I traveled with colleagues to Chicago for a conference in June. This was our second time staying in this particular apartment. Bob's place is very clean and well maintained. The location is convenient to McCormick Place and much more affordable than booking 4 hotel rooms for 4 nights. We only spent about $150 in transportation expenses to and from the conference center. The neighbors were very friendly and immediately recognized our group as new faces;...

Even just cooking your own meals so you don't have to...

Thank you Leslie. We were happy to have your family stay with us and we're always glad when a guest appreciates our rentals as much as we do. They were our home for many years. It was so nice to meet you and your family. We hope to see you again sometime in the future. Bob

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Our building and street are a quiet and peaceful place. We don't allow parties or gatherings of any kind. Our rentals are not a good fit for the very late night or very hard partying crowd. Our guests and our neighbors appreciate that we have a quiet and peaceful environment.

The maximum capacity of the apartment is 6 people in 3 queen beds (and an air bed that can be set up for one extra sleeping space). We will sometimes allow 7 if there are small children..
