Do city living right with a stay in this super sleek loft-conversion, replete with exposed brickwork and modernist furniture design. Make the most of good weather with a leisurely breakfast out on the rooftop desk or, if the temperature has dropped, eat the first meal of the day at the attractive wooden breakfast bar. Located on the border of Avondale and Irving Park, visitors can take advantage of the free garage parking space before jumping on the Kennedy Expressway to downtown or O’Hare.
In cities across the globe you’ll find quirky, one-off places to stay thanks to Airbnb. But Chicago, more than most, is really on the money when it comes to genuinely individual properties. Where else, for example, could you hope to stay in a Gold Coast mansion designed and built by the leading architects of Modernism? Let alone the iconic former home of an eccentric stone sculpture collector. Chicago has both, and a few more low-key options thrown in for good measure. And, rest assured, you’ll find properties dotted throughout the city, from the tourist hotspots to favourite local hangouts. Whether you’re here for the weekend or planning a longer staycation, there’s sure to be something that’s perfect for you.
