What Past Guests Are Saying
We stayed here for a week in October. The booking process and everything went well and we were given information relevant to our stay. The unit is in a fantastic location in Streeterville very near to Navy Pier, Michigan ave and State Street. You really can walk to pretty much everything. There's a good pub around the corner - Timothy O'Tools which is great for watching sports and the food is decent too. The condo itself is well equipped, it's not luxurious but functional. There are some missing blinds and a chipped tile in the bathroom but really not an issue, it would just make it a little more homely if these were fixed. The views from the unit are fantastic though and we would not have used the blinds that much anyway. We had an issue with the water being switched off by the building on our last day but the owners compensated us adequately for this. I would definately return here if travelling to Chicago in the future as it's far better than a hotel room.

Dump, With a View
Yes, the view is spectacular. You will need to keep looking out the windows in order to keep from kicking yourself for getting suckered into this place. We stayed here 4 nights. It is Id29, 600 N. McClurg Ct., Apt. No. 2411. Avoid it. We are seasoned Chicago visitors, read these 3 available reviews, could find no others on the web, so decided to try it for something different from our usual hotel stays. We went in expecting "worn" and "not up to luxury standards" -- what understatements! The moment you open the door you are greeted with such badly stained, streaked and dirty carpet you will be alerted to check the bed for bedbugs (there were none). We performed a cursory inspection, found the kitchen clean (except a dirty oven) and headed for the bathroom, also clean (except for disgusting shower curtain). But across the hallway we couldn't help but immediately spot the bed, in a V-shape! How whoever made up the bed with those badly wrinkled mismatched sheets didn't notice the mattress caving in in the middle is beyond comprehension. We texted manager Esther, who was very resposive, but that didn't spare us from spending the first night on the sofa!!! The following day a very nice man named Johnny came, said the frame was broken, and returned later to install a new one. There are a total of 5 lamps in this condo, 2 are broken. Some electric outlets don't work. Furniture appears to be all thrift-store finds. One upholstered chair is dirty and smelly; we covered it with a large beach towel! No headboard for bed with well-used old mattress. Walls throughout are dirty and marked, badly in need of paint. And did we mention the carpet? Yes, folks, the view is great, the manager is responsive. But the owner apparently has no pride, and does bare minimum to keep the $$$ flowing in. There are dozens of places in Chicago with a great location, steps to everything. And this price isn't even the big bargain one reviewer may have you think. It was $105 a night, plus a $75 cleaning fee. That means it cost us about $124 a night. Well, we've stayed at the affinia (now MileNorth) twice for only $99 a night and once for $109. We've stayed at Whitehall, Hotel Monaco, Millennium Knickerbocker, Westin, etc. each for around $129. Need a kitchen? We've stayed at Residence Inn and Hilton, both in prime Mag Mile locations, for $119. The secret to top locations in top hotels, folks, is to wait to make your reservations until 2 or 3 days before you arrive; even just 1 day. That's when the prices plummet! And know that there are thousands of hotel rooms along Mag Mile, so don't get nervous, you will easily find a terrific place to stay. It's not at this rundown icky condo!!!
Response from Reservations - 05/08/2013
The guests were rather large and sweaty. They broke the frame on the first night, which we replaced the next day.
We did not charge them for breaking the frame yet they were still upset that I didn't come out in the middle of the night to replace it. I informed them that the store isn't open in the middle of the night for me to purchase the replacement frame but they did not seem content with that answer.
The carpet is not dirty/stained, it is a light brown in color, which is its natural color. Apparently they thought that meant it was dirty, which shows you how perceptive they are. Or perhaps they have an axe to grind, and are willing to make gross misrepresentations of the condo in order to hurt us.
Also, they sweated into the chair during their stay. They were fond of walking around during the hot and humid weather and sported large sweat stains on their backs and armpits. We have since steam cleaned the furniture and the carpets in order to remove all trace of their presence.
They are also giving out misleading advice: the prices they are quoting are prices for winter (Jan to March) or prices for hotels near the airport or in the suburbs, miles outside of downtown. In practice, waiting for last minute deals seldom works during the busy season. Usually you find yourself priced out or sold out of your desired locations, and having to stay miles from where you wanted. I would not wait to book until the last day for travel dates/locations that are widely desired, as the supply of available units will quickly be reserved.

Ficamos neste condo por 4 dias. A localização é perfeita, o apartamento é ótimo, vista espetacular. Podem melhorar as roupas de cama, banho e utensílios de cozinha. Só isso.
This apt. is the best choice to stay in Chicago, perfect location, excellent price. I went for a week to take a course that was being held over there so I didnt wanted to spend very much in lodging, although I wanted to be in a good location since I was going alone and I wasnt thrilled to take the bus or long walks at night .
The apt has an unbeatable location, it is walking distance to Michigan ave., great shopping area, supermarket, etc. A great thing is that there is a 7-eleven just besides the building and a starbucks in front. If i go to Chicago again I wouldnt look even more, besides almost every hotel or apartment is waay much higher in price.
The condo has a great location near Navy Pier and wonderful lake/city views. Unfortunately, that's the only good thing I can say about the place. The condo is in poor repair, with broken and missing ac/heating vent covers and stained carpeting. Several of the lamps had no lightbulbs in them; the owner did bring new bulbs after we complained. The TV didn't work and wasn't hooked up to cable, anyway. The owner had no idea what to do about that, and was generally uninterested in finding a solution. I left a voice mail message suggesting she should give us a small refund for the inconvenience, and we never heard from her again. I just let the matter drop. There are lots of good places to stay in Chicago, but this isn't one of them. And, by the time we paid the service charge, etc, etc, it wasn't even inexpensive.
