Private Room in River West with a great view from your bedroom window. My place is quiet and clean. I love hosting guests who are visiting for work or play.
Guests will be provided with:
My neighborhood has a lot of great restaurants and bars. I will leave a few recommendations for you when you arrive!
I'm 2 blocks from the Blue Line and there's a bus stop right on my street- so public transit is very easy! You are also welcome to drive because I have free parking in my area.
The reservation was canceled 15 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Clean, easy to contact, and hassle free experience. Would definitely stay there again.
I flew into Chicago for a combined business/pleasure visit. I chose Mary's place largely for her location-her neighborhood reminds me of what Wicker Park was like 20 years: lots of funky bars/restaurants dispersed throughout a very diverse, bohemian neighborhood. Secondly, her close proximity to the blue line el-I was traveling via O'Hare, and Mary's place is a short walk to the blue line el stop.
The neighborhood is terrific, and Mary's place fits in beautifully-a nicely redone vintage apartment with high ceilings, nice woodwork-they do not make windows like that anymore-while being very tastefully decorated throughout, with lots of natural light. The bed itself is very comfortable. Mary responds to any questions very quickly.
This place is perfect for younger couples in their 20's & 30's, or anyone that wants to experience living in a real, authentic, Chicago neighborhood. Not just a great place to sleep, but a wonderful experience in urban living.
Very highly recommended!!
I had a short but nice stay at Mary's place. She is friendly and easy going and was very accommodating with my check-in in the evening. That helped a lot! The bed is comfy, the room clean and modern, the apartment nice and spacious. Guests have easy access to public transport – but you can also walk downtown, it's not far. Good place, recommended!
Great location. Close to public transportation and the loop. Mary was accommodating with my last minute reservation and late check-in. Her place is very nice, clean, and she has taken the time to provide an environment that is comfortable and welcoming.
Third stay with Mary. As ever, an extremely easy, agreeable stay. You're not going to find a better host.
Staying at Mary's place was great! She was able to accommodate an earlier check-in. The whole place looks wonderful, and I found my room to be clean and warm. The shower was excellent. Overall I had a very pleasant experience.
We had a really nice stay at Mary's place. Mary is a great host and the flat is really spacious! It is very well located on West Grand avenue, only a few minutes from train station.
I recommend staying there!
Mary was friendly and was very easy to communicate with. She was quite flexible with the check-in and check-out times, which were a huge plus. When we arrived, she gave us great tips on nearby places to eat as well as using public transportation (the bus line is really really close!). It was also really great having free parking, especially finding a spot on Grand Ave. right in front of the apartment building. The room is facing the front of the building, so it was nice being able to see my car from there! The apartment itself was very clean and spacious and looks just like the pictures.
As described in Mary's posting, she has another room available for rent (the futon room), so overall, her apartment is a 3 bedroom/1 bath. The room I rented is next to the living room, while the futon room is by the kitchen towards the back of the apartment. As a heads-up, the walls are pretty thin, so if you're a light sleeper, it might be useful to bring ear plugs in case other (Airbnb) guests are hanging out in the living room. As stated in other reviews, the apartment is on the 4th floor and doesn't have an elevator, so make sure you can carry your stuff up the stairs!
Overall, great place and friendly host!
Mary was very hospitable! Her room was clean and close to everything. Staying there was a pleasure.
