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,...

We stayed for a couple of nights in March 2017. We really loved the 2 BR/2BA apartment. It was clean, updated, and had everything that one would need for a one or multiple nights stay. The location worked perfect for us, as it was within walking distance of the Aragon Ballroom, where we were going to see a concert. There...

The hotel really is amazing. Great style and beautifully decorated. We got upgraded to a 3 BR and the amount of space was unbelievable. Everything is updated and modern and it was a great place to stay. Probably one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at. And with the cost of public parking it was awesome to have...

This is a lovely hotel. The staff is warm and inviting. The accommodations are top tier, and the beds are great, especially after an evening of dancing. Loved the lobby coffee service, and the local gifts made picking something up before we left to come home very easy. Not native to Chicago - but it seemed the hotel's location made...

My wife and I recently went to Chicago to visit our nephew and his wife and beautiful, new baby girl. We absolutely loved our stay at The Guesthouse Hotel! It was wonderful to be able to walk, or take a short drive, to local neighborhood restaurants and shops. Everyone on the Guesthouse Team was very friendly and helpful. The rooms...

My sister and I and our two nieces try to get together every few years for a "sisterthon" mini-reunion and this year our Chicago niece played "hostess" and we all stayed at the Guesthouse Hotel, not far from her small condo.

Our second visit - equally as enjoyable as the first! Enjoyed the accommodations, great staff and proximity to the local neighborhood. Andersonville is just up the street and filled with shops and great spots to grab a refreshment or meal.

The Guesthouse Hotel is an immaculate, peaceful, beautifully appointed hotel. The beds are very comfortable and the suites are very spacious. There are many great restaurants within a short walk (try Bar Roma for great Italian, especially their meatballs!) and there's a spa next door. Great value and very nice people. Though it's relatively small, someone is at the front...
