GETTING AROUND

  • Public transportation is easily accessible from The Guesthouse Hotel. The Clark #22 bus picks up on our block all hours every day, and it drops off at many popular stops, including Wrigley Field, Lincoln Park Zoo, State Street, Michigan Avenue and the “Magnificent Mile,” Millennium Park and all other sites, shops, restaurants, and attractions in the downtown area.
  • Chicago’s train system is known as the ‘L.’ The closest stop is the “Lawrence” Red Line station about 5 blocks away (10-15 minute walk) at the intersection of Lawrence and Broadway.
  • The CTA has a great trip planner website: transitchicago.com.  You can also purchase 1-day, 3-day, or 7-day passes for unlimited bus and ‘L’ rides.
  • The Metra Ravenswood stop is about 15 minutes away at the intersection of Lawrence and Ravenswood. Metra will whisk you downtown or up to Ravinia for the famous summer music festival. For more information and schedules, visit:www.metrarail.com
