Shomari's place is exactly as described. We stayed for 3 days in order to attend Riot Fest and admired the diversity within his neighborhood! Although a drive from Douglas Park (where we needed to be) Shomari's apartment is within walking distance of the L (Brown Line) as well as an awesome diner, Huddle House, and Dark Knight Coffee. The neighborhood is very family friendly, fairly quiet and close to grocery and other convenience stores! Parking is definitely tricky, so my best advice is to park on one of the surrounding streets that are unmarked with permit signs (no signs = free to park), leave the car there and then use public transit if possible. We had a little trouble at first but were fine once I got more parking info from Shomari, who is also very communicative! :)

Shomari's home was great! It was very close to public transportation and was very easy to get around. The neighborhood itself had a ton of great restaurants and plenty of things to do. Shomari was a great host and checked in with us a couple times throughout our stay. I would highly recommend staying here!

Hi Andrew. I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. Although, some of your complaints seem subjective. I will take all of your feedback as constructive and do a better job so this will not be an issue for future stays. Thanks for your feedback. .

Unfortunately Shomari's place was not up to standard, especially given the price. The apartment was grimy, dusty and dirty and it seemed as though it was only cleaned superficially. The towels were inadequate (the size of hand towels) and the bed linen was dirty. There were some unbearable odours in the apartment. The neighbourhood was also not particularly pleasant and didn't seem very safe. We ended up cancelling halfway through our stay. On the plus side, Shomari was very friendly and helpful. We appreciated that he was willing to refund us for our cancelled nights. It was also not too far a walk from the nearest metro station. Unfortunately we cannot recommend this place in good conscience.

This place was great! It was very clean, quiet, and comfortable. We could not have been more pleased with our stay. Check in was easy, and the treats that welcomed us on the counter were a very delightful surprise! We would definitely stay here again on future trips to Chicago.

The location is great. Walking distance to parks, bakeries, and groceries. Parking can be difficult but not impossible. Communication was excellent. We were sad to leave!

Shomari was a wonderful host. The place was exactly as expected. He offered information about places to visit and even made sure mt dog was having a good time. It was quiet but walkable.

Shomari was an excellent host. His place is in a very nice neighborhood walking distance from the brown line as well as a 24 hour bus. Very easy to access the Airports, downtown Chicago and many other great neighborhoods. Shomari was a very friendly host who was easily accessible if necessary. Thanks for a great stay!
