Loft was great as was Bryan. Bryan was an awesome host and this was a great place to stay. Quick walk to the El and cheap cab from the city when we needed to do that. Chicago is a great town we had a blast!!
Bryan was super helpful and a great host! I'm a Chicago native who had to go to a conference near McCormick Place with family and friends close by, so not all of his pointers were super relevant for me, but he seems super knowledgeable about the neighborhood and things to do around town.
The loft was close enough to walk to McCormick place (I live in SF now so I walk everywhere), but you won't find most people walking; there are plenty of options for public transit otherwise.
One thing to consider if you're not a local is that area though up and coming and significantly gentrified area (at least since the last time I've spent much time in Chicago), it is a little bit sketch especially at night. I'm a city smart gal and lived in STL without getting mugged, but even I was a bit scared at night. Use a cab or uber if it's late to keep yourself safe. Walking during the day is probably okay.
The loft was otherwise beautiful, the accommodations fantastic, and the free OJ and bananas up top! Bryan really is fantastic!
We had a great time at the loft! Bryan and Todd were very friendly and welcoming. A very cool neighbourhood, and Bryan's restaurant recommendations were perfect for us. We used the bike share program around the corner and the El easily. Clean and comfortable, with everything you think you'd need. The place is beautiful as shown in the photos. Would recommend to everyone.
The loft is exactly as pictured; if not more amazing! Bryan was the perfect host - he was so helpful, welcoming, and also understanding when we were late arriving after getting stuck in traffic. We also had a problem with the toilet during our stay and he was out within less than a hour to fix it. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the loft to anyone! Thanks so much Bryan :)
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful trip to Chicago at Bryan's loft. Bryan was the ideal host; meeting us at the loft and giving us a great run through of the loft, best ways to get around the city and great suggestions for food and entertainment. The loft was beautiful, clean and close to public transportation. I would recommend staying at Bryan's loft to anyone going to visit Chicago.
Bryan's place is fantastic. This is a recently renovated (2003) building with all the features - full kitchen, bathroom with jetted tub, and modern fixtures throughout.
Moreover, this is prime location - although the surrounding blocks convey a very 'industrial' feel, heading east you have immediate access to Chinatown, and within 2 blocks you have immediate access to the red line train and the 62 bus, both of which can easily link you to essentially anywhere in the city. Overall, this is an outstanding alternative to paying for the overpriced hotels near the McCormick Place Convention Center, which is easily accessible by bus or on foot. I will definitely look up Bryan next time I am in Chicago on business travel -
Bryan was a wonderful host! He was very helpful with any questions we had and was very prompt in his replies. The loft was everything me and my boyfriend expected. We felt very comfortable and it made our stay in Chicago very enjoyable. For our first Airbnb experience, we definitely felt like Bryan made sure we had everything we needed. We will be using Airbnb again. Thanks Bryan!
Bryan was an awesome host. Very nice, easy to work with and flexible. He prepared a small flip book with information about the loft, the surrounding area, and a lot of recommendations for good food. Bryan also checked in to see how things were going and if there was anything we needed. The loft itself was kept up very nicely and felt like a home away from home. Not too far from the Red Line, and just a few stops away from the Loop. Awesome guy, and would 100% recommend staying at his loft!
This was my first experience using airbnb. I was hesitant but am glad I tried it out. Bryan was a great host. He met me when i arrived and showed me everything and took the time to answer my questions. He was even easy to get a hold of during my trip. The apartment was perfect. I hate staying in hotel rooms because they are so small. Bryan's apartment felt like being at home. The commute to Mccormick place was the best. I walked 1 block and took a bus straight there. Just remember to keep plenty of quarters because the bus driver never has change. The red line was about a 10 minute walk, so it was easy to get around the city. I would recommend Bryan's place to anyone else considering it.
Bryan's place was great! Everything about it from the mattress to the shower was cozy and comfy and luxurious. The space is basically your own private floor with a private bathroom, kitchen, and television, which is really nice. Bryan knows the neighborhood well, and is ready with tons of restaurant suggestions in the neighborhood and elsewhere. The neighborhood is really safe, cute and residential. It's within walking distance of the Brown Line L to downtown Chicago, and the Western and Damen buses that will take you to fun, trendy neighborhoods. I highly recommend Bryan's place!
