Excellent stay, phenomenal location!

  • 5 of 5

Traveled for work and pleasure and had the good fortune to book this beautiful condo. The location in River North is excellent- surrounded by shops, restaurants, boutiques- but high enough above it all, to be away from the hustle and bustle. The unit was in great condition; it was clean, well furnished and felt very well cared for. Amenities were also as advertised- including access to a phenomenal gym! An additional bonus was the lounge level coffee service available every morning. In short, an excellent stay! Highly recommended!

Business and pleasure ...

  • 5 of 5

This is such a great place to stay in Chicago! Literally 25 steps from the Grand stop on the Red Line, the location can't be beat, especially with all the restaurants, the river, and the Magnificent Mile all an easy walking distance. Great views of the lake and Chicago 360 (i.e. John Hancock Observatory). I have stayed in other rental properties before, but this was the best appointed--it had everything we needed to feel at home and a grocery store right downstairs. Jim and Jeri-Lou are great about communication before and after the stay. I hope to stay in Penthouse #6 again the next time I come to Chicago in a few months.

Beautiful property in a great location!

This penthouse apartment was wonderful for our trip to Chicago. It was centrally located, had great views of the city, and very nice amenities. The owners were very easy to work with and attentive to our needs.

Excellent location and exactly as described.

This was one of the best rentals we've had through HomeAway. The location is excellent. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. The view was amazing. Even the doormen were nice.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights in this 2 bedroom apartment in January 2016. It was perfect. We gave the three kids the master bedroom and took the second bedroom which was still as big as some hotel rooms! The living room had plenty of space for the 5 of us to sprawl out and gather round the large coffee table for card games. There is a front closet with room for all our coats and boots - a huge boon as we didn't have to pile them all up in a corner.

Kitchen was well-stocked (the only thing we noticed that it was missing was a tablespoon - and we certainly weren't baking anything on our Chicago getaway). You could easily create a fabulous meal in that kitchen - we ate out of course at nearby fabulous restaurants. We shopped for breakfast and snacks at the grocery store in the same building (doesn't get more convenient than that!). Description may have mentioned a washer-dryer but I missed it when booking so was pleasantly surprised to find the unit had one.

What else can I say? Amazing view, convenient location, comfortable beds and seating, plenty of space. Oh yes, and when my husband left his laptop in the lobby in the rush of loading our car on our way home, the owners went out of their way to track it down with the doorman and make sure the laptop was stored safely until we could get someone there - and the owners did offer to figure out how to ship it to us but we didn't want to make them responsible for shipping a laptop so we made a friend do it instead :-)

Will definitely try to book again on our next Chicago trip.
