WE ARE OPEN!
Ray’s unique Bed and Breakfast in the heart of Chicago’s Bucktown/Wicker Park/Logan Square neighborhood welcomes everyone, whether in town for work or play. Modeled after small European hotels and spas, the Bed and Breakfast has 11 rooms with private bathrooms. We are kid friendly, dog friendly, and heck, just friendly in general.
We are taking reservations now for bookings of two nights or more. Reservations are also be taken for next year at this year’s rates.
To ensure the safety of our guest and staff, and to comply with City of Chicago and State of Illinois guidelines, and of course, as always, listening to facts and scientists such as Dr. Fauci, we will be implementing new safety guidelines & standards:
1) PLEASE TAKE THIS PARAGRAPH SERIOUSLY AND DO NOT IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM TRY TO FIND TECHNICALITIES OR REASONS WHY IT MIGHT NOT APPLY TO YOU:
Guest with any Covid-19 symptoms, or recent contact with infected people will not be allowed to stay. If you have been tested and are awaiting results you will not be allowed to stay. If you have within the last two weeks done any risky behavior such as go to a crowded bar, parties or any event where social distancing and wearing of masks were not enforced you will not be allowed to stay. If you feel this Covid-19 thing is just a flu, a hoax or not as bad as certain people are trying to make it seem YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO STAY. I simply cannot risk the lives of my guest and my staff.
2) We will still be providing a full cooked to order breakfast on weekends but our breakfast service will be altered to maintain a safe environment for guest & staff:
A) We have 8 different tables throughout our building and each room (or group that quarantined together) can reserve their own table. We can also bring your breakfast to your room.
B) Fresh fruit & pastries will be served with your breakfast order, and coffee carafes will be provide to each table.
C) Breakfast hours will be upon request 7-10am. We will need your breakfast time the night before. As always if you need to leave earlier we are happy to provide a sack to-go breakfast with boiled eggs, yogurt, fresh fruit, pastry, a bag-o-nuts, etc.
3) Staffing will be cut back to as minimal as possible, but Ray and or one of his team will be available on phone to help. We will be doing self-check-ins (contactless check-in) as much as possible.
4) Social distancing will be required. Face masks will be required at all times unless you are with only people in your room or actually eating.
Extra safety & sanitation procedures once we reopen:
-Staff will be required to take their temperature before coming in to work (and of course, as always been our policy staying home if they are sick)
-Hand sanitizer stations are set up throughout all common areas
-We will sanitize all community door knobs and hand rails every day
Our standard thorough room cleaning has always received the “extra” sanitizing that is making the news — sanitizing TV Remotes, light switches and door handles.
