Overview

Chicago Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom Soft Loft, Live Like A Local With Easy Access To Loop!

If you're vacationing or in town for business and you want a taste of a 'real Chicago neighborhood' while still being close to tourist attractions and the financial district, this is your place. The condo building itself is one of the highest sought after in the West Loop. It is centrally located on Madison and Morgan streets and walking distance (3 blocks) from the Loop. There also is a bus stop outside the front door for the cold winter months, an el (i.e. metro) stop two blocks away, along with plentiful cabs. It's surrounded by the city's best restaurants (the highly acclaimed Randolph restaurant corridor 1 block away) and an incredible bar scene that stretches west on Madison all the way to the United Center (where the Bulls and Blackhawks play).

The condominium is a one-bedroom soft loft and includes underground, in-building, heated parking.

The condominium was professionally furnished and decorated in 2013 with an industrial/urban theme. In addition to a beautiful queen bed, the condo also includes a sleeper sofa (to sleep 4 comfortably), central air and heat, hardwood floors, in-unit washer and dryer, oversized tub and shower, gas range and stove, dishwasher, fully equipped kitchen, over-sized refrigerator, WiFi, Nintendo Wii Console (BYO controllers and games), DirecTV HDTV cable, outdoor balcony and a gas grill.

About J Schwan

A Chicago native, I lived in the city for 15 years. I'm now living in the suburbs with my incredible wife and 3 kids. This was my first condo, purchased in 2001. It's 5 blocks from my office and in my favorite neighborhood, the exciting West Loop. This condo remains one of the favorite places I've ever lived. I'm positive you'll love it!

J Schwan purchased this condo in 2001

Why J Schwan chose Chicago

For the past 7 years we've rented this place as a yearly unfurnished rental. Whenever it would come on the market it would rent in less than a week. We're now at a point in our lives where we want to start using it again ourselves; so we had it professionally decorated and furnished and are putting it on VRBO for others to enjoy as well!

What makes this condo unique

Professionally decorated with an urban/industrial theme. Perfect location for corporate and vacation travelers. Dry cleaning in building; Starbucks across the street; Dominick's grocery 2 blocks away; 3 health clubs in walking distance with day passes available; CTA #20 bus stop outside front door (real time bus tracker at www.ctabustracker.com) which will take you into the Loop, Millenium park, Michigan Ave Shopping and the Lake Front;

Randolph street restaurants (including the internationally acclaimed, Girl and the Goat); Madison street bar scene with the craft-beer mecca The Beer Bistro, one block away; Unbelievable gourmet ice cream shop one block away too!

My kind of town

  • 5 of 5
Since we were born and raised in Chicago & had moved away several years ago, we knew our way around. We were very pleased to have indoor parking included - drove from Fl. The location was ideal for what we wanted to do. Felt safe walking in the neighborhood. Restaurants and grocery store nearby. Also the location was close to the expressways which was also ideal.

Exactly what we needed.

  • 5 of 5
This condo was exactly what we needed for our extended stay. Having parking was a great bonus, and everything we needed was provided. The neighborhood is great and there are several buses that can get you where you need to go if you'd prefer to leave the car. Also, great food is within easy walking distance. Overall, a great rental option close to everything without being in tourist central.

Very Responsible Owner

  • 5 of 5
This review is somewhat unusual in that, although my wife and I didn't stay at Mr. Schwan's property, we had an experience that is a testament of how the owner treats guests. Anticipating an upcoming trip to Chicago we found both the property description and guest reviews sufficient to place a deposit on the apartment for September. However, a friend we are visiting while in Chicago recently found that we could be accommodated with her. So, needing to cancel our reservation with Mr. Schwan, he understood our situation and promptly refunded the deposit. I think the fine reviews by other visitors reflect well on the property but, in my book, integrity and thoroughness also deserve a glowing endorsement. If we have need to come to Chicago again or know of someone visiting that needs a place to stay, we will know where to send them! Thank you!

Wonderful location and property

  • 5 of 5
Our condo unit in the West Loop was super for my husband and I. The unit has everything you need, it is very clean, and the building itself is also well-maintained. One bonus, especially in the winter, is the parking spot. The laundry facilities in the unit are another plus, especially for a week-long stay.

There are a number of wonderful restaurants and bars in the area - especially the Greek restaurant on Halstead. Also, Mariano's for groceries and Walgreens are only 2 blocks away.

You can get the city bus just outside on Madison to get downtown or even walk in good weather which makes the location ideal.

The owner and his assistant were very helpful when we requested 2 additional days and provided detailed information about the unit, parking and also information on the area

We will definitely return - it is our first rental through VRBO and we were very pleased.

Great rental; great location; great city

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in this unit for nearly 6 weeks as we looked for a home in Chicago. The unit is as advertised. It has ample room for two people (would be a little crowded with 2 more on the sleep sofa, but OK for a weekend), is very clean, and has a great kitchen, well-stocked with all essentials (bring your own food). Indoor parking is a real plus. The owner was always responsive if we had any questions.
It's centrally located between the United Center and downtown, and just a few blocks from Greektown. The 20 bus and many cabs are easy to find on Madison St., and the El is just a few blocks up Morgan St., so getting downtown or to the Mag Mile quickly and without using your car is easy. It's near to grocery stores (Mariano's is a fabulous store), and many, many restaurants. The owner provides some excellent restaurant recommendations, and there are lots of other good ones. It's a happening neighborhood, but still quiet at night.
We'd recommend this place to anyone.

The West Loop lies along the western bank of the Chicago River, located on the west edge of the downtown financial district. A former manufacturing and warehousing area, the buildings have been converted to loft condominiums, bars, restaurants, night clubs and art galleries. It is now the most popular neighborhood for young families and singles in their late 20s and 30s. It is also the home of Harpo Studios, owned by well known talk show host Oprah Winfrey, and the production site of her syndicated television show.
