About Bridget Dougherty

Bridget has owned this vintage Victorian building for 20 years. We like to travel and very much seek out and enjoy staying in furnished suites ourselves. That was our inspiration. We are a family of 5 who live in the neighborhood. We take a lot of pride in our business, in the building. We are available and happy to help make your stay a delight! We love Chicago, we want to share it, and we hope you will love Chicago too!

There are times we need to put a higher priority into guests checking in and staying with us compared with e-mails. Please be patient with us...It is top priority that guests feel comfortable and glad to be staying in our units.

As a small company, there is always a give-and-take with being on site as well as being at the computer. Still, we strive for good customer service all around. Again, our goal is for our guests to be delighted with their Chicago stay.

Why Bridget Dougherty chose Chicago

This property is a nice, vintage building that adds historical value to the neighborhood and to Halsted St. The transportation is terrific and easy for commuting! Neighbors are friendly. There is so much to do and this location is very centrally located in Chicago.

What makes this condo unique

The Victorian front, especially the stained glass windows got Bridget's immediate attention. There is a very warm feel on the property and the backyard is charming. It is also walking distance to TWO el lines! The Brown Line Armitage El stop and the Red Line North Ave. El stop are walking distance. All of the shops and restaurants on Armitage and Halsted are very convenient as well.

Clean and comfortable apartment in good location

  • 4 of 5

I stayed with friends here for 5 nights during the summer of 2016 and found that it served our purposes very well. The three bedrooms, kitchen, bathrooms and living/dining rooms were all clean and comfortable. Jeff was available when we arrived and showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment. Parking was not quite the hassle I thought it would be, although it is a challenge. The only thing I didn't like about the apartment was that the sink in the master bathroom was tiny -- no room to put anything on it. Otherwise, everything was good. The beds were very comfortable. Thanks Bridget and Jeff.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Bridget, for the wonderful accommodations. Well appointed unit in a central location of the city. We were able to take the train from OHare Airport to Armitage train stop and walk to the unit easily. The unit was clean and comfortable. It was very, very warm the week we were in Chicago. That said, the AC worked well and it was nice to return to the unit and cool down after a day of sightseeing. Anyone would appreciate this rental unit.

A special thank you to Bridget who was so helpful and just a very nice person to work with. We will definitely return. Carol Ann

Perfect Chicago Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The perfect spot for an authentic local Chicago experience - especially if you are traveling with kids!

We recently stayed at Bridget's Halsted Suites while returning to the Windy City for a friend's wedding. Since we were also traveling with our nine-month-old, it made for a great excuse to make it a family vacation where our parents can join us.

The apartment has more than enough room for everyone, the comforts of home and the conveniences of a pack-and-play and high chair that we didn't have to worry about those things to take care of our son. In addition, the apartment is just in the perfect area of town where you can easily have a more local experience with the awesome Armitage corridor and Lincoln Park (zoo, petting farm and gardens) all within walking distance!

Everything was clean and tidy. We would absolutely stay here again!

Clean, comfortable and SO convenient

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for us to stay with our daughter during my sister's wedding weekend in Chicago. The apartment was clean, comfortable and had nearly all of the items we would need right in the apartment. The space is perfect for entertaining a larger group for dinner and the three separate bedrooms were perfect for us, our daughter and my mother-in-law. The bathrooms are updated and clean (though the water pressure is not awesome). It was a perfect place for a toddler, complete with clean and new pack-n-play (and sheets!), toys at the apartment and great high chair. The kitchen is almost fully equipped (the only items missing were saran wrap and tupperware) but otherwise perfect for cooking and treating like home. The location is fantastically central in Lincoln Park and there is a tot-lot (for kiddos!) steps away, which we diligently used each morning. The apartment is also steps away from restaurants and shopping. It was perfect. We will definitely stay here again when visiting family in Chicago.
