Teacher and writer, have very much enjoyed meeting the travelers I have hosted.
This was my first airbnb experience and it COULD HAVE gone very badly. You see, I went to Chicago without actually planning my 3-day trip... and I went solo - usually people have a partner[s] in crime, and maybe flip through a guidebook, but who has time - really. Anyway, Emily's apartment is absolutely lovely, clean and spacious with tons of books and 2 potential best friends / cuddle buddies, i mean cats . It's truly the best place to call home for any amount of time. And that's not even factoring in your gracious host who is the perfect amount of helpful & friendly (great communication, and even sent exact directions for getting from Ohare to her building), yet capable of understanding privacy and downtime. I was also lucky in that Emily had some free time and was sweet enough to join me for a mini-tour of dive bars in logan square one night - so I can attest to her being a stand-up host as well as drinking buddy. Staying with Emily was definitely a great choice, and made my stay in Chicago way more enjoyable than it might've been due to my lack of planning. If she's still hosting - I'd gladly come back & would definitely recommend this as your place to stay as well.
I have zero complaints. Emily was very communicative, and her apartment is very close to the Blue Line (which is very convenient for where I needed to get to for work). She was friendly, helpful and quiet as a mouse. The room was warm and comfortable and I felt like the neighborhood was really quiet (and this coming from someone who also lives in a busy city). Really sweet cat too :)
Thanks for the great stay. You place was just what we needed. It was awesome that it was so close to the "L" and good coffee shops and other eateries. Thanks for being laid back and cool with our weird schedule while we were in Chicago. Your cats were awesome too. We know where we are staying the next time we come back to Chicago.
Emily is a kind and helpful host who was a pleasure to converse with. The place itself is nothing fancy, but she makes the most of it and keeps it very clean.
I enjoyed staying at Emily's place in Logan Square. Everything was easy to find, clean, and well laid out. Her cats were also nice to come home to after a long day in Chicago. Finally, the place was an easy walk to the train station in Logan Square, and convenient to get to downtown and other locations.
I stay with Emily was fantastic.
She was extremely helpful, and she has a great, tidy apartment in Logan Square.And her place were just perfect!
she was a lovely hostess.
Staying with Emily was lovely indeed! She was a great hostess and her apartment was perfect for our 3-night stay in Chicago. Close to the Blue line, the Sunday farmer's market, and Lula Cafe. Thanks for your great hospitality, Emily!
Emily was great! She was very friendly and helpful and made us coffee in the morning! The room is very private, her house is clean, and she lives a stones throw from the Blue Line and some really good places to eat/get coffee.
My stay with Emily was fantastic. She was extremely helpful, and she has a great, tidy apartment in Logan Square. The neighborhood is fantastic, and has several great coffee shops.
For those who are looking for a place to stay, but have never set foot in Chicago, I cannot recommend Emily enough!
I stayed at Emily's for a fair few nights and would thoughly recommend her place to anyone. Comfortable, clean and convenient. A host with intelligence, kindness and compassion. Emily and Airbnb made my trip to Chicago affordable and therefore possible. Thanks.
It was a pleasure having Emily as a guest! She is smart and organized and was so gracious and pleasant. I wish all guests could be just like Emily. Anyone would be lucky to have her as a guest OR a host!
Emily is a fabulous person and a great friend. She is organized, responsible, intelligent, fun, and as a host takes time to make sure her place is tip top for her guests. Enjoy your stay!
Emily is a very awesome person. She is extremely outgoing and a great host. You're gonna have a great time staying with her.
Emily is wonderful person with an incredibly unique zest for life. Staying with her in her cool neighborhood would be a much better Chicago experience than heading for a staid hotel!
