The Space

This is my largest private bedroom. With a big, comfy full bed, futon pad and single bed and a 47"LCD wall-mounted 1080p HDTV. Sorry, no cable, but I do offer a Xbox 360(1ctrlr) for your DVD viewing or video gaming pleasure*.

Quaint neighborhood right outside of busy downtown with all the entertainment you need within walking distance. Directly down the street from Navy Pier on Grand Ave. A few blocks from Harpo studios, Bottom Lounge music venue and United Center. Free wifi, and a rare find in Chicago - free street parking!(when available, which is usually often.)

More about the space and the area:
A converted storefront, Blush Lounge is located in the west loop area, in one of the most entertaining neighborhoods in Chicago, close to all the sights, where there is always something to do.

~Entertainment~
Within walking distance of Grandbar which is a great lounge, Output, Beauty Bar, Mahoneys Irish Pub, Clutch, Twisted Spoke and Union Park which is host to many different music festivals and events including Pitchfork and North Coast. Some of the best shows are at one of the best venues in venues in the city, the Bottom Lounge. Transit, the 2 floor night club is a couple blocks away and also The Mid, Red Kiva, Crocodile, Funky Buddha, Debonair, EvilOlive, Market are all about a 5 minute cab ride away; as well as the United Center which is just down the street. Centrally located between little Italy, Ukrainian Village, Greek Town Wicker Park, and 5 minutes to the loop. Less than a 10 minute cab to the Hancock center and the Willis(Sears) Tower and Mag-mile.

~Food~
The pubs around here are known for their great food specials but for more family oriented environments there is the Breakfast Club is located directly behind us. They are said to have chicago's #1 rated french toast. There is Coalfire, Chicago's best thin crust pizza. Oggi's trattoria, Kai Sushi, Bella Notte and Burger Baron are all next door. If you must, they just opened a new Mcdonalds down the street. We also have D'amatos Bakery, the best bread baked fresh daily for a great sandwich along with other Italian pastries. If you plan to stay in for the night we have a great wine store across the street with select liquor and beer. There is also Green Grocer across the street for all your grocery needs.
For the coffee lovers: Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts and a local shop called Sip are all within a block or two.

~Transportation~
The Grand bus stop is directly in front of our place as well as cabs, Close to the expressway, 2 blue line subway stops, making it easy to get from/to the airport, EL lines, and other public transportation connections. Metra Station a half mile up the road, for north and south bound suburban trains so you can easily explore this amazing city.

  • Tracy was great. Easily the nicest person in Chicago. Great face for the city, and totally accommodating.

    I look forward to returning to Chicago, and will definitely be in touch with Tracy when I do.

    Thanks again!

  • A Really good place. Near to the downtown, close to the bus line which bring you to the downtown. Tracy was very helpful with us. Definitely recommended.

  • I needed last minute accommodations and Tracy got me into her place quickly and efficiently. She was really down to earth and helpful. She provided me with a few items I needed and was very respectful of my space. The area is fantastic. There is a very cute, quiet cafe across the street, which was great for reading and working.

  • it´s a ver cozy room where you can relax 100% after enjoying the city, which is fairly near, or running the marathon :)

  • The room is exactly as it looks in the picture... however the website fails to mention that this is a group house. We had to walk through a room with 3 futons of people and their belongings, before reaching our bedroom. The bathroom was shared with those 3 other people, and is filthy dirty. Also, there is not a lock on the bedroom, so other guests had full access to our belongings. Then to add insult to injury, there was not a top sheet on the bed, and who knows when the last time the comforter was washed. I wish Tracy and the website had been more honest about the situation because if so, I never would have stayed there. Furthermore, it cost me $169 for the night, which seemed rediculously high for a group house. I shared my thoughts with Tracy and her response was that "most people are understanding" and unfortunately she didn't offer any remedies. Cleanliness and security are not things I like to compromise, therefore making it hard to be "understanding".
