Life is always better at the top
In Real Estate they say 'location, location, location'. We have that. What we say is 'views, views, views'.
Few cities have buildings as tall as Chicago, fewer still have rent-able Penthouse units. This is you opportunity to experience luxury living at it's finest.
Thank you Jim & Jeri-LouBeautiful place, we loved it and it had everything we needed. We appreciated the hospitality. Great Place, we’d love to come back!
This wonderful condo was spacious, very clean, very comfortable and well-stocked. It was located within walking distance to restaurants, theatre district and shopping - just a couple blocks from Magnificent Michigan Avenue! All that, plus an Awwsome view from the 52nd. Floor! It's very evident that the owners pay close attention to every detail, which we appreciate so much!The staff was friendly and welcoming and eager to help in any way! We definitely would love to return to Chicago and stay in this unit!
My wife and I always take a trip to Chicago the first weekend in December to see the sites and to shop, and this year we thought it would be fun to try a new place to stay other than a hotel, and the Penthouse #5 was available during our dates. It was everything as promised, floor to ceiling windows, great kitchen, dining room, fireplace, and nice bedroom. That Sunday a snowstorm came through and it was so nice to be sitting by the fireplace and watching the snow come down on the City below. The view was excellent, looking right at the Hancock Building and north down State St. The owners were very helpful and provided good directions and recommendations for places to eat and visit. The building has an excellent gym and business area (free coffee in the mornings), and the guards at the front desk are very helpful as well. Best of all, there are plenty of good restaurants very close by, along with the shops on Michigan Ave. being only a couple of blocks away!!
Overall our visit was 5-Star, and it will be difficult to stay anywhere else in Chicago after our experience here. Try it, you'll like it!!!!
The two of us spent five nights in this unit on some very cold days in December. We had all the space, amenities, and warmth we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with all we needed to prepare one or two meals each day. The living room had a large TV and comfortable seating where chilled a bit each day between activities. It was relaxing to rest in front of the warm fire. The fireplace was perfect and warmed the entire unit. We did not run the heat at all.
This unit was very clean and well organized. The bed was a bit older and soft for our taste, but it was comfortable and the bedding was cozy. Likewise, the bathroom was very clean and just the right size for the two of us.
This penthouse unit had an amazing view of the lake and city. We enjoyed both morning and evening views. As for location, this unit is perfectly placed. We used Uber a great deal because of the weather, but rides were short to all the major attractions (Shedd Aquarium, Art Institute, Field Museum, etc.). Most of these places, the Navy Pier, and Magnificant Mile shopping are walkable from this unit when the weather permits.
Two other key features -- the grocery story is on the first floor of the building and the Red Line runs right under the building with a stop just outside the front door. In addition to Uber, we used the Red line and bus transfers to get around.
We fully recommend this unit and hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Jeri-Lou and James are wonderful hosts, even though we have never met them, and we did not have to call them one time during our stay because everything worked perfectly. (I should also add that the guys who work at the front desk of this building are especially helpful and knowledgable. They were also friendly and welcoming.) Jerk-Lou provided many details that helped us find the unit, check in, and check out with no issues at all. The 10 a.m. check out seemed early, but we left our luggage with the front desk and did a few more hours of sightseeing before heading to the airport. It worked out perfectly.
Again, if you are considering this rental, do it. You won't be sorry!
I'm not sure what I can say about the apt. that hasn't already been said....the place is amazing. The view, the location....it just cant be beat. Everything is exactly the way it looks in the pictures. The owners kept in touch so that had I needed anything (which I didn't) I know they would have been an easy phone call or email away. Its easy to give this place 5 stars. I will be back.
This home is fantastic! The view is amazing & the furnishings look as good as the pictures! It is completely stocked--just like my own home!
We would rent this beautiful home again in a heartbeat when in Chicago again!!!
