Resident · 2008
I like to start with the negative points first, to get them out of the way. First off the rent is a little steep but then again all the decent apartments in the area are, and these are pretty good size for what youre getting. I am currently paying almost $1000 for a 1 bedroom on the seventh floor, which has a nice view of the lake and of the Chicago downtown buildings. The elevator has some problems now and again, sometimes you have to press the button several times for it to come, but it does come. If you absolutely must have a parking lot spot, you will find yourself on the waiting list for some time most likely. however, it has never taken me more than a few minutes to find street parking within 2 blocks. Usually i find it very very close to the apartment and in very little time. All in all, there is a great view, the receptionist is extremely helpful, the walls are thick and quiet, the neighbors are nice and the area is beautiful. I would not hesitate to recommend the Mayfair, though it has some weak points, they are outweighed by the bright ones. On another quick note, if you would like to come take a look at the apartments and make an appointment to do so, if you would put myself down as the recommendation of how you found this location, i will give you $100 off your rent for the first month.
