Beautiful condo - could have moved in permanently!
We didn't choose this condo at first, because it was so far south on Michigan Ave (1255 S Michigan) right at Museum Campus, but we are so glad that we did choose to stay here! The view from those walls of windows is amazing! Not only is the condo a perfect size for our family of 6, but it is conveniently equipped with all the kitchen utensils and supplies we needed. It was clean, neat, exactly as pictured, and the front desk personnel are very, very friendly and helpful. The building, Sky 55, is just over the bridge, a beautiful walk, from the planetarium, aquarium, and Field Museum and a nice walk to the Art Museum and The Cloud at Millennium Park. Even our youngest could do it. The bus stop to get to Miracle Mile is right outside the front door. The train terminal is one block away. Grant Park right outside our window kept us from feeling claustrophobic after hours of being packed like sardines inside the aquarium. (I highly recommend the City Pass for those interested in seeing Chicago's major sights. The wait for admission to the aquarium was 2 hours, for the Skydeck at Willis Tower is was 1 1/2 hours, but with the City Pass we were able to walk right in. With 4 kids that was invaluable!) Also, the rental procedure through J Condos is the easiest in the world! Once we made our decision we were booked within a few minutes. After staying there once and seeing first hand the location, the condo itself, the workout room, and pool (which wasn't open yet the first week of April), we will never stay anywhere else. Thank you, Jay, for all of your help in making this stay for us so simple.
