Chic in Chicago: On a Budget at Longman & Eagle

SPACESLauren Caron3 Comments

I just booked a hotel room for our trip to Chicago in June.  The total cost was under $350.00 for 4 nights!  I'm so excited about where we're staying because it was just a few weeks ago when we decided we were going and the next day, I randomly heard about Longman & Eagle Inn.  Not only is this Inn located in the bustling neighborhood of Logan Square, the gastro pub style restaurant  downstairs has earned a Michelin Star.  Additionally the rooms at Longman & Eagle are aesthetically beautiful, "Casual yet considered."

Designed by Cody Hudson, the inn features woodwork by Robert McAdams throughout, original art by artists including Stephen Eichorn, Cody Hudson and Virgil Wong.  Aesthetically, the rooms are designed from a masculine perspective with raw materials like wood, brick and industrial styled accessories.

The room prices start at $75 per night and the most expensive room only reaching $200 per night. As for service, the inn runs on a European mentality without a concierge desk or hotel lobby but there are complimentary whiskey tokens for each overnight guest.  Also, the toilets in each room are see-through so if there are two guests, you better be comfortable with each other. Lastly, the inn is located in Logan Square, which is apparently the Williamsburg of Chicago and sits across from the blue line subway, conveniently the direct line from the O'Hare airport.  I can't wait!
