Once you have selected and submitted your date and room preferences, we will contact you within 24 hours with a confirmation. Room requests are not considered "official" until we issue an emailed confirmation of your request. Please note our change and cancellation policy stated below.
You may also contact us via email. We will return your message promptly. We look forward to having you stay with us and will do our utmost to make your trip a memorable one!

Confirmed reservations for Pride Festival Weekend (June 16-18) and Pride Parade Weekend (June 23-25) will be taken beginning February 1, 2017. We are already fully booked for Market Days Weekend (August 11-13). These three weekends must be booked directly through the inn, not online or through any external booking engine. We regret that with only eight rooms in the inn, we cannot begin to accommodate everyone who would like to stay at the inn on those three festival weekends, and particularly on Market Days Weekend. You are welcome to email us about your interest in a room for one of those three weekends. We maintain a Wait List for all special events, including those listed above and the summer music concert dates listed below. Cancellations can occur on occasion. If you wish to be placed on the Wait List, particularly for Market Days Weekend, please send an email with your name and a telephone contact number and your desired arrival/departure dates.
Reservation and Cancellation Policies
All rooms except Room 3, British Colonial, have one bed. Reservations are taken for a maximum of two adults per room, with the exception of Room 3, British Colonial, which accommodates three people in a queen bed and a day bed). We do not accept children under the age of 18. We cannot accept personal or business checks. All rooms must be secured with a credit or debit card. A 50% deposit is taken two weeks prior to arrival (100% for single-night and two-night stays) with the balance payable at check-in. Special event weekends such as Pride and Market Days have different booking/deposit criteria, fully explained when you make your reservation request. We require a form of photo identification for all guests registered in your room. Note that we do not permit pets (other than ADA-compliant service animals) or indoor smoking including e-cigarettes. Flammables such as candles, incense, etc., are also not permitted in the guest rooms.
During "high" season (late March to late October), a three-night minimum is required across weekends, meaning either a Thursday-Friday-Saturday three-night arrangement, or a Friday-Saturday-Sunday three-night arrangement. We are sometimes able to offer single- or two-night stays on weekends, depending on guest arrival/departure dates and room availability. There are no minimum-night requirements for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday nights, unless a special event impacts those weekdays. Any changes in the length of your stay or cancellation must be made at least fourteen (14) days prior to your arrival, otherwise the full charge for the booking applies unless the room can be re-sold for the same number of nights. No refunds for early departures, regardless of the reason, at any time. No-shows without communication from the guest to The Villa Toscana will also be charged the full 100% of the original booking.
Please note: There are no exceptions to our cancellation policy, whether for reasons of sickness, family emergency, weather, cancelled concerts or athletic events, or changes of plans inside the 14-day window, and as such we recommend that you purchase travel insurance. For your convenience, we have included the website to the Travelex travel site: http://www.travelex-insurance.com/Enrollments/BrowsePlans.aspx?nc=1 The Villa Toscana Chicago has no affiliation with the Travelex service and it is being provided for you only as a convenience.
Check-in: 3:00pm-6:00pm. Please call or email us at least two days in advance to make arrangements for check-in outside of this time window. We can handle such arrivals with adequate prior notice. Note that our inn is not staffed 24/7, thus the need to know your arrival time in advance. Providing airline flight number, bus or Amtrak information with your reservation assists us in knowing of travel delays that may occur. Please keep us posted if you are delayed on the day of arrival. Check-out time: 12:00 noon.
