I am a student of the arts and sciences but also an artist and scientist!
The location of the apartment was so close to everything; great restaurants, shops & night clubs. Everything you need was all in walking distance. The view from the apartment, whether it was day or night was breathtaking!
Victor was a great host; made me very comfortable! Definitely staying there again if I do come back.
I stayed at this glorious condo while visiting chicago on business. Victor was a gracious host and the condo had all the comforts of home. The view and location can't be beat, I could sit and look out the window all day if only I didn't have to work. I highly recommend this unit if visiting the city.
The location is perfect who wants visit Chicago.
The heading for Victor's condo is absolutely true-"Come for the comfort, stay for the view!" We enjoyed our stay at 345 LaSalle immensely. The building is handsome, the location is ideal, Victor is very very helpful from the first contact to the last and the condo is attractive and comfortable in every way.
Pro: The location of this is perfect. there is an amazing steakhouse not a three minute walk from the apartment and my god the view is gorgeous, i spent my late nights sitting on the couch with some wine, cheese and could just talk with my girlfriend, it was a great experience, there is everything right there at the tip of your fingertips that you need a cvs that carries wine next door and if you want some famous deep dish pizza its a 5 min walk. i would stay there again!!
Con: The security there gave us a hard time walking in occasionally but nothing that wasn't cleared up within a minute or two (it was nice knowing though that we were safe and that no one could just walk in)
Great location, couldn't have asked for anything better.
Great location that works well for visiting downtown
Victor's place is perfect for those looking for a clean and convenient home base from which to explore Chicago. I walked to The Contemporary Museum of Art, Whole Foods, bars etc. everything is close by if you can get out of the comfy window side chair surrounded by the fantastic view long enough to leave the condo. I wish I could post the photos I took of the lovely Chicago skyline from the couch.
On a practical side everything was in working order nicely stocked with towels fresh from the dryer :). The kitchen was perfect for my needs and offered me a place to cook and enjoy staying in during my week long stay. Everything was clean and user friendly.
Victor was incredibly gracious about accommodating my arrival schedule. But even better than that, he is great fun to talk to and recommended some places nearby which ended up being some new Chicago favorites.
Victor was very easy to communicate with and put us at ease when we were a bit nervous about the whole process. He responded promptly to questions beforehand and while we were there. The location was absolutely perfect, super close to the train stations and lots of great places to eat and drink within blocks.
I would say the only downsides I would mention was the overall cleanliness and kitchen supplies. When we walked in, the first thing we noticed was that there was debris all over the carpet. We lived with it, but it was a bit disconcerting. The kitchen also had a very "sticky" feel to it and when we went to cook, we found many of the pots unusable (teflon coating peeling). Both of these issues were very minor and for the ease of location and Victor's friendliness, these were easily overlooked! Everything else was clean and we were probably just being overly picky in expecting things to be up to hotel standards :)
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend staying at his place for the location and money saved!!
Very nice condo. Fantastic view! Victor (host) was very accommodating to all of our needs. Victor was very helpful guiding us into the the city & was very responsive to all of our calls when we had any questions. Highly recommend this listing. Great value for the location, parking, security & view.
