Caryl's home is extremely comfortable and in a great location for visiting Hyde Park and U of C. We stayed there with a 7-year old on the day bed in our room and had plenty of space. And being 50 ft from the Starbucks was an added bonus. Logistics for everything were very simpl…

We had unfortunate experiences with the way we were received, and as a result we found our stay pretty stressful. It's true that I'm a person who's very sensitive to subtle kindnesses and unkindnesses, so others might have been able to brush it all off a little more easily. My ef…

Response from Caryl:
Hello Mariah. I am extremely sorry that you and your wife did not feel as warmly welcomed as I would have liked you to feel. I explained that I was fearful for your one year old baby's safety while in my home when you told me upon arrival that he likes to play on the stairs. I was nervous about a baby playing unattended on the stairs and I asked you to please make sure he was not left alone. I offered you two free nights as an apology for the fact that my concerns for his safety made you feel unwelcome, and you asked me in addition to deduct the price of one night of your stay to let it go, with the implication that the quality of my review from you would depend on my acceptance of your request, which I declined. I am really sorry this was not the great experience you had hoped for and have taken your review to heart and changed my listing to reflect that it may not be a good fit for infants. Best Caryl.

AMAZING! Have stayed locally at the hotel (which is just fine) however, will absolutely be returning to Caryl's the next time I'm in Hyde Park instead. Personal touches. Comfortable. Clean. Spacious. Well exceeded expectations. Caryl was responsive, kind, and accommodating.
