In the description below you'll find all the details about the place, the area, transportation and directions.
This is a great studio convertible in River North, on the 30th floor with views over downtown and all of west Chicago. The apartment also features a balcony. You'll be in the North part of downtown with everything close by. The neighborhood offers Magnificent Mile, great shopping malls, grocery stores, restaurants for every taste, Enotecas, Navy Pier, Museums and so much more within just a couple of blocks / short walk. Bus stop and El stops are both just outside the front door. All you need to bring is your suitcase and toothbrush. The apartment is spacious and comfortable. For staying in you can enjoy watching the very large Samsung Smart TV, which has a Blu-Ray player and 3D glasses. You can enjoy cable, or any of the apps such as Hulu, Netflix, Pandora... When you get in I'll be glad to make some recommendations for sites and places. Also, I have a cow (see picture).
Free street parking nearby! Amazing :)
I can always be reached on my mobile.
See more details about apartment and PARKING AND DIRECTIONS below. Before booking please make sure you review and understand checkout procedure. I have written details on directions from the airport as well as by car. Please do not hesitate to write and ask as many questions as you need.
From the Airport:
Take blue line (it is the only line from the airport) to Washington (41 min, 17 stops); walk one block to Lake (it's ok to ask anyone which way Lake is. Chicago was after all voted friendliest city in the country for the past two years); take red line towards Howard (3 min, 2 stops); get off at Chicago and walk to Dearborn and Chicago. The building looks triangular, so all you have to do is look up and around and you'll be able to spot it. It is called Asbury Plaza.
Off of I-90, take the exit for Ohio. Go straight and make a left at Dearborn. Drive four (4) blocks and there it is, on your right :)
Off of Lake Shore Drive, take the Chicago Street turn, not into the Lake, but into the city :) You'll need to drive to Clark, which is the next street after Dearborn, and loop around the block (Dearborn is a one way street going North).
In fact, CHECKOUT is super easy. just LEAVE THE KEY ON THE COUNTER IN THE APARTMENT and walk out. This is not a hotel and you cannot leave the key with anyone, not the doorman, not the office. I am usually a few minutes away, as in a different apartment in the same building.
The internet code is on the router and written on the refrigerator. The tv stand is on wheels and you can move it from the bottom to suit your viewing needs, both from the couch and from the bed. The gym and the laundromat are on the first floor, free and open 24 hours. The key fob will let you in. Please always make sure the key is with you AT ALL TIMES. There is no "unlocked" option to the apartment doors in this building. You will only need to use the key to unlock the door, never to lock it. If you get locked out and have to call maintenance (unless I'm available and close by), there is a $25 charge. If this happens I will need to deduct it from the deposit. The building has 24 hr door and maintenance services. The sheets and towels are a guest set and always fresh.
FREE Parking is about 6 blocks away. It is street parking. This is all the time, day and night. Just ask me and I will send you details or come show you once you are in the area. Free meter parking in front of the building, or around it, is from 12 am to 8 am seven days a week. Meter parking by the building is $4/ hour.
There is an attached garage to the building and the rates are as follows:

Great host, thanks Hanne. A really good central location. Lovely neighbourhood with excellent transport links and plenty of shops, restaurants and bars nearby. The apartment is clean and comfortable with super views from the balcony. Very safe apartment block and the doorman/doorwoman always friendly. Mike and I would definitely recommend Hanne's apartment for a Chicago stay.
High marks on location and view!
The reservation was canceled 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I would highly recommend Hanne's apartment to anyone that is looking for a clean and welcoming place to stay. The location is ideal for out of towners because it is central to all of the important sites to be seen. Also, it is within walking distance to great shopping, bars, and restaurants. She did a great job of answering questions about the area and she has a pulse for what is fun. Lastly, she did a great job of stocking the bar with great wine. This is offer you can't pass up. Two thumbs up...
Brilliant location, amazing view and great apartment.
Spent 3 nights at the place and loved it.
Although I could not meet Hanne, but she made sure that we were well received (even had a cheese platter waiting for us).
The place was clean and well maintained.
Board games and big a$$ TV were amazing.
I would definitely go there again.
We found Hanne's place to be a very special find!
It's fantastic location with free parking makes it an affordable getaway. All the downtown highlights are within walking distance.
Hanne's apartment is a large studio on the 30th floor with great views, full Kitchen and large bath. The building is nice with door security and a luggage cart available for use.
The bed is only a full size and the parking is a bit of a walk, but that was not an issue for us.
Hanne was very responsive to our questions and helpful with suggestions for sightseeing and restaurant recommendations.
We have used AirBnB all over the USA and this apartment exceeded our expectations, you won't be disappointed.
Fantastic location and better view. Hanne was great checking in with us to make sure we got in and to make sure we had no problems. Really love place and very lovely host. Thanks! Jess and Ben
Clean, quiet, comfortable apartment. Easy to coordinate with the host.
It was a pleasure staying at Hanne's and I would definitely stay there again.
Staying at Hanne's place made our trip all come together. Her place is super close to two train lines, restaurants, bars, and more. The apt instructions were easy and the place itself was adorable, comfortable and clean. Hanne was easy to communicate with and offered great advice on eateries close by. The next time we need a place in Chicago - that's our first call!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
