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

Upscale, quiet, hidden vacation gem!

  • 5 of 5

This place is the bomb! I can't say enough positive things about this property! We stayed in the Liz Taylor room, which is on the first floor. It is a quite large room with upscale furnishings and decor. Everything seems perfectly thought out and designed, from colors to furniture to fixtures. The beauty of it is also the fact that it exists in a building built before 1900, so there are quite old fixtures, floors, etc. Excellent hospitality! Nicole was friendly, helpful and inviting and the cleaning staff as well. This property is on a quiet street a couple blocks north of the Drake, so easy to walk to everything. The Miracle Mile and all that it has to offer as well as walking to the beach and enjoying several restaurants and stores right down the block to the west. You are right in the heart of everything. Close to the subway as well. We would definitely stay here again next time we travel to Chicago!

Looks pretty, but its pretty dirty!

  • 1 of 5

My room, especially the bathroom was dirty. The inside of the toilet was not clean and the more surprising thing, the toilet paper was dirty also. We were given used toiletries. Dealing with the manager was a nightmare. We called and asked were the laundry was and was told we could use it if we finished their laundry in the machines. The breakfast was basically bread and bagels that sat on the counter the entire time we were there. We left a night early, because we dreaded staying there another night. The amenities that they list, are false. This is expensive rental and there is nothing gorgeous about it. It is also far from public transit and a 45 minute walk to the city center. Make a better choice then I did!

Owner's Response: It's always so interesting to see how people lie when they want something for free. Real story is this women even had her daughter in the unit and was visiting her and loved it and wanted to stay longer and for free dirty bathroom I think that's probably the funniest thing I have ever heard so far. Anyone who reads reviews will see this is by far the craziest woman we have ever had - how about this go to your daughters house to do your laundry down the street instead of a hotel. This woman also stole so many bagels out of common area so she could eat in her room and fill her fridge and all the waters and coffees too - it was like she had never eaten before. Not sure about this woman but seems like a traveling hobo be aware of her she is not stable

We were looking at two units in the same area. The first one had a parking spot in a garage that came with the unit. We could come and go as we wanted. Goriana told us we would have free parking with this unit as well. Five hours into our drive to Chicago we get a call from Nicole. There is no free parking and we're advised to check out Spothero. We tried going to several lots closer to the apartment only to find out they were full. Parking was 1.5 miles from the apartment! Plus once you park you have to leave your car. You can't come and go as you please. Friday alone we spent about 3 hours getting parking. On Saturday morning we got up and hiked to the car. There wasn't an attendant there so we had to wait over an hour before someone got there to give us our car back. This parking issue completely changed our trip to Chicago and that doesn't include the additional cost. So make sure have parking figured out in advance

Owner's Response: So in response to your review- parking isn't included in your rental if I was able to give you a street pass I would but as I told you the city banned me from giving passes due to an agreement I made with my license. I explained to you as did nicole numerous times. You are the only person ever that has had such a difficult time with parking as there is 10 garages just at end of block. This gentleman then claimed the day he left he wanted a full refund because he had to wait an hour to get his car at a garage. Ok come on everyone we all know garages dont take an hour to get your car ! So to sum this up- he wanted a refund go figure- he doesn't tell you how much he ate every morning in our common area for free - He even filled his bag with to go items and lots of waters for his long drive back to wisconsin. Did he even eat all weekend ?? This location is located in the heart of everything. If your planning to drive around which he claims he is plan on paying lots of valet charges because it's not free buddy! Good luck and do not ever book at any of our buildings again as we have a list of all names of people like you who like to stay then complain to get everything for free. One star is a joke for what you got and it's obvious your trying to be resentful. The purpose of a review is to rate the property not a parking space that isn't even something we own frankly you look ridiculous. Hopefully people who read this will laugh at you!
