Stayed four nights with our three year old daughter. Our 2BR/2BA suite was really a spacious modern apartment with full kitchen, full size washer and dryer, and even a gas grill on the balcony! Staff were all uniformly friendly and helpful. The bodega up the street was a great resource, as was the Mariano's Fresh just a mile or so...

The room was fantastic and people were great. I highly recommend this place. It is a best kept secret in Uptown Chicago. The weather was great so the food which was a couple blocks away was very convenient.

This was our first, (but definitely not our last) visit to the Guesthouse Hotel in Chicago. While this hotel is not near the loop or downtown, it is in a great northern Chicago neighborhood (Ravenswood) and is easy to reach all Chicago destinations via public transportation which is within walking distance. The hotel is immaculate and the rooms are spacious...
