Manilow Suites At North Harbor Tower
Reviewed 28 July 2014

I just completed one month stay at the Grand Plaza complex in Chicago. The service from Manilow Suites was fantastic. The apartment was clean, well furnished with comfortable bedding and linens. The concierge service provided by the building was very congenial. The amenities in the building were terrific with a great exercise room and lovely pool area. The location could not have been better. My husband, dog and I enjoyed the entire experience.

Room Tip: We rented a 1 bedroom apartment and enjoyed having a kitchen and TV in both bedroom and living room

We stayed at North Harbor Tower for 5 weeks and it really felt like home. The management staff was professional and friendly right from the start. The location was perfect for walking to many tourist destination spots, close to jogging paths, close to markets and restaurants, and the availability of taxi cabs when needed was great! The doormen were helpful and friendly as well. The Manilow Management team was very responsive to any inquiries we had and made the whole experience pleasant and hassle free. The apartment was clean, comfortable, great working AC, water temp and pressure in showers was very good, and the kitchen was well supplied with everything we needed. The amazing view could not be beat! It was a great place to call home during our 5 week stay in Chicago.

I love these guys. The company is very service oriented and reliable, and the properties are beautiful, high end, and well appointed.

Very rarely are there any problems, but when an issue arises they're right on top of it, which I really appreciate. I don't expect things to always go perfectly, but I'm busy and so am mostly interested in what happens if I need some help. I can vouch that they're right on top of it.

The owner, Francine Manilow, is fanatical about customer service, so all of her people are pleasant, professional, and well trained. I highly recommend them if you're going to be staying in Chicago for any length of time - they're a better option than a hotel.

We had an awesome experience with Manilow Suites (again). We stayed at the North Harbor Tower and everything was perfect! The views from our suite were spectacular, overlooking Navy Pier, the river, the harbor, Lake Michigan and the cityscape north of the river. The 2 bedroom apartment was sparkling clean, beautifully furnished and very large. The building itself had an excellent pool, workout facilities, great people at the front desk, and was ideally located. We stayed for 5 nights, and the people at Manilow were professional, helpful, & always available. I can't rave about it enough and would absolutely use Manilow Suites again and again.

Thank you so very much for a review that means everything to me. The greatest challenges I've had is putting everything together. That is the quality, spaciousness, views, and above all an incredible staff that genuinely care about each and every guest.
Again, your comments are greatly appreciated and we look forward to seeing you again

We have had an excelent stay on May, 2014 in a 2-bedroom apartment overlooking the Lake Michigan, the Navy Pier, the beautiful architecture of Chicago, and the Lake Shore. We have been received by Mrs.Francine Manilow in person who has left her assistant Mrs. Maggie taking care of us. The apartment was very good, with nice furniture, all domestic appliances that we might need.Maggie was very attentious, always ready to help. We will be back in the future, for sure!

Wow Manilow! That's all I can say. It was an experience that is fabulous, superlative, marvellous, scintillating, outstanding.....and I run out of adjectives now. We had a mind-blowing suite with a mind-blowing view. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay of five nights here. Superbly convenient from all means.

A special mentioned has to be made about Courtney Ewing, staff at Manilow. She was absolutely brilliant in my interactions with her preceeding the booking and also when we stayed there. In fact she ensured we got everything we wanted and more. A big 'Thanks' to her for making our stay memorable.

We'll come back to this place again and again. I highly recommend this place to any one who wants to have a wonderful stay at Chicago. Take it from me. You'll remember it for a life time.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Michigan lake are awesome

Very friendly and attentive staff (both Manilow Suites and North Harbor Tower), very nicely furnished with all the necessary kitchen items and toiletries. And then there's the spectacular view of Lake Shore Drive, Navy Pier and Lake Michigan. But the best feature hat made my stay extra-exceptional: weekly maid service. Dusting, vacuuming, deep cleaning and ample fresh linens supplied every week. After a busy day, it's great coming home to a clean apartment. But as nice as the apartment is, it's the service and accountability of the Manilow staff that has me sold!

Room Tip: Proximity to the lake and Millennium Park make NHT extra special for late spring and summer stays.

thank you for your review. It is most appreciated.
I am delighted to hear about our housekeeping as we are the only company that provides the same housekeeper each week. I implemented the idea many years ago and am so pleased to hear that it continues to work so well.
