Staying in Chicago at Helen and Jeff's place was a great experience. They are both kind and hospitable with open communication. The location was very central to downtown and the easy to use subway line. Can't wait to visit again. Go CUBS/SOX Go.

Bigger room than it seemed, private, and easily accessible public transit, as well as a nice neighborhood to walk in. Not overly fancy, but comfortable and secure, with a really good host. Clear expectationa and directions and good communication.

Loved this place. Incredibly close by bus (the 65 and 66, 2 minutes walk from apartment) goes DIRECTLY to navy pier and the Chicago blue line train goes all over the loop and out. Location was amazing, I don’t think we were on public transport for more than 20 minutes most places…
