the publishing house bed and breakfast chicago il

Located in the heart of the west loop lives the most luxurious bed and breakfast I’ve ever stayed at. The Publishing House B&B.

It’s not often you find a bed and breakfasts in the center or large cities. In fact, I’ve always known them to be these rural retreats but Publishing House goes against every thought (and expectation) I’ve had.

In fact, they were named one of the top 25 best hotels in Chicago by Conde Naste. From comfy beds to incredible art displays, I forgot I was even at a B&B. Never have I felt more at home.

Recently, I had the pleasure of staying here on a weekend getaway with my boyfriend. From the moment we checked in everything was amazing. However, I would say the real highlight of our stay was making friends with the property pugs. They were the cutest!

Cuteness overload! These dogs are seriously living their best life.

I cannot speak highly enough and hope that you too consider staying here if you find yourself in Chicago.

If you’re headed to Chicago and are in search of a unique place to stay in one of the hottest neighborhoods, then check-in to Publishing House B&B.

Keep reading for a full review of my recent stay.

How to Get to Publishing House from O’Hare

Car/Uber: 30 minutes

From O’Hare it was a $33 Uber ride.

Usually I like to take an Uber to and from the hotel, mostly because I hate hauling my luggage on city transportation. But you don’t have to.

Chicago’s train system is well equipped to get you where you need to go.

Train: 1 hour

The Blue Line runs a 24 hour service from the airport to downtown Chicago. Publishing House is in the West Loop, which is part of the downtown area.

Below is the full route from O’hare to Publishing House B&B.

Use the telephone to ring for someone to check you in if needed.


Enter through the blue door. You can’t miss it.

If no one is there to greet you just dial the phone number listed on the house telephone.

Expect to present an ID and card for incidentals per usual.

Since the property runs on a keypad entrance, the host will assign your access code. The only key you will have is the one to your room.

A staff member accompanies you to your room and gives you the rundown (i.e. how to access the features, breakfast times, etc.)

From there you are free to roam!

Awweee so in love

The Rooms

There are a total of 11 unique rooms each one uniquely designed with modern finishes.

My room had giant windows, comfy bed, television, plenty of outlets, and the cutest decor.

Additionally, the room was equipped with plenty of storage space and technology such as quality cooling/heating system and retractable shades to keep the sun out while you sleep.

Although we we’re only there for a long weekend, we had tons of luggage, so it was nice to store it away and not feel cluttered.

Thank you for providing soap that actually washed without leaving your skin dry af

What I appreciated the most where the bathroom amenities. They provide quality shampoos, conditioners, face wash, and lotion that might even be better than your own.

I always forget small things at home, face wash usually, so it was nice to have soap that actually washed the dirt away.

It’s the little things that count!

What do you cherish the most in a hotel? Bed or Bathroom?

Cute little reading nook under the stairs.

The third floor is where most of the entertainment takes place. You have:

Living Areas

Two living/lounge areas separated by a modern fireplace. Sit and relax over a game of chess or curl up to a good book.

By the way, you can buy some of the books you come by.

Dining Table

A giant dining table sits next to the living area. The property does wedding buyouts so this makes for the perfect gathering spot.

Free cookies in the cookie jar yumm!

Kitchen & Nook

There is a little nook where guests are free to make pressed coffee or grab a cookie from the cookie jar. Compliments of the staff. Be sure to thank them for the delicious homemade treats.

The kitchen is massive and where to go for a daily breakfast of course. I opted for a veggie omelet and was not disappointed.

Breakfast is between 7:30 am and 9:30 am on weekdays and 8:00 am to 10:00 am on weekends.

Grand Piano

For anyone who plays the piano –¬†feel free to sit down and take it away. It overlooks the entire floor. It’s sooo romantic hehe.

I got their Creme Brule, meat & cheese platter, and broccolini. Random I know, but all delicious.

Solo Salon

Though not officially part of the B&B, they are interconnected. It’s a full salon with hair, nail, and waxing services.

I sadly did not get to experience the salon first hand, but from what I gathered walking through, it was super cute and everyone looked happy.

Check out their services and book your appointment here.

Overall, Publishing House Bed and Breakfast is a great place to stay if you’re headed to Chicago, IL. Book you stay here.
