    There are private rooms, but I didn't stay in one, so I'm not sure if it is still a shared bathroom. There are shared bathrooms for each area of suites, so it is just across the hall and not a lot of people using each one.

    It's easy using the train. Just get on the blue line and get off at Jackson station. It's only a 5 minute walk from there. (Google Maps will help you plan it).
