Great location and views

Views were exactly as pictured and location was perfect. Convenient parking. Management team was very accommodating. Shower pressure was just passable. That said would definitely stay here again.

outstanding views

ceiling to floor windows thru out make for outstanding views of Chicago and the lake...the apartment and beds are very comfortable and clean. ..and pretty centrally located ... the garage parking very easy and convienent ...just a couple of quibbles..the full kitchen is equipped for breakfast but only light cooking..and the towels a bit too threadwear for the claimed luxury status..that said would return and recommed without reservations

Chicago Downtown Condo

Beautiful place within walking distance to the Mile, Hancock, etc. Front desk was very friendly and helpful. The rental staff were just a phone call away if we had any questions. We would definitely stay there again.

Great experience !! A+++

We just came back from our trip to Chicago we stayed 6 days at this property and it was unforgettable. The condo has an extraordinary view from the living room and the main bedroom. It's worth every penny you pay for it. The only little inconvenient we had is that we were told to leave the apartment until 11 am. And the cleaning service came around 9-10 and took all our stuff we had in the fridge, still don't know why. But overall at the end I was very satisfied with our decision Thank you !

Easy access and great over all experience!

Nice building and amenities. Grocery store connected is like a small Trader Joe's. Walking distance to Starbucks, dunken doughnuts, gas station, 24hr Subway, Jimmy John's and cafe's and so many more! Museum campus and train station are mere blocks away. View is great and friendly service. Place is well stocked but just a little dusty. Wish living space was a little bigger; however, fit 8 people fine- just a bit snug.

Fabulous Condo!!

Great condo right by Lakeshore Drive! Clean, spacious, well appointed. One parking spot, other parking difficult to find. Laundry facility in condo. Large back deck. Plenty of room for 6 people. Would definitely stay here again!

Great place to stay!

A couple of my conference buddies and I were fortunate enough to find this ideally located apartment, convenient to the Loop and McCormick Place, where our conference was held. We enjoyed the view, the spacious layout, the large kitchen. Having a small grocery downstairs and a Nepalese restaurant on the corner, washer and dryer, pool right there, with grilling had we had time--I do not see any better place to stay for a conference visit or exploring Chicago.

Amazing in many ways

We were there in Dec 2009. First, when we entered the building we were just overwhelmed of this great atmosphere! Then - we went up to the 18th floor - I opened the door and everyone of us started screaming - we couldnt believe the stunning view! This apartment has everything you need for a perfect vacation: nice accomodation, stunning view, a pool, a gym, a grocery store downstairs, and ... very important... its in the center of almost everything! Just great! Esther and Grace were responsible for the reservation- they are really nice and answered all of my questions- which were a lot :-) Thank you again for this great stay!

amazing view!

When we arrived, the first thing we saw was the amazing view of the city. The apt. was as pictured on the web-site. A little smaller than I thought it would be but over all great! Staff friendly and helpfull! Lots to do and see. Had to buy some wash clothes when we discovered that there were'nt any, guess that would be The only criticism. Had a wonderful time here! Thanks soo much!!

Thanksgiving in Chicago

The condo was the perfect place for our family trip to Chicago. Clean, spacious, fantastic views. Couldn't ask for better communication from the property owners. They emailed specifics and website information to make our holiday absolutely spectacular. Thank you so very much.

Wedding Family Stay

We stayed in this apartment for a family wedding we were attending in Chicago. There were 5 adults and one 2 year old. We were totally happy with the apartment, the cleanliness, bedrooms, and overall condition was perfect. The view is outstanding and the access to the unit and surrounding areas was great. We've already recommended to others the value of staying in this type of apartment instead of a hotel, etc. I know for sure we will be contacting you folks again for our next trip...thanks again for a great weekend.

Awesome

The condo was beautiful and in the perfect location. Right down the road from Soldier Field. They have a convenient store right next to the condominium. Plus, Grace and Esther were so nice and answered all of my questions as soon as I asked. I plan on staying at this location again and recommend it to everyone.

Exceeded expectations!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was planning my sister's bachelorette party in Chicago for 6 ladies and it took me a looooooong time to find a rental that felt right.....well I'm glad I chose this one because it was AMAZING. Amy (the owner) had everything you needed to feel comfortable and as close as possible to your being in your own home, i have to say even better! Washer and Dryer, dishwasher (which we used a lot, lots of wine and champagne!!!), pots, pans, plates and cutlery and even knives and a cutting bored everything you need to make yourself at home. We even stayed in one of the nights and bought a bunch of cheese, veggies and snacks from Trader Joe's, which is in city, and just enjoyed the space and each other, that's how comfortable you will be at this condo!!! The location is perfect, the big silver Bean and Millennium Park is about a block or so away if that gives you an idea of where you're at in the city. You can cab it anywhere, or walk, depending on where you need to go. We had a wonderful time, and I will definitely rent here again when I come back to Chicago....all the ladies I was with were very impressed and are thinking of doing the same!!!! Thanks so much Amy!!!!!!!!!!

Chicago Family Fun

We enjoyed the unit and the view was fantastic. We had enough room for all of us, seven in total, to move around and not be in each others way. We were able to cook most meals in the unit which was great way to save money. The only real problem was that the "Coffee Maker" did not work and I had to go out for coffee every morning. The kitchen needed a few more eaten and drinking utensils and cooking utensils, no measuring cup any where to be found. Location was great with a bus stop at the front door and a subway station two blocks away. We walked or used mass transit for just about everything we did, made it nice. Everyone was very friendly in the building and made us feel welcomed, the Doorman were helpful in finding places and using the mass transit system. Great place and would recommend it to friends.

awsome view and location

loved the location. our suit overlooked parks, the lake, the sky line, and the Navy Pier. Red line or bus just steps from the door. (14.00 for a three day pass). Turn R on Roosevelt, go over the bridge and find yourself in a beautiful lake side park with all the muesums. Pick up a water taxi right there and ride over to the Navy Pier for only 7.00. Safe area, a small grocery right in the building, fast food close by. The pool was very nice also. but some rowdy kids that pretty much ruined it for everyone, parents were oblivious. The only down side was that the apartment lacked some basic's. 6 people 4 coffee mugs, no night stands, one bed room had a cheap, flimsey clothes rack in lou of a closet. No head boards, only 5 wash cloths, no bath mats. . My bed room lamp was broken. A lot of the furnishings came from a Dollar Store, like the set of plastic drawers in the bathroom and the cheap floor lamps, low end blender. This building is wonderful , the view amazing it is a shame the owners did not decorate or buy quality furnishings. It is furnished like a collage dorm room. Lot's of cheap. Lot's of plastic. No furnature at all on the balcolny. Also the cable and wireless were out the entire time. Would I stay here again. YES. would I use this unit...probably. However I might try and find something in the same building , better equiped.

Perfect Location

We rented 2 of these units to house 6 staff members for a large trade show at McCormick. The location was PERFECT! Minutes to the show, minutes to the heart of the city and lots of stuff close by. An upscale grocery store is attached to the building and YOLK (one of the best breakfast restaurants in the country) is a block away. The building is beautiful, well maintained, safe and clean. The apartments were spacious and well laid out. Perfect size for 3 people needing their own room. You could easily fit 6 people if couples were sharing rooms. Our only complaints were as follows: Decor left a little to be desired. The units could have been decorated nicer. It appeared that these units were always set up t be rental so there were not many personal touches. There was no art on the walls, the only TV was a little on the small side and the furnishing were adequate but appeared to be the most inexpensive they could find. TV remote did not work well at all and needs to be replaced. A full size ironing board would be nice. Not enough hangers to go around. Bedding was very nice and the view was great. Despite the few downfalls this was a great place to stay!

Penthouse in heart of downtown CHicago

Excellent accommodation, clean and tidy and well equiped for a high end service appartment. 50th floor with stunning city views. Free WIFI which was quick. Nice bed linens. Very very minor suggestion is to have toiletries in accommodation ie shower gel/soap +/- shampoo. Quite a few of our party got caught out with that one... being use to hotels. Overall the lending agent was very helpful and easy to deal with and all went as expected. Highly recommended downtown location. Extremely good value. Easy walk to most museums and attractions. Will be back.

Fantastic!

We recently visited Chicago to celebrate my sisters and nieces birthdays. One was turning 50 and another 40,and my niece 20, so I really wanted it to be special (our 80 year old mother came along as well). The condo was a big hit, the views fantastic and enough space for everyone to relax and enjoy as opposed to falling all over ourselves at a hotel. There was something for everyone. Thanks for a great visit, I hope to use VRBO from now on when I travel. Annette Corcoran

Gals Trip to Chicago

Six of us gals spent 4 nights recently in Chicago. Luckily I found this condo on the internet with a fantastic, panoramic view of the City. Public transportation was a few steps out of the secured building along having a grocery store nearby. Condo was very spacious, clean, with super (3) firm king size beds. Furnishings were a little sparce but we only ate breakfast in the condo and had other meals in wonderful restaurants Chicago offers. We would definitely stay there again. Safe neighborhood being south end of Michigan Ave. A wonderful experience and a good time was had by all.

Great place to stay....

the stunning view advertised was everything it said. Beds were comfortable, place was clean. Access to the "L" red line was easy.

Margie Saul

DeValls Bluff, AR USA

Wonderful place to stay

Four sisters and our three daughters went to Chicago to visit a nephew who lives there and to see the city. Had a wonderful trip. The condo is clean and neat. One neice is a "germaphobe" but she was very comfortable in the condo, so you know it was clean!! Had a terrific view of Lake Michigan and the city. Very conveniently located to catch a bus or cab. The doormen were super and very helpful. The grocery was small but well stocked, even had food prepared for meals if you didn't want to cook or eat out. Building was quiet, though we did hear the wind and rain one night. Neighbors were friendly when we met them in the hall, elevator, etc. Would recommend the condo very highly.

Incredible views!

Our family of 7 (5 adult children) recently stayed in the 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath condo in Sky 55 on the 37th floor. Our stay could not have been better. The views from the floor to ceiling windows are stunning. The condo was very clean and well set up. We had an issue with the cable TV the first night and Esther immediately took care of it. The location is near the museums and Soldier Field which we all walked to and enjoyed very much. The main shopping district is just a bus ride down Michigan. The "L" is only 2 blocks away and it will get you pretty much any where you'd like to go in the city. The beds were comfortable. The couches were large but not real comfortable. The kitchen was set up nicely with plenty of dishes and glasses and a large refrigerator. Also a dishwasher. There's even a washer/dryer. There are 2 showers and a nice deep soaking tub. There are generally only 6 chairs at the dining table but Esther (or Grace) had 2 more chairs sent up for us, which was great. The pool was very nice and also the fitness center. Thursday night we all went down to the media room to watch the first football game of the year on a large screen TV with theatre seating - very fun. We hope to be back in Chicago again soon and hope to be lucky enough to find this property available. It is an exceptional find and I would recommend it to anyone.

What a great place to stay in Chicago

We had a wonderful experience at this apt. The location is perfect for just about anything you want to do in Chicago. It is very clean, quiet and comfortable with just about the best view you could wish for. The only thing I would suggest is the furnishings are a bit sparse and it would be nice to see a few of the usual things you expect at a hotel like soap in the bathrooms and a few more extra blankets and such. But all in all, we would love to go back and use this apt. again in the future.

Fabulous!

The place is great. Views, locale, and comfort for everyone. It was hard to leave after spending a 4 day weekend in the SKY 55 condo. It was only improved with the Air and Water Show to entertain us. Bring your binoculars!

Amazing Place

We come to Chicago each year for a trade show. This is the 2nd time I have stayed at Sky 55 and have been extremely happy both times. The only downside would be the TV & the bad reception (guess I'm used to watching HD). Other than that, the views alone will blow you away. Add that to the amazing pool, the central location of everything, and the reasonable price and you just can't go wrong staying here.

Martin Koepke

Right price, comfortable and great views

We stayed two nights, invited friends for before dinner drinks and met up with others at the pool for after dinner fun. Rooms are nicely appointed with plenty of appliances and kitchenware a fun and respectful community, a mix of renter and condo owners. We will be back.

Great view, great neighborhood, great location

Everything about this condo: location, view, and the neighborhood was great! Lots of windows, it overlooks Grant Park, and has a nice view of Lake Michigan. It's convenient to everything: museums, shopping, and restaurants. The building has a nice pool, hot-tub, workout area, and a DVD theatre.

John Terech

Ann Arbor, MI

Great Location and Accomodations

Our family went there and had a great time. 10 minute walk to Shedd/Museum of Natural History. One block to trains/busses. Pool. Weight Room. Grocery Store. Media Room. Traveled with kids (2, 8, 8, 10, 12). They had a better time than in Florida (their quote!) Eat breakfast in your own kitchen and then take off for the day. Esther was very helpful wit hdirecitons and recommendations. Why stay in a hotel?

Amber Y

Gilbert, AZ USA

Ideal Location

We loved staying in this condo! It was clean, comfortable, well equipped, close to everything, and the views are truly amazing. Grace and Esther made sure everything we needed was taken care of and the 2 tiny problems we had were dealt with immediately. The location really is ideal, we stayed a full week and never needed a car. I would recommend this condo to anyone.

E, Sunukjian

Great for group

Unbelievable floor to ceiling windows with views of the whole city that you can't really discern from the photos in the ad. Very nice well-equipped kitchen. We would definitely do this again over a hotel for our group of 7 adults.

Truly "Steps to Everything"

We came to Chicago for a wedding and some sight seeing. This condo was everything that you could ask for. We were on the 31st floor with a view of Millennium Park, Navy Pier, Soldier Field, and everything in between. From the balcony, you look down on the Roosevelt station for the EL and Subway. There is a small grocery store actually IN the building, and a large Osco store only a block away. The place was clean and ready to go, and Ester and Grace did everything that they said that they would and then some. I look forward to returning to Chicago in the future and I already know where we will be staying.
