Ashton Apartments are okay. The location is great, right next to Mitsuwa, the Japanese mall and grocery, and just a couple blocks from I-90. It's not far from O'Hare, and while you hear the planes frequently, they're a distant rumble. It's… Full Review ▶

I've lived here for a few years and have watched the place degrade since it switched hands from Archstone to Ashton and then even more so when the apartments were converted to condos. People aren't exaggerating too much when they talk… Full Review ▶

The apartment is fine in general - unless you happen to have a problem. Then you find out how poorly you can be treated. I lived there for 3 years and paid over 22,000 in rent. That seems to be a… Full Review ▶
