This studio really is steps to everything you'd want to see in Chicago. If you're visiting family, vacationing in Chicago, or are here on business, this building will make your stay stress-free and comfortable.

The Space

The unit is quiet, warm, and southern-facing in a luxury residential high-rise. The amenities both in the apartment and the building are 5-Star. Here are some, but not all the features:

*Comfy, New Queen Bed (Wake-up well rested)
*Washer/Dryer (pack light and wash during your stay)
*Full Kitchen (Stock the refrigerator w/ your favorites from Trader Joe's and Whole Foods a few blocks the street.)
*Beautiful View of Chicago from 19 Floors Up.
*Central Heat and Air Conditioning
*Free WiFi
*Absolutely Clean
*Very Quiet.
*Sauna, Steam Room, Hot Tub, Resistance Pool
*State of the art gym (with Basketball Court)
*Massage Envy in the building
*Coffee Shop called Dollop in Building (great coffee!)
*Pool table, Foosball, TV Center
*Outdoor heated pool.
*24 Hour door staff (They keep it ,Friendly, Safe and Secure)
...and many more amenities.

We're located in Streeterville (downtown Chicago). The building is just two blocks from Lake Michigan (beaches, parks, bike trails), two blocks from Michigan Ave (endless shopping), and is about a three min. walk to Navy Pier. There are tons of bars, restaurants and clubs all within walking distance; museums, nightlife and recreation all right here.

The Red Line CTA (better known as "L") stops about 4 city blocks away (for trips to Wrigley Field or Lincoln Park) and buses pick-up right outside the building. If you have a ZipCar membership, we have two cars in the building and a dozen more within two blocks. Email me if you have questions about the apartment or the city.

ALSO: If this studio is not available for your trip, please check out my Urban Oasis Studio in the side bar. That studio is nearly identical to this one.

Thanks,
Brooks!

  • Everything was excellent. All you need for a comfortable stay. Less than 10 minutes walk to the conference I was attending at the Sheraton, so super convenient. The doormen of the apartment block were great. The apartment itself was spacious, although does not have a dining table, only a breakfast counter. But unless you want to cook a lot of fancy meals the dining set up in the room is fine. Lots of good restaurants nearby. Brooks was very efficient and the studio apartment very clean, quiet and relaxing. Great bed and really good bathroom. I would recommend this apartment without any reservation whatsoever.

  • We just spent the 3 nights in Chicago and brooks place was perfect. It is in a great location and walking distance to the river, navy pier and Michigan avenue shopping. Brooks let us have an early check in and late check out to accommodate our flights which we really appreciated. Next time we come to chicago we would love to stay in the studio again.

  • Brooks' place was clean, beautiful and in the absolute perfect location. We loved staying so close to all of the downtown attractions--everything is within walking distance! Brooks also made sure we knew that he was available during our stay for questions/concerns. I highly, highly recommend it!!

  • Thanks Brooks, the experience was truly amazing. Your apartment is immaculate and coupled with the amenities within the building our stay exceeded our expectations (the in-house gym we especially enjoyed!). Streeterville is a great location to stay and within walking distance to all the top attractions. Thanks again and I'll be recommending your apartment to all my friends and family looking to visit Chicago in the near future.

  • The list was everything we expected and more! Brooks' place was extremely nice, convenient, with plenty of amenities. It was a perfect spot for my wife's first visit to the city. We look forward to visiting Chicago again and would highly recommend anyone staying at this fine luxury studio!

  • This is a great place to stay in a great location. The studio is very comfortable and is as described, a short walk to most of the downtown sights and shopping. I walked almost everywhere and saw all the interesting galleries and skyscrapers of Chicago so the apartment and location suited me perfectly.

  • Brooks was extremely accommodating and easy to contact! He is a wonderful host, and is exactly what anyone would hope for from a host on Airbnb. The apartment is as listed, it is clean, modern and new. The view is immaculate, especially at night. Location wise, the studio really is 'steps to everything'. If you're planning a trip to Chicago, you need not look any further than Brooks' studio. The only warning I would have for anyone regarding 'Luxury Studio, Steps to Everything' is that it does not come with parking, for those planning on having a car. There is parking located within the building that costs $33 for overnight parking. Alternatively, you may be able to contact Brooks or use hotspot to find cheaper alternatives. Aside from that, I can not fault Brooks' studio! Will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Chicago.

  • Brooks' pad was a fantastic place to stay. It is close to several large hotels, so if you are here for work, chances are that nearby shuttles will whisk you down to the convention center within 20 minutes. It is also close to several attractions including the official architectural boat tour just across the river, Michigan Avenue for shopping, and the Navy Pier. The host is also very knowledgeable about the area and responsive. The studio was comfortable and had amazing views, with tons of amenities included. Easy to recommend!

  • Great studio, just 5 mins from Mag mile, and 10 min walk from loop. The studio is well equipped and boasts an amazing view from the bed out onto the other high rise apartments of Streeterville, and you can even see the lake. The amenities were great, especially the hot tub, although it was a little cold for the swimming pool. Very responsive host, even though we didn't meet, everything was arranged with the doormen of the apartment block who were very friendly and helpful.

  • In a word... wonderful. Brooks was so welcoming when we arrived, and we truly felt at home in his place. He even sat with us at the coffee shop downstairs and visited with us for a few minutes. His apartment is a beautiful home away from home... we've only just left, and already can't wait to go back. You can't beat the location (tons of great restaurants/coffee shops/shopping/bus lines/Lake MI/Magnificent Mile/Navy Pier) all within walking distance, and the view is definitely as advertised. We really enjoyed winding down each day with a cup of tea and taking in the twinkling lights of the night skyline, right from the bed. Our two year old loved the teddy bear Brooks had tucked away in one of the storage cubes, and the books and music/iPod Brooks had available also really made it feel like home! We made use of the bottle of sunscreen he had available in the bathroom, and enjoyed the perk of doing laundry BEFORE we got home. :) This was our first AIRBNB experience, and I have a very hard time imagining we'll top it; Brooks certainly kicked it off with a bang! Book this! You'll be so glad you did.

About
Hi, I'm a firefighter and traveler. I see this whole thing as a journey... hopefully with a lot of memorable experiences. If you're like me, meeting new people is the point. AirBnB is a great place to do that. I'm in and out of town visiting other places, and have a pretty nice place to rent if you're interested.
