You cannot beat the location!

  • 5 of 5

So, to keep it simple, here goes:

1. The Property. Gorgeous view, neat and tidy, has everything to accommodate e.g., dishes, towels, detergent. You name it, it’s there for you to use.

2. The Location. Got Cubs tickets? Good, just walk to your right to catch the red line toward Howard, then get off at Addison. Can’t beat the convenience, the CTA is quite reliable. Oh, and wait - are you hungry? Good, because there is loads to choose from, all within a very short walk from the condo. My fav is Cantina Loredo - the drinks are fantastic!

3. The Owners. Prompt, thorough, available, kind, etc. You get my point - they are awesome! And Jeri-Lou - seems she is always busy multi-tasking (haha!) but will always make time for you, whatever the need, should you need anything, which I can’t imagine that you won’t.

Now - will I return? Certainly, but only if the Grand Penthouse is available. It’s on the upper floors (as if one can go any higher) and, from the photos, I really should be there - really!

Amazing views - extremely comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. The apartment is spacious with incredible views of the city and lake. Bed was comfortable and so was the leather furniture in the living room. Only issue we had, and this was not a problem, just more of an annoyance. The owners communication is over the top with lots of rules and repeated emails and texts reminding you of them.

great unit at magmile penthouse

  • 4 of 5

it is a great unit and the views are wonderful. the pictures of the unit are accurate so you can see how great it is. only would have preferred a queen or king bed instead of the standard double. and the staff at the building is most cordial and helpful. wish we would have had more time to use the gym and pool.

Great for business and vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay! The apartment was very clean, had all the amenities, very relaxing! The location of the building is ideal as it is close to Miracle Mile, a block from Eataly, and a quick access to everything else Chicago has to offer. Has a huge outside balcony to enjoy the incredibles of downtown and the lake. The owners were accommodating and check-in/check-out was easy and painless. Will definitely stay again on future trips to Chicago.

Great Location Pure Comfort

  • 5 of 5

Excellent, centrally located penthouse apartment with breathtaking city views. Clean, well maintained with complete working kitchen for breakfast fixings or full meal at dining room table. Supermarket literally in the building and Red Line subway outside the front door connects to all parts of the city. Great response from managers Jeri-Lou and Jim and clear instructions for all appliances and checkin/out procedures. Great location for all the sights, Field Museum, Art Institute, Lincoln Park, Sox and Cubs baseball...and don't miss the Chicago River Cruise (do the architecture one).

Beautiful views & great location!

  • 4 of 5

Views were beautiful! The condo was clean, roomy and smoke/pet free. The location was excellent! Located next to Jewel/Osco, which was very convenient for groceries. Centrally located within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, tourist attractions. Red line is at the corner, free Navy Pier shuttle is a half a block down. We easily found the condo, parked our car in the garage and walked the rest of the time.

It would have been nice to have patio furniture on the spacious balcony to further enjoy the views.
