Thank you Rick and staff for an amazing experience for my business team. From booking, to arrival and then departure, we were well taken care of by the team at the Guesthouse. We appreciated all of the extra steps you took to make it easy for us to conduct business but also have a relaxing stay. The accommodations were not only beautiful, but also comfortable. We loved having the amenities of home (washer, dryer, full kitchen, and fireplace) as well of the convenience of city living. This is a gem for not only the Uptown neighborhood, but for Chicago as well. Hands down, the Guesthouse is our preferred Chicago hotel!

We made a trip to Chicago for a graduation ceremony so we were on a tight schedule. The Guesthouse was home-away-from-home. We had a 3 bedroom apartment and every room was spacious and well furnished. From the complimentary laundry soap to the directory of local restaurants, the attention to detail was appreciated. We took advantage of the living room area and gathered to watch NBA playoff games and later viewed a wedding video. The surrounding neighborhood was filled with restaurants and unique shops. Public transportation was also a short walk away. Our thanks to the staff who assisted us with the reservation process and was courteous when we arrived for check in. We have already recommended the Guesthouse to family and friends. Overall, it was reassuting Our only complaint... that we didn't have more time to stay there!

Room Tip: The higher floors have a better balcony view.

Very spacious accommodations in a fantastic, walkable neighborhood. The Guesthouse Hotel in Andersonville has massive, condo-like apartments which are perfectly appointed for a comfortable, extended stay. The staff is extremely helpful with lots of good tips on how to really live like a local in the fun neighborhood. The steam sauna function in the shower is amazing!!

Room Tip: All guestquarters are very spacious. Next time I will definitely stay longer and enjoy more R&R...

We booked this after seeing it on internet. You dread arriving and it is nothing like the pictures. This most definetly is not the case at the Guesthouse. We had a 3 bedroomed apartment which was large. spacious and really well equipped. The staff are wonderfully helpful.
It is one of those occassions where you conssider not reviewing it because you want to keep it fot yourself.
Great week doing touristy things and only $20 dollars and 15-20 mins into central chicago.
Andersonville itself has wonderful restaurants and a really good atmosphere.
Drawbacks? there was some construction work but the noise was minimal and if the person in the apartment is wearing heels you can here them moving about.

Loved staying at The Guesthouse! Excellent location away from the hustle and bustle while only a 15 min drive to everything. Great shops and restaurants a short walk away. Plenty of space for our family of 5 to spread out with beautiful finishes. Used the grill out on the deck most nights. Best part was the service. We arranged for Peapod grocery delivery and didn't arrive on time to receive it. The staff received our groceries and put everything in the unit for us. After a 6 hour drive, arriving to a fully stocked refrigerator (with 3 kids) was a small miracle...thank you! Would stay here again without hesitation!

Thank you very much for your review! I am so glad we could be your home away from home for your family vacation. I think you were the first this season to fire up the grill - a sure sign spring is on the way! We were glad to help with the groceries so you could get settled in quick and begin your holiday. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and I look forward to welcoming you and your family back to The Guesthouse Hotel Chicago soon!

We've been making the Guesthouse our home away from home for the past three years. Our daughter was married last year and family and friends just about filled the place! Daughter #2 is getting married in September and we'll all be there again. It's the perfect location, indoor parking, great kitchen and lot's of light! And I can't wait for the new workout room. We love The Guesthouse Hotel!

This is our second time staying at the Guesthouse Hotel. The staff is very accomodating and the rooms are luxurious and very clean. The hotel is in the heart of the thriving Andersonville and still only a short cab ride to downtown Chicago. We were able to easily fit our family of six in the three bedroom apartment, and the kitchen is a wonderful addition to cook some meals at "home." The free indoor parking is a huge bonus too! I would highly recommend staying here!
