I had a great stay in 1A! John is a very attentive host... seriously, if I ever had a question or issue, he was right there to deal with it. The internet was a bit of an issue throughout, but he managed to get his WIFI guy to figure it out, so it should be fixed for future guests. VERY convenient location too... easy walk to a lot of transportation, groceries, and shops.
My husband and I would definitely recommend this property for anyone looking to experience downtown Chicago, but not wanting to stay in a touristy area. Old Town is 4 blocks from the beach and 10 minute walk to the Mag Mile. Wells Street has great restaurants and is home to Second City. If you are looking for the 4 Seasons- this property isn't for you. If you are looking to stay in a cool unique loft you have found your spot. John Capesius, owner of the property will make sure you have everything you need. We were appreciative and impressed with his immediate responses to all inquiries and requests.
the nicest apartment one can imagine: spacey, VERY cosy, with a lot of design - but with no compromise to convenience. We loved staying in the apartment. We had a great experience. the location is excellent - just a few minutes from any central point of interest, though quiet and secure. the best place fo to feel at home. the host,John, was very nice and careful - answered all of my questions prior to our vacation and did all to make our stay really good. sadly we didnt find time to meet. I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone. thanks a lot John
Great stay in a great location. The room was clean and access to the neighborhood and cabs was outstanding. I would stay here again for future trips to Chicago.

I am a student of life who understands that the only true knowledge is gained through experience and there is never any reward without risk. My professional experience begins with my studies and love of people. Naturally this drove me into sales. My understanding of the fact that sales is the only asset to any organization kept me there. My love of a challenge and of business, fueled my entreprenuerial spirit and it was then I found myself in business for myself. My goals include growing and nurturing our businesses into something that the world can be proud of and benefit from and also to leave this legacy to my sons.
