Picture the things you love most about the city — the pace, the style, the impression that life is happening all around you. This PENTHOUSE on MICHIGAN AVE are amid the excitement, accessibility and convenience of the Downtown Chicago, with its chic restaurants, cozy cafes, unique shops and hot nightspots. Beautiful Lake Michigan is only a few minutes walk through nearby Grant Park, and Soldier Field, the Museum Campus and Shopping are all just minutes away.
A great condo that worked out really well for a family of five with young kids. My train obsessed little boy loved being able to watch the trains but inside was nice and quiet. We loved sitting on the terrace taking in the city after the kids went to bed. We had all we needed inside. Jay was immensely helpful despite late notice and arrival late at night, and looked after us very well. Only slight issue was poor sound insulation between bedroom and living room inside the condo which made it tricky after kids in bed, but we just enjoyed the terrace! And this was a small thing in a fantastic stay.
I cannot say enough good things about our stay at Jay's penthouse condo. The place is great and very spacious with phenomenal views of the Chicago skyline and the Field Museum and the lake. The bed was comfortable and the place was quite clean. Most importantly, Jay was so welcoming it felt like we had our own concierge. He gave us some excellent restaurant recommendations and helped with Parking.
I highly recommend this place and will definitely be renting with him again.
Can't say enough good about this condo, or Jay. The penthouse was beautifully furnished, well-stocked and maintained, and perfect for hanging out with friends and wine. Even though the weather was frigid, we still enjoyed the enormous terrace and its beautiful skyline views. More than all that, though, Jay was great to work with. He was so friendly and accommodating, showing us around the neighborhood, helping us find parking, recommending restaurants and checking in over the course of our stay. He even picked me up at the train station on my way into the city! He really went above and beyond -- and the condo exceeded all our expectations. We will definitely be staying with Jay again!
We stayed at this wonderful rental on Michigan Avenue. It was close to everything and the views were amazing! Most of all, the owner Jay, went out of his way to make sure that everything was perfect. He met us at the unit, helped us unload our luggage, and drove us several times back and forth to the parking area. He even took us to Giordano's pizza, several miles away, and saved us the cab fare.
My husband and I travel to Chicago once or twice a year for business, and we've been making these trips for many years. We've stayed at most of the big-name hotels along Michigan Ave., as well as the trendy boutique hotels. We both agree that we'll NEVER stay in a hotel again, and we will always try to book this condo, or one of Jay's condos, for future trips!
This condo is located within a mile of McCormick Place, certainly walkable. The condo itself is very spacious and comfortable, clean, with amenities such as washer/dryer, fantastic patio and unobstructed view of downtown Chicago and the lake, well-appointed kitchen, and last but not least, comfortable beds.
Jay provides excellent customer service, in truth above and beyond what we expected, and it was truly appreciated. We opted for the airport transfers, so Jay met us at the airport, settled us into the condo, and brought us to Whole Foods for grocery stock-up. He offered ideas on several restaurants which were in the vicinity of the condo, and the two we went to were very good (especially South Coast Sushi = best sushi we've had in a long, LONG time!). Jay was absolutely like a personal concierge for us!
We've already referred Jay and his properties to clients and friends, and we will be booking future Chicago trips, for business as well as pleasure, with Jay and his condos.
Thank you for your assistance in a wonderful and comfortable trip!
This place was great...some of the best views of the city from an amazing large patio/deck. Very central location...minutes from anything in Downtown. Owner of the unit is extremely cool and his level of attention to ensure a great stay was unbelievable. I highly recommend this place.
