January 30, 2013: We know that a bed & breakfast is the Better Way To Stay. Hotels and resorts have been trying to fool the public for years by advertising “The Bed & Breakfast Experience” and “A Bed & Breakfast Weekend”. The discerning public knows better.
No hotel is going to be able to provide the personal touches of a bed & breakfast and having to stand in line trying to make your own waffle (hoping the griddle is hot enough and the waffle will actually cook and not stick) is not what a real B & B calls breakfast. Here at the Gillum House Bed & Breakfast we pride ourselves on serving our guests a scrumptious breakfast taking into account their dietary requirements and serving the freshest coffee from the country our guests choose that has been fresh-roasted just for them.
We have large, clean bathrooms with fluffy towels and bath sheets and comfortable beds with nice linens. There are luxury bathrobes in the closets for our guests to use. And all rooms have cable TV, free WiFi, DVD players, and individual climate control in each room.
It has come to our attention that another entity has become aware of how special and desirable it is to stay in a Bed & Breakfast and is joining hotels as copycats of the real deal. The City of Chicago is now advertising their bed & breakfasts on T-shirts.
