We really enjoyed our 3 day stay at Andre’s condo. The apartment was clean and spacious and accurately described in the listing. We had 3 adults and a 9 yr old that the apartment suited perfectly. The Kitchen is equipped with nice modern appliances and having the washer & dryer actually in the apartment is a big plus. We used UBER & LYFT to get around town, if you haven’t heard of these new innovative/ inexpensive/simple way to get around town, check it out…………Cab Companies better step up their game because “This Ain’t your Father’s Taxi” We traveled from point to point around the city and our most expensive ride was $12….and tipping is not necessary. (Go to https://www.uber.com/invite/johnb1529 for a free ride, I’m not sure how long this code will be valid) You will need to utilize some form of transportation because the location is not suitable for walking to most points of interest. However, if you are going to the United Center for a concert, it is only about a 5 block walk, very close. The EL Train is close but the noise didn’t bother us at all. I could see that some people might be bothered by the noise but I wouldn’t let it stop you from staying here, simply bring earplugs or use a sound machine and you’ll hardly even notice the train. The neighborhood was really quiet for our entire stay. We have visited Chicago numerous times and this is the first place that sirens did not abound. I don’t think we heard a single siren while we were at the apartment, day or night. Also, the apartment building itself was very quiet, never heard a peep from other apartments. This apartment is a corner unit so it is at the end of the hall with only one apartment next to it. A HUGE plus is that this apartment has it’s own garage parking spot for no extra charge, how great is that? The spot is a little tight but it is at the very end where no one can park right next to you and bang your car with their door. The building is very secure, an electronic key fob (which you will get from the lockbox) must be scanned in order to enter. The views of the city are fantastic. It was fun watching the sun come up in the morning and the skyline would glow in the evening during sunset. At a certain point, the reflection beaming off of the skyscraper windows looked like bright ruby diamonds! We also had one day where the skyline virtually disappeared due to the low hanging clouds & fog, very cool! All in all a great place to stay, 4.8 out of 5 stars!
