I had to travel to Oak Park for a funeral. I'd stayed here before and really wanted to do so again. I was able to book a room on short notice with no problem (call, don't try doing it through the website). Staff were courteous, the room was very nice. Having 2 restaurants in the same building was convenient. Downtown Oak Park is just outside your door, and downtown Chicago is just an El ride away.
The more I travel, the more I seek out boutique hotels, for their charm and to escape the sameness of the big chains. You sacrifice only a small bit of comfort and in return you get a more personalized experience. If I have another Oak Park trip I'll definitely stay at The Carleton again.More
