“Great location in Chicago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We spent two months at Manilow Suites while we were in the process of locating to Chicago permanently. We were house hunting and trying to get to know Chicago and the apartment worked out perfectly. It is in a wonderful part of town and the building is very nice. Everyone who worked in the building and at Manilow Suites were lovely. They all went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and that our stay was flawless.

The location can't be beat. It is right on the water and just steps from Millennium park. Our favorite spot was the park right across the street. It has a great playground, beautiful flowers and fountains. There was also a very nice grocery store in the park that made living at North Harbor incredibly convenient.

My husband and I rented a "convertible" at North Harbor Tower through Manilow Suites. We were there for one month and this is our third year there. The experience was excellent! The studio is well equipped and the view could not have been better. This location is just wonderful. There are music concerts at Millenium Park, the Chicago Cultural Center, the lovely little park with water features, flowers, restaurants, grocery stores. It is in the middle of the city, but is also an oasis. The staff at Manilow Suites are very pleasant and very competent. They were right on it for any little requests. They went over and above to serve us. We look forward to more summer visits! Ideally, we would go there twice a year;; however, the budget doesn't allow it at this time. The staff at North Harbor Tower are great too. The doormen are friendly and thoughtful. It feels totally safe at this place! Thanks again!

Room Tip: Our rooms have always had fabulous views.

I want to express my sincere gratitude and say "Thank You" for the personalized services and accommodations during my recent stay, August 1-3. It was an extreme pleasure to meet Ms. Manilow and her staff. The staff did a fine job in helping me with some small needs (i.e. access in/out of the garage & secure a parking space for my pick-up truck). The apartment went beyond my expectations & the view toward Lake Michigan was amazing. Your doorman was exceptional. He was very respectful, kind, courteous, accomadating, etc. I can't say enough about this gentleman for his professional/personal behavior towards me.

I now have first hand knowledge in making a recommendation to anyone who asks me on where to stay in Chicago when traveling, either on business or pleasure.

Jim,
you have no idea how much we all have appreciated your comments.
Often times people will only make their decisions based on pictures. There is no doubt that pictures are important but as we have found over and over during these past 33 years, the human factor can never be replaced.
We look forward to seeing you again.

My wife and I just enjoyed a one month stay at North Harbor Tower. We needed room for occasional visitors during our stay; and, we sought a location near the yacht harbors. We specified a unit with a view of Navy Pier. All our expectations were exceeded in the two bedroom corner location on the 31st floor. The weekly maid service was punctual and thorough. The two A/C units were more than adequate for the hot, humid weather that passed through. All the staff were helpful with a few special requests...including adding a sports channel to the entertainment package. We found the dedicated WIFI to be reliable. The available exercise facility is unusually well equipped.

Overall, we were delighted with our experience. Proximity to public transportation and to Lakeshore bike paths and walking trails were excellent. The location provides for convenient and nearby access to several major parks, Navy Pier, downtown shopping and theatres. One of the highlights of this property is the view from your own windows...whether of the Lake and harbors, or the downtown skyline. We are already looking forward to next year.

I recently completed a multi-month stay at Manilow Suites at North Harbor Tower in Chicago. The service from Manilow Suites was generally excellent. The North Harbor Tower building itself was quite good, but had some issues with problematic elevators and rather dated apartments. Overall a very nice stay.

Thank you for your almost 2 years stay! That timeframe is certainly unusual for short term housing. North Harbor Tower is truly a dichotomy.
Manilow Suites has a number of recently renovated apartments that are spectacular in every way. They have fabulous views, large rooms, and modern open kitchens. We also have a number of apartments that have not been renovated. They do have wonderful views but the kitchens are not as modern. Because they have not been renovated we are able to offer people lower rates for these apartments.
On occasion, we have experienced the need for maintenance on elevators in every high-rise building we have ever been in. If you live in a house, such as I do, it can be frustrating at times. Our office has been in this building for over 20 years and we are thrilled with the numerous upgrades in the public areas as well as the apartments within the last year.

I recently completed a two month stay at one of Manilow's apartments at North Harbor Tower and could not have been happier. The accommodations were excellent and the apartment was furnished with everything we needed and more. The three bedroom apartment was big (almost 1800 sq ft) and more than adequate to accommodate myself, my wife and our two daughters. Manilow was extremely responsive to any questions and issues we had throughout our stay. There was a small problem with our wireless internet and they sent someone out the same day to fix it. We also requested a DVR box and they had the cable company out the next day to install it. After our two months were up we decided to rent an apartment in the building and Manilow even let us keep our parking spot. We would definitely recommend Manilow to anyone looking for a corporate housing partner.

Reading a review such as yours, makes this business all worthwhile to me. If I'm not mistaken, it was our housekeeper who noticed that you needed black out drapes and notified our operations person. We were delighted in making your stay with us more comfortable.
I am always saying to people," If there is anything additional we can do for you, please just let us know."

We enjoyed a 2 month stay at North Harbor Tower through Manilow Suites via my husband's employer. We have two small daughters aged 1 and 3 and couldn't have had a better setup for them. The 3 bedroom apt we had on the 30th floor was HUGE, almost 1800 sf, and the South and East facing views of the skyline and Lake Michigan were breath-taking. Manilow was very attentive during our stay and responded to our requests promptly and with excellent customer service. They even had room-darkening curtains custom-made and installed for both of the girls' bedrooms. The indoor pool, gym, mommy and me classes on the first floor, and even small library(with kids books!) on the first floor really makes this building excel for family living. That in combination with all of the walkable sights and attractions make this location superb. We enjoyed our stay so much, that we ended up renting an apt in the same building for another year. Manilow was outstanding!

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room with lake views!
