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).
Great space, comfort, and furnished! Proximity to downtown is definitely a plus. Also placed within the historic Hyde Park district, where you don't even have to go far for great dining!
If you have a vehicle parking is tricky, however public transportation and cabs are all nearby.
The host is also supportive and courteous! Definitely would reccomend this space to others!
Everything was perfect! Not even a small gripe! :)
Antonio's condo was safe and clean. The pictures displayed in the bio are accurate. Parking was easy as well. Antonio was quick to respond and answer any questions or provide assistance. I would definitely stay here again.
Thank you, great accommodations!
Antonio's place was definitely a home away from home. It was a pleasure to stay in his modern high rise for a month. Great feeling of security, hospitality, and warm welcomes every time I entered his building. Parking was free, bed was comfortable, and having a great shower and coffee after a long day made this stay all kinds of perfect!
Antonio is a great host and super friendly. Place is wonderful. Can't wait to come back !!
Antonio est tres discret et (website hidden) pas hesiter a lui envoyer un message.
L appartement est super et merite l appelation luxieux, la chambre tres confortable.
Il est tres simple,rapide et peu onereux d acceder au centre de chicago en bus ou train:15 min de trajet
L appartement est situe dans la bonne partie d hyde park mais attention, je recommande de prendre un taxi si il est deja tard.
A very nice, clean apartment in a lovely building and at an excellent location close to the campus of the University of Chicago. The host is very welcoming and accommodating. A minor detail was the lack of reading lights in the bedroom and very squeeky doors, but overall, we very much enjoyed our stay
Antonio is a great host. You always feel welcome in his apartment. The room is very clean and bed is very comfortable. You have the whole of living room and kitchen to use. In all had a great experience. Will surely come again.
I really enjoyed staying in Hyde Park. It is diverse and safe with an easy convenient commute to downtown via express buses.
Antonio was a wonderful host, welcoming me to his very clean and quiet apartment. The overall building too is in fine shape with very attractive art deco common spaces.
Thank you Antonio for being such a great host!
