We had a great time staying at Phil’s place! Coming in from Midway via the CTA was a breeze, even having to transfer from one line to the next. We went the James Bond route and with all the info that Phil provided us before-hand, we walked in there as if we knew the place inside-out!
His place had all the things we needed and felt like home. It was a welcome sight after long days exploring Chicago and great to just relax in their big comfy couch and watching the world go by on their balcony.
Phil is very easy to reach and is very prompt with his responses while addressing any concerns you may have. I highly recommend him as a host no matter where you’re coming from and no matter where he may be.
My boyfriend and I just returned from a wonderful three days in Chicago! Our trip could not have gone better, in large part due to Phil's hospitality and great apartment!
As someone who takes the T regularly in Boston (in fact, I'm on it right now), I cannot emphasize enough how conveniently located Phil's apartment is to the L. The Clinton stop on the blue line is right across the street! We were able to travel all over the city quickly. You can even take the train straight to O'Hare without transferring!
Everything else about Phil's apartment was just what we needed as well. It is spotless and comes complete with maps, a Keurig, and a really comfortable bed (Tempur-Pedic)! By the way, I did the James Bond method and did not have any trouble at all. It was quick and easy, and Phil's meticulous house tutorial really helped out. As AirBNB rookies, we were very grateful for the help.
The last time we visited Chicago a few years ago, we stayed near the airport to save money, which made it hard to spend very much time in the city. THERE IS A BETTER WAY, AND PHIL'S APARTMENT IS IT! Do yourself a favor and stay here. It really is a deal that can't be beat.
We stayed two nights at Phil's place and we really enjoyed it. It is steps away from the metro and it was easy to hail a cab. Phil's condo is very clean and spacious. Would highly recommend!!
Very nice well appointed and spacious apartment for solo or couple. It was very close to the loop and center of town although the surroundings for that specific block look very dreary. The subway is right outside the door of the condo block so no need to traverse the area. The James Bond option worked without a problem - it felt a bit strange but ok...The host was very helpful on the phone and prompt to respond.
Having a washing machine and drier really helped with the entire trip.
Missing- an iron, an extra blanket and a pot and frying pan.
Overall- quite satisfactory and recommendable!!
Gorgeous condo, literally STEPS from the subway. Awesome location, comfortable home, and immaculately clean! Philip's place is great, and he was very attentive and helpful! Recommend it!
This apartment is a great place to stay when you're in Chicago. Conveniently located steps to the El's blueline, it was an ideal base out of which to explore all areas of the city. The apartment was clean, spacious, had a very comfy bed and everything you would need (even laundry!).
Phil, our host, was friendly and easy to deal with and provided meticulous instructions of all the intricacies of the apartment and building, which made everything very easy. An overall great experience, would highly recommend to anyone visiting the city.
Phil's apartment in Chicago was excellent; it was literally 2 steps away from the subway station, and the check in process was MUCH easier than I thought ( I did the James Bond option). The apartment had everything! We were craving for tea because we arrived very late at night, and guess what? Phil has it right in the pantry. Having laundry in the apartment is also a great bonus, especially for people on a long trip! Overall, it was a great experience! Thanks again for letting us stay at your place Phil!
Philip was an excellent host and took pain to explain the house rules especially the James Bond option a number of times to me with the fact it took only a few minutes to check in to his apartment. It was one hell of an amazing experience going through the instructions from the time I entered the 500 building till I entered the alarm code after getting in to his apartment. I'd call it a mini "Crystal Maze" game. :) On opening the balcony door, lo! an amazing view of the Willis Tower indeed. We could see flashes from people's cameras on the Skydeck at night right from the apartment! It is that close. Phil's place is the best bet if you want to save some money. This is the cheapest accommodation one would get right in the middle of downtown Chicago. The Greyhound bus stop is right opposite the apartment as well.
I enjoyed my stay at the apartment and was surprised at how quiet it is yet close to downtown. I was able to locate it easily by train and get situated with Philip's very thorough instructions. The apartment is modern and well equipped and I felt very comfortable. It was nice to have air conditioning on some very hot days. Philip was always available for communication and guided me to the area when I arrived. A suggestion I would make to future guests who are without a car; bring the basic foods like milk, bread, etc. as the only grocery store within walking distance if you are arriving in the evening is a 7-11. Once I had my groceries, I was able to navigate Chicago easily from this location and really enjoyed my stay there. Thank you Philip
The place was clean and beautiful. We had everything we needed and more. The host Phillip was great, had a friend meet us with our keys and give us a tour of the place when we got there. The was a paper tutorial was a great tool to everything we needed and walked us through where things were in and outside the Condo. We went for the Comic Convention and the Blue Line which goes to the Rosemont Convention center one right outside the door. I hope we stay there next year. Best out of town experience I have had when it came to accommodations. I highly recommend a stay here if ever in Chicago.
