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

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse at Grand Plaza was a wonderful experience. There are many things that are top notch about this condo however probably the best was the location. You are close to everything and very centralized. Train stops, bus stops, cabs, and walking are all very convenient to get around the town. There are tons of restaurants, a market downstairs that carries everything, and much more right at your front door. The unit itself was top notch with a perfect view to come home to each day. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly while the owners are just as great. From beginning to end our entire stay was top notch.

College visit

  • 5 of 5

We wanted more space than a hotel had to offer. This apartment gave us space, independence and a beautiful view of the city. It was clean and stylishly decorated, quiet and convenient for walking because of its central location. We had everything we needed because the apartment was so well equipped. The wifi was great and therefore my husband was able to get on with some work.

The supermarket at the ground level of the building had fresh produce, baked goods and a nice selection of wine. We are sorry that our older two kids did not get the experience. Would we consider this in the future? Absolutely

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

You couldn't ask to rent from better people. They were very accommodating and made sure our experience was nothing but top shelf quality. It had one of the best views I have ever had in chicago. In the morning and at night it is stunning. The location is fantastic. Almost everything you want to do will be in a few blocks. Just simply an amazing place

Condo showcases one of the best skylines in the US

  • 5 of 5

Do not hesitate to book for your stay in Chicago. It's the best. Thanks to the owners Jeri-Lou and Jim for making this condo available for rental. The condo is spacious and well appointed, but it's the view that makes this place special. The city skyline is breathtaking, especially at night. The location is perfect for exploring the city. You'll make some great memories!

Breathtaking view, stunning apartment, 5 out 5!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was absolutely amazing. It surpassed our high expectations (which were based on the description, reviews and photos) and made it very hard to leave. This was our first visit to Chicago and the stunning accommodation made it unforgettable. The views were literally breathtaking, as much as we wanted to explore the city we would have been happy just sitting in front of the window for 5 days taking in the view!

The spacious and luxurious apartment was beautifully maintained and very clean and the bed was so fantastically comfortable that it was hard to get out of every morning! The kitchen was excellently equipped with everything you could need should you choose to eat in - however, the location of the apartment meant we were spoilt for choice with all the amazing restaurants and bars which were within walking distance. Worth also noting there is a fantastic supermarket below the building and the Grand subway station (on the red line) is just round the corner from the entrance and very easy to use.

Upon arrival the doorman was really friendly and very helpful, suggesting great places to eat and providing us with a map. The highlight of our stay was watching the fireworks on New Years Eve, whilst enjoying a glass of wine in front of the fire – perfection. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone considering staying here. Communication with the owners was very easy and friendly - thanks so much! We’ll be back.
