The Space

(PLEASE READ)I WANT TO FIRST START OFF BY SAYING MY LOFT IS NOT LOCATED WHERE IT SHOWS FLAGGED ON THE MAP. I AM NOT IN CHINATOWN. THIS IS AM TOLD IS A RANDOM CLOSE PROXIMITY SECURITY FEATURE OF THE SITE TO NOT GIVE EXACT LOCATION UNTIL A PERSON HAS BOOKED. I AM HOWEVER IN THE HEART OF THE SOUTH LOOP!!. A CONVENIENT WALK TO THE MUSEUMS, MC CORMICK PLACE AND THE MAJOR RED LINE STOP. CHINATOWN IS ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE TRAIN TRACKS. I AM EAST OF THE METRA AND RED LINE TRACKS.II DO HOWEVER LOVE CHINATOWN AND FREQUENT THERE OFTEN AS DO MY GUESTS. MY LOCATION IS QUIET UNLIKE THAT NEIGHBORHOOD.
I have a 2000+ square foot , 3 bedroom loft apartment in which I rent one private bedroom. (NOTE- I have recently started an ENTIRE LOFT rental and a second MASTER SUITE ROOM( See pictures ) rental .Penthouse loft and Master Suite are separate rentals in same unit ( private division and individual entry doors to each rental space ) These can be rented together as an emtire loft rental as well. Ask about these if interested. I haven't listed them as separate rentals yet. Price is same for either the penthouse room or the master suite at this time. If you want the entire loft that is at different rate.

The room is set up for a single professional or student only. Your room is located on the second floor(private staircase) of the apartment which is the actual penthouse room with a scenic lake view and skyline view of Trump tower, Water tower, McCormick Place and the Field Museum . Limited access to apartment kitchen for heating of meals and use of refrigerator and freezer. Fully stocked use of kitchen cupboards with dinnerware for serving your meals. The room comes with your own private bathroom and shower which is located on the first floor and includes all soaps and shampoo and shower gel.Fresh linens included and housekeeping done regular to present a clean fresh rental to each new guest. Room comes furnished with 100% cotton linens and towels. The room is decorated with mid century furniture, queen size bed, with your own 9 drawer dresser, desk, your own large in room closet with hangers, club chair, live plants and plenty of lights. My building is located one block away from the Chinatown redline( subway) which operates 24 hrs a day. There is also a bus stop in front of my building which takes you to the loop. I am 0.8 miles to Mc Cormick place/ 15 min walk. This includes all utilities, wifi and weekly housekeeping. I do own a well behaved Schnauzer(dog) and he sleeps in his kennel at night and he doesn't have access to the penthouse.
NOTE: I rarely allow for check-ins after 9 pm. Please check with me first. I do allow self check-ins on occasion with prior discussion.

  • My wife and I were here for ASCO and we had a wonderful stay at David's loft (penthouse room). It is clean, spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. It is about an 18 minute casual walk to McCormick convention center and a 3 minute walk to the subway and 5 minute walk to Chinatown. David was a gracious host!

  • I had a lovely week-long stay with David when I visited Chicago for a business trip - the apartment is less than 3 minutes from the local CTA station and very easy to find, check-in was smooth and easy and David was happy to offer any assistance when required. The views from the apartment are stunning, as is the apartment itself - I cannot recommend David enough, and I will certainly be staying if I have any future Chicago trips.

  • We enjoyed our stay in David's loft very much. Since he was away, he gave us clear instructions how to obtain the keys, enter and building and then the loft. The space is terrific--lots of windows with great views to the east. The loft is furnished eclectically with wonderful 50's lamps and other objects. Very comfortable bed in a large private upper floor space.
    The location is easy to access from the main part of the loop either by subway, bus or taxi. There are a number of very good restaurants in the area and we didn't even make it to nearby Chinatown. We would heartily recommend a stay with David.

  • I had a wonderful experience and stay at David's loft! I was in town for a conference at McCormick Place, and this was an ideal location, being a 10 minute walk away! The room itself was spacious, comfortable, and quiet. David was a great host and readily answered any basic questions I had about Chicago and getting around town! Free Wi-fi was available, and I had access to a private shower and bathroom. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting town!

  • Our stay with David was pleasant and his loft is very beautiful. He was accommodating of special requests and went out of his way to make our time in Chicago memorable and enjoyable, providing some unexpected special extras and a clean and well-decorated space for us to enjoy during our time in Chicago. David communicated well and always responded to questions quickly. I would be pleased to stay in David's loft again the next time we visit Chicago.

  • David's loft was marvelous. Great space, comfortable bed, very light when desired and by big city standards surprisingly quiet. I chose the location for the proximity to McCormick convention center which was perfect. Bonus when I discovered that 2 different buses just outside take you directly through the heart of the South loop up to the north loop with stops every where in between. (Especially Hackney's on dearborn) The ease of access to everywhere I needed to go makes this place a keeper.
    David himself was an excellent host, a gentleman and all around nice guy. He made sure that all accommodations were in place to the degree that I never asked for anything because it was already there.
    I highly recommend David's loft and will be returning myself for my next rip to Chicago... Convention or not!

  • My son and I had a fabulous stay at David’s place. First of all, David is such a kind and friendly person, a true gentleman. He was so accommodating about my checking in and out. He couldn’t have made it any easier. Also, even though I didn’t see him that often in the apartment, he was so quick to respond to my text messages whenever I needed anything. Secondly, his penthouse apartment is beautiful. We had a large room with two walls of windows looking out onto the Chicago skyline. We also had our own bathroom downstairs from our bedroom. Everything was clean and so nicely decorated with interesting objects and furniture and lots of well-maintained plants. David also allowed us to use his well-equipped kitchen; however, Chicago has so many good restaurants that we never did get around to cooking anything.

    One of the best features about David’s place was its location. It’s only one and a half blocks away from the Chinatown metro station. It was so nice at the end of a long day to have to walk only a short distance from the station to get back to the apartment. Also, Chinatown has several restaurants that stay open late so it was really easy to have a late meal and then be home in a matter of minutes. (While I was there the station was closed for repair so I had to take a shuttle to the next metro station. However, the Chinatown station will be up and running again this September (2013) so the apartment will be even more convenient to get to. You won’t have to take the shuttle; you’ll be able to ride the train directly to the station.)

    You absolutely will love staying at David’s place. It’s a great apartment and a great value, and, more importantly, you’ll meet a really kind and sweet person. Your stay will be one of the many highlights of your trip to Chicago, in my opinion one of the best cities in the United States.

  • It was amazing staying at David's. the place was clean, ordered, nice and cozy. David was very generous in advising us about the city and very thoughtful in his manners.
    The place is very near Chinatown, very well connected, and really quiet. The room is comfortable and nice.
    My boyfriend and I really enjoy our stay in Chicago. We recommend it completely.

  • I had the best time at David's place. He is a great host, willing to help with everything that you might need. We went to a conference at McCormick Convention Center and it was a 20 minutes walk from David's place. My friend and I felt very pampered by David. He brought flowers for our loft, the apartment and even the bathroom !!! I highly recommend his place for anyone going to Chicago. It has a bus near the house, the river taxi some 5 minutes walk, Chinatown in the back yard and a truly great host.

  • We loved staying in David's loft, beautifully decorated and centrally located to explore Chicago. Highly recommend!

About
Hi my name is David. I am a very self-motivated entrepreneur and a local Firefighter and a Certified Paramedic. I have been living in Chicago for over 3 yrs. and am originally from Wisconsin. I became acquainted with Chicago by my many visits here over the years. I am a socially progressive guy with an appetite for great restaurants and can share with you some of my favorites locally. I love collecting mid century antiques and have a green thumb which I have brought into the living space with some great indoor plants. I have a well behaved dog named " Guapo" , he is a standard Schnauzer.
