I really enjoyed my stay at Helen's place. Everything was as described. Helen's communication was great and she had plenty of great tips for places to check out - both around her place and around Chicago. I would definitely stay here again.

I had a great time in Helen’s place. It was close to downtown and there were a lot of good cafes and restaurants close to her house. She is an artist and her house has lots of beautiful paintings everywhere. The room was clean and quiet. Also, Her cat is nice and friendly.

Staying in Chicago at Helen and Jeff's place was a great experience. They are both kind and hospitable with open communication. The location was very central to downtown and the easy to use subway line. Can't wait to visit again. Go CUBS/SOX Go.
