Rental deal of the day – a free month’s rent at The Seneca

When we visited The Seneca‘s website yesterday we were greeted by the popup message you see to the right. The offers: a month’s free rent on selected units, and the availability of short-term leases. The website provides a near real-time list of available units, occupancy dates and rent amounts.

The Seneca, a 1920s era landmark hotel just steps from the Mag Mile and lake at 200 E Chestnut, is being converted to luxury studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom, 2-bath apartments.

Apartments boast large living spaces, new kitchens and baths, functional layouts and unusually good closet space. The building has a fitness room, on-site dry cleaners, a spacious sundeck with views of the lake, and is home to two restaurants — Francesca’s and Saloon Steakhouse.

The Seneca is one of our sponsors, and I recently shot the following video tour of a unit with Tina of Waterton Residential.
