I stayed here for five months and found it the perfect location to get to almost any attraction, shops or restaurants. Anything not within walking distance is easily accessible via the subway station or bus stops which are within a few hundred metres from the apartments. The apartment was well furnished and offered ample space and is very secure. Would...

Stayed 3 nights in MDA city apartments. Excellent location: 20-30 minute walk or short Uber ride to many attractions (such as Field museum, Art Institute, restaurants, fast food places, bars etc). Has kitchen & laundry facilities etc.

This is a really nice little block of apartments in the heart of Chicago. Close to everything. Around the corner from Intelligentsia coffee which I would so far so is the best coffee I've had in the city so far. Secure and clean. My place was furnished for me by V-Suites. I had a one bedroom on the 21st floor....

We were here for a buddy's bachelor party. The location was incredibly central, within 15-20 mins walking of many bars/restaurants in downtown Chicago. Clean, nice concierge too. Easy taxi and public transportation access. There was a tiny (juliette style) balcony you can walk out too, but really, all it's really for is for smokers to smoke outside. It's not big...

My family (me, hubby, and two kids ages 20 and 17) just returned from a fabulous visit to Chicago. We booked our six-night stay at MDA Chicago City Apartments and couldn't have been more pleased. The staff at Leading Apartments was very helpful and -- for about the same price as a downtown hotel (there is no hotel/motel tax when...

Many good things and a few considerations. The location is great. Take train from Ohare or Midway to two blocks away and then walk everywhere. Building has great summer amenities on roof, BBQ, hot tub, game room, and dining. There is a theater for your DVDs that can be reserved, business room, and simple gym. We had a two bedroom...

We were in Chicago Sept 11th through 13th 2009 for a Cubs game and the U2 concert at Soldier Field. Four of us were traveling together and really enjoyed our stay. We found the MDA city apartments to be a perfect location and also very reasonably priced. We were on the 19th floor and had a two bedroom, two bath...

We spent 5 nights at MDA and were very pleased with the accommodation. Our apartment was on the 18th floor with some nice views. We had a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment and it had a fully equipped kitchen as well. The apartment was very spacious and modern and it had everything we needed from hairdryer to wireless internet connection. The location...

Reviewed 16 February 2009

We loved the MDA CITY APARTMENTS, on the corner of Lake and Wabash, where the El train rounds a corner at the northwest side of the building. This means that if you’re in 905 or other rooms ending in a 5 facing west, you’ll probably hear the squealing of brakes consistently until about 1am. Yes, even five floors above the...

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
