Great middle ground between a hotel and staying at an individually owned property

  • 5 of 5

This property, while VRBO, is managed by a professional group - http://www.athomeinnchicago.com. We saw the benefits of this arrangement immediately when the wax ring on the toilet broke while we were there. We called while on our way to the Shedd Aquarium downtown and it was fixed before we made it back to the unit. I'm not sure that would have happened if this was just someone's house they were away from. And everything in terms of payment and details for checking in were extremely clear and well documented.

As for the accommodations, they were exactly as advertised. Pictures perfectly represent the property and the location is great. Being a few blocks from the Sedgwick stop on the EL means you can get just about anywhere in the city easily.

My only minor complaint is that the property smelled musty and that took some getting used to. The place was reasonably clean but not immaculate. We have very young kids so I spent quite a bit of time on the floor and fishing toys out from under furniture so keep in mind that my inspection of the cleanliness got a little more intense than most people will experience!

I would definitely stay again.

I was really pleased with my three day stay. Everything was clean and quite comfortable, and especially warm- it was hovering around negative degrees outside. All amenities for cooking and cleaning were available so I didn't have to alter my diet and eat out while there. The code entry doors were nice, didn't have to fumble around with a key or key card. The house is extremely historic and retains enough old time charm without sacrificing modern convieniences. Parking was decent, wasnt hard to find a spot despite deep snow on the ground. We will be staying there again next we come back to Chicago!

Great location, beautiful space!

  • 5 of 5

The Biddle House was the perfect location for me and my husband to spend a weekend with 6 of our friends! We opened the doors between the two floors and had plenty of gathering space for our large group.

Comfy & Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Biddle House (2nd Floor) was wonderful. The location was perfect - close to sites, great restaurants, Lincoln Park. The Old Town neighborhood is beautiful. The apartment accommodated 4 people very well and was very clean and comfy. The owner/management company was very responsive to all of our inquiries. I highly recommend Twin Anchors, a historic, neighborhood tavern/restaurant that was once a speakeasy. Good food and fun. The Chicago Historical Society Museum is close by too. What a fabulous city!

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

We know this area well, it is our favorite neighborhood to stay in Chicago, so perfect location. Apartment was great, spotlessley clean and extremely comfortable. If I had to make one or two minor suggestions..... there were about 6 coat hangers provided for the whole apartment so my husband had to go to the dry cleaners around the corner and ask for some (they happily obliged us with about 20) and a toaster would have been useful. But other than those 2 very minor things, everything else was excellent and we will definitely choose the Biddle House again whenever we are in Chicago (which is often as our kids are in college there!).
