I love to travel, practice capoeira, eat healthy and mentor others to motivate them and improve their health.
My daughter and I needed a quick getaway. We found Marcus' place and within 20 minutes had a response back from our request. He was helpful and after hearing that we were a daughter and dad combo offered us an even better housing solution. The arrival, stay and departure were spot-on and despite us locking the key in the room one evening (and having to call (email hidden) on a weeknight to let us in) he was gracious and prompt. The studio was exceptionally appointed, VERY clean and a wonderful location for our needs. AAA+++ Thank you!
The place has great view and convenient location. Going to many popular place within walking distance. Free parking is also a good benefit for travelers. My family has a good time here. Marcus is kind and polite. I will strongly recommend my friend and myself to rent this place again if coming to Chicago.
Stunning view, free parking, and a convenient location. Couldn't ask for a better stay in Chicago - just wished we had more time to take advantage of the amenities the building had to offer.
Marcus was a great host and answered all our questions. He even gave us a lift to the train station which was much appreciated. Would definitely stay again.
Marcus was a great host and his place is amazing! Great location to all the sites to see. Looking forward to staying there again in the near future.
We spent a great week in February in Marcus & Bridget apartment. We could not have made a better choice.
The apartment is clean, quiet, perfectly equipped and has a magical view over the lake and the Hancock tower. It was also the ideal location for us, close to every place where we wanted to go.
Marcus and Bridget were very friendly and welcoming hosts, willing to help us with any concern we could have during our stay (and we had not any!). Bridget even speaks french !
This is definitely where we want to stay on our next visit to Chicago and we will be sure to check the availability of the apartment before planning our travel.
The apartment was absolutely perfect! Views were spectacular and the covered parking garage was a huge plus! We were within walking distance of everything. Marcus was an absolutely amazing host that was so quick to answer any and all questions and was always polite! Bridget was a great help also and so nice! If we visit the city again we would definitely come back to this studio apartment!! Thanks again for everything Marcus and Bridget! Your apartment was exactly what we needed for a weekend getaway to the city!!
Great apartment! Loved the steam/dry sauna, gym, and pool all in the building, especially in the winter!
If you want to have amazing views of the Chicago skyline, the lake and be close to the shopping on Michigan Ave., then this is the place for you. My wife and I had a great stay at Marcus's place and loved waking up every morning to incredible views of the Hancock tower and the frozen lake below.
The apartment itself is nice and new with a full kitchen and an awesome entertainment system. You're on the top floor of the building, though, so you'll probably spend more time looking out of the windows (email hidden). Everything was clean and comfortable and the neighborhood is very safe and quiet. You're also only a few blocks off of Michigan, so you're never far off from shopping, food and transportation.
Marcus and Bridget were also super helpful and always there should you have any questions. Bridget met us at the front door and made sure we had everything we needed. Marcus was also only a text away and was very attentive to us.
All in all, we would highly recommend Marcus (and Bridget!) and his place. It's amazing!
Great location for my stay in Chicago, in a safe and accessible neighborhood close to public transportation, restuarants, the lake, and many other points of interest. The studio had AMAZING and BEAUTIFUL views of the city and all necessary amenities including wireless internet, cable, a kitchen, and a parking space in case you happen to have a car.
Marcus was a friendly, welcoming, and accomodating host. I had to get into the unit earlier than anticipated because my flight was early, and it wasn't a problem! I never plan to stay in a hotel when visiting Chicago again and plan to recommend this Studio to all my family and friends!
