1. The loft escape in Avondale
Do city-living right with a stay in this super sleek loft-conversion, replete with exposed brickwork and modernist furniture design. Truly aesthetic ways of blending urban cool with indoor comfort. Make the most of good weather with a leisurely breakfast out on the rooftop desk or, if the temperature has dropped (this is Chicago, people) eat the first meal of the day at the attractive wooden breakfast bar. Either way, a top start to the day. 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. Great times all round.
