Amazing place in Chicago. Great Views

  • 5 of 5

This is a well run VBRO! I was very leery about booking but the owners are top notch! The penthouse is beautiful and has everything you need. They have stocked it so you just need to bring your suitcases and enjoy! We had an amazing time on our trip and alot was related to having such a great place to stay vs a hotel. the bedrooms are spacious and have very comfortable beds. This unit will sleep 6. The owners went above and beyond to make sure every question we had before arriving was answered in a timely manner.

The views are terrific. The amenities are superior. There are so many things to do within walking distance. Restaurants everywhere. We highly recommend doing the bus tour on your first day. It was great. We saw a lot of attractions. Our tour guides were the best. We also did the Sunset Cruise on the Wendella Boat Tour (our second time on this cruise line) It is by far superior to any other boat tour available. The Chicago zoo is free and a great place to take kids. We did go to Wrigleyville and bar hopped for our daughters 21st birthday. So much fun.

The L Train Red Line is right outside the building and makes getting around town easy. If you are coming from the airport with luggage I do not recommend it. Take an Uber or Lyft. The doorman was very friendly and made us feel comfortable. The Weber Grill across the street has some amazing ribs. AVOID the Rock Bottom bar across the street. That place is dirty and gross with very poor service. Try Eataly, Pizza Duo, The Billy Goat Tavern, Gino's. Really you can't go wrong.

Great apartment, centrally located and in walking distance to to all of Chicago's best attractions.

  • 5 of 5

A terrific space with wonderful views. If only the weather had behaved during our stay. A comfortable, well appointed apartment with great beds, essential after a long days work on your feet. The double height living space was a real treat, especially as it has these wall to wall, floor to ceiling views..The supermarket store on the ground floor and the local restaurants and bars made this location a great place to be in. The arrangements/instructions to access and depart the apartment were flawless and easy, the concierge welcoming and helpful.Five of us were in Chicago on business, so our time in the apartment was fairly short, but it was a great place to come back to relax after a intense days work.I couldn't recommend it more highly.

Close to everything

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here in late May 2018.

Plusses -

- We were impressed with all the things that were pre-stocked in the apartment. Things like dish and clothes soap, all kitchen utensils, toiletries, etc.

- Proximity to everything. With the Grand Ave. red line stop right out the front door, plus all the bus lines running up and down State St. and Michigan Ave, you could quickly get wherever you wanted to go.

- Responsiveness of hosts was outstanding.

- The views are outstanding, and just like the pictures show.

- In unit washer/dryer is great for longer stays, allowing you to pack less.


Low-quality blinds - Better quality blinds are desperately needed in both bedrooms. In late May the sun starts rising over the lake at 5:20 AM and begins beating through the windows, quickly warming up the bedrooms and typically waking everybody up.

Flooring - the laminate flooring is starting to separate in places.

Sirens - I used to live in the city so I'm used to some siren activity. The fire department is one block away and the Northwestern Medical Complex is only a few blocks away. This leads to very frequent sirens, even on the 51st floor.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.
