James was a great host! He was very flexible with my arrival and met me to show me around the place and ensure I was all set. He had everything I needed for my stay, which I really appreciated.
The apartment was just like the pictures showed and it's in a great part of Chicago. I would definitely look to stay there again.
James was an amazing host! The apartment was very cozy and I felt at home. Everything that was perfect. He was very helpful in recommending great restaurants and entertainment. Looking forward to my next trip to Chicago as I will definitely be staying here.
Perfect apartment in a perfect location. James was very responsive and his one bedroom is exactly as described. Small patio overlooking the city was perfect in the AM. You can walk to a ton if sites/activities/restaurants and bars. I would definitely stay again!
The place was beautiful and in a great location.
James was an amazing host. He was waiting for us at the apartment to show us the amenities and was very responsive. Would love to come back!
James was great -- he met me at the unit to hand over the keys and give me a tour even though my flight got in close to midnight. He also had towels and toiletries for my use, and even left a hair dryer out for my wife! The unit is nicely decorated. The building is modern and has some great amenities like a lap pool. Two things to note about the unit: (1) one of the regular occupants is a pug, and (2) the building is on a fire route and there's a fire station very close by, which may bother light sleepers (even being on the 26th floor with dual paned glass, the sirens are pretty piercing). It took me a couple of nights to get used to it. Overall, a good stay.
