We traveled from upstate NY to Chicago to visit our 8-month old grandson (his parents, too). It's a 12-hour+ drive that usually leaves us spent. The Guesthouse was a cure for that road weariness. We stayed four nights and it felt like home. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean, comfortable accommodations. A full kitchen to make breakfasts (or any other meal). Room... More

I can't say enough about the Guesthouse. I hosted an event there AND stayed with my family for three nights and everything was perfect. First, the staff was super helpful and friendly. The accommodations were wonderful. We had a two bedroom two bath and stayed with our son and just loved it. We felt right at home sharing the kitchen... More

The Guesthouse Hotel is a MUST for those wanting a departure from your average hotel. The rooms are not rooms -- they are fabulous apartments. The two bedroom I was upgraded to boasted what appeared to be 18 foot ceilings. The unit was SO well decorated and SO well appointed that I could not stop taking pics with my iPhone... More

Over the last seven years, we have stayed at this property, through its various incarnations, five times...and it gets better every time. Our party of six found it spacious, well furnished (my bed was particularly comfortable), clean, and a helpful staff. This time, with one- and three-year old granddaughters in tow, we ordered up the "bath time box" and the... More

Stayed here during Christmas with 6 family members and was very cozy - stayed very warm and has working gas fireplace. Plenty of room so you are not "on top" of others, has nice appliances and great balcony. Water pressure in the guest bath shower could be better but master bath is OK and has steam feature.

Great place. Clean,friendly, great chocolate chip cookies in lobby . Perfect neighborhood to be in with restaurants and shopping. Having a garage for the car is a real bonus in the winter. Easy to get on Lake shore drive to go the shops on Michigan avenue.
