A perfect gem

The wonderful photos of this apartment do not do it sufficient justice: it is a little gem. The owners have excellent taste in contemporary decor in this classic warehouse conversion with high ceilings, polished wood floors, fully fitted kitchen, fireplace, comfortable furnishings, artwork on walls, etc. All the facilities and appliances you could need for a comfortable short (or a long) stay in Chicago are provided, including free wireless internet. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, inviting and warm. The bed - queen size, I think - is very comfortable. Bathroom facilities are functional and very clean. I was in Chicago for a conference and the location turned out to be excellent for access to central, downtown Chicago, either by taxi (frequently running up and down S. Michigan Ave), bus (ditto), or the Chinatown Red Line station, which is less than 10 minutes walk (about 5 blocks to the west). If you have a car, there is a designated space in the underground car park. The owner, Don, was very helpful with information about local amenities and shops and left a welcoming bottle of wine on arrival. TV's and DVD players are in the main living area and bedroom but no radio or stereo system: unless I missed it. A docking station for an iPod, for example, would have completed the entertainment provision; but this is a very minor quibble. I had an excellent time and I would have absolutely no hesitation in staying here again.
