Very comfortable stay for group of 5

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Penthouse 5301. The apartment is very spacious and has fantastic views of Chicago. Plenty of room and privacy. Communication with the hosts was very good, they are responsive to questions and provided very detailed instructions about caring for the apartment and general rules of the building. The only minor negative was that the basketball court was unavailable for 2 of the 4 days we were there. Our two teenage boys were looking forward to using that as much as possible. The fitness center is well equipped.

The apartment is conveniently located, with a subway right outside the building (Red Line), a grocery store on the ground floor, and plenty of restaurants within walking distance.

Excellent locale, amenities, beautiful views.

  • 4 of 5

My family of 6 stayed at this penthouse for a week. We had a great time. The locale cannot be beat as it is right north of the river, with a subway station right outside the main floor. There is a 24 hour grocery store on the main floor as well. The property had everything as advertised and was very comfortable.

I highly recommend this property if you need to stay in Chicago.

Why not 5 stars? For the premium price we paid for this location, my wife would have appreciated a couple of price appropriate creature comforts. Specifically, the toilet paper at one ply was reportedly a little ouchy. Second, the beds on the second level were super comfortable, but the main floor king was hard as a rock. I'd recommend a pillow topper or a new mattress.

Other than those couple of issues, we had a great time and would stay again.

Great location, beautiful unit with spectacular views - owner easy to work with.

  • 5 of 5

Great location, close to many great downtown locations and attractions - very walkable. Beautiful unit, clean, well-maintained, comfortable. Spectacular views east (lake) and south (loop). Owner easy to work with, very communicative. Easy check-in/out, door men were always welcoming. Would absolutely return next visit to Chicago.

Spacious and well furnished penthouse but near the fire station

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was in a great location on State st. There is a Jewel Osco downstairs and many places to eat and shop nearby. The kitchen is stocked with enough plates and silverware for family meals. The building also has a great club floor which my kids loved since there was a basketball court and pool access as well as a gym. They gave me a generous complimentary cleaning since I stayed for quite a long time.

A few negative things, the apartment is near the fire station and we can hear sirens all night even when the windows and doors are shut.. Also the owners do not allow packages to be delivered to the address which is what I always do since I come from overseas. So if you plan to do online shopping, they will not allow it for whatever reason.

Overall a good place for families to stay in Chicago for location, space and amenities. Since I am a light sleeper, I do not think I would stay there again due to the noise of the sirens.

Go for the view

  • 5 of 5

Truly outstanding view from all rooms. Walking distance to plenty of food, sights, etc. If you forgot to pack anything there is a grocery store literally next door. Red Line right outside the front door. Host was quick to respond although we didn't have any real problems. Plenty of towels, utensils, etc. Would highly recommend.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a family get together. We could all sit around the table and tv together. We were able to walk everywhere. Amazing location walking distance to attractions, restaurants and shopping full size grocery in the first floor. Spectacular view of the city! Kitchen was very well stocked with pots, plates and utensils. There are amazing amenities in the building (pool, bbqs available, business center, lounge). If you need darkness to sleep past sunrise bring a sleep mask. If you are like me the natural light and waking up to the view of the city are fabulous! Owners are very responsive and cordial! Can't wait to visit again!
