About Goriana Alexander

I wanted to create a place that was nostalgic of the 50's and the celebrities that remind of us of those monumental movies, music and just over all feeling of talent and history and people who I believe were impressionable to all of us today. For each of my celebrities I believe they have something that made an impact in our lives and stood for something and impacted us in some way.....

I love decorating and have been in real estate for years and I believe in renovating and keeping the original beauty but updating it for the finer luxuries of todays travelers.

Goriana Alexander purchased this apartment in 2015

Beautiful B&B in Gold Coast

  • 4 of 5

The room and building were fabulous, in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to lots of great restaurants and attractions. Those not within walking distance were a short cab/uber drive away. The hostess, Danica, was welcoming and gracious and the place had everything we could need or want. Our room was wonderful, and we loved the outdoor patio, although it would have been nice if they had turned on the firepit.

A warning to those with feather allergies, ALL comforters, mattress covers, feather bed, throw pillows and even pens are feather for the luxury, and they do not have replacements to accommodate, so bring your own.

That notwithstanding, we will be returning to try out other rooms in this b&b, but we will bring our own pillows and blankets. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

Truly exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5

This is my 3rd time staying at this property and the experience has been consistently exceptional. The location in the Gold Coast area cannot be beat for the price paid and the inclusion of street parking for no add'l cost was a nice surprise. The rooms themselves are extremely comfortable and unique. The music selections are vast and although I do not drink coffee the Keurig in the room is a nice touch along with the full refrigerator, microwave and kitchen supplies. There is also a public area downstairs that has add'l treats as well as a nice common area and even a stove for cooking. Nicole does a terrific job of making sure that you have a wonderful stay and is very proactive with organizing the check-in process in a quick and efficient manner. Although I was here for business purposes there was a large group that was renting several rooms which would be perfect as a place for a family or group of friends. The proximity of the property to restaurants, bars and shopping is terrific. I highly recommend.

More than we Imagined

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Elizabeth Taylor room was more than we could have asked for. Every detail has been thought out and you will not find a more comfortable place to stay. We will definitely be coming back to stay in the future.

Best Place I Have Ever Stayed!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Elizabeth Taylor suite. I have stayed in many places in the city, as I travel there often and this by far is the best place I have ever stayed. The thing that stands out the most is the old-world Chicago feel & decor plus the location. It's right off Lake Shore Dr., about a five minute walk to Michigan Ave. It is on a quaint tree-lined street full of century-old walkup brownstones. Old Chicago at its finest. The attention to detail with the decor of the room was incredible. It felt so cozy. I never wanted to leave!

They supply you with water, coffee, actual creamer (not the powder stuff) & bathroom supplies (including actual products, not just travel size hotel stuff). I never knew this upon checkin but I was talking with another resident and they said we were given snacks in the shared fridge downstairs. I count vouch for that though, as that resident also said it was never stocked as it should have been.

My booking experience with the owner was flawless. The manager, Kyle was very thorough and easy to get ahold of. He did a great job! Overall, I can't say enough good things about the place. I look forward to coming back, hopefully in winter because I know that room would be so cozy!
