Default Ultimate crashpad

Tell me what would you like to have in your "ultimate crash pad"

Would you prefer a single family house or an apartment?
TV
Internet
Pool table
Weight room
Laundry room
Price range
Anything else...

This would be around ORD, walking distance from the Blue Line.

Back in 2008 I was in a crash pad in ATL. it was a House about 15 years old, that had been changed around so that it had 6 bedrooms, 3 bath rooms a kitchen and nice living room. Fully furnished, flat screen TV, wireless internet, computer avail in the house as well, two refrigerators, BBQ on the deck, parking for 5 cars, Maid service once a week, nice furnishings, combo locks on each bedroom door, combo lock on the front door, 15 minutes from our company appointed parking lot. It was either 225 or 250 per month... hard to remember. Each room had two beds. When I was there we had two S5 pilots, two Pinnacle pilots, 1 ASA pilot, 1 Skywest FA (male), 1 US Air Marshall (yep) and three female Air Tran FAs. Rarely were there more than 2 or three of us there. It was a nice place.

Well-padded/soundproofed TV room (or hard-wired to wireless headphones) and/or well-soundproofed sleep rooms with every door in the house and every rafter in the roof and floor oiled to within an inch of their respective lives. Anti-slam mechanisms on the doors, all of them.

No doorbell. An anti-solicitor vaporizer raygun that nails anyone attempting to sell something or hang doortags without the proper code to enter the SFH's perimeter.

No telephone.

High-speed internet with a router that kicks any IP off that hasn't used it within 30 minutes.

No smoking near air intakes for the house.

Air curtains at each door, to keep the flying insects out.

Lightproof Warm-Window coverings on the windows in the sleep rooms. A little expensive, yes, but you'll save a ton on heating and a/c bills, plus it'll keep things quieter and a lot darker allowing those with the need to sleep in the daytime.

Whole house A/C with thermostats (Nest?) in the sleep room and public area.

Gun locker(s).

A room with tables and chairs for study, work, or whatever without the TV noise/distraction.

All that other stuff listed above would be nice, too.

I had a crashpad in JFK that had all the HD porn channels. It helped pass time when you weren't getting called.

If it's a co-ed crashpad, make sure you're equal opportunity with those channels.
