Reviews for Chicago Yacht Club - Monroe Station
Great Location - Great Dockmaster - BUT..., 2015-09-08
Captain: , Marathon, Florida (110)

John Porter, Dockmaster, was so accommodating and made the marina side of our stay delightful. However, the Club side was a great disappointment. In five days, not a single member spoke to us, service was marginal and seating selections certainly communicated that they could not have cared less about us being there and enjoying their club. So VERY different from all of our experiences with clubs all along the Loop. Do yourself a favor - get into Columbia YC, if they have space!



Great location, 2015-06-15
Captain: , Dunedin, FL (6484)

Had some problem communicating with CYC by phone, called day ahead to arrange wall spot, next day no one knew anything. But we had ample room on the wall, close to everything along Chicago waterfront. Due to reciprical agreement, enjoyed meal in CYC dining room. Wi-Fi signal was weak along wall, but the price for wall space was right & we had access to great showers / restrooms.

2015-06-15 update: stayed on the docks a couple days, then had to move due to NOOD races. Dockmaster John very helpful, club accomodating, but in addition to Yacht Club & AYC membership cards, you will need letter of introduction from your home club. Location better than nearby DuSable Harbor, closer to subway, Loop, theaters.



Great Location to see the town, 2012-10-29
Captain: , Detroit (647)

Can't beat the CYC's location. Right out the front is Grant Park and then a few short blocks to Michigan Ave and a host of shops and restaurants. Always one of our favorite spots to stay. There is a bit of chop in the harbor if the wind is from the southeast to south. Best to contact the dockmaster by phone.

Captain: , Maryland Yacht Club, Pasadena Md (81)

Stayed here in Sept 2010 $2/ft right down town. It is a little rolly when the wind is out of the east. Nice docks and easy access to the city



Excellent Classic Club, 2007-09-24
Captain: , Houston (59)

YCA receprosity very welcoming and great restaurant. Right in the middle of downtown.
