The property is exactly as it is described and in an incredible location. The penthouse was spotless. Getting in and out with a code as opposed to a key is genius - everyone should do this. Casey was great to work with. While we were just here as a family of 4 - the property would be great for a girls getaway - a bachelor or couples retreat. Being in old town - you are outside of the regular tourist traffic and in with the natives - but you are close enough to walk everywhere. Loved it.
Amazing location, beautiful penthouse, skyline view on roof, very accommodating host
Place was awesome great location Casey gave us all the information we needed.
We stayed here for a girls weekend (there were 7 of us), and loved the space! It looked just like the pictures - extremely spacious, the kitchen was beautiful and fully stocked with anything needed, the beds were comfy, and the master bath was beautiful. The roof deck had a nice view of the city. It's in a wonderful neighborhood - close to the lake, shopping, restaurants, and bars. Very fun experience!
Beautiful place. Great location. Loved the pool table. Nice view from the roof. A very enjoyable weekend stay.
Neighborhood was beautiful, the loft was fantastic and the host was great. Easily one of the best experiences I've had. Thanks for the great time.
Wow. What an incredible space. The enormous loft is an incredible space for our trip to Chicago. There were four of us and the place was immaculate, the located great and the checkin process very easy. Michael was in great communication with us and we had a wonderful time. Would highly recommend this place to others.
