Great check-in experience90% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

The Blues Brothers Express is close to The Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, McCormick Place, China Town, Grant/Millennium Park & Lake Michigan. The neighborhood is great and only a block from one of Chicago's largest public transit hubs. The space is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. It's rumored that the building, built in 1890, was used by Al Capone to facilitate his South Side operations. - ***PLEASE READ-->Space is next to the El Tracks (Train) and does get loud.

Great location, only a 5 minute walk to the nearest train station. 24hr grocery store nearby, multiple eateries within walking distance as well as Trader Joe’s. Train is right outside of window and can be loud but I was able to sleep without problems. The sofa bed was comfortable…

Nice location, not too far from main attractions in Chicago. The place was a bit smaller and run down then I had expected, but by no means was it in bad condition. The place was clean and Charlie was very easy to get a hold of and was very kind during this whole experience. Thank…

Good location, very small space. Was a bit alarmed when we found a bra in the apartment that was left behind from the previous guest...was not ours.

This apartment was conveniently located and had all the necessary amenities. The subway was just as loud as Charlie and other reviewers had advised, but other than subway noise, this was a great spot.
