The Condo: A Highlight of the Chicago Week!
Take the EL from Midway to Roosevelt Station and in less than 1/2 hr., you're three blocks from the best lodging deal in Chicago. The beautifully furnished, pristine-clean, fully equipped (fluffy towels too) condo in a thriving upscale neighborhood (every convenience right there) is ideal for bus & EL transport (one of the best systems in the US). Drinks on the balcony after long sightseeing days is special. The free wireless internet access (bring your own laptop) and unlimited phone calls in the US came in handy. The owner and her property manager (Christine) provided hospitable, seamless, advance and on-site customer service. I felt welcomed like a friend, even by the 24/7 doorman! To really appreciate the City, take the exceptional Chicago Architecture Foundation tours and then collapse in your very own Chicago home! Need or want anything, just phone Christine. She printed out our boarding passes and delivered them to us at 7 a.m. the day of departure. And, as a "foodie," she will guide you to the best restaurants (which aren't necessarily the most touted ones). I've been telling everyone that this is the perfect Chicago base - if you're lucky enough to find it available. The photos on the website don't really do the handsome, spacious, bright, airy ambiance justice. I felt privileged to enjoy the property and will certainly return.
