This single-level suite is located on the 35th floor in the Grand Plaza, a polished high-rise residence on the corner of State Street and Grand Avenue in River North. Take architectural boat tours of the Chicago River four blocks south, spend your days shopping on Michigan Avenue's Magnificent Mile three blocks east, and conduct a bit of business in The Loop five blocks south. You'll also be mere blocks from Lou Malnati's, Frontera Grill, Topolobampo, and other legendary Chicago eateries.

Come home from a weekend Cubs game or a tour of the Art Institute of Chicago to unwind in the central AC, whip up a snack in the full kitchen (with a dishwasher), and bask in the cool breeze on your private balcony. Use the free WiFi to make dinner reservations, grab a change of clothes from the private washer/dryer, and head downstairs for a fun-filled night out on the town.

Spend the rest of your vacation enjoying the Grand Plaza's amenities, whether you choose to sunbathe by the outdoor pool, shed a bit of stress in the sauna, work out in the fitness center, or practice your jump shot on the basketball court. Catch up on email in the business center, grill with your friends in the outdoor picnic area, and hold high-stakes pool tournaments in the game room. Back in your suite, you'll have two cable TVs and a DVD player for quiet nights at home. The family dog is also welcome to join you for an additional nightly fee.

This apartment is in a well-managed and well equipped building (gym. pool, basketball court, sauna/steam, running track and 9th flr dog park) and extremely well located in River North. Lots of restaurants, shopping and blues/jazz clubs within blocks. The apartment itself (35th flr.) is spacious and by and large in good shape. The BUT that took some of the shine off our recent Xmas stay included: only 3 bath towels, 1 facecloth and no bathmat; only one dishtowel in the kitchen and no dishwashing scrubbers; no soap dish/rack in the tub/shower; and, most irritating of all, the drawers to the kitchen cabinets were improperly installed, meaning they wanted to fall out every time they were opened. Obviously these are all minor issues, easily remedied, which is why I rate the apartment highly and look forward to staying there again.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Robert. We have reinstalled the drawers correctly, and we will ensure housekeeping is placing extra towels in the home. We hope to see you again!

Great location,

I loved everything about this apartment, the location is prime, next to Jewel Osco on State St., walking distance to many cool hot spots. Magnificent views, tasteful decoration, cozy bed, Roku tv, fully equipped kitchen (no Keurig though). The only minus I would say is having to run the dishwasher and take the trash out. Minor things really, but when on a business trip this is inconvenient as time can get tight. I enjoyed the place, the view, the location, all of it!
I recommend this place 100%.

We loved everything about this apartment. It's very clean, well equipped and spacious. Not to mention it is very well located and close to grocery stores, restaurants, etc. We had a very intense work trip and were happy to go back to the apartment every night. Highly recommend it!

My wife and I go to Chicago a few times a year and typically stay in a hotel. We decided to take our 2 year old this time a d wanted something with a bit more space. The Grand Vista was located in a great spot right downtown and the suite was awesome. Only down sides were the parking (expensive and no In-&-Out Privileges), the hallway cleanliness (especially near the garbage chute) and elevators (took us over 5 minutes to get one the day we left). Overall though, the location was great and we'd definitely consider staying again.

We had a great time over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, very conveniently located, right next to Jewel-Osco. The room was very clean, and well appointed. We brought our dog, I loved the ninth floor dog run. Never really had to leave the hotel to try to find a patch of grass. Highly recommend, and will stay again.

We had a wonderful time in Chicago staying at the Grand Vista. It was conveniently located near tons of restaurants, the beach, the Loop, a subway station and much more. The pool and other amenities were awesome. Free gourmet coffee every morning!

The views looking north from the 35th floor are awesome. My wife and I spent a week sightseeing in Chicago and this was the perfect little apartment.

There is a grocery/liquor/deli right next store and we were able to get all our necessities. There is a Red Line stop on the corner and with our 7-day passes, we were free to explore the city.

The building attendants - Chris, Aubrey, and Pierre - were excellent and very helpful.

The 9th-floor amenities were great. We took advantage of the library, workout room, and coffee machine.

The apartment has a wonderful king-sized bed, nice bathroom, kitchen, and washer/dryer.

For the most part, it was very comfortable. We did get a very heavy rain day and had to spend the day indoors. The living room furniture felt a little, um, not sure how to put it...well, it was not as amazingly comfortable as the bed.

Checkin/out was a snap. The property managers do make you fill out a contract and send it back. I did this electronically and a few weeks later I happened to check on my reservation and saw it was still incomplete. I called the management company and was told I had to print, sign, scan, THEN return the contract. It was all good after that.

The elevators were a bit slow during peak times, but, hey, we were on vacation.

We would definitely use this spot again.

We loved our stay at this convenient condo in downtown Chicago. We were within walking distance to so many great attractions and felt right at home here! Also, the local property manager called us to let us know that we could check in early, and to let him know if we needed anything. Such great service!
