Ideal location for those attending conferences in the Loop, shows in the Downtown Theater District, or simply sight seeing. Within a 2 block radius of Millennium Park, Palmer House Hilton, Macy's (Marshall Field's), Chicago Cultural Center, Gene Siskel Film Institute, Art Institute of Chicago, tons of shopping, and iconic restaurants. Reach most major attractions with only a quick walk or short bus/train ride. Extremely convenient location with access to all train lines. Catch the Blue Line from inside O'Hare or the Orange Line from inside Midway directly here.
The 11ft by 10ft room has a full sized bed with 4 drawers built in, a small desk with an office chair, and a bench for your suitcase. A hook rail with 5 tri-hooks to hang up clothes is in the room, but the closet across the hallway provides additional space if needed. I want to clarify what I mean by loft style bedroom. It is a completely private bedroom with french doors on one wall and 3/4th wall with sliding windows to allow sunlight in on the other. The mattress is a 12" spring with 2" 5.5 memory foam top. Clean, fresh high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, Siberian 600 fill down comforter, and duvet will be provided as well as fresh towels. Feel free to grab a bowl of cereal, fry a couple eggs, or toast some toast before heading out. We have a keurig coffee maker too to help you get that quick caffeine fix in the morning.
My girlfriend and I live in this 1200 sqft, two bedroom, 1 bath apartment, beautifully decorated with natural stone floors and custom furniture locally crafted from reclaimed wood. The entire unit has been fitted with half inch, double glazed soundproof windows over double pane windows with a 6" air insulation barrier, so you can be close to the hustle and bustle of downtown, but not hear it. Besides the aesthetics, location, and cleanliness of the apartment, a huge positive of this arrangement is that you get to hang out with us and learn where all the foodies are eating, the best places to grab a cocktail, and simply what makes Chicago a great city to be in.
Since I listed my girlfriend and myself as positives, I should probably talk about us a little. I'm an MD/PhD student with a flexible schedule. If I'm available, I'd be more than happy to stop at one of my favorite local restuarants, take you to the art institute or field museum as a guests with my membership, or simply point out some great places to check out during your time in Chicago. My girlfriend is an executive assistant and generally works from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., so we ask that all guests respect her sleeping schedule by not making excessive noise after 11 p.m. on week days. That being said, we are extremely welcoming, accommodating, and easy to get along with. So feel free to stream Netflix or play Wii sports on our 60" plasma TV late into the night, just please keep the surround sound system at a reasonable level during the week.
We have a well stocked kitchen and you're welcome to use it. We just ask that you leave the place as you found it. If I'm cooking and you're hungry, let me know. I love to cook and, chances are, wouldn't mind doubling the recipe. There's an in unit washer/dryer, ironing board and iron that you are welcome to use; we only ask that you treat it with respect. I'm into video games and have a home theater PC hooked up to an entertainment center. Feel free to play any of the games or use the computer to check your email, print maps, boarding passes, etc.
We have had such amazing experiences meeting people from all over the world and making new friends in the process. We ask our guests to hang a flag pin (provided) on their home town to keep track of the countries represented. We have had visitors from 5 continents representing over 20 countries. We would like to eventually see our map of visitors filled with pin flags in every nation. To achieve this goal, we are currently offering a 100% discount to guests that can prove they were born in Antartica.
Thanks Peter and Krista for helping to make our trip to Chicago so special!
The apartment is very conveniently located (no more than a two block walk to any subway line) and we were able to walk to many of the major tourist attractions in Chicago. The bed is comfy, the place is clean, and Zach is already missing the double shower heads.
We appreciated how knowledgeable you both were in terms of things to do and how to get around Chicago as well as just being down to chat with us while we were in the apartment.
I highly recommend staying with Peter and Krista when visiting Chicago, the location and the company will not disappoint!
Peter and Krista are great hosts and their place is in a fantastic location. I came for a conference being held at the Palmer House and was so grateful to be staying down the street. Their place is clean, quiet, convenient, and much better than a hotel. I highly recommend the Peter and Krista's place!
Great location and the greatest hosts! Peter & Krista are making sure that you know everything about Chicago and its best spots! The location can not be better than this I suppose.
This was my first airbnb experience and thanks to Peter and Krista it was a great one! They are wonderful hosts, very friendly and helpful. The apartment is really nice, too, and its location is the best!!!!!!!! So close to everything. I also liked the guestbook with tips from former guests and the world map with the flag pins of all the other visitors. It's such a good place to stay in Chicago – highly recommended!
Extremely personable and friendly hosts. Thanks for the hospitable stay! The BEST location in Chicago.
Peter and Krista were the perfect hosts! I felt right at home, and even though I had lived in Illinois before, I discovered so many cool places in Chicago from them! They opened their home to me in the sub-zero Windy City weather, and we had fun watching the Olympics together. The apartment is clean, spacious and located right on the Loop (central train area in Chicago) --- right by Michigan Ave. - what more could one want on a weekend trip to Chicago??? Peter and Krista respect your private space but are always happy to hang out - it made my stay extra special.
Peter and Krista were super friendly and always willing to help us during our stay. The room is very clean, cosy and comfortable (the bed is awesome), and the apartment is really nice. Great location, close to everything. Highly recommended.
Really great place to stay to do business in Chicago. Close to everything and Peter and Krista are excellent hosts. They are very knowledgeable about Chicago. And lovely people
Peter and Krista were great. Very low key and no uncomfortable feeling from staying in someone's home while they are also there. The bedroom is nice and the bed is big and comfotable. They said, "Help yourself to whatever's in the fridge" and so I did. The location was perfect. Next time I'm in Chicago, I will first see if they are available. No problems....
It's really a great (email hidden)ose to the park and macy's store.Two blocks to blue line.The room is very clean.
