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

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

WONDERFUL PENTHOUSE!!

We stayed in here during the 4th of July holiday weekend and this spot was fabulous! It had everything we could think of needing and an awesome view as well. Jim and Jeri-Lou are great owners who take care of their penthouse and its guests. Highly recommend!

VIEW. LOCATION. CONVENIENT TO ALL CHICAGO HAS TO OFFER

  • 5 of 5
A turn of the key, and push of the door after the speed ride to the 52nd floor created a first impression that exceeded our expectations. Mom, Dad and 'tween daughter couldn't have asked for more perfect set up for all we ended up doing. We were able to stock up at Jewel Osco (ground floor), and Trader Joe's (2 blocks) to make most of our time - eating gourmet, sipping on a Cabernet (or Peet's coffee), while enjoying the view. Easily walked or did Metra to everything: Navy Pier, Millennium Park/ The Bean, swim at Ohio St. Beach, Grant Park, Shedd Aquarium, train to Waukegan for Six Flags Great America, architectural boat tour, etc.

Mom and Dad raced a triathlon, where we had the pleasure of meeting Jeri-Lou personally (she races too!). She was very attentive to one issue we had with door hardware, addressed immediately. Grand Plaza desk staff nice, helpful.

Best surprise was a thunderstorm (tornado warnings south??) experienced from the 52nd floor. Awesome! We will come again! Thank you Jim and Jeri-Lou!!

NICE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I recently stayed in Chicago. We were both very happy with the apartment. On a clear day the view is spectacular. The apt was very clean. The location couldn't have been any better, close to alot of popular downtown destinations. We would recommend this apt to other travelers.

AMAZING VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with our two school aged children in June. The condo is spacious and immaculate, the views are incredible, and the amenity level has a terrific pool and work out room. Great location near the mag mile and lots of great restaurants. The owners were very responsive. Would stay here every time we visit!
