Michael's pad is super great and I'd strongly recommend it to anyone that wants a little piece of home just a couple of blocks walk to the Loop.
The condo itself has a nice street view, is very brightly lit with natural light, the kitchen is fully functional, nice to have a washer and dryer if needed. Michael was a great host, greeting us and checking in on us occasionally to answer questions and just make sure that everything is going alright.
On top of that, the location is really great. 2-3 short blocks walk to the El, two blocks to Sear's Tower, maybe 15 minutes walk to the Art Institute. The only short coming I'd say is that at night it's a pretty desolate. There is a 7-11 downstairs for snacks and there are some awesome delivery food options that support all the condos in the area, but to eat out at night, you're going to need to travel a little.
I would recommend this place to anyone who is traveling to Chicago and planning on spending time downtown, whether for fun (like we did) or for work. It's just great!
Michael is the best host in the world ! Our flight landed with a big delay, and we arrived to the Michael house in the midnight ! , He waited for us ! with the fridge full of a wellcome package of beers ! .
The apartment is located in a very comfortable area...and the apartment is fantastic ...sweet and lovely..
How I am not going to love Chicago ! ?
From the moment we met Michael, he made us feel right at home in his lovely loft. The loft is in a central location, well-decorated, family friendly (which was a highlight for us traveling with our 5-month old son), and overall very comfortable. The restaurant recommendations, bagels, local brews and coffee were nice added touches. Michael also made himself available to us for any questions we had without being over imposing. Thanks so much for being so accommodating and hospitable, Michael!
It's a beautiful space in a great location. There was tourist information available on the counter, bagels in the fridge and a fully equipped and lovely kitchen, two nice bathrooms, comfortable couch, etc.. Be aware, though, that there isn't any privacy for sleeping and unless it's a couple with small children, there aren't comfortable accommodations for anyone (unless you are comfortable on an air mattress) except the master bedroom. If you have small children, however, and a couple, it would be ideal! And believe Michael when he mentions dog allergies. My daughter had asthma while we were there from the dog who wasn't present.
Michael was a great host. He made sure we had everything we needed, and that all our questions were answered. The condo is really nice, and very well located with easy access to everything. Thanks!
Gracious hosts in a perfect location, Michael's hospitality was much appreciated! His notebook of restaurant tips and area gems was helpful and considered. Thanks! Will look you back up next time we're in Chicago.
We had a wonderful stay at Michael's Loft! Michael was a great host! He is a great resource for restaurant suggestions. He even left us bagels and beer in the fridge. Much appreciated!
The 2 bedroom, 2 bath loft comfortably accommodated 4 of us. It was very clean and conveniently located near attractions (15 min. walk to the Art Institute museum/Millennium Park) and the commute to/from O'Hare was very simple (40 min on Blue L line and a short walk). My brother & sister drove from St. Louis to join us at the loft. The parking space was an added bonus. Lots of eateries close by. Greek town is down the street and a 7-11 is next door for any last minute needs.
We HIGHLY recommend staying here!
This place is excellent. Michael is a great host. The loft is well decorated and very comfortable. The location is quite convenient. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a spot near downtown Chicago.
Michael and his charming family were great hosts.
We had very good communication and they left the flat very, very clean.
Thank you Michael and good trip !
I highly recommend
Great! The boys LOVED it because of the beaches and our hotel had a pool. They got tired of driving so we just went to Monte Carlo and then explored Nice for 2 days.
Your flat was perfect for us, and you were a great host. Thanks for everything!
Michael and friends were wonderful guests. They were courteous and clean and treated the house as if it were their own. I would have them back anytime.
I have been a friend and colleague to Michael for several years and we have travelled together for business. No one I know is as passionate about travelling or new experiences, and I any travel or culinary recommendation is so trusted it immediately jumps to the top of my list.
Michael is one of my most-travelled friends and knows exactly what you need when visiting a far away city (as well as countryside or jungle, he has been everywhere). When travelling via Airbnb, I would hope my host would be as amazingly kind, hospitable and dependable as Michael is.
