Old Town guest house description

Downtown, spacious, elegant and new, this luxury short term rental home occupies the 3,250 square foot west wing of a Chicago city house custom built in 1999 to state-of-the-art building codes and modern living demands. With private guest entrance, four bedrooms each with en-suite bath and generous living spaces with paintings and sculpture from three centuries, the guest house is unique in Near North downtown Chicago.

All bedrooms have a queen-size bed with 13 inch deep top-of-the-line mattress, in-room bathroom with Kohler comfort height toilet, cable TV with VCR, walk-in closet with UL-rated wall safe and seating area.

Common areas feature a 45 foot long living room/dining room with sumptuous furniture and significant art, larger screen cable TV with VCR, a 300 title quality video collection, phonograph with extensive 33 RPM vintage record collection, Baldwin baby grand piano with player function, marble fireplace, board games and radio with CD player.


Rounding out the common areas are a fully equipped chef's kitchen with a complete line of professional cookware and service for two dozen, a rooftop deck with city skyline views, a study with executive desk, a penthouse sitting area, and laundry / workout room with Maytag Neptune washer and dryer, ironing table and iron and new commercial grade Life Fitness Total Body Elliptical Cross Trainer and Recumbent Bike.

Upon arrival, the guest house is stocked with breakfast foods, beverages and snacks. Rates include permits for parking in our 24 hour restricted parking zone. Complimentary wireless internet (WiFi) is accessible at all points in the property. Daily room refreshing may be available by arrangment.

Located on Chicago's affluent, upscale Near North side, the house is a neat one mile north of North Michigan Avenue (the Magnificent Mile) and two miles north of the central business district (the Loop). Within two blocks are the Treasure Island Supermarket, a 24-hour Walgreen’s Pharmacy, a stellar 24-hour X-Sport fitness center and the only 24-hour Starbucks in Chicago. Three other major supermarkets are 4 blocks distant. Whole Foods is one mile west as is Binny's Wines and Spirits with great variety at great prices. Epicurean and casual restaurants, live music venues, theaters, museums, art galleries and park, zoo and beach are a short walk or a quick trip by pubic transportation or taxi cab.

Please note MINIMUM STAY REQUIREMENTS for advance booking: 3-7 nights are generally required over weekend and demand dates.
