This is a great spot for a family visiting the city. Close to public transportation and easy into downtown. Lots of games for the kids to play in the evening and plenty of space for our family of five.

Wade and Jenn are great hosts of this vintage three flat. My two boys had fun dressing up as pirates and playing or at least opening every game that was available in the living room. The dinning table was great for having friends over for some Jimmy's Pizza. Our stay was short but sweet. Hope to be back in Chicago again next June. Thanks again!!!
