Hello! We are looking at staying in a 3 bedroom with my parents and our children in August. Are there stairs or steps of any kind that are challenging for older adults?

Not a welcoming environment or experience! Staff behavior was rude and condescending. Desk staff demanded Identification for everyone in our group; insisting that we couldn’t proceed because our last group member was still bringing in her luggage. Although only one room key was given. Desk staff then proceeded to tell us that we needed to just “drink our wine and relax” for the evening as this is a quite rental. I have never been received like this by any hotel or resort I have ever stayed in. Although our accommodations were acceptable the staff was not!

Dear TaylorB, Thank you for taking time to share your experience and I apologize for any misunderstandings. Hotels in Chicago have been under strict COVID-19 guidelines which includes allowing only registered guests access to guestrooms. We ask the reservation holder to provide all the names of guests occupying the room and ID verification. For everyone's safety and security, only registered guests presenting ID may receive a keycard. In addition, non-registered visitors to the hotel, in-room gatherings and parties are not allowed in order to further mitigate the spread of COVID-19. So all of our guests can enjoy a relaxing stay, we do have quiet hours in place beginning at 9:00 pm We include this information in our pre-arrival email sent to the reservation holder, website, and these polices are explained at check in as we confirm who will be staying. Polices are in place to keep our guests and staff safe and healthy during this pandemic and follow given guidelines. We certainly did not mean to offend or appear rude in anyway and I apologize if this is how you were received at check in. As travel slowly opens, we have an obligation to continue keeping our staff and guests safe and healthy during this pandemic. I'll be happy to discuss your stay further and you may contact me directly at 773-564-9568. Best regards, Rick Verkler General Manager

We often travel to Chicago/Andersonville to visit family, and over the years the Guesthouse has become our favorite hotel. In November we needed a place to stay for a full month during the COVID-19 lockdown. The Guesthouse became our oasis from the stresses of quarantining outside our family bubble. When we arrived, our apartment is spotless, as always. We love the spaciousness of the floor plan and the high ceilings. The shower in the master bath was luxurious -- five-star spa quality. The kitchen was fully equipped so that we could comfortably prepare and enjoy great meals for ourselves and also cook for our extended family. The grill on the deck was a bonus. I was able to reserve hour-long workout times in the downstairs exercise room, and I was also able to book the elegant library for Zoom meetings. The apartment is so quiet that you never know you’re in a lively urban setting. We loved having a reserved parking space in the garage, which was even equipped with an EV charger. The staff could not have been more helpful, attended our every need with great cheer. The Guesthouse tagline -- "Live like a local"-- is spot on, and we hope to return again and again.

Stayed there on a 6 day business trip. The location was perfect for relaxing in a quiet neighborhood after a busy day at the conference center downtown Chicago.

Stayed in at two bedroom unit which was perfect with a nice, clean and well equipped kitchen.

The entire unit was spotless clean.

The staff was freindly and helpful.

We did have some issue with noise from the evalatordoor when it was opening and closing, which several times, during nighttime, did wake us up, as the bedroom and main door was next to the elevator shaft.

We did adress this to the staff but unfortunately is was not solved during our stay.

Will however definitely stay there next time I go to Chicago.

I'm a local Chicagoan and live in the neighborhood so have walked by this property many times. As a former hotel guy, I have always wanted to venture in and check out this property as it looks so nice from the outside. I finally had the perfect opportunity to throw a small engagement party for a couple of friends. Rick, the General Manager, could not have been nicer and the front desk staff was superb throughout the stay. I would highly recommend this to any out-of-town guest but also to any locals who have a good reason to put someone up in a beautiful suite for a night. I cannot wait to plan my next outing here!
