I stayed at Two Urns for a long weekend, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hostess is an artist, and she is very knowledgeable about Chicago and the local areas. She can also provide you with passes to local attractions, so be sure to talk with her about any "touristy" plans you have! I met some interesting people and had some great conversations over shared late-night snacks in the kitchen upstairs. The rooms were clean, freshly decorated, and the beds were comfortable. If I did not already live in the city, I would stay in this B&B on every visit.
Two Urns is located in the heart of Wicker Park, within walking distance of a wide variety of stores, restaurants, and clubs. Limited parking is available, including one garage slot, but they are located within three blocks from several bus stops (#9 Ashland, # 56 Milwaukee, #12 Division, #16 North Avenue), and two blocks from the L train (Blue line, Division/Milwaukee stop).
