Pretty good, but not a great deal for one person

The building is well maintained and no major issues

Algonquin

Cold air comes through the windows, so the apt. doesn’t stay heated.
Management is responsive and nice, but they don’t follow through most of the time.
The first floor always smells like marijuana.
The apartment itself is nice and close to Whole Foods and the bus.

Great

In front of Regents, so still close to a large law school population.
The gym is only located in one of the Algonquin buildings, and it's really bad.

Good apartment, terrible management

The apartment itself is very nice - good location, good appliances and generally well laid out. Unfortunately, the management (MAC Apartments) is so bad that the frustrations of dealing with them outweighs the benefits of the apartment. It took me six months to obtain full access to the building (functional key fob + name in intercom) due to MAC's incompetence and general unresponsiveness. Our building's laundry card machine has been "pending maintenance" for three months. So long as nothing ever goes wrong in the apartment (unlikely, given MAC's track record), it's a nice place, but if something goes wrong, good luck ever getting MAC to respond to it in a timely manner.

Algonquin Review

Algonquin is a really good value for a 1BR that has been renovated within the last 7 years. Mac is kind of annoying to deal with, but you only have so many options in Hyde Park, and it's been a lot better than I was anticipating at the outset. Water is included in rent, and gas (heat) is capped at $40/month, which is really nice in the winter. It's next to the Metra to get downtown, buses to UChicago and downtown, and Lake Shore Drive. It's also close to Regents, which is where a decent amount of law students live, so there's a social group right across the street. Street parking is decently easy if you're not driving somewhere every day and know how to parallel park. Definitely a good building for 1L year.

Apartment Overview

Great if you want to live near Regents but don't want to pay the Regent's price tag. Also has better appliances and higher quality hardware than Regents.

Kenwood Reviews

I prefer the short commute to school to living somewhere I'd have to wake up earlier. But HP is a little quiet, so depends on what you're looking for. More restaurants and shopping options are being added really quickly right now so that's a pro (Whole Foods coming soon!) but it's definitely different than living in a neighborhood in/closer to the Loop.
Hyde Park is on the rise if you like gentrified, bougie neighborhoods. There are more fancy restaurants coming to the neighborhood as UChicago bought out 53rd street. It's a good neighborhood for a college experience but I am speaking as a formal student. It's unclear how non-university affiliated folks feel about the changes as there is sadly not much interaction between the University and the rest of the community.
Hyde Park is extremely boring. I live here because the school is here and the commute is easy. There are very few good restaurants and no nightlife whatsoever. Luckily, getting downtown is cheap and easy. I've never felt unsafe during the daytime, but I certainly don't go walking around at night.
The neighborhood feels safe overall, as I live right on the border with Hyde Park. There is a dearth of businesses (stores, restaurants, bars) in the area, but that is true for all of Hyde Park. Proximity to the Law School is the best part of where I live.
My building is a 5 min walk to Whole Foods and 12 min walk to Target. Hyde Park is getting more restaurants and bars, but I wish there were better options. It is nice to be close to my friends and close to campus though.
I have never had any problems with the neighborhood. Plenty of transit options, also gives with DIVVYbike stations. Lots of good food nearby and overall a quiet place. Many students and University professionals!
For groceries, options are Wholefoods, Target and Hyde Park produce; no supermarkets.
Closest pharmacy is a 10min walk away.
Not much going on at all. Closest place for restaurants/bars is 53rd Street, which is about a 10-15 min walk.
