Great check-in experience95% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

The Blues Brothers Express is close to The Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, McCormick Place, China Town, Grant/Millennium Park & Lake Michigan. The neighborhood is great and only a block from one of Chicago's largest public transit hubs. The space is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. It's rumored that the building, built in 1890, was used by Al Capone to facilitate his South Side operations. - ***PLEASE READ-->Space is next to the El Tracks (Train) and does get loud.

That train is no joke! Don’t stay here if you’re a light sleeper or need a ton of rest or are staying for more than a couple days. There’s a definite Blues Brothers vibe being literally 4 feet from the rumbling train that zooms by every 3 to 10 minutes all day and most night. Tha…

Place was great, small for a single traveler like myself. Wish I would have brought a chromecast or something to take value of the tv provided.

The apartment is conveniently located near all of the big attractions. We were able to walk just about everywhere. The pizza place downstairs is fantastic and there are several other restaurants and shops nearby.

Great location! Charlie was amazing at quickly responding to any needs. Train tracks are right by the window, but I’m actually a heavy sleeper so it didn’t bother me. It kind of added to the Chicago feel!

Great small space for one or two travelers. Close to multiple bars/restaurants, and Grant Park just a couple blocks away. Roosevelt train station within 1 block, along with a couple coffee spots.

The owner warned about the El train but I guess I didn’t realize it was about 3 feet away from my bed. I had two completely sleepless nights.
