My family has visited Chicago regularly for the past five years, staying in several centrally located hotels, all very fine and with great amenities. But,The Guesthouse is definitely at the top of my list. We stayed four nights in a 2BR/2 bath unit which was super spacious and gracious. And the hotel is conveniently located, with nearby shops and restaurants...

This isn't a hotel, it's a home. We were all charmed by our 3 bedroom unit. I loved the kitchen, with the Jenn-aire appliances, and amazingly well appointed kitchen. Garlic press? Yes, please! The beds were super comfy, and there is storage to spare both in closet space and in furniture! When sorting out your Instacart order, there are coffee...

We stayed in one of the two bedroom units for four days.

The room was immaculate and nicer than the photos. I had a few issues figuring out the DVD player and washing machine, but a...

I was pleasantly surprised by the amenities and the style in this full service hotel. They had everything that anyone could hope for including a garage with an opener! I booked it because of the price and location not realizing what a gem of a property that we would be staying at. The staff was friendly and very helpful. It...

Shelter - a word sometimes used carelessly, without thought or consideration of its basic and true meaning. Where would we be without it? Do yourself a favor: stay at The Guesthouse on your next trip to Chicago. You'll be delighted at the small but unique gift shop in the lobby. You'll be treated like a cherished guest by the staff,...
