Why Owner/Manager chose Chicago

In Real Estate they say 'location, location, location'. We have that. What we say is 'views, views, views'.

What makes this condo unique

Few cities have building as tall as Chicago, fewer still have rent-able Penthouse units. This is you opportunity to experience luxury living at it's finest.

As advertised and more!

  • 5 of 5
The penthouse was immaculate, and the views spectacular! The building is right in the thick of things, and the staff was more than helpful for a bunch of tourists. The owners were also very thorough, giving tons of info on Chicago leading up to our trip. They also made themselves very accessible for anything we might have needed during our trip. We were just fine, though, as this place delivered on all that was advertised, and more! The grand plaza penthouse is highly recommended for a high class Chicago experience, thank you!!!

Wow!

  • 5 of 5
My family of six (all adults) just returned from our weekend in Chicago, staying at Penthouse 1 -- in a word, "WOW! We could have stayed in the condo for the entire weekend without doing anything else. The Penthouse itself is well-appointed, roomy, comfortable, and wonderfully designed. Jim and Jeri-Lou provided everything you can think of - from dishwasher detergent to wine openers, plenty of dishes, utensils, plastic wrap, trash bags, hand soaps - just like being at home. And the the view is spectacular. From the large 55th floor balcony we had a panoramic view of Lake Michigan and Chicago sights. The views were constantly changing with the fading from day to night, as the sun set and the city lights came on. Just beautiful! An additional bonus for us wa the Chicago Air and Water Show. Jets swooped by us on their way to Lake Michigan to perform their stunts - literally a bird's eye view! We were also treated to fireworks on Saturday night, as they were set off from Navy Pier - perfect viewing from our balcony.

When I reserved this unit and read the reviews, I felt confident that we were renting a wonderful place, but the reality went way beyond our expectations. Staying at the Penthouse was a fabulous experience.

Thank you Jim and Jeri-Lou.

I was a HERO from my friends for booking!

  • 5 of 5
We has such an AMAZING stay. The unit itself was gorgeous, the staff professional and the VIEWS!! From the Airport to the station it is literally staring at you as soon as you get street side. There's a grocery store at ground level and a Starbucks across the street. It is literally a stones throw from all that you want to see and do.

Outstanding Lodging Choice for the Windy City

  • 5 of 5
My group of friends has been meeting annually in different locations throughout the US- these were the best accommodations we have stayed in to date. Absolutely perfect location, amenities, and ambiance for a group of 8 people; I am convinced there is no better place to stay to feel completely integrated into downtown Chicago! The views are spectacular and we walked to dinners, authentic Blues Bar, and shopping district within 2 blocks of the building. We took subway (EL) to Wrigley and Second City. The owners were informative and thorough with administrative side of the rental. The condo and furnishings were pristine. Loved the extra touches like extra towel hooks in bathrooms and binoculars to see the surrounding architecture and Lake Michigan - beautiful. Spectacular overall, we couldn't have been more pleased! Regards, the Men of Good Company
