Located on Chicago’s north side at the crossroads of Andersonville, Uptown, Lincoln Square, and Ravenswood, The Guesthouse Hotel is steps away from unique specialty shops, award-winning restaurants, local craft breweries, and great neighborhood entertainment. The Guesthouse Hotel has drawn mass appeal and become a home-away-from-home to travelers who want a unique and personalized hotel experience. The 25-unit boutique hotel features 3 one-bedroom suites, 16 two-bedroom suites, and 6 three-bedroom suites. All rooms include full kitchen, living room, private outdoor balcony, gas grills and much more.

Rick Verkler (R.VER), General Manager, relocated from Washington, DC to join The Guesthouse Hotel in 2013. His time managing a luxury B&B in Washington prepared him for this next great hospitality adventure in Chicago which aligned perfectly with his passion for travel and meeting new people. Becoming the face of The Guesthouse Hotel and helping create this award-winning property are professional accomplishments he is most proud of.

Rick’s personal travel goal is to visit all 7 continents, making it to both to Australia and South America this year! When not getting his passport stamped, Rick can be found hitting a neighborhood street festival with friends and spending time with his rescue whippet, Cameron.
