We just stayed six nights in this condo. It was perfect for our needs - two comfortable bedrooms, clean, kitchen well-stocked with all necessary utensils/dishes/appliances, beautiful views, steps from the Grand & State "L" station, a decent grocery store in the same block, and tons of great restaurants close by. The front desk staff were all courteous and helpful. Check-in was quick and easy even at 8:30 pm. There were no downsides other than needing earplugs to block out city noise, which was expected given the central location.

Had everything we needed. Views of the lake, John Hancock and Willis Tower. Plus a pool and good workout facilities.

This unit was as advertised with added bonuses every step of the way. Convenient parking, friendly staff, larger than expected rooms, everything needed for an easy and relaxing time. The views are fantastic!

We spent 4 days in this suite and loved it. Perfect space for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. the views are amazing. The doorman was always helpful. Gym and basketball court. In suite laundry. The full kitchen was great for our Thanksgiving dinner. Management team was very responsive to all our questions. No problems. We would definitely stay again as it felt like home.

Prime location, fabulous view.

The space was nice and concienient. WiFi was weak and Vacasa representatives were not helpful with early checkin so you have to tip the bellman to put your bags in a closet or wait around until 4 pm on a Saturday to get in your apartment. MOST issue was this was not a 6 person unit. It had a king, queen, small couch and the cheapest futon to lay on the floor that my 11 year old slept on. They should have been more direct that it was not a real futon or pull out couch.
Manager response:
We do advertise this home as sleeping 4 comfortably, though the maximum occupancy is 6, because we understand the additional bed is not terribly comfortable. We apologize if this was upsetting.

Life on the 45th floor was fantastic. These apartments have everything you would ever need for a comfortable vacation! This building is smack dab in the middle of all of the fun. If you feel the need to explore, you are walking distance to most everything. However, if you're not feeling motivated, the building truly has it all. The front desk staff is so accommodating and the residents are all very friendly. My stay here met and exceeded all of my expectations and I can't wait to return. You will LOVE this place!!
