"What a beautiful home and place to stay! The location was perfect....in the heart of the city! The doormen were wonderful and so kind. There were some problems with the cable while we were visiting but the owners went above and beyond to make it right and were easy to get ahold of to let them know of the problem. There were 6 of us and we had plenty of room. We wouldn't have changed anything and we will definitely be back to Chicago and will stay here again and would be happy to stay in a Grand Plaza Penthouse again!"

"Our family of five absolutely loved our time in this great penthouse. We parked our car the day we arrived, and didn't use it again until we left. Michigan Avenue is only steps away, and Navy Peir, the Art Institute and Millennium park are an easy 15 minute walk.
We had plenty of room, great views, and loved the convenience of the grocery store downstairs. The Fitness Centre and pool were very well equipped. The kitchen is very well-equipped, but with all of the great restaurants so close by, we didn't use it as much as we would have if we had stayed longer. One must do is to visit Eataly, which is a great restaurant/grocery store a block away where you can get all you need for a great meal in the apartment.
The owners were great to deal with, and have everything streamlined and easy. They went out of their way to help us when we made an error with our travel documents so that our holiday proceeded smoothly.
All in all, there is no doubt that thismis a great place to stay for those who want easy access to the downtown Chicago life."

"We had a wonderful time in this gorgeous house. Lots of large spaces to spend time w/ a group, but all of the bedrooms are nestled away from the main living spaces for good privacy as well. Highlights were the grand piano, patio space, and great neighborhood where we all felt totally safe. Owner was quick to respond and pleasant.
Only element that I may have realized had a read into the details of the house but is not directly noted, is that there are not any bathrooms outside of bedrooms. Additionally, the two downstairs bedrooms w/ bathrooms, don't have doors to the bathrooms. If you intend to use all the sleeping spaces, especially the den w/ fold out, the bathroom situation could be a little awkward. The bathroom layouts however did not deter us from enjoying our stay thoroughly. And we'd definitely rent the property again."

Fabulous Apartment in the Best Neighborhood in Town!
"Great one-bedroom furnished apartment on the 22nd floor at the north end of Chicago's magnificent mile. Sparingly but extraordinarily "well thought out!" furnishings, linens--including a sofa bed for a visitor, linens, kitchen appliances, cooking equipment, silverware, , kitchen appliances, silverware, plates, etc. Apartment has SPECTACULAR views of downtown Chicago. Best neighborhood in the city for sightseeing and restaurants. Highly recommend for a couple, a single person.....approrpriate for a third person as visitor..... I've been in Chicago fora month every second year since 1977....and this was by far my best "housing" experience...."
