Nice comfy master room for rent. Full operating closet, with all of the amenities at your finger tips throught out the apartment to share with you. Great for a quick getaway and looking for a nice comy place to sleep.
Luxury Hyde Park Condo is the a sheik high rise condo in the heart of Hyde Park, a very diverse middle class working community. The unit is clean, well maintained, modern and styled with great taste. The building is very safe, quiet and peaceful. The unit is stocked with fresh and clean linen/towels and an abundance of cookware. You will feel at peace, which is important for anyone's stay, including my own. The building has a 24hr gym and laundry facility.
THE NEIGHBORHOOD: HYDE PARK
Hyde Park is a true Chicago neighborhood. It is probably one of the most diverse and educated community areas within the entire city. Anyone would blend right in - which I think is key when visiting a new place.
PLACES TO EAT:
There are a good number of restaurant options in the area from sushi to Mediterranean along with a few Starbucks sprinkled along the way. There's also a new local movie theater all within walking distance from the condo along 55th, 57th & 53rd, which are main streets within the Hyde Park Community area.
THINGS TO SEE:
Also within walking distance/or short commuting distance to the Smart Museum of Art, Dusable Museum, The Oriental Museum, Frank Lloyd Wright Robie House, Midway Plaisance, University of Chicago, The Museum of Science & Industry and the beautiful lakefront and gorgeous Lake Shore Drive.
Hyde Park is also a very safe community area in part because we have two police departments : the Chicago Police Dept & State of Illinois - University of Chicago police (largest university police unit in the state) in the area.
PUBLIC TRANSIT & BIKE FRIENDLY:
I live close to public transit to the EAST /lakefront (near Museum of Science & Industry) with multiple express buses that run directly downtown along Lake Shore and to the WEST through the park, to the CTA Green/Red Line (which has been re-routed) this summer. In addition, there is a light rail line called Metra that also runs on the hour to downtown from Hyde Park.
If you have a bike with you, there are new bike routes along 55th Street right across the street, that will guide you directly to the lakefront and the populous 16 mile bike/running path towards downtown and beyond.
CENTS $$ & SENSIBILITY:
If you are anything like me, you prefer a place with a reasonable price point, in a good and safe area and minus the hotel tax, city tax, county tax (can't forget about Cook County), excise fees, parking fees, rental car fees, and bloated parking rates (thanks to the previous mayor and his infinite wisdom).
Unless authorized: Check in is at 3pm and check out is at 11am.
Great place, was exactly the way it was described on here. Antonio was really good at giving/leaving instructions. I really loved the Hyde Park area.
The place was well kept and really nice. I enjoyed my stay and would recommend it for others.
We enjoyed our stay. A quiet and clean apartment with a nice view of the city. Uniquely situated in Hyde Park with a large number of walkable bars and resturants.
Tony made us feel welcome, we felt safe in the building (there was security in the front entrance and you need a keycard to get in). Checking in was easy and swift, we appreciated that. He was also helpful in helping us answer our questions about parking nearby.
Tony made us feel very welcome and at home. His place was very clean and orderly, just like the pictures. It was very easy to get access to the condo and we found it to be in a very convenient location.
The host was totally helpful and accommodating. He responded to texts promptly, and I felt well cared for. The neighborhood is definitely up and coming, but overall great because of the free parking all around. The condo is exactly as described, although, the building isn't my ideal in terms of common areas. Lots of pets in the building, and the lobby, entrances, and elevators are very cold and uninviting.
The neighborhood and the apartment were comfortable and safe. One thing that was a little bit uncomfortable was that we were unable to get into the apartment when we got there. We had to wait in the cold for 5-10 minutes before another person who lived in the building let us in.

One exciting thing that you will know about me is that I am neat freak! Never worry about checking into my place with the fear of uncleanliness. You will appreciate checking into a home that feels like your home. With all the amenities that you would expect to find in your own place. From fresh towels, general toilet trees, complementary water and soft drinks for your pleasure.
