Best Western Plus Hawthorne Terrace

100% love it
A Boystown secret
It might look unassuming, but this Best Western is an affordable and comfortable choice for staying in the heart of Boystown.

      Great Solution
      Stayed here with my BF for three days following a conference in Chicago... this place is "gay-friendly", meaning the clientele is mixed, but there was certainly a high proportion of same gender couples checking in and out.... Staff is attentive, place is well maintained, and the location is fantastic, with every sort of restaurant, coffee shop and diner within easy walking distance. The exercise room is better than many at in hotels of a far higher pricepoint, and the hot tub is downright awesome.... relaxed there several times as part of our "routine" while staying here....Although we had a car, it really is not necessary to get around in Boystown. In sum, this place is a great value for money spent...

      Can't beat the location, quality, cleanliness, and service!
      Take the Orange line north from either airport to Addison/Wrigley Field and you're about ten city blocks (four Chicago Blocks) from the Best Western Hawthorne Terrace. Fully renovated and expanded in 2009/2010, the decor is understated with a traditional lobby and complimentary breakfast. Be sure to save time to try the whirlpool and sauna--also renovated, they are kept impeccably clean and are both very soothing. Three blocks/One Chicago block from the Halstead street bars, about 500 feet from The Closet (lesbian/gay bar) and adjacent to a very affordable sushi and chinese restaurant. The desk staff know the area and are very helpful--with only 51 rooms and suites, they have the time to pay attention to their guests. Parking in the adjacent contract ramp is available as well. All rooms have microfridges, free WiFi, plush beds, opening windows, large closets, in-room safes, and complimentary bottled water. In my opinion, no better hotel at this value in Boystown/Wrigleyville.
