Some street noise but can live with it. If the room had walk-around map to show points of interest (restaurants, bars, shops etc), it will be quite convenient. Google map is okay but it does not show various restaurants in one screen.
2 bed room for family of 4 worked well. Full furnished kitchen and living room were comfortable to stay in.

Besides confirmation from booking.com, we have received more than 10 mails regarding our stay. Nice to have focus, but a few mails less would be nice.
Location, view, quality of interior etc. was absolutely 1. class. Master bedroom is a separat unit with bedroom, desk, and bathroom.

Condo has great amenities - a home away from home - much better than a small hotel room!

Amazing view central to everything

We didn't like that the fitness center with hot tub was closed for renovation. We made our selection based on having a spa and we did not find out until checking in.
Loved the location, could walk to most activities near the famous mile. The penthouse was very roomie for the 5 of us and they had everything.

Location, views, spaciousness of penthouse and super-responsive owners

The truth is I got a real bad rash from the sheets. My concern was they where not clean to begin with. Second, I've never seen so many warning signs about smoking. Everywhere you turned there was a sign. It made me terribly uncomfortable. The long winded emails are also ridiculous. These people should spend the night in a 5 star hotel to understand customer service. I guess you take a bit of a risk being in the condo rental business.
Nice Condo, well maintained and decorated. The location was very nice, close to all the places I go to or visit.

My biggest complaint was that they counted the infants in our party as paying adults. It changed our travel plans considerably as we were going to split the cost of the condo between eight adults (we had 3 babies under 2yrs). Space wasn't an issue, there would've been plenty of room for everyone. Not sure why they decided to count infants in the total amount of people allowed in the condo. Also, the owners were a little overzealous about sending so many emails prior to our stay (4 within three days after making the reservation. Two of which were emails asking why I hadn't responded yet to their previous emails). It was a little bit of information overload and it gave me a little bit of anxiety about staying there and doing everything right to get my security deposit back. But I completely understand that The owners just want responsible, clean, respectful people in their very nice condo. There was no issue with us getting our security deposit back. We had a great stay. I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling to Chicago. We will definitely be staying here again!
We stayed at the Grand Plaza in penthouse 5303. We were in town through the weekend for a wedding. The space was great for the whole family. Everything was very well-stocked. All the comforts of home. Loved having a kitchen that was fully equipped with everything I could want. It was great to have a fridge for leftovers and light groceries so we weren't eating every meal out. The penthouse was absolutely gorgeous with incredible views of the city. Would highly recommend this. We will be staying here again!

Nothing bad about it!!
The view from the walkout balcony was stunning. We loved to relax by the cozy fireplace on the cool evenings. The apartment spotless, beautifully decorated and was fully equipped with everything we needed. It was close to everything, (right next to the supermarket)! Made for a perfect visit to Chicago!!

In town for the Chicago Toy & Game Inventors' convention, the two bedroom Penthouse at the Grand Plaza with its astonishing views from every room, provided the three of us with a supremely comfortable, relaxing and unique home from home for the week.

What's not to like? Rarely is anything perfect, but this was darn near! One thing I would tend to agree with from another review - there were numerous signs around the condo that stated what NOT to do or the deposit would be forfeited (specifically about it being a non-smoking unit). While I appreciate their desire to ensure it was understood, it was a little overkill.
The Penthouse at Grand Plaza (specifically #5301) was fantastic! My daughter wanted to travel to Chicago to find a wedding dress, but there would be 7-8 of us. This was by far the best option vs. 2 hotel rooms. Three full baths, room to sleep 8, a full kitchen, great location, awesome view - and we were all staying in one place! The kitchen was fully stocked with ample utensils, drinkware and dinnerware. Beds were comfortable, bathrooms were large and entire place was immaculate. The owners went out of their way to ensure our stay was better than expected. This is one place that I will not only book again, but will highly recommend to others !!!

Could have used an extra bed, there is plenty of room in the 2nd bedroom for another bed.
Location was perfect. Kitchen was well stocked with absolutely everything you could possibly need. You just needed to buy fresh ingredients from the supermarket on the corner. The building was generally quiet so sleeping was not a problem.

AMAZING View Clean Perfect amenities Friendly staff Perfect location, close to all the bars, restaurants and shops (Michigan Ave just 5 min walk away) Get the best out of your stay and live like a royal!

Lots of instructions about what not to do. It felt like trust was in very short supply.
Rooms, location, stunning views, seriously comfy beds, and a great experience.

This place is even better than what it looks like on the website. Awesome views and perfect location. Only problem is you don't even want to go out, you just want to enjoy the view. Great restaurants and cafe's within meters and supermarket on ground level. Great place!

It's having everything you have at home with a view.

My family and I have come to the US many times since the last 5 years and we have stayed at various service apartments at various cities. My kids keep on saying this is the best apartment we have stayed so far – the views, the cleanliness, places to visit nearby, the food, the people……..and we think that Chicago is much better than LA, SF, Seattle, New York City, Miami, DC, etc. We will certainly come back to Chicago and certainly to this penthouse again
