Amazing dowtown Chicago experience

  • 5 of 5

Safe and secure building located in River North. No car needed. One of the best Chicago views day or night from high in the sky. Unit is super clean and sophisticated. House rules make perfect sense once you see the care taken to keep this condo nice and neat. The neighborhood has everything to eat and drink and even a grocery store located just outside the lobby with great foods and wines! We stayed in one night and enjoyed old movies on the large TV while alternating our view of the city. We will visit again for sure.

Outstanding as usual.

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed in a different unit owned by Jeri-Lou & James previously. Obviously we enjoyed our first stay enough to return to another unit of theirs. Just bring your season appropriate clothing and everything else is taken care of here in The Penthouses @ Grand Plaza. Thanks again.

Going to Chicago?...The Grand Plaza...Beautiful!! plus!!... location...location...location!!

  • 5 of 5

The Grand Plaza will give you... Walking distance to EVERYTHING! Navy Pier, Millennium park, Magnificent Mile....river boat cruise (a must!)..great restaurants, cafe's, bars...beautiful parks...ect..ect.. ect... We even walked to Wrigley Field to enjoy a Cubs game...this is a long walk though.(2 hrs!)..not for everyone!, but so worth it for us as we were able to sight see along the way...walk along the beautiful walk/bike trail along the Michigan Lake beach!!. BEAUTIFUL!!!... .. I can not say enough about our stay at The Grand Plaza, from the very beggining, Jeri Lou (the owner) replied to my email messages within minutes!! She was very friendly and always sensitives to any questions or concerns I may have! Her quick response always amazed me. The appartment itself is beautiful!.. beautiful modern kitchen (with all the amenities you would need)..wonderful living room with a full wall of windows and walk out to the deck to appreciate the MAGNIFICIENT VIEW!! It's worth being on this 50th floor, the view in the day and night time is worth paying more!!..you get more!!!!! we were 3 girlfriends and the sleeping arrangement to this one bedroom appartment was no problem!! The livingroom couch opens to a queen size bed...easy blow up (lest than a minute) with no effort! I will definately recommend this place to my familly and friends and soooo wish that I will be back again. I LOVED!!!! my first visit to Chicago.. Will definately stay here again if I am lucky enough to come again, hopefully with my husband!

Thank you Jeri Lou and the wonderfull staff at The Grand Plaza...so great!! I can't say it enough, don't just get a hotel room... pay more!!! You will definately not regret it!!

:) my friends and I are truly grateful for our wonderful stay at The Grand Plaza and our visit to Chicago.

Clean and well furnished

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and well furnished. I appreciate the owners wanting to keep the condo clean; expressing concern about not marking walls or getting dirt on the carpet. It would have been helpful to know prior to booking about the request to remove shoes. I must wear orthotics & need to wear shoes. I cleaned the bottom of one pair of shoes & designated them as my indoor shoes. Also, we were concerned that the few dirt marks on the carpet would be blamed on us, as well as some of the marks on the wall.

The owner requested us to inspect things upon arrival & call if there was a problem. I understand this, however, some things aren't noticed until later. The noisy dryer, for example.I texted the owners but did not hear back. Again, we just wanted to make sure we were not blamed for an existing problem & do get back our deposit. I did even take pictures of the marks on the walls and carpet stains.

Other than anxiety about not getting our deposit back & being blamed for some existing issues, our experience was very pleasant.

The absolute most perfect place to stay in Chicago!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best condo in the city!! The location was absolutely perfect--right in the middle of everything and just steps away from an L (subway) stop. We walked or took the L everywhere--so convenient! And you couldn't ask for better views! 50 stories up--overlooking the lights of the city with Lake Michigan as a backdrop--just stunning! The condo is beautiful, very nicely decorated and has everything you need for your stay. The owners are super responsive and very accommodating and easy to work with. We can't wait to go back! If you're coming to Chicago, you need to stay here!
