We just returned from a wonderful 'ladies' vacation in Chicago, and the 2 bedroom penthouse on the 53rd and 54th floors was a perfect retreat for us. At the risk of repeating other reviews, we found the accommodations to be well-stocked, and comfortably appointed. Everything you need was there. It was particularly handy having a grocery store in the building. Also, as others have commented, the location couldn't be better. This was my fifth visit to Chicago and I liked this location the best. River North neighbourhood has so many wonderful restaurants, bars, jazz clubs, and shopping right at the door step. And the location being next to the Red Line, and within walking distance to Mag Mile and Navy Pier - well, it was just the best! The staff were very friendly and helpful, and I met wonderful people who lived in the building. The hosts were outstanding. They looked after us and communicated with us in a timely fashion. It truly was perfect. I highly recommend and would certainly stay again.
Recently spent several weeks enjoying one of the excellent one bedroom Penthouse apartments at the Grand Plaza. It was not only very comfortable and immaculate; its furnishings were well appointed and modern. The PHs at Grand Plaza are centrally located with a metro stop, buses, and rental bikes at the door. It is an easy stroll to the Magnificent Mile, the Lake front and Chicago RiverWalk, with several quality food markets within walking distance (with one on the ground floor of the building!). Many excellent restaurants are in the neighborhood, as are several theaters (we saw Hamilton and 2 other shows while we were there.) Website photos from owners are accurate but do not fully portray the experience of the fabulous views of Chicago from the 51st floor. PHs are in a safe, well maintained residential building with friendly people, and helpful door reception staff. The owners had simply thought of everything to make the stay comfortable... rental arrangement were very easy and the owners were very responsive to all of our queries. We will definitely stay there again. The quality of this apartment and the owners friendly responsive communication really made our Chicago stay of 3 weeks a memorable experience.
How could this place possibly surprise you when it is so obviously amazing? Not exactly sure. First I hadn't quite realize how perfect the location was. Then once my jaw stopped dropping from the wraparound views, I was a amazed at how COZY the space felt. That was a shocker. I just wanted to BE there. By the hour. By the day.
Everything went like clockwork and the apartment staff were cordial and kind. The facilities were clean as could be. Can't recommend this enough. Not my last time staying here, for certain.
“Incroyable vue depuis toutes les pièces de appartement.” - La piscine envahie de monde le week end. Les propriétaires envoient de multiples rappels et règlements avant et pendant le séjour.
Great location, beautiful view, very clean, fully stocked, great outdoor pool and facilities!
Very highly recommend. Excellent one bedroom apartment. Very comfortable, very clean, furnishings in very good condition, modern, stunning views from 50th floor, central location, metro stop and buses at door, food market next door, restaurants, shops everything right there. Website photos from owners are exactly what we found. We travel a lot, are discerning travellers and were extremely delighted with this. Apartments are in residential building with friendly people, helpful door reception staff, felt very secure and safe. Apartments secure. Best feature was that the owners had simply thought of everything to make the stay comfortable in the apartment and were very responsive to all of our queries. When we had a health concern and asked about medical services, the owner was empathic and quick to advise of services. We have advised friends already about this place and would definitely stay there again. The quality of this apartment and the owners responsive communication really made our Chicago stay of 8 days a fantastic and interesting experience.
Excellent accommodations . Excellent location for sightseeing . Great grocery store right next-door , and plenty of great restaurants .
Location was excellent!
This condo was beautiful, spacious, super clean, and very quiet ... in summary: perfect! And the views are truly amazing - some days we didn't want to leave the window! The condo is so well stocked with everything you could possibly need (at one point I needed a ruler, and found one on the desk). My daughter found a book she's been wanting to read in the library on the 9th floor - she was thrilled! It was also very convenient that there was a red line train station and grocery store so close. We had a great time staying in this condo and will definitely come back!
The location was great and the apartment was very nice and comfortable. The owners were very good about giving advice, making parking, entry, and exit a breeze.
I loved, loved this place. It was a wonderful, quiet haven to come to at the end of a long day spent at the convention center. Location was excellent. Show buses picked up right across the street and we walked everywhere else because we were in the heart of everything. Will definitely stay here whenever I come to Chicago.
The view was fantastic! The apartment was immaculate. We were within blocks of Trader Jo's and Whole Foods, which was great because we like to make our own food. Easy access to Chicago sights. Great instructions from owners. Loved Everett the doorman:)
This property gives you an opportunity to live in the heart of Chicago. Gorgeous view next to a very nice fireplace.. a perfect, well equipped kitchen and very comfortable bed. It offers you free parking lot which is very important in downtown. You can find anything you want just a few minute away. Wi-Fi is very good and enough for video conference.
We didn't like that we had to return home for work on Monday. Would have loved to stay a few more days. Location, Location, Location. Fantastic views, comfortable accommodations. Everything we needed was in the unit. Could not be happier with our stay.
