Our stay at The Penthouse
Submitted: November 15, 2010
Stayed: November 2010
My wife and I stayed at the Penthouse from Nov.7th till the 13th. We celebrated our 37th Anniversary there, as well as my birthday. Jim & Jeri-Lou were "very accomodating," especially with my last minute effort to find a nice place to stay at. Let me begin by stating this was more than a very nice place, "it was beautiful", everything about it, the kitchen, the living/dining room areas, the bedrooms, more than enough room, including closet space. It was very clean and well decorated. Plenty of everything, from towels to cooking utensils (and my wife is a cook). The Fitness Room and sauna were very nice.
Jim & Jeri-Lou answered all our questions promptly and provided us with a wealth of information, i.e; directions to & from airports, local diners, bars, main attractons, etc. Grocery stores such as Jewels, (downstaris), Trader Joe's & Whole Foods, just one - two blocks away. Michigan Ave. (The Magnificant Mile) is just a few short blocks away for you shoppers.
Even though we are both originally from Chicago, we have never seen Chicago like this. The morning as well as the evening views from the balcony are spectacular! You could spend the whole day just hanging out inside the Penthouse and enjoying the view over dinner and a nice glass of wine. Each room has it's own special view. There all so many attractions nearby that you can pick and choose from, to include all the local museums. You can also spend an enitre day just walking around and photographing the many beautiful buildings and sights in the area so make sure to bring your camera. Everything is so close from this location that you can go out, come back and rest and head back out for some more fun.
This was truly a very nice romantic get away for the both us. We highly recommed a stay at the Grand PLaza Penthouse, it's well worth it, it's better than a hotel.
