After traveling and living all across the United States; I can say without hesitation that Chicago is by far America's greatest city. I am fortunate to live right in the heart of Downtown Chicago steps away from Millennium Park, Navy Pier, The Mag Mile and the scenic Lakefront. Right outside my door is every "L" line to get to all the various Chicago neighborhoods and enjoy all the restaurants, bars, events, and shops that they have to offer. Chicago has everything a vacationer could want; amazing landscape, architecture, culture, food, nightlife and personal connection. Anyone visiting Chicago will not leave disappointed.
As a host, you can expect a comfortable, relaxing, easy-going stay when visiting. Traveling can be exhausting; as I have found out over the course of the past few years for work and pleasure. I always want to travel and feel at home without the sterile feel of hotels as I am sure most would want as well.
