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

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY, IDEALLY LOCATED

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 7 that stayed over Labor Day weekend. The penthouse is fantastic. Beautiful views, a great location, thoughtful amenities and spotless! We walked to great restaurants, Navy Pier and Millennium Park. There is a Jewel/Osco in the building for groceries, cocktail hour and anything you may have forgotten to pack. The kitchen is really well-stocked. We grilled dinner one night on the 9th floor, where the pool is located. It's a great set-up with 2 trellised outdoor kitchen areas, complete with countertops and a small refrigerator. There are plenty of tables and chairs. It's a also a great place just to enjoy a drink and some apps. The pool is great and our 3 boys enjoyed it. There are several cabanas on one end, so we could keep an eye on them, but stay out of the sun. The view from the penthouse's large balcony is incredible. We were able to see some of the fireworks from Navy Pier and in the distant suburbs. The doorman Chris is a really great guy. He held our bags for us after the 10:00 am checkout. Be sure to tip him! We highly recommend this place and would definitely return!

Spacious with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

This property far exceeded our expectations: amazing views, very spacious, very clean and included every amenity we needed (including washer / dryer), walking distance from great restaurants including Pizzeria Uno.

The views include great sunsets and even a view of the lake on the south-facing side with Trump Tower in the foreground.

Parking was convenient and relatively inexpensive compared to what the hotels charge in downtown Chicago.

My family will definitely stay there again next time we're in Chicago.

Fantastic apartment in great location with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

A great apartment for a family or group of friends - comfortable, spacious and really well equipped. The location is ideal for exploring Chicago - 15 min walk to Millenium Park, the Loop and the Hancock, right next to subway station and with a supermarket on the ground floor and loads of great restaurants within 5 mins walk.

The facilities at Grand Plaza are also excellent, particularly for fitness - swimming pool, gym and small running track on 9th floor, so no excuses for not staying in shape!

But best of all, the views from the 53 floor are sensational - great view of the Loop/Willis/Trump, fantastic sunsets to the west, and you can even see the Wed/Sat summer fireworks over Navy Pier.

Thoroughly recommended

Fantastic Views, Convenient, Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Hard not to enjoy this apartment. The views are magic, the apartment is well appointed and central to all Chicago has to offer. The complex itself has great amenities, including an in-door half basketball court, which kept our sons amused on those snowy days.The hosts were always prompt in their communications and many instructions. One minor suggestion would be to soften the tone of these instructions............at times it does feel a little heavy handed. A welcome card and a bottle of wine/fruit basket would go a long way to provide this balance, as I have experienced in many other similarly priced rentals.......but like I said.....a minor point. I would stay here again.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay in Chicago. The penthouse is huge, very comfortable and well equipped, and the views are amazing. The location is really good, with the subway and a supermarket literally on the doorstep, although we enjoyed walking everywhere. Highly recommended
