Alison was a great host. We only stayed one night for a concert and didn't really get to talk that much but she did tell us of some great breakfast places and provided an easy check in process :)

The penthouse is beautiful and in a great location! This was our first trip to Chicago, and Alison made us feel so welcome and gave many great suggestions on places to eat, things to do/see, etc. I highly recommend her for your visit to Chicago. :)

This beautiful loft was such a pleasure to stay at while in the windy city. Waking up to a lovely view of the Chicago skyline was an awesome plus. Also with the help of the amazing host, we managed to find a bunch of fun activities to do before heading to Lollapalooza. If you like clean sheets, good company, an adorable hypoallergenic pup and great scenery, then I strongly recommend booking your stay here!

I feel like no words can accurately describe the comfort you can feel this home that so quickly and easily becomes your own. Alison is a gem of a human, she's the mom I wish I had and the host everyone can fall in love with. The photos of her place don't do justice to how cozy and warm it is, it's truly the best Air bnb we have ever stayed in. I'm going to miss waking up and going to sleep to these amazing views and even more amazing company- I can't wait to come back!

We had a great stay! Alison was an excellent host. She took really good care of us and was very accommodating -- especially to the needs of our three month old baby, Paloma. We highly recommend her place, especially if you're looking for a space to leisurely work straight from your computer. Alison's place is very well kept, creative and inspiring. And her dog Mish-Mish was the most well behaved dog we've ever met. We'd definitely like to come back whenever the opportunity comes to visit Chicago again. Thank you Alison! Saludos con mucho cariño, Edwin, Julia y Paloma.

If this place is available for your dates, book it now. Alison is a wonderful host who knows the area and has great recommendations on what to see and do. Her place was as-advertised and very conveniently located near downtown. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in the area.
