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

Our girls get-away weekend was amazing on the 55th floor in Penthouse #8. It was hard to leave. Our best memories were made sitting in front of the fire staring out at the city lights. But when we did go out, great restaurants and shopping were just blocks away. I've never experienced such great customer service. If there was a problem, it was fixed immediately. James and Jeri-Lou were so responsive and information was amazingly thorough. Throughout our stay, we couldn't stop commenting on the amenities. They thought of everything! I would go back in a heartbeat.

Met some friends for the weekend and stayed in Penthouse #8

James and Jeri-Lou were awesome hosts. They sent tons of very detailed information to help us navigate into Chicago, check in, and find parking. The place has an amazing view from an awesome wrap around porch 55 floors up. You won't get sick of staring out the floor to ceiling windows. Kitchen was nicely stocked with all the essentials. We were easily able to make breakfast for 8 two of the three mornings. As an added bonus, a very nice grocery store is on the first floor of the building just a couple minute elevator ride down. Highly recommend!

We have found our home-away-from-home in Chicago!

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse condo is magnificent! We had a group of eight, four adults and four children. There was plenty of room for everyone, comfortable, clean, and well-equipped. The views were spectacular -- coffee on the balcony in the morning and drinks on the balcony each evening. The location is perfect; downtown and easy walking distance to fabulous restaurants, Magnificent Mile shopping, and attractions. We even walked to the Navy Pier. There is a train stop and a bus stop on the corner, and we never waited more than a minute for a taxi. The grocery store is in the building and very well stocked -- extremely convenient. No more hotels for us in Chicago. We'll be staying here again soon!
