According to a ranking on the website thecrazytourist.com, the Harvey House Bed & Breakfast is the best place in Illinois for a romantic weekend getaway, beating out places like the luxury Langham hotel in Chicago, and the massive Hilton Chicago Indian Lakes retreat. So what about the Harvey House Bed & Breakfast makes it the top romantic getaway spot in Illinois? On the site they say...

"The Harvey House may offer breakfast with its lodging, but this is far from your typical B&B. Lounge out in one of their suites, inclusive with king beds, private whirlpool tubs for two, intimate fireplaces, and upscale furnishings...For love birds at the Harvey, unwind with an in-suite couple’s massage. And if you’re really looking to impress your significant other, consider the “Champagne & Chocolate” Package for only $40."

The Harvey House is located just outside of downtown Chicago and if you want more information on the Harvey House and to see the rest of the list of romantic getaways just click here! 

What I really like about this list is that it is a good mixture of Chicago-esque luxury places, and quaint small town bed and breakfast type places. More often than not when you think luxury in Illinois you just assume high rises in downtown Chicago, but some of the best places in this state can be found in the small towns.

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.
