I recently attended a work seminar at the Pen. The suite was fabulous and exceptionally comfortable. The service was fantastic. They knew what you wanted even before you thought of it. If I have an opportunity to visit again, I wouldn't think twice about where I would stay. The Pen has it all.

I've been staying here once a quarter for two years. The service is impeccable, which is the hardest thing for properties to get right. I am increasingly disappointed with the rooms. There are no temperature settings in the rooms. The AC is controllable in only 4 steps: warm to cold, with 4 leds indicating the steps. there is a radiator... More

The staff make elegance easy for guests with their "just before you need it" unobtrusive service. My daughter and grandson were there to visit Chicago, and I was there to experience this legendary hotel. As the weather was chilly and rainy, my guests spent more time than they intended in the hotel. They loved the restaurants, the pool, and our... More

We created a combined family and business trip, and decided to stay at the Peninsula based on prior wonderful experiences with the chain in China. (We had stayed at the chain's properties in Shanghai and Beijing.) I had been warned that The Peninsula hotels based in the USA wouldn't be at the same level of luxury and service, but those... More

Hands down the best. Everything about this place oozes service. From reception to private work outs to coffee service. Did I mention the BMW 700 series free rides in the local area. The driver gets you to where you want to go and treats you like a real guest. It's impressive- I think the initial contact person at your car... More

Stayed with my son for a staycation in Chicago at the Peninsula. I was really looking forward to a wonderful spa experience while we were there. However, the spa was a huge disappointment and I am considering no longer staying at the Peninsula ever again ( we normally stay 2 times a year at least)......The ladies at the spa check... More

The rooms at this large property located in the center of Chicago are not particularly memorable, but the hotel does provide great service, which somewhat compensates for this. I had to make a number of changes to my reservation, which the staff accommodated with ease. I also was looking for late checkout, which on first try was declined (a big... More

I love this hotel. It is elegant, fun, beautiful, beyond clean and my home away from home when in Chicago. It's amenities are outstanding (spa, pool, exercise room, complimentary yoga classes, lobby, lounge, outdoor space, location- you name it!).

Thus far, this is the best hotel I have had the opportunity to stay in while visiting Chicago. While attending a conference, I was booked into The Peninsula.
