored mansion. The many antiques and sculptures were amazing to behold. My second wow came from our host Mell’s cooking. This man delighted us each morning with a very tasty and wonderfully made breakfast. This was a weekend outing to celebrate my wife’s countless 21’s birthdays. It was our first time at a bed and breakfast as well. And I must say we are hooked, thanks to Mell and Angie’s inviting and charming setting. Mell I will be calling you soon to set up for my big five O birthday party there. Oh, I almost forgot the third wow was for the way you guys help make my wife feel, she wasn’t to sure about going, being, we had never stayed at a B and B before. Nothing she ever found on the internet really caught her eye. She truly loved your place and look forward to coming back. A added wow would have to be for the suite, it was so roomy and comfortable. The whole house made it difficult to leave. Jacuzzi tub with a fire place, and large comfy bed also with a fire place, the Nat King Cole suite is a must stay. Thanks Much Have a bless 1 The Loves

Welcome Inn Manor is a gem hidden on Chicago's South Side. The property inside and out is a five star feast for the eyes on the history and legacy of Chicago's Bronzeville area. Mel and Angie are consummate hosts who are as warm and interesting as the decor of this lovely spot. If you are an interested traveler, Welcome Inn Manor is a wonderful place to rest on your way to discovering and enjoying Chicago.
