Chicago-based lover of travel.
My overall experience was fantastic! The place is in a prime location (walking distance from bars and restaurants), while still in a quiet neighborhood; thus, this could work for both couples and/or families. Also, Bill is extremely accommodating and willing to assist you with recommendations, if needed. I'd definitely return and highly recommend this location.
Staying with Bill was a fantastic experience. His condo is in a great location, close to downtown but also close to a number of cool neighbourhoods that are definitely worth exploring. It's very clean, organized and has everything you could possibly need.
As a host, he was communicative, reliable and very accommodating. He definitely went over and above to make us feel comfortable and at home. He also had some great suggestions for activities and restaurants - if he gives you a recommendation I highly recommend you take it! This was my first AirBnb experience, and based on staying with Bill I won't hesitate to use this site again. (Here's hoping all hosts are like him!)

My friend and I stayed in Bill's condo for four nights, and had a lovely time. It was really easy to get into the city from there, and it's a beautiful leafy area with some cafes and lots of sports bars nearby. Bill was a helpful host, gave us tips on areas to check out and was easily reachable via email. The place has great amenities, a super comfy couch and delightful balcony. Only downside was it seemed hastily prepared and was a little dirty.
I can only give it four (4) stars because I didn't actually stay in the condo the night I booked it, but my two (2) friends did and they really loved it! Bill was an awesome host and I was glad we could all share a bit of a Western New York cultural exchange. The location is perfect and the amenities are flawless. Not much to say if you are looking to book a stay up in Lakeview, just go to Bill's place!
Although I didn't get to meet Bill, he was a great guy and left a lot of helpful advice to have a great trip. Though he was out, he was plenty available to reach if I had any questions. As for the apartment itself, it was excellent! Clean, comfy, and bright. Overall lovely layout in an excellent spot of town (seriously, the field is so close)! His kitchen was great for cooking our morning breakfasts and the patio was a neat way to relax and unwind in the late evening. The only issue we encountered was parking, but that's to be expected in most of Chicago. I would definitely recommend Bill to anyone wanting an awesome stay in Chicago.

Excellent location for tourists or if you're going to watch the cubs play.
Bill was an great host, place is great, and room is good.
Would definitely go there again if I need to.
Great location, great apartment, and a great host. It was great to be so close to Wrigley and all the attractions in the area. Bill was especially helpful with places to go/eat and how to get downtown. I couldn't have asked for a better trip
Super nice condo, great location, friendly dude, highly recommended!
I've known Bill for 15 years. He is absolutely perfect for Airbnb! Bill would be an easy traveler to host and an invaluable and fun resource as a host himself. I've traveled with Bill to countless cities and places domestically as well as multiple countries internationally.
Bill loves to research and discover the places he visits - he'll not only know all the spots recommended in the "tourist books", but perhaps more importantly, the local and less widely-known gems of a city as well! Whether your're hosting Bill or living with him, you'll enjoy your experience!
Bill would make an ideal host. He knows Chicago, is always in tune with what's going on around town, and lives in a central location. Most important, he's generous with his time and anyone choosing to stay with him will certainly have a good time.
