Check In
Great bar, coffee shop, and diner within the building. Fantastic gym and pool. Great place for dogs - Montrose Dog Beach and Puptown Dog Park just a short walk away

Great view inside and out! I like their design and how chic/modern they look. Also super easy check in and awesome location.

Great view, great service, nice environment, seemingly safe area, easily accessible, very close to the subway station, very convenient! Only thing I wasn’t thrilled about was that I couldn’t enjoy a cigar on the rooftop due to no smoking rules

Just as cute as the pictures, and close to night life!

This was by far the best place I have been lucky enough to stay in so far with my travels. It was so easy to check-in/check-out, completely no-stress, and felt truly like a home away from home. It was luxurious but was still within our budget, it felt more safe and secure than a hotel, they were so communicative and explained everything so well, we didn’t even really need to worry about a thing. We honestly can’t wait till we can visit here again. Would recommend planning your trip to be longer if you want to explore outside more because it’ll be hard to want to leave the building. Definitely download the parking app for an extended lot with-in a 7-8 min walk either direction, and utilize public transport, or walk!

This is a good AirBnB, conveniently located, and in a very cool building

Such a great space! Wonderful value for money, good location, incredibly comfortable bed & nice shower. Will be staying here again the next time I’m in Chicago for sure

The most amazing airbnb I have stayed in. It is close to all the attractions by car. Parking was a bit of a hassle but not a dealbreaker. Very cool lobby & amenities. The space was very thoughtfully put together. Do not hesitate to book!

Great place. Very cute! Host responds very fast

Super adorable unit & great building amenities.

This place is lovely. I spent 5 nights here on a work trip. Very clean. Excellently decorated with stylish simplistic elements. Great natural light and nice indoor lighting. Kitchen was well-stocked with supplies so I was able to make my work per diem go even further by going to the grocery store and cooking meals at the flat. I found myself splitting my time between the loft and the pull-out couch. Bed in loft was SOO comfy and cozy (loft space maybe a bit tight for larger person)- perfect for when you need a good night’s rest. The pull-out couch was great for nights when I wanted to fall asleep in front of the TV and could sleep in the next day. The gym and pool on the basement level are great- though I wished the pool were a bit more heated. Gym had great equipment and was decent-sized. Rooftop lounge area is again, decorated in a perfect simplistic stylish, and charming way. Lobby area is a great common space to lounge or work. The coffee shop is great, and there’s also a bar and a diner. My only issue was a noise complaint that I contacted my hosts about (it was between 2-2:45am that the noises woke me up so of course I didn’t hear back immediately) It sounded like people were moving furniture in and drilling things to their walls... In the middle of the night. Some people are just super inconsiderate nightowls. I would absolutely stay here again, and again. It was perfect for me as a non-driver and bldg felt very safe. Close to transportation, walkable to various shops, (Target, Mariano’s) If I ever move to Chicago I’ll be looking to lease in this building for sure.

Really lovely, stylish space in a fun building! Hosts were super responsive to small issues (e.g. a missing blanket) and addressed inquiries right away in a friendly and professional manner. Neighbors were a bit noisy on our last night, but otherwise the building was beautifully maintained and quiet. Very convenient for any uptown adventures and really close to the L for getting around the city. Thank you, Short Stay!

Great place and close to transportation

A beautiful space, looks exactly like the photos, in an apartment complex with fabulous amenities. Hosts were exceptionally communicative, responsive, and focused on providing anything needed for a wonderful stay.

Loved the location, I have never stayed this far north in Chicago. The area was trending with historic landmarks in walking distance, 25 minute walk to Wrigley Field. But what was really awesome was the complex had a bar downstairs, a rooftop lounge, a coffee shop, and a trending dinner next door that served amazing food. Definitely recommended this spot. Regarding Short Stay, I will absolutely look for their airbnbs in the future when traveling back to Chicago because they provided so much detail and ease with checking in process, and they respond promptly. That is not very common.

Very accurate description. Loft bedroom area was a bit Scary as i hit my head trying to get off the bed. I ended up sleeping on the sofa bed the entire trip. Great area and loved the coffee shop, bar, and diner downstairs! Very clean place with great amenities!

Such a great place to get away! Great environment throughout the building and the apartment was so nice! The loft bed is such a fun idea and really opens up the space.

I loved how stylish it was and how we had access to the amazing rooftop lounge, pool, patio, etc. The lobby was really cool too, I just loved the whole aesthetic of the place. It was also really close to the red line which was really convenient.

I really enjoyed our stay-place was convenient and well priced.

Great location for my groups needs, as well as a great decor.. the hot water sometimes took upwards of ten minutes to heat up. Older building and plumbing so I’m assuming that’s the issue. Apartment only came with enough large bath towels for two people despite the unit being advertised as a maximum of four people. Ended up having to to wash and dry towels twice during our stay. No real issues with anything else!

The place was really nice and the location was great, super close to downtown. The building seemed a bit old because of how slow the elevators were which was kind of a big deal for me but that’s only because I hate elevators, other than that everything was great. I’ll recommend

Clean and comfortable. It was so convenient to my son. I thought it was a great value and will definitely stay here again if it's available.

I felt right at home in this place. It’s clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. It has a great location, too! So close to the Lawrence train stop that you can easily zip into town on the L. Since the couch was right below the AC, it felt wonderful to sit there after a long day out and about in the warm weather. It was so comfy, in fact, I ended up sleeping on it! The unit is a nice short walk to the lake and you can see how close you are from the side window. The rooftop area in the building is really nice- a great lounging area with a fantastic view. Make sure you stop up there before you leave. I would definitely stay here again if I am in Chicago!

Very convenient to the red line. Make sure to check out the rooftop deck!

I really enjoyed my stay at Mellow Melody. The place looks exactly as pictured and was so clean and cozy. The location was not too far from the magnificent mile either! Great place to stay if you’re visiting Chicago from out of town, or are simply looking to do a staycation.

This space is clean and modern with a few fun stylish flares. The amenities in the building are great! Coffee shop, bar, rooftop hangout area. Location is close to a red line station, and it’s also easy to get an Uber anywhere. We selected this space largely because there were two of us and we wanted two beds, which it has if you use the sofa bed. A bit of a surprise to us was how low the ceiling is above the loft, which made it a bit tricky to get up and down from, and it’s not functional for anything other than sleeping. The hosts are helpful and responsive if you have questions.

Mellow Melody is a stylish, adorable, clean loft apartment! The building itself is also so neat and we loved having a coffee shop and diner right on the ground level. Perfect place for a Chicago getaway!

Beautiful studio, great location, very clean. The pool and gym in the building are really good. I highly recommend.

We had a great time at this well appointed little studio. The amenities in the building and surrounding area are pretty great.
