Check In
The spot is wonderful. It is smack in the middle of downtown. Local food and rents are nothing but a walk or quick UBER/LYFT away. For my first time being in Chicago it was wonderful.

Location ideal. Space is fantastic. Great building amenities and vibes. Would definitely stay again.

Great location. Clean and nicely decorated, beautiful view of chicago. Host were great and had very efficient communication skills.

This unit at short stay is a great way to experience walkable Chicago. I stayed for a work trip, but was able to see many unique spots just a few blocks away. Clean, thoughtful, and fun I'll landlubber stay here the next time I return.

Great location, restaurants/bars, and entertainment all outside the door (which is difficult to walk out of with the view). Great stay!

This home is perfect! Great views, great location and super cozy/stylish digs. If you're looking to be in the heart of downtown, close to shopping and great food, this is your place!

This place is PERFECT. We loved the location, the amenities, the coffee shop lobby, and all of the friendly dogs/neighbors! It smells divine in the lobby. As for the unit itself, all of the extra touches were fantastic and the kitchen is fully stocked. You could make a holiday feast in there! The space is beautiful. The views are great and parking was easy (right across the street). The bed is very comfy. The in-unit washing machine was in need of repair during our stay, but the host made arrangements for us to use the washer in a vacant unit down the hall, so that was still convenient. We had an issue with our key cards, but the security help desk gentleman was GREAT - even while I was frustrated. I appreciated his kindness! We would ABSOLUTELY stay here again.

A really nicely done two story bedroom penthouse overlooking downtown Chicago. The secure building has a really nice common area and coffee shop on the first floor. Our interaction in the building with everyone was very friendly. Check in was easy, we were able to pull up to paid street parking that was available along the side of the building to unload and then parked in the garage across the street which was easily managed by an app suggested by the Host. The space itself was the perfect size for us (2 adults and a medium size dog). The walls of windows overlooking the surrounding buildings and the skyline of Chicago were amazing and during the morning, the black out blinds were a nice touch. The kitchen and baths had everything anyone would want in a short stay, the large terrace was ideal for spending time during nice weather. the bed was extremely comfortable and the space was extremely clean. The location is very walkable to most downtown destinations, there are tons of great restaurants in the area and Whole Foods is a few blocks away, Trader Joes a few blocks further from there. I would definitely recommend this space to friends and family.

The location was great and had amazing views. The place was clean, and had all the necessary amenities. I had an issue with the washer and they promptly responded and helped resolve the issue. I highly recommend, and plan to stay here during my next visit to Chicago.

Very nice place, will come back. Excellent view, everything clean.

The stay here was wonderful. The view off the balcony was beautiful at night, the bed was comfy, the decor was stylish, and our hosts left us some extra touches for our anniversary. Sarah and Erica are just the type of hosts that you can be 100% sure will meet and exceed your expectations. I highly recommend this place if you’re looking for a high-end place to spend some time.

I stayed here as a solo traveller visiting the city for the Chicago Marathon. The apartment is great - excellent location and great views from the bedroom and terrace. The hosts were very helpful and responsive. Would definitely stay here again if the opportunity arose.

You cannot ask for a better location, especially for the price. It is walking distance from multiple AMAZING restaurants. The pictures do not do the layout justice, it flows nicely and the interior is modern and stylish. The views are stunning, which was one of the biggest selling points for us. Please be aware that doors slam when shutting and hallway noises can be heard quite clearly from inside the unit. This, however, did not alter the overall quality of our stay in the least and we intend to stay here again when we are in town.

Everything was as described. The apartment was lovely & the gym was great. There were clear instructions communicated via web re: check-in, etc. Only minor complaint was that there were multiple key boxes and it took us a while to find the right one upon check-in.

Clean and cozy place; easy check-in.

Wonderful place! Beautiful view.

Great location. The spacious balcony afforded wonderful views of the city. Appliances were clean and new and the kitchen was well stocked with cookware. When we didn’t visit one of the many restaurants in the area, cooking was a breeze. The bed was cozy and comfy and we both slept well. Overall a good experience and we would look to stay here again in the future.

Great comfy place to stay, and the views are amazing!

This place was amazing. Amazing view, amazing location, amazing on the inside with all the amenities you could ever need. Parking was not an issue there were spots on the street close to the entrance and check in was very easy as well.

Fantastic apartment clean spacious and great location within easy walking distance of all top attractions Mag Mile, Millennium Park, Lake Shore and Lincoln Park. Highly recommend.

Great place. Clean and perfect location. Loved the balcony.

This place was so beautiful. The outside deck with its amazing views were breathtaking! We would definitely recommend this place to anyone. The location is perfect to anything in downtown Chicago.

My Godson and I were very impressed by the home. The balcony is beautiful and the layout is very stylish. Our pup loved the adjacent doggy run ❤️. The upstairs common area was absolutely beautiful and the billiards entertaining. Unfortunately the air conditioning was not functioning at the time we were visiting, but Short Stay did their best to help with the situation. I’m sure it will be up and running in no time! I would recommend this beautiful home just north of the Chicago River

I can’t say enough about on how wonderful Livly’s place is. The location is great, the place was immaculate. The bed is very comfortable. Nice view. The decor is great. And the coffee shop in downstairs isn’t bad either. Book it! You will not be disappointed.

Great stay, great food, and even better people.

Great location and awesome place!! Would definitely recommend!

This place was in a great location. The balcony was an amazing spot to enjoy a glass of wine & take in the views of the skyline.

It’s a great place, great location. We used the terrace and bbqued, it was amazing. I wish we had more days to enjoy it.

This place was way beyond what the pictures showed!! Absolutely beautiful interior and stunning views, you can walk to so many amazing food places near by as well!! Would highly recommend and will book again forsure!!

We loved the location of this airbnb! It was a great starting spot for exploring the city and has great restaurants within walking distance all around. There is a coffee shop in the lobby that was wonderful! The bed is very comfortable and the views from the balcony, windows and on the rooftop are AMAZING! However, the location is pretty noisy inside the building. Anytime someone was in the hall we could hear them and were even woken up in the middle of the night by it. Other than that this was an great stay!

Awesome apartment. Definitely recommend it. Small issue with the fob getting in but host was quick to resolve it.

Great location, very clean, awesome patio

I truly recommend this apartment, one of the best places I’ve ever stay Amazing views and beautiful decor, you just have everything you need to feel as at home. Love it

Beautiful home! AMAZING veranda & view of the city!! We had a wonderful stay & absolutely LOVED our place!! The floor to ceiling windows are just awesome to lay in bed & look out at night! We’ll be back!!

Amazing place with a spectacular view in the perfect location. Anytime I come back to Chicago I plan to stay here.

The apartment was perfect in all ways! Looks just like the pictures and is in the best location. They were great to work with and we had a seamless trip thanks to their outstanding hospitality!

As a guest you will be provided detailed information about the place. You will have everything you could possibly need and more. The service provided was 5star , and the living upscale! The location was perfect and You will have access to all transportation service. The view is beautiful, take advantage of the rooftop. Thanks again Livly’s for making my 1st trip to Chicago one to remember. I look forward to returning soon.

By the best place we have stayed at!! We will definitely be back this summer

Beautiful layout.
