A really good apartment with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apt for 5 nights on our 1st ever visit to Chicago, and we could not have chosen better! The apt is spacious, clean, functional, very well situated and, above all, has amazing views. The process with the Friedkins was very professional and smooth. Of all the places we’ve rented over the years on three continents, this was one of the very best city apartments. We can highly recommend this to anyone.

a great apartment, living the high life in Chicago

  • 4 of 5

This is a spacious, very well appointed apartment with great views. Why would anyone stay in a hotel room when you can have all of this space and such a high level of amenities?

The kitchen is extremely well stocked, with everything you could need including some things that aren’t normally found such as spices and helpful things like cling wrap. This is ideal if you are interested in some self catering, especially given the supermarket on the ground floor of the building.

The apartment was very clean, and the bed very comfortable. Amenities such as the washing machine and dryer (including washing liquid) are very handy for travellers who are away from home on an extended break.

The photos are an accurate representation of the property. The location is ideal, close to everything, Even though there’s public transport on the corner you can walk to many places.

International guests should note that this is not what we would refer to as a penthouse – in that it is not on the top floor. I have come across this description of a penthouse in the US which seems to refer to just high floors. We thought we would be on the very top floor to avoid any potential noise from upstairs neighbours, so we were initially a bit concerned. We did not have any noise issues, though.

There are a few other quibbles. The towels could be newer / better quality. The plastic flowers are not to everyone’s taste (well, not to mine!).

The main drawback is the extent to which ‘house rules’ are communicated. On the plus side, they are made clear from the start, which is appreciated. There are, however, many plaques throughout the apartment reminding you of specific rules and warning of a loss of deposit each time. This significantly reduces the feeling of being welcomed. As did the detailed email on the day before we left reminding us of the condition in which we should leave the apartment. Perhaps the owner had a bad experience at some point, as all other communication was quite friendly. On the plus side our deposit was returned to us very quickly.
