The Space

We offer a one bedroom in a large, luxurious town home located near the Chicago Loop. Includes free parking, WiFi, cable and washer/dryer access.

You'll enjoy the privacy and comfort of your own bedroom, a fully-equipped modern kitchen and full access to the dining and living rooms. Long-term stays are available as well.

We're just a few blocks away from Chicago's lakefront, providing great bike trails, running paths, beaches and gardens, not to mention views of one of the world's most scenic waterfront skylines. We're also close to McCormick Place, University of Chicago, Hyde Park, UIC, IIT and many downtown universities, as well many local attractions and historical sites.

Getting around is easy as we're only a block away from a public transit stop. There, you can catch a bus that'll take you directly downtown in minutes or you can transfer to the subway for connecting to all parts of the city, including both airports.

If you have a car there is ample, free street parking and the Loop is only a 10 minute drive.

This is a great place for you if you'd like to be close to the energy of Chicago's vibrant Loop but want to experience a unique, local neighborhood.
