With Chicago’s many neighborhoods, living like a local can be tough, especially since many of our best hotels are downtown off the Magnificent Mile. But, with more options now —it’s easier than ever to explore our vast and vibrant neighborhoods and actually live like a local with a hotel-like option while staying in the city. If you’re looking to check out Chicago’s north-side neighborhood, made famous during its heyday when wealthy Chicagoans made Uptown their glitzy, nighttime entertainment destination—not to mention, it’ll give you that chance to check out the hangout of notorious gangster Al Capone.
The FLATS are revitalizing the neighborhood once again—buying up several buildings like the one at 4875 N. Magnolia Ave. –where these short stays take place. This historic building from 1924, is absolutely stunning and just steps from the exciting entertainment district. When not exploring Uptown’s theater districts of yesteryear or sampling Argyle’s many Korean restaurants, you’ll find this fully-furnished cozy apartment has everything you need for your stay—posh and contemporary furniture by CB2, a fully functional kitchen for nights in, free Wi-Fi, In-unit laundry and a 24-hour fitness center. Rates start at just $80 per night. To book a FLATS short stay, visit www.flatschicago.com.
