Nearby The Buckingham
It was the perfect location for a summer in Chicago. It was only a 10-15 minute walk to my building every day for work, right across from Grant Park and Millennium Park, and it was easy for people visiting me to find and drive to. What did you like most: The rooftop is a great time! I also liked the free popcorn every week and the rooftop party that management held at the beginning of the summer. What did you like least: The El is right by the building, but you get used to the sound after a few days.
Sufficient for the summer. (Only there for an internship) What did you like: Minimal paperwork and move-in/move-out process. What did you like less: Noise from subway next to my room.
I had a great experience this summer in the Buckingham. It was a perfect location in the South Loop for my job as well as having fun. A good restaurant or bar was never more than a brief walk away and we could easily take an Uber to any of the other neighborhoods or beaches. The building itself was fantastic and they had the best staff. They were always very kind and courteous and I loved seeing them every day. Rooms were spacious and modern and having access to the top-floor lounge and other amenities was a very nice perk. What did you like: I liked the staff and the view the most. We were fortunate enough to live on the top floor and the thing I miss the most is the view. It is a great view overlooking the Buckingham fountain and Lake Michigan. You're just a brief walk from Soldier field and the Aquarium if you head South and Grant Park is straight ahead and then the beaches up North aren't too bad of a stroll either. Overall I miss the view from our living room the most and the friendly staff.
