Overview
Condo/Apartment -
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
Chicago, Illinois
We have two really incredible vacation rental apartments that are a great value. We have 8 years of 5 star rentals at this and other sites.

Our rentals are located very close to our Downtown city center and very close to everything that people come to Chicago for.

The view in our first picture is the amazing Chicago city skyline view from our roof deck. Our deck is open from April through November. Our next picture is our large 5 star hot tub. It's your new best friend after a day of travel, sightseeing, or business. These are both great places to relax. We also have a huge walk in steam bath shower with Grohe body sprays . Our guests say it's like a massage.

We lived in this building ourselves for many years . We completely renovated our building with many great amenities that you won't find in many rentals....

From the first enquiry, we couldn't fault the service we have received from the owners. A quick initial response, followed by a massive amount of useful information about the rental and the local services, which was so helpful as we were travelling from the UK and this was our first visit to Chicago. The rental itself was perfect for our...

Thank you so very much for your kind thoughts Steve. We are so glad that you enjoyed our rental that was our home for many years. We are sorry that the heater failed on the hot tub and it was down for a few days. It's been 3 years since it had been out of service, and I'm sorry that...

I have rented short term condos and apartments many times and this was by far the easiest and most professional! Bob is great! The location provides easy access to McCormick Place, White Sox, and all of Chicago with a very short walk to the Red Line! Great view of the Chicago Skyline on the rooftop deck! I was in town...

Thanks so much Dave. We're glad that you enjoyed the apartment as much as I did when I lived there. I really miss being there.

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Our building and street is a quiet and peaceful place. We don't allow parties or gatherings of any kind. Our rentals are not a good fit for the very late night or very hard partying crowd. We prefer that our guests are 30 years old or older, but we will discuss rentals with very responsible adults 25 and older. Our guests appreciate that we have a quiet and peaceful environment.

The maximum capacity of the apartment is 6 persons. We have 3 queen beds (and an air bed that can be set up for one extra sleeping space). We will sometimes make slight adjustments on these limits if there are infants or very small children.

How to get there
Airport: Midway Airport: 11.0 km
Railway: Amtrak: 4.8 km
We provide directions from both airports, our train station, and driving directions in our guest files. We also have information on everything to do in Chicago with links. We will send these when you reserve your rental. If you can fly into Midway, it is much closer to our city center with a lot less traffic. It is also a smaller airport and you can get in and out much faster.
