Check In
Incredibly stylish and clean place. The bed is very comfy. Amenities are awesome. Always quick to get a reply. Perfect location. Highly recommend!

This location is truly ideal, and with the cafe in the building you can have a nicer coffee in the morning if you desire. The place is actually bigger than the pictures seem! Clean, cute, perfect for the stay. And a smart TV so you can watch your shows if you're too tired to go out.

Great property! Awesome communication and very easy check-in and checkout process!

This condo was lovely. Very stylish. I was traveling for work and wished the internet was a bit stronger and there was more of a workspace but for a vacation this would just be perfect. Loved the lobby of the building and the doormen and women. I needed to add a couple additional nights and it was a breeze.

Great location and very cute place!

These Short Stay units are the only ones I choose when visiting home. I just love them! This one was a bit smaller than the previous I stayed in, but had all the necessary amenities and more for our stay. Can’t wait to return!

Beautifully and professionally managed rental in a very hip building with great amenities (coffee, shampoo...) and an amazing gym.

We stayed in this lovely AirBnB for our anniversary trip to Chicago, and we had an a great weekend. We love to walk and explore, and the location was in the middle of everything for just that. We like to walk more than your average travelers, but we felt that the walks to Navy Pier, Magnificent Mile, Millennium Park, and even to Second City in Old Town were reasonable, even in cold November weather. The host was very easy to communicate with prior to and during our stay, left wonderful dining recommendations, and provided a clean, safe place for us to stay on our trip. Check-in and out processes were very simple, and the building is beautiful. We highly recommend this apartment for your stay in the city!

Location, location, location. This apartment was perfectly positioned for my husband and I to run and explore the city of Chicago. We found great restaurants in the area too! Short Stay's place is beautifully decorated and the gym downstairs in phenomenal. We would highly recommend staying here!

Very cozy space that looks just like the pictures. The location is excellent with a stop for the Red Line just a couple of blocks away and walking distance from Magnificent Miles with all its shops and restaurants. There are convenient markets on the same block. Communication with the hosts was prompt and efficient and they took care of our needs and answered all of our questions. Great stay overall, would recommend and would stay again!

Nicely decorated and the location is amazing!!

Very tidy and lovely AirBnb apartment equipped with everything you need. A good bed and very nice bathroom and shower. ShortStay is a great host and I had a great stay!

The rooftop is great! Super convenient that foxtrot is connected right down stairs!

The place was as described. The place is clean and a very short walk to Michigan Ave. Foxtrot Market located in next door to the place is a great place to grab a simple breakfast and coffee.

Great location in a historic building and I had a nice stay in using this service for the first time.

Apartment was clean and looked exactly like the photos. Hosts were exceptional and communication was prompt and efficient. Apartment is about a 15 minute to great restaurants. As an added bonus, there is a market on the first floor. Excellent cappuccinos, tasty food and full liquor selection. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to Chicago.

My daughter and I had a great time. The place is near everything. The hosts were kind and attentive to our needs. Parking is an issue. I ended up paying a lot of money to park my car. Trains are a couple of blocks away. They have a nice cafe and a market in the building. Wholefoods is around the corner. All in all it’s a great place to stay at.

Amazing place to stay in a great location! Would definitely recommend and would stay here again! Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend!!

In the heart of Chicago north downtown. Close to CTA red line. Walking distance to the magnificent mile and the Chicago river. Perfect place to enjoy the heart of the windy city. The place is clean, cozy, well organized and well decorated. Will definitely return next time.

There was an issue with a prior guest in this listing so we did not end up staying this listing, but another one of Short Stay's properties at the same address. We appreciated that they still made sure to take care of us. The other listing we stayed at was right next to this listing, and was very tasteful. We didn't think the street noise was too loud. Note that check-in/check-out times are very solid.

Great location If you don’t mind walking a little. It has many places within walking distance. Place was clean and as pictured. The roof top is a great perk to staying here. I would definitely book again if I’m ever back in Chicago.

Loved everything about staying here! Loved the space, the quick responses, and location. By far the best Airbnb experience we’ve had. Hope to be back very soon! Highly recommend staying here!

Beautiful place with easy access to the city. A short walk to Michigan Avenue and an overall fun, stylish building.

Great place for two. The rooftop/chill area was priceless.

Really nice appartment for ouy short stay in Chicago, with a perfect location! Self-check-in and check-out was really fluid with all information provided in advance in a very precise way. A bit noisy however

Super cute spot and the hosts were above and beyond with their clear communication and check in/out instructions. I loved the little market downstairs!

The unit is wonderful and very comfortable. The amenities are top notch with a Foxtrot for snacks and an awesome gym downstairs with weights and a boxing ring (you can even take included workout classes)! I'd definitely recommend this place due to all the above plus being close to buses to get around the city quickly.

Livly's place was clean, stylish and was everything I wanted for my stay. She really thought of everything you might need when staying at an Airbnb. The bed was ultra comfortable, the bathroom and shower were perfect and I loved the modern touches like Amazon Alexa, Roku, and tons of outlets for electronics. The location was great and I loved the Foxtrot connected to the building for morning coffee and late night cravings. I will definitely consider staying here the next time I'm in town for work!

A lovely place to stay for both business and vacation in Chicago. The apartment was beautifully renovated and tastefully furnished, and is in a perfect location to access all major parts of the city, being close to red, blue, and brown lines. The building itself is great, with a gym and doorman. I will definitely stay here again!

Ok, so I finally got a chance to stay here, and it is a great place! Beautifully decorated (I am head over heels for the fridge!) with awesome amenities. There was a slight issue with check-in, as the key fob was not working properly, but the host helped me rectify that situation swiftly. There was also the issue of cat hair on the living room upholstery (particularly the throw pillows on the sofa) that triggered an allergic reaction and resulted in my having to vacate the space sooner than planned and make other lodging arrangements. The host was really nice about it and offered to re-clean, but by that point, my allergies were so out of control that I couldn’t breathe. Nonetheless, I would totally stay in one of their spaces again. Excellent communicator and super friendly!

Amazing stay! Great communication from the host!

So, I haven’t stayed here yet, but I will be today. I had initially scheduled a trip to Chicago two weeks ago, but because of issues with my flight being delayed a million times (thanks, United ), my trip plans were derailed. However, Livly was so nice and understanding about this FUBAR situation into which I was thrust, and helped me with rescheduling for my impending stay. By this interaction alone, I feel confident that my stay will exceed any and all of my expectations!

Great spot! Clean and very stylish.

It was a lovely stay right in the heart of downtown.

Beautiful space and building. Easy to checkin. Loved the location

What an incredible stay! Absolutely lovely, clean space. Perfect location. Would love to be back!

Excellent location a few blocks away from any attraction that you would want. Lovely building and space, all amenities were clean and easily available. Communication with Livly was prompt and to the point.

Great apartment with great style! My husband and I travelled with our tween daughter and she slept on the sofa... plenty of room. Was nice to have the Foxtrot market downstairs. We took advantage of that several times. And location wise, it is easy to walk lots of places or take the Red Line train which is just a couple blocks away. We enjoyed our stay.

This space was outstanding. The photos do not do it justice. Livly was one of the best Airbnb experiences I have ever had. Honestly, even better than most hotels. Every question was answered within minutes. The decor and room exceeded my expectations. even entry and check - in was seamless. There is nothing that you cannot get with these guys. THANK YOU LIVLY !

Livly was very accommodating. The room was just as beautiful as you can imagine. Per usual, they were extremely responsive. Location is great for all kinds of travel !

a great bnb at a great value

This location was perfect! Only a few miles from everything we wanted to do! Walking distance to some great restaurants! Super clean and stylish place to stay. We enjoyed playing the board games in the unit itself. Plan to stay again this summer!

Livly's place is very stylish and a great location. It was perfect for our short weekend visit in the city. We would definitely stay there again in the future.

Great space in a great location. Awesome shower and fun kitchen space with great utensils to make just about anything you want. There is a Whole Foods a block away so it’s easy to shop and cook so you don’t have to eat out every meal. Great location, tons of cool places to eat and shop.
