This is an amazing arcade-themed space, about 1700 sq. ft. with 3 roomy bedrooms, huge living room and kitchen with cathedral ceilings. Hotel Arcadia Suite offers total privacy in a peaceful second floor loft-style apartment. 2 arcade multigames on free play, huge HD TV (plus TVs in each bedroom) all with Netflix and Amazon Prime. 2nd floor deck with nice gas grill. Cook your meals in the full kitchen; do laundry in the laundry room; enjoy the gorgeous fireplace. NO big parties please.

The space
This building was entirely renovated about 15 years ago, and my new wife and I moved in and lived here for 10 years. We also have just redone the floors in the entire place - half have been restored to their original 120+ year old solid wood quality, and the other half has had new hardwood type flooring installed.

The place is on the second floor, just above my arcade restoration shop. If I'm around during your stay and you have any interest, I'd be happy to show you the shop where I bring back to life classic arcade games and pinball machines.

There are about 15-20 stairs you must ascend to enter this space. Also, there is a commercial grade entrance lock as well as an additional door lock and bolt at the top of the stairs, providing total security during your stay. Fortunately, this is entirely unnecessary, as McLean is one of the safest towns on Earth.

By the way, the extra guest charge is simply to compensate for the extra cleaning / laundry that is necessary when we have to open the additional bedrooms.

Where you’ll be

McLean, Illinois, United States

This is a very nice, safe, friendly neighborhood. You will see people out walking their dogs, or just walking up-town to get their mail. You will see kids of all ages riding their bikes and playing ball. People are very approachable and will strike up a conversation with strangers. The town has been compared to Mayberry.

Also, I would be remiss to fail to mention that this place is directly across the street from two world-class arcade museums: Arcadia and Pinball Paradise. Over 145 working, playable arcade games from the 1960s through the 2000s. Our museums have had visitors from all over the world, and they are growing every year. We have massive expansion plans and are working on two new locations right now, hopefully to open by the end of the year. All right in the downtown within a stone's throw of this Hotel!

Christian, Husband, Father of 3, Entrepreneur, Obsessed arcade collector / hoarder / enthusiast, Electrical Engineer, Programmer, Web developer. I am a very driven guy, whose current vision is to turn McLean, IL into an arcade Mecca. I am slowly renovating and transforming every building in the downtown into some arcade-related business. I love to chat with people about anything: religion, politics, current events, philosophy, life in general. Stop by, stay at Hotel Arcadia, visit my arcade museums, and let's chew the fat!

During your stay

There will be no interaction necessary between guests and myself, simply because we have a commercial digital lock for entrance to the hotel. Before your stay, we will send you your own custom door code to access the space upon arrival. The code will remain active during your entire stay and will be erased afterwards.

Of course, if you would like to interact with me, I'm a friendly guy and would be happy to show you around the growing arcade empire we are building here in McLean. Or we can just sit and talk arcade games, strolling down memory lane together. But you'll have to track me down via phone / text...I will leave you alone unless you summon me.
