Places to Stay Near Subway in Chicago

I'm planning on traveling to Chicago from NYC for the first time in April, and I'm trying to find a place to stay (right now, via Airbnb). I've checked the recent Chicago travel questions, but they all seem rather car-centric, and I'm planning on commuting largely by subway/walking (and buses, if necessary). I'm trying to figure out how to stay somewhere safe, near a subway line.

Are there subway lines that are better than others? What neighborhoods would be best to stay in (alternatively, are there neighborhoods I should avoid staying in at all costs)? I don't drink, so I really couldn't care less about the bar scene anywhere, and will be spending most of my time going to museums and architecture/walking tours, sightseeing, and such. I don't mind a ~30 minute commute to downtown. I'd also like a relatively easy commute back to the airport, which I know can be reached by the Blue Line.
Also, If I should just give up on the Airbnb thing and get a hotel room instead, guidance on that would be appreciated as well.
Thanks for any suggestions!
