It was a good and perfect stay in Chicago. The host is really nice and hospitable. She is so knowledgeable in everything like map, tourist attractions. What i like the most is the place we've stay. It is comfy for us coz everything in the place is there. Wifi, TV, towels, and many more. Aside from that a lot of free foods which the host provided us except of course dinner and lunch. Lol. But overall, i would recommend this place for any travelers to Chicago. Nice host, quiet environment and cheap price but a very nice place to stay.

One night is too short to experience the neighbor. If coming again, I'll try to know more about the city.

Sharon User ProfileSharon is a superhost.

Chicago is"My Kind Of Town"... We have lived in the neighborhood for many years. Friendly neighbors. The Botanic Garden is one of my favorite places to visit in any of Chicago's 4 Seasons. We enjoy Lincoln Park Zoo, Navy Pier, Willis Tower & The John Hancock, Cloud-gate, Art Institute, MSI, MCA, Field, Shedd Aquarium, Planetarium, Soldier Field, United Center, Wrigley Field, Sox Park & The Chicago Theatre, just to name a few. Chicago is full of "neighborhoods" like Ukraine Village, River North, Uptown, Wrigleyville, DePaul, Logan Square, Old Town, Chinatown, Gold Coast and so many more.
