I normally stay in hotels, but for this trip I couldn't find one that worked well in this neighborhood, so I "took a chance" on Chicago Guest House. Winner! This place is on a wonderful residential block in the Wrigley Field area. The unit itself (3rd floor) is a beautifully maintained, charming, three bedroom apartment. The rooms are separated by a good distance, so everyone has some privacy. The living room is bright and features a large TV (for that inevitable down time). The kitchen has been remodeled, is fully functional and well equipped. The focal point of the unit is a beautiful dining room that would be a fantastic for a celebratory family or friends dinner.
I had one small issue while I was there - I couldn't find a local TV station (Roku). I called the owner, Teri, and she came over in short order and helped me fix it. We had a lovely conversation about the house and the neighborhood.
Wonderful aspects of the neighborhood include Guthrie's Tavern, a real neighborhood pub, and Bodega Sur, a wine bar, and the related Tango Sur, a cozy Argentinian restaurant with an excellent menu. (Advisement: Tango doesn't sell alcohol, so buy a discounted bottle of wine at Bodega before you go.)
