I love to travel, practice capoeira, eat healthy and mentor others to motivate them and improve their health.

My wife and I enjoyed this studio very much. The view is amazing, especially when going to sleep at night and being able to see the downtown lights while in bed! The entire studio was clean. Marcus was flexible with check in and out times. All our go to places were within walking distance.
Marcus was a terrific host. The apartment is terrific -- it had everything we needed. And then there are the stunning views and the great neighborhood. He provided lots of information about the neighborhood and was flexible regarding check-in and check-out. I'll certainly try to book with Marcus the next time I plan to be in Chicago.
Nous avons passé une super semaine à Chicago dans l'appartement de Marcus.
L'appartement est très bien bien situé et dispose d'une vue incroyable !
Il est également très bien équipé (cuisine, ordinateur avec wi-fi, laverie automatique dans l'immeuble...)
Malheureusement la piscine était en travaux durant notre séjour mais nous avons pu bénéficier de la salle de sport ce qui est appréciable.
Marcus et sa compagne Bridget ont été des hôtes parfaits ; le fait qu'ils habitent dans l'immeuble est très pratique. Ils sont toujours prêts à rendre service.
We enjoyed our stay in Marcus's very lovely apartment. The views from the apartment are wonderful and Marcus and Bridget have decorated in a way that makes excellent use of the space, so the apartment feels much larger then the actual square footage. Marcus was very flexible with both check in and check out time. This was a tremendous value for the location that included a parking space. We would highly recommend a stay here.
My family's stay at Marcus Marlow's Downtown Chicago Studio was my first airbnb experience, and it was everything I hoped it would be. For a comparable rate as I would have paid for an ordinary room at a neighboring hotel, we enjoyed a pent house apartment in a private building.
The city and lake views were a highlight for us. But amenities such as the parking space in the building's garage, the kitchen, the printer, and dependable wi-fi were important features that added practical value to our trip each day and set the studio apart from its hotel alternative.
Marcus also gets essentials right like plenty of towels and a comfy bed. The later is a welcome relief after a long day walking the city. The apartment is just a few blocks from Michigan Ave and Navy Pier, so we found it to be a highly convenient location as our home while we explored downtown Chicago by foot.
It's a personal experience to rent from a host, and it was a pleasure to meet Marcus and his associate, Bridget. Both were gracious, kind, welcoming, and always just a quick text message away when we had questions. It was fun to sign their guest book and mark our home on the world map painted on the apartment's wall.
This studio apartment is a tremendous value, and I am grateful that Marcus provides it so affordably to families like mine. It allowed me to give my wife and son an unforgettable first impression of downtown Chicago that no comparable hotel room could match. Thank you to Marcus and airbnb for such a remarkable and unique service.
I was in town for 2 days for a conference at the nearby Sheraton. Apartment was clean and comfy. Can't beat the view from the 37th floor. Marcus was nice and helpful. Definitely appreciated the free parking. I recommend Local Root, a restaurant right around the corner if you're into local, fresh food. I was disappointed the hot tub was under repairs during my stay, but what can you do.
My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our time in Chicago, thanks to this apartment and the helpfulness and friendly nature of the hosts! The apartment felt very luxurious, but also made us feel at home, which is a perfect mix. I spent a good few hours in the evening writing at the desk, right next to the window - the view as the city changed from day to night was something I won't forget in a long time!
Cannot recommend enough!
Marcus and Brigitte are lovely hosts and the apartment was comfortable and central. We enjoyed our first airbnb experience.
Fantastic! Could not have been better. Thank you so much.
Marcus upgraded us from the Loop studio to the Penthouse apartment. The apartment was very nicely, colorful furnished. And the view was absolutely spectacular! Also the free parking was a plus! I would definitely stay at Marcus's apartment again! :)
