Manilow Suites At North Harbor Tower
Reviewed 8 September 2016

This summer my husband and I relocated from Northwest Arkansas to Chicago for work. Our plan was to stay at Manilow suites while we searched for a house to buy. It was a HUGE adjustment moving to the big city and I can’t say enough about how much we felt right at home at Manilow suites. From the moment we arrived (at midnight after a 12 hour drive with pets) we were met with phenomenal customer service. David at the front desk catered to us like royalty and assisted with our unload down to the very last bag.

The building has absolutely everything you might need!! The laundry facilities were always clean and available, there was always workout equipment available in the gym. We brought our mountain bikes with us and were promptly provided with 2 spots in the bike room which was most convenient. The dry cleaners in the building did a great job with my husband’s dry cleaning with lightning fast service. We had several types of deliveries during our stay and there was never an issue receiving or sending packages via USPS, FedEx or UPS.

We continued to experience fantastic customer service throughout our 2.5 month stay. Kudo’s to Jose at the front door, he was our absolute favorite and deserves a huge high 5!! All the small extras made the stay that much more special….Coffee with snacks most mornings in the lobby, ATM machine on property, business center with printer available, Hi-Speed WiFi was actually Hi-Speed with zero outages during our entire stay!!!, extremely secure well lit immaculate garage, grocery store in the building and a Marianos within a 5 min walk!! Access to the lakefront trail and walking distance to Navy Pier. A stickler and cleanliness, I was so thrilled with the apartment cleaning team, the definitely did not disappoint!

Each request and need was addressed and accommodated quickly and completely. I simply cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay was at Manilow Suites. It made our transition from small town to big city seem like a vacation! Truly a “Home away from Home”

We leased a 2 bedroom and a one bedroom apartment for our family from Manilow Suites and had an excellent experience. From the moment of getting our enquiry, Miriam and her staff were responsive and helpful, answering all our questions and offering advice. The building, North Harbor Tower, was in a wonderful location, just a short walk to Millenium Park and State Street. The shop located in the apartment building was well stocked, and a Mariano's was close by. Plus Eggy's, a diner serving delicious brunches. The apartment building front staff made us so welcome, it really added to our experience. There was an indoor pool that we used almost daily, perfect in December! The views from both apartments were amazing: city view and overlooking the sweep of Lakeshore Drive, stunning. Both were clean and spacious and very comfortable. We needed more place settings, which were provided quickly, Miriam's attentiveness didn't waver throughout our stay. We loved North Harbor Tower, highly recommend Manilow Suites and plan to stay with them again.

As I understand it, Manilow suites are predominantly short term corporate lets, but can sometimes accommodate vacation rentals. We rented an apartment from them for 10 days over Christmas for a family get together. The apartment and service were absolutely first class: I would highly recommend them.

The location for the apartment was perfect: my sister lives in the North Loop and it was a short 10 minute walk (or 5 minute taxi on bad weather days) to her apartment plus the various shops, restaurants, bars, cinemas, entertainment etc in that area. Within the apartment building was a small but well stocked grocery store, and the superb Marianos (plus a couple of excellent restaurants: Eggy's particularly recommended for brunch) was just a 5 minute walk away.

Views from the apartment were superb and it was furnished to a very high standard. Wifi was excellent and high speed. The cable TV selection was good too.

The pool was excellent - my kids were in there most days. Plenty of space for fun or for swimming lengths (and a section roped off for the serious swimmers).

The Manilow Suites staff were incredibly helpful: sourcing additional plates, cutlery etc for our Christmas dinner within hours of our request; making the whole booking and check in/out process as smooth as possible; helping us with a late check-out to cope with the snow storm that hit the day we left Miriam was always available and helpful anytime we needed her. The door staff were also super helpful: looking after luggage for us on check-out day; lending us carts for the Christmas shop to Mariano's; helping us in with our luggage.

I can't thank Manilow Suites, and Miriam, enough for making our family Christmas so special. If you are vacationing in Chicago, and they have a short term vacation let available, I would highly recommend them. The cost was similar to two rooms in a hotel, but we had a kitchen, dining and lounge area for relaxation in the evenings after the children had gone to bed. The absolute perfect location for downtown Chicago too.

Room Tip: Views to the south are stunning, looking down the lakeshore.

We are a family of 5: my husband, my 3 daughters and I and we were living in Chicago the past 5 months at North Harbor Tower. The experience of living in an apartment leased by Manilow suites was the best decision we could take. The building is in an excellent location, close to everything: parks, buses, shopping, museums, universities, downtown... etc. The 3-bedroom apartment was amazing. Everything worked perfect and when we needed any help from Manilow, they were 100% willing to help us very quickly. Everyone in the building were very cordial and always helping in any doubt. Our maid Lidia was spectacular, made us stay even better. I should also mention the beautiful view from the building: direct to the Lake and Millennium Park. Better impossible!. We highly recommend staying here. Thanks to all people who works there!!!

Overall, I had a very pleasant experience with Manilow Suites. Their level of client service is very high. I needed to secure corporate housing very unexpectedly and last minute. The folks at Manilow Suites did an excellent job helping me identify a property and securing it quickly.

Each step in the process was well-communicated and timely. A nice bonus was receiving their custom app which connected me to the surrounding community and provide a lot of helpful information related to my stay.

The property itself was well-cared for and well-situated. The views from Unit 1211 were spectacular -- one of the best views of Chicago's lakefront and Millennium Park. The unit, itself, had comfortable well-appointed furniture and an attentive staff.

Overall, I'd highly recommend the property, Unit 1211, and Manilow Suites services without reservation. Thank you!
