Superb location next to Hancock Tower. Walk to nearly any attraction in central Chicago, or take an express bus or train to Wrigley Field, Boystown, Hyde Park, etc. Explore Chicago with this Prohibition era building full of vintage details as home!
I love my apartment. The building is nearly a century old and all the historic detail has been preserved: arched doorways, crown molding everywhere, fireplace, hardwood floors. It's a little creaky but it's got warmth and personality. Despite being in the heart of the city, the building is almost totally silent. Even during rush hour, this block is very calm and neighbors greet each other as they walk their dogs.
The location is ideal for visiting Chicago's best spots; most of them can be reached in an hour or less of very enjoyable walking. Below is a short sampling...

*Magnificent Mile, several malls, including every designer label you can imagine
*Hancock Tower, Water Tower, historic churches, Museum of Contemporary Art, and several dozen restaurants

*Gold Coast historic residential district, a great walk for architecture fans

I'm completely flexible about interaction with guests. If you want to be left alone and do your own thing, that's great. If you want advice and help with visiting the city, I'm also happy to help out as much as I can. If timing works out I can also provide discounted entrance to the amazing Art Institute for up to three people.

Keep in mind that Chicago has wild and wildly varied weather and pack accordingly. If you're coming during rainy season, I own three umbrellas which you are welcome to use.

This is an apartment building like any other, so please respect our neighbors by keeping noise down at night and in common areas. No smoking at all in the apartment. Additionally, I prefer that people not wear shoes indoors (I provide house slippers). This isn't a requirement, just a preference. Finally, no parties!

I'm now a superhost! Book with confidence :) Former ESL teacher living in Chicago. Traveling internationally and hosting people from all around the world are two of my favorite activities. I'm happy to give suggestions to make the most of your stay in this incredible city. I speak fluent Spanish and English, and enough French to get in trouble.
