          How far is this hotel from De Paul University's Lincoln Park Campus? Can we walk there?

          Response from Broughton H | Property representative |
          Willows is 1.1 miles away from the De Paul Campus in Lincoln Park. You can definitely walk there, should be about a 20 minute walk and a nice area to walk thru.
