McCormick Place apartment description

We have a deck with an incredible skyline view of Chicago. That is the second picture below. The first picture is is our huge living/entertainment room. We have a 60 inch widescreen HDTV with a surround sound and Bose speakers with a subwoofer for enjoying sports and movies. Our deck with the Chicago City Skyline view (closed in winter when there is snow and ice) is something that you won't forget. The next photo in the ad is our 5 star hot tub. It's your new best friend after a day of travel, sightseeing, or business. These are all great places to relax.

We are offering specials for August 19th through the 22nd and September 2nd through September 7th. Our special rates range from $170 per night to $195 per night. The rate depends on what dates and for how many nights.

This site's quotable rates often do not match how we price our rentals and are sometimes not very accurate especially when we offer specials with discounts for additional nights. We try to set our rates as best as we can and show an average rate.. Please email or call us for an accurate rate quote. Rates for summer are usually the most accurate and last minute special rates are the least accurate as additional nights above our minimum are priced lower and this site is not able to calculate these rates correctly.

This apartment has 2 bedrooms and 3 queen beds. The 3rd queen bed is a Jennifer Brand sleeper sofa that is in our huge living/entertainment room. Our living room is at the far end of the apartment and is private

We are offering specials for our remaining dates in April through Mid-May. 3 nights are $575, 4 nights are $675, 5 nights $750, 6 nights $825, and 7 nights $875.

These specials are also available for our 3 bedroom apartment which is listing number 225815. Here is the link to our ad for that apartment.

We are close to McCormick Place and all of the sights of Chicago. The I-94 expressway is 1/4 mile away. We have a bus 1/2 block from our door. The train is a 1/2 mile walk. It is an easy 10-20 minute drive or short train ride to our downtown city center and all of our city's attractions. We are located in a safe and quiet area.

Amenities, Parking Details, and Google Map :

Our guests love our amazing city skyline view from our deck, our 6 person Hot Tub and our huge 3.5 x 5 showers with Grohe body sprays and steam bath generators. We have fully stocked modern kitchens.

We include one garage parking space with your rental. Street parking in our area is very easy with the possible exception of when the White Sox are playing as we are close to the ball park. Even then, parking is easier than most areas of our city.

Describing Our Neighborhood: This rental is located just South of Downtown Chicago in the quiet and safe neighborhood of Bridgeport. It is a 10-15 minute drive or cab ride or a quick train ride to all of our great attractions on our great public transportation system.

Our daily newspaper, the Chicago Sun Times recently reported that our neighborhood was voted the best place to trick or treat based on the safety and the family atmosphere of our area. This is what they had to say.

The best neighborhood for trick-or-treating in Chicago? Bridgeport, says a real estate web site that says it factored in where a kid's likely to get 'the most candy, with the least walking and minimal safety risks.'

Bridgeport gets props from Zillow dot com as 'really a family neighborhood.

Our proximity to downtown, McCormick Place , and I.I.T, has made ours a very hot residential destination for the last 10 years. One of our neighbors 5 or 6 houses away recently built a $2.5 million house and next door is a huge house with an indoor .

AN IMPORTANT NEW DEVELOPMENT CONCERNING VACATION RENTALS IN CHICAGO.

We are a legal vacation rental and our license number is 2074660.

Occasionally we will make slight exceptions on the age limit for responsible adults who are not coming here to party.

The apartment is also stocked with a supply of many of the basic necessities that you will need during your stay such as paper products, laundry soap, etc.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2000

                          About the owner: We are two life long friends who bought this building to live in, renovated it with our comfort in mind, and later converted it to a vacation rental.

                          Why the Owner Chose McCormick Place:
                          Our area is safe and very close to everything in Chicago. Our local restaurants and shops are moderately priced compared to the trendier areas. This is a family neighborhood.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          You will love our deck with the amazing view of the Chicago city skyline, our hot tub, and our huge showers with multiple Grohe Body Sprays. You will also love how easy it is to park and to get around the city. We are ½ mile from the I-94 Dan Ryan Expressway. It is a 3 mile/5 minute drive to Lake Shore Drive and a few miles from there to the Museums, Navy Pier, Millennium Park, Michigan Avenue shopping and every major attraction in this city. When we lived in this building ourselves, we would always be able to get to the lakefront from our garage in 10 to 15 minutes as long as there wasn’t rush hour traffic or a game or concert at Soldier Field. Even then, we would take Michigan Avenue, State Street, or one of the other side roads and still make great travel time to our city center. Ours is a quiet, safe, and friendly family neighborhood. It’s not real trendy, but you can save a fortune on casual dining or drink prices if you want to eat locally some of the time during you visit. You can park easily too. If you want to visit our 5 star restaurants or nightclubs, they are a quick 10-20 minute drive or cab ride away.
