Family friendly downtown suite w/ balcony! Shared pool, gym, game room! Dogs ok!

Wake up to views of the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan at this two-bedroom 28th floor Grand Plaza suite, a perfectly located urban escape with a private balcony and incredible building amenities that include a swimming pool, a fitness center, a game room, a grilling area, and a running track.

You'll find this polished, single-level suite at the Grand Plaza, a refined high-rise residence four blocks from the Chicago River in the River North neighborhood. Spend your days cruising the river on an architectural boat tour, wandering three blocks east to shop the elegant boutiques on Michigan Avenue's Magnificent Mile, attending business meetings in The Loop five blocks south, and picnicking in Millennium Park one mile southeast.

Whether you're visiting the Windy City for business or pleasure, you'll find everything you need here at the intersection of State Street and Grand Avenue. Come home from an afternoon Cubs game to relax in the central AC, toss your jersey in the private washer/dryer, and step into the full kitchen (with a dishwasher) to fix a few snacks and cocktails to enjoy on the balcony. The family dog is also welcome to come along for an additional nightly fee.

Head downstairs to the ninth floor to take advantage of the Grand Plaza's fantastic amenities, whether you choose to take a dip in the outdoor pool, work out and shoot hoops with friends, light one of the gas grills on the sundeck, or retreat to the library, the game room (with a pool table), or the business center. Back inside your suite, you can make dinner plans on the free WiFi or watch a DVD on one of the three cable TVs.

Don't wait another minute to reserve your beautiful Chicago retreat - book your stay at the Grand Plaza today!

Talk about the perfect place to stay for our little family!! With a 3.5 and 1 year old, the condo had everything we might possibly need. The grocery store next door couldn't have made it any easier. The doormen at the front were just lovely and so helpful and the double bob stroller fit easily in and out of elevators and condo. Right next to the red line so hitting all the sites was easy peasy. If we wanted to walk, that was just as lovely. Super clean condo with nice updates and PHENOMENAL SUNSETS!

The building is really well managed, with a great location and wonderful amenities. The dog park, sundeck, and workout center is great. Our family had a wonderful stay.

Great Experience for a our family of 6. It came with every admentity that you would want along with being in walking distance of every attraction downtown and the view alone from the balcony is worth the stay.

This location was perfect for our touristy weekend. We took the L from the airport, and we arrived just steps away from the front of the Grand Plaza. We then walked most places during the weekend or used Uber rides that were very inexpensive. I really don't think this location can be beat!

The rental was very clean and well appointed. It is clearly used for rentals only, as there are no personal mementos, and the sheets/shower curtains/etc. are all very similar to what you would find in a standard hotel.

I think it's important to remember that this home is IN THE CITY. Even though it's on the 28th floor, there are "city noises" such as sirens and construction that could disturb you. They certainly didn't ruin our trip, and we would return to Top of the Lake and recommend this rental to others.

Lastly, the balcony is wonderful! You could spend your whole trip just enjoying the city views!

Jeanne L. Jul 2018
We loved our stay at Top of the Lake. The apartment was very clean, great city view and extremely well located. Shopping and many great restaurants within walking distance, and Jewel Osco grocery store was located steps outside the apartment complex. Traveling with children, it was terrific to have access to a washer and dryer. The 9th floor amenities (dog park, pool) were very nice and we enjoyed several afternoons poolside. This will be our go-to place to say when we return to Chicago.

Came here for a family reunion and leisure time The views (OMG) and the convenience of having everything within walking distance was a huge plus for us..if we needed to go somewhere outside of walking distance a lift was between $5 to $ car rental was necessary..the place had the necessary amenities to meet all of our needs...the place was very clean..quiet and relaxing....there were 4 adult females...great for a girls getaway...Thank you Vacasa!!

We had a great time at Top of the Lake. The apartment is newly redone and has everything you need for your stay. It's conveniently located within walking distance of navy pier, magnificent mile shopping, and restaurants.
Allison K. May 2018
Loved it! Looked just like the photos and it was clean
Andrea S. Apr 2018
This was our second time staying at The Grand Plaza and it was just as great as our first experience. We loved the "top of the line" comforts and conveniences of "Top of the Lake" and especially the little offerings like the cool record player and albums made available. Having the Jewel Osco grocery store right next door and access to the Red Line just steps away made everything a breeze! This will definitely be our go-to place when staying in Chicago!
Carrie M. Mar 2018
Can’t beat the location, with tons of great restaurants in walking distance, and a grocery store and the red line metro just downstairs. Wonderful to have room to spread out and everything in the apartment was nicely updated. Would definitely recommend!
