Truly a Penthouse Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed in this beautiful, comfortable and immaculate condo for 9 nights and we were sad to leave. The views are amazing day and night but I especially loved seeing the sunrise over Lake Michigan and the city skyline. We enjoyed the balcony and had fun watching the fireworks from Navy Pier. We ate breakfast in the well-appointed condo every morning and then headed out to experience everything that Chicago has to offer. The grocery store on the ground floor is a plus and the condo is in a really nice and convenient location that makes it easy to walk most places. We used the subway (on the corner) to go to a Cubs game but overall found Uber easier to use if something wasn't within walking distance. Jim and Jeri-Lou were very responsive and accommodating. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Beautiful Property in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a long weekend in Chicago celebrating with family from around the country. We stayed in three properties owned by the Friedkins in the building. All of them were very well-maintained and well-equipped. We have rented from them in the past and always find that they provide extensive information about the properties, both before the stay and throughout the properties themselves. The building is perfectly located for many of Chicago's famous attractions, and there is an El stop right at the corner of the building. There is also a nice grocery store on the ground level of the building so we were able to save money by having breakfast, snacks, etc. in the condos. We highly recommend these properties.

WOW!!! Great condo with great view!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience with this condo and the property owners was 5+stars. The condo was in perfect condition with great views of the city skyline and Lake Michigan. The location is less than 3/4 miles to the Navy Pier and 4 blocks to the Chicago Riverfront. The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to fix breakfast and lunch and the view while eating created a relaxing mealtime as well as morning coffee time. Parking was a breeze and only steps to the lobby. We took advantage of the pool and wished for more time to enjoy the fitness center and the BBQ area on the 9th floor. The residents were friendly and welcoming.The owners were very friendly and provided ample details to make our stay easy both in and out. Highly recommend this condo, or any of the others available in this building as the best place to stay for a vacation in Chicago. We plan on returning for many future visits.

Varela Family

  • 5 of 5

I most definitely recommend The Grand Plaza Penthouse as your home away from home when visiting Chicago. The condo is well stocked with everything imaginable for a comfortable stay. It is impeccably clean and spacious. The wrap around balconies offer a spectacular view of the city and the location is walking distance to many of Chicaho's great attractions. There are numerous great restaurants around the area and the Jewel Osco at the base of the building is a huge plus.

The owners are extremely responsive and make the booking process so simple.
