Our one week stay at the Flats proved to be the best choice for our family of four. Our purpose was to not only move our daughter into college, but to also enjoy a family vacation in Chicago. We managed to accomplish both our missions with tremendous ease - in large part because of the excellent accommodations we enjoyed at the Loyola Flats . The apartment was spotless, beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. In addition to the many amenities throughout every room in the apartment, we had access to a lovely terrace just outside the living room, also furnished with chairs and coffee table - perfect for enjoying the outdoors on a summer's day. The terrace is nicely landscaped with plants and shrubs and decorative wrought iron fencing. Inside the flat, the kitchen was equipped with new appliances and everything needed to prepare meals, including stemware, cutlery, cooking utensils, pots/pans, dishwasher, etc. Our flat also had its own laundry room with washer/dryer and even the detergent was included! The bedroom closets were state-of-the art organized spaces complete with dressers and plenty of space for our belongings. The living room area featured a large flat screen TV, and the sofa bed very comfortably slept two . Convenient off street parking was available. Major bus lines and Chicago train station were just a few feet away around the corner and accessing the Downtown area couldn't have been easier on public transit (about 1/2 hour on a scenic bus ride along the Lake Michigan's shoreline). The staff were extremely accommodating and able to provide information/directions around the city. The building is a secure building with code and key access. It's on an attractive tree-lined street, and close to retail stores, bank, eateries, lakeshore beaches, Loyola Chicago University and Northwestern University.
Highly recommend the Flats to anyone wanting all the comforts of home while visiting Chicago. Not only were all the essentials provided, but the attention to detail and quality of the amenities were well above the standard - a true luxury guesthouse.
