My host quickly responded not only to my initial request to book her home, but to all my questions as well. This was my first experience using Airbnb, so I probably had a few more questions than most, but she was very patient and helpful.
Mari Ann was a wonderful host, very friendly and helpful. She couldn't have made our stay any more smooth. The apartment was absolutely stunning and it couldn't be more centrally located, close to restaurants, shopping, the beautiful river walk and only a short walk to attractions. The architecture tours on the river are only a few minutes walk away. The train station is also only a few minutes walk where you can catch the train out to Oak Park to see the Frank Loyd Wright neighbourhood. We would definitely stay again when visiting Chicago.
I had many choices for my stay in Chicago. I am a seasoned traveler who looks closely for other seasoned travelers to write reviews.
There were many luxurious accommodations available in this price range, nothing nearly as special as her condo. She took special care to make me feel at home. It was much better than staying at a 5 star, luxury suite.
I was drawn to the reviews that were written about her property. The setting was lovely, the person renting to me was a lovely person. The reviews were accurate.
Mari Ann is a perfect host.
She was there for me when I needed extra days, instructions, tips and advice about the city. She answered my texts in moments after receiving them. She has taken it upon herself to make her tenant comfortable and secure. You feel she cares about your experience.
There is no doubt your stay in Chicago will be extraordinary if you stay with Mari Ann.

I first want to thank Mary Ann for taking my booking on Short Notice and making my arrangements with such great ease. The unit was immaculate and the view is to die for. The building offers 5star amenities which are second to none. I can't wait to come back to Chicago and when I do I will be choosing this unit as my 1st Choice.
My daughter and I stayed at Mari Ann's apartment for about a week and a half, it has the most breath taking view of the lake and Chicago!! It was exactly as pictured! It really does take your breath away when you look out those windows. It's also pretty spectacular to see the architecture of the buildings from up above looking down, you don't often have that opportunity!
We enjoyed our stay, it was my first time using airbnb, so I was a little nervous,You know how they say if it seems too good to be true then it probably isn't? Wrong!! It really was amazing and the hand off of keys and information really went smoothly!
Mari Ann greeted us and gave us a tour of the building and it's amenities and she was always reachable by text or phone! I think I was just getting the hang of how everything worked and what was available at the spa and the pool area, but I had to come down out of the ivory tower( or should I say glass and steel) and go back to reality! It was a really fun place to stay, right in the middle of all the happenings!
We were there in March so it was cold , but I imagine it must be amazing to be there when it is a bit warmer!! we had a great time, we loved the doormen, they were so terrific and helpful when we came back from shopping with many American Girl bags!! People made us feel very much at home!! Personally I think the city of Chicago has some of the nicest most welcoming people I have ever met!! It was a really fun week! I wouldn't hesitate to stay with Mari Ann again!!
Spacious, elegant one bedroom. amazing views both in the living room and bedroom. The tower amenities made it a real five star experience. MariAnn was friendly and flexible for late check out. Definitly a WONDERFULL experience.
I can Honestly say staying at Mari Ann's condo was the best decision I have ever made when it comes to accommodations. I have stayed at over 20 hotels in the city and consider going to different hotels in Chicago and checking them out a hobby of mine. My favorites in Chicago are the Four Seasons and the Drake and the Park Hyatt. Mari Ann's condo at the Trump blows those 3 places out of the park! I was recovering from 2 surgeries and I knew that I wanted a place that I could really enjoy because I knew that I was going to be staying in a lot. I stayed at the condo for 4 days and enjoyed every second!
Mari Ann is an amazing host. I sent her about 10 txt messages asking her questions through out my stay and she answered all of them promptly and respectfully. She also offered to go to the grocery store for me (the Four Seasons won't do that for you!). It was so nice to open the fridge when I got there and have everything I liked already in there.
The Trump itself is a GREAT building. It has what a lot of hotels in the city are lacking and it's called CLASS. All the doormen and everyone at the pool and Spa were very kind. One Man working the desk at the spa made me a cup of coffee free of charge because I didn't know at the time that they only have complimentary coffee sitting out till noon. As you can imagine the views from every window are superb. Also spent a lot of time wearing the very comfy Trump robe that's complimentary with the condo. Countless hours were spent sitting by the pool in the comfy robe with a bottle of wine looking at the amazing river view.
As far as food goes I went to there restaurant at the Trump called 16. I had heard great things about it and it really lived up to its reputation. I went for breakfast and wound up going there again for breakfast the following day because I was so pleased. If you go, get the Crab omelet. Room service was great as well. I was a little bummed that I couldn't get a mixed drink but I guess there is legal reasons why you can't get mixed drinks through room service on the residences side. That was fine because the lady taking my room service order recommended a bottle of wine for me and it was fantastic.
I'm a Real Estate Broker so I'm really glad I got the chance to stay in this Beautiful Building. I plan on moving my work to the city in the next couple years. I will be able to tell my clients first hand what a WONDERFUL experience I had . It's a toss up between which is better, your host Mari Ann or the Condo?
Only one word...AMAZING!!!!! What you see is what you get with this stunning "Sky Pad" Feel what it's like to experience the most unbelievable views of Chicago and the opulence of upmost luxury of Trump Tower. The space is warm and inviting with all the amenities of a 5 Star Hotel but with the coziness of a home away from home.
The best part? Mari Ann! She is an incredible host and went above and beyond the call of duty. I had a "glitch" in my original plans prior to my check in and she really stepped up to assist. The unit is exactly what the photos show. I know?! Too good to be true? NO!!!! Beyond expectation.
Run don't walk and book this unit! Best of both worlds a warm and wonderful Host with Mari Ann AND best place to stay in the city of Chicago and beyond!
The apartment is every bit as spectacular as the pictures make it look. We'll miss waking up to breathtaking city views. The bed was Goldilocks comfortable (not too hard, not too soft) and all the other appointments and appliances are what you'd expect of a luxury condo. (The Jacuzzi tub was bit hit with us.) We even had a fair bit of closet space for our week's stay, which was much appreciated. MariAnn was friendly, flexible, and easy to communicate with. She was the perfect host for our first AirB&B experience.
