Amazing property in a fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse is truly amazing. It is just like the pictures and the owners were super helpful. The building is in a perfect location and we will definitely stay here again. We couldn't have asked for a better experience to celebrate our friend's birthday.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated Christmas with our two adult children and their spouses in Penthouse 8. We enjoyed having room for everyone and a beautiful place to gather for meals and games around the fireplace. The apartment is wonderful with easy walking to the Magnificent Mile and Maggie Daley Park. The kitchen is well equipped, the furniture is comfortable, and the apartment is clean. James and Jeri-lou are excellent hosts, promptly answering questions and sharing helpful information. We highly recommend this choice for family gatherings. The view is amazing. We especially enjoyed sunset.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The city of Chicago is always a pleasure, but the city of the Chicago from the Penthouse is indescribable. We had one local guest visit one evening, and his exact words were "I've lived here for a number of years, but this is the best view I've ever seen of the city." To sum it up, the location is convenient, cozy and breathtaking. We will be back!

Great location, as Penthouses go, it was awesome ;-))

  • 5 of 5

Well we had a great time. Awesome place in a great location. So your choice is hotel or Penthouse. And if you are lucky enough to have the numbers the Penthouse is ten times better. Three bedrooms and a pull out couch. Sleeps 8. The balcony is a wrap around and was the stage to many a great photo over the days. We like to cook and made breakfast everyday. The kitchen had everything you would need and the grocery store downstairs was perfect. Beer, brats, and bacon what more do you need (they had vegetables too). It was a fully stocked supermarket. Jeri-Lou and James were very helpful. Chicago is such a great city we didn't spend much time in the building but the 9th floor has to be observed if not experienced. A running track, gym, and pool room to touch on the highlights. The place is very spacious and the perfect place to spend a few days.

Amazing Chicago Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

Our visit was nothing short of amazing. I traveled with my best friend and three teenage girls for the Chicago Style Gymnastics meet at the Navy Pier. The Penthouse was gorgeous and stocked with everything we needed from extra towels to Q-Tips. We had no issues at all. We went with Jeri-Lou's recommendation and hired Andrew to drive us all around the city. He was punctual and very informative. He made great recommendations: Wildberry for breakfast, The Cut Steakhouse for dinner, amazing!!!!!!!! The girls loved the spacious penthouse. The Mom's enjoyed the space too. The market on the bottom floor is perfect, one stop shop. The doormen made us feel right at home. The VIEWS!!!!!!! I love Chicago. In three days we went to Willis tower, the Aquarium, the Bean, and of course the Navy Pier where one of our teenagers competed in the largest international Junior Olympics gymnastics competition in the country. The Navy pier was amazing, right on Beautiful Lake Michigan. Allie placed third on Bars in her division and Andrew had a box of Fannie Mae chocolates waiting for her when he picked us up!! We will be returning for sure. No doubt an amazing Home away!!! Many thanks to Jeri-Lou and Jim XO
