Perfect! Perfect! Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 ladies celebrating our 69 th birthdays and touring Chicago ! The condo was absolutely perfect ! Comfy beds, great kitchen and dining room. We so enjoyed the living room to spread out and review our day glued to our cell phones. Owner very easy to contact and property manager was a hoot !! Great location for getting into the city. Quiet neighborhood.

Parking on street or garage. We just loved this condo!

Very clean and perfect for us!!

Comfortable, convenient, and considerate

  • 5 of 5

The location was GREAT! A 10-15 minute walk to the metro and a 20-30 minute ride downtown. There is a grocery store on the way to the condo from the train which was exactly what we needed. The home was beautifully decorated and the furniture very comfortable - all 7 of us were able to comfortably hang out together. The cable and wireless were easy to access and worked great. Unfortunately, we found out the hard way that none of the servings dishes (plates, mugs, etc.) were microwave safe and we had a few burned hands. (Recommendation - replace them all.) The beds were comfortable, however a few more blankets would have been helpful and the bedding could be upgraded. The kitchen was stocked with almost everything we needed although a few more spices would have been nice to have - like salt and pepper. :) Also, the manager who meet us upon arrival was wonderful, and walked us through everything. He responded quickly to a need of more toilet paper (although more than 2 rolls should probably have been stocked at the beginning on our stay given 7 women were going to stay for a long weekend.) Overall, great accommodations and would definitely stay there again!

Excellent space and furnishings

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults staying in the apartment and the large space allowed for all of us to gather very comfortably while still being able to go down the hall to the bedrooms to have a place to retreat. The combination of the really large kitchen, huge couches, and great dining table makes the space very functional. The furniture was very comfortable. Everything was very clean and cared for. The on-sight manager, Ross, was accommodating and very helpful. There is one tiny garage spot, and we were able to find street parking in front of the building during the day-- evenings were a little more challenging, but we did not need a permit and found something within a block. There is a large, clean grocery store within blocks.

Overall it is a good stay

  • 4 of 5

Six of us friends had a reunion in Chicago in late November. The house was very cozy and clean. We liked the spacious living room and dining area. It was very comfortable spending two nights together in the house. The only unpleasant experience we had was when we mistakenly left one key in the key box instead of returning all keys together, the house keeper was very upset and yelled over phone. Returning deposit was a bit slow, processed after 10 days. I wish this can be quicker so as my budget calculation work went smoother.

Very comfortable property!

  • 4 of 5

Residences on the Avenue is a very large, comfortably appointed condo in the greater Chicago area. We spend 5 nights there with our adult daughters and found the kitchen well equipped, and the apartment very comfortable. We rented the garage space as well and I would recommend this to anyone staying in this condo with a car. Street parking is tight. The condo was close to grocery stores and a shopping area. We were able to drive to downtown Chicago in about 25 minutes and O'Hare in about 30 minutes as well. I would recommend this especially to a larger party.

Great stay for trip to a Cubs game

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed here last week and were glad we did. We originally had a hotel booked, but changed our minds after finding this place. It's convinient to the train station to ride anywhere you want in the city, but if you want to rent a car there is parking available. We came in to attend a couple games at Wrigley and this property gave my group ample space and ammenities to make it feel like home. I would definitely recommend it.

Thanks again and when the Cubs make it back to the NLCS we will be back!
