BEST DEAL YOU WILL FIND. Your own junior one bedroom convertable in the heart of downtown Chicago. Great place to use as your headquarters for touring Chicago. Short 3 -5 minute walk to Chicago's greatest shopping destinations. This is a prime location that is steps away from the magnificent mile shopping, some of Chicago's greatest restaurants, museums, River North bars and clubs, famous theatres, beaches, Navy Pier, Millenium Park, and everything Chicago has to offer. Newer building that is above a Whole Foods and has great pool with a skyline view. The common area is an urban oasis that has gas grills, a bar area, fire pits, and a great view of the city. Discounted parking available at $27 a night. Free business center with computers, internet, and p[rinters available on the 7th floor. Wireless internet also available in unit. Free coffee and tea service in the mornings from 5am-12. I promise that this is the perfect location to explore the city. Most listings pull you in with cheap prices and promises of being in a great location but this place delivers on both...just check the reviews. Everything is within walking distance plus there is public tranportation access right in front of the building. I am a lifelong Chicagoan with plenty of suggestions for what to see and do and hope to make you feel right at home. Hotels in the area charge upwards of $300 a night and do not offer half the amenities. You will have full access to the apartment including washer/dryer, dishwasher, refrigerator, stove, 40 inch HDTV, balcony with a skyline view, and much much more. The most important thing to me is that you come away raving about your experience in the city.
This was my first time using Airbnb and I had a great experience. My boyfriend and I were in town for a wedding and Kevin was a wonderful host. He was flexible with our schedule for check in time and made sure to show us all the amenities in the building before he left. He also gave us detailed instructions in case we had any problems. His unit is clean & well taken care of and I would definitely stay with him again. If you are looking for a great location & a great host, this is your best bet in the Chicago area.
Fellow travelers, you are in for a treat! Kevin is a wonderful host and the place is fantastic! It is one block from the train station in a really lovely, safe neighborhood that is located nearby arts, food, shopping, and entertainment.
Admittedly, I was caught up w/work & travel and booked this place 4 days prior to staying. I appreciate that Kevin was understanding, accommodating, thoughtful, and gracious. He asked how/when I was getting to Chicago and took the initiative to give me easy options for traveling to the apartment (see? so thoughtful!!)
The place was very tidy and navigating the building was really simple (it is a secure building with a front desk person at all times). Plus, the neighbors are very nice! I was in town to run the Chicago Half Marathon (and shop & eat, too). While waiting out front for a taxi, there were some folks in a car waiting for someone to come out of the building. They took notice of me, asked if I was running the race as I had a race bib on, and offered me a ride (they were also running and obviously didn't look like killers, so I said "totally!"). Turns out that we ran the whole race together - - really nice, fun people!
Back to Kevin being thoughtful, he was a great communicator before, during, and after my stay. He called to make sure I got to the train from my flight alright. When I text to ask about the internet/coffee he was right there responding! I also appreciate that he text to make sure everything was going alright w/the apartment and getting around, and also congratulated me on the race :)
I will definitely stay here again!!
This is a great place to stay! Communication with Kevin was excellent. He always returned any calls promptly and made sure that everything was okay for my stay. Nice studio apartment - very reasonably priced. I would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.
Communication prior to arrival with Kevin was very good. On arrival, Kevin was there to show us the apartment and the facilities the building had to offer - fitness centre, pool, bbq area and large supermarket.
As has previously been reported, the location is excellent with all attractions within walking distance.
The apartment itself is well furnished and has all necessary facilities - the balcony is a bonus.
We found Kevin easy to talk to and willing to be contacted by phone if we had any questions which, probably to the comprehensive coverage on arrival, we did not have.
If visiting Chicago then Kevin's apartment is well worthy of consideration.
Kevin's place was just perfect. The location and views are great plus the building amenities, like free coffee, computers, and swimming pool were a terrific bonus. I would definitely recommend this place.
Kevin is awesome. His place is clean and tidy and is in a great location smack dab in the epicenter of ChiTown, you can easily keep yourself occupied on foot for days and days from there. He is a great host and showed me on the map some great suggestions for eat, fun and local activities. We love to do city walkabouts and Chicago is lights out for this.
Kevin is a great host! The apartment is beautiful and location is amazing. We could walk everywhere and didn't even need to take a public transport. Kevin suggested us very nice places to eat and to see in the city, we followed all gis suggestions and it was unbelievable! I will suggest everybody to stop at this perfect apartment!
Kevin, was great, only sorry I did not have more time. Place is well located and very nice, great building with vast amenities.
Kevin was a great host. He was very easy going and accommodating. The apartment was just as described. Very clean, a quick walk to Michigan Ave, great amenities. We will definitely seek out Kevin for our next trip to Chicago!
Kevin is a perfect host! The apartment is close to everywhere you will probably go in Chicago. There is a Metro station just around the corner and the building is pretty new and has many facilities. We had a wonderfull time in the Wind City! I will certainly stay in Kevin's place again on my next trip to Chicago!!!!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
