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.

We loved this Condo in Chicago!

  • 5 of 5

My husband has spent an hour after we came home trying to figure out how we can go back and visit and rent this Condo again. The views and facilities are perfect. The location is ideal for any activity you want to go to or sight seeing. We loved the Grocery Store next door. We did not have time to use the Work out area or Saunas or Pool . We were busy seeing the Show at the Goodman Theater, seeing the Cubs play, the Frank Lloyd Wright home and his Walking Tour, the Architectural Boat Tour and Neighborhood Bus Tour.

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.
