Wow........ticks all the boxes

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in Chicago made all the more special by staying Penthouse 8 at Grand Plaza. 'It is what it says on the label'

Having searched many options the owners of this one delivered excellent customer service from enquiry to end of stay. It is clear they care and go the extra mile to make your stay a memorable one. Its not often you get to ooze about something so here is my opportunity

The location is perfect. For a family with teenagers and young adults it ticked every box. It gave us quick and easy access to everything - magnificent mile, restaurants, navy pier, the lake, museums and much more. Being there during Easter our children wanted to enjoy a special family roast dinner. This was possible with the fully equipped kitchen (including blenders/full crockery/glass and cutlery/roasting & serving dishes), dining table overlooking the fabulous skyline and access to groceries. With a market store right below the building, ‘The Eately’, a modern outpost featuring a range of Italian food markets just a block away and ‘Whole foods’ a couple of blocks down we were able to get all we needed including special treats. If you want to eat out there are so many options for every taste and pocket. We were surrounded by great restaurants, which were all within walking distance. Our favourites were the famous “Pizzeria Uno’, Bub City, Beatrix and West Town Bakery which served a great donut treat. There were so many restaurants to choose from. There is a cinema just a couple of blocks away so the whole families needs can be met.

The penthouse itself....well were do I start....the view is spectacular……especially the incredible sunsets….wow!!! 24 hours of changing lights, colours and activity will be sure to awaken all your senses.

The decor and furnishings are perfect for all tastes and couldn’t get any closer to feeling ‘at home’ inviting a cosy night in by the fire. It is clean and so well stocked with all you need including plenty of those essentials that make a real difference - shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, cleaning materials…… even spices in the kitchen. Just another indication of the attention to detail the owners consider for their guests. To add even more value the staff on reception are friendly and very helpful, especially David, with great knowledge of sightseeing

If you want to be confident of a great place to stay I thoroughly recommend this Penthouse.

The only negative was that our daughter is now asking how often we can return!!

Spectacular Chicago penthouse

  • 5 of 5

We used this property to celebrate our parents 50th wedding anniversary. The accommodations were very comfortable, spacious and extremely well maintained. The property also had little extras (spices, cling wrap etc) which made cooking during our stay easier and more enjoyable. The information provided by our hosts and the interactions with them were excellent. The location is second to none for a downtown Chicago experience and is conveniently located by many restaurants, stores (shops and grocery) and was close to points of interest or close to public transportation options to go wherever we wanted. A car truly is not needed to take full advantage of the property. We travel to chicago annually and will consider this property for our next trip. We would Highly recommend this property to fily or friends.

New Year's Celebration

  • 5 of 5

What a view! Beautiful place - convenient to everything - owners are fantastic with communication and promptness. We will be back again. Grocery store right downstairs, a Whole Foods a few blocks away made

cooking dinner easy - and eating at the table with that view with the fireplace going was the best. Thank you!

Perfection!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this condo was pure perfection!!! It's a beautiful condo, well-maintained, very clean, well-stocked, and a perfect location. The owners were easy to work with and quick to respond. It was a perfect location for us to celebrate a 65th birthday & Christmas in the same weekend. We can't say enough about how much we loved our stay!!!
