Manilow Suites at Columbus Plaza
Reviewed 19 April 2013

I am staying at the Manilow Suites on my business trips to Chicago, IL for almost ten years. I explored mainly North Harbor Tower and Columbus Plaza residences (studio or junior one-bedroom apartments). In all these place and consistently over the visits I found clean apartment with weekly cleaning, all new or nearly new kitchen utensils of any kind, full range of towels and linens, and a very friendly attitude of the Manilow Suites personnel. They promptly respond to the booking requests, provide additional service, and what distinct them from some other similar businesses in Chicago they have no hidden charges and strange conditions of apartment occupancy. Such as that, you can start only on a certain day of month to be eligible for the monthly fee. At Manilow Suites you can start occupancy when you want it and they give you single charge upfront and it does not change, so you always know what it will cost you. They have good package for monthly stays. Depending on the apartment size, it could be twice as less per night as in the regular hotel room in the same location. In addition, in opposite to the most of the hotels they feature fully equipped kitchen (kitchen range, microwave oven, dishwasher, full-size fridge, toaster, can opener, coffee machine, etc) for those who prefer to eat at home. As they manage property within residential buildings, you will not find room service as well as the restaurant and bar right on the premises. If you do not care about such things, Manilow Suites is just for you. The apartment of any size is equipped with the cable TV, DVD and Internet (cable and wi-fi, unlimited traffic included) and they arrange for use of the health club and laundry facility on the premises. They offer phone rates at residential rating; however, in the age of Skype it is not that critical. The location of the residences is just as right for those who do business in Chicago loop and nearby. It also places major Chicago attractions on the walking distance such that Magnificent Mile (Michigan Ave), Millenium Park, Chicago Art Institute and Chicago Symphony, Navy Pier and Grand Park are about 10-20 min walk from the North Harbor Tower and the Columbus Plaza. Several times I rented an apartment at the Columbus Plaza that has great view over Chicago River from the Trump Tower and Wrigley Building to the Lake Michigan. In conclusion, I switched to the Manilow Suites from the other short-term corporate housing about ten years ago and never regretted about it. Manilow Suites is competivite when it comes to monthly stays in Chicago and even for the short stay, I would choose Manilow Suites as it provides anticipated high level of service and comfort in the ways I need it.

I stayed there for 2 months. It is very clean and safe. It has convenient location. It has a fitness center and a business center, which i find to be very good. The emergency call is always responsive and helpful. What i requested were all satisfied in a very timely and proper manner. The door man is always there to help the residents and make the apartment safe. The neighbors are very friendly. It presents gifts, coupons, and celebrations for holidays or special events.
