Russ's place is ideal. It is so close to the blue line and in a really cool part of River West. The roof top view is another perk. And the kindness with which Russ hosts is unbeatable.

The location is so great. When you get off the blue line cta, it's only couple blocks away from his place and the neighborhood is so quiet It's not far from the city so that's also good. Russ and Samantha (doggie) is very welcoming Five stars overall!
