All I can say is Wow!... We've traveled a lot and have almost always avoided the additional cost of a 5 star. I have to say that this was an amazing experience from check in to check out and worth the extra cost. From our breakfast poolside to the bottled water to go from the valet on our way out,... More

I stayed for two nights in a newly renovated room. I can say that no photos of the room that had taken or of those that were professionally taken were able to capture how extraordinary this room is. Maybe I'm a rube, but I could not stop grinning at the new in-room technology. Everything is well-thought-out…..modern and luxurious. The service... More

From our greeting at valet, to front desk, and the immediate contact via text to ensure our needs would be met the entire weekend, only highlights the top 10 rating this Hotel deserves.

Peninsula hotels always seem to get "just right". Never too much, always just enough service, pefect amount of towels. The renovated rooms have perfect bathrooms with a long shelf to spread out your cosmetics/ toiletries. In bedroom, even a lighted mirror with nice bench for makeup etc. But over the top was the bed with perfect mattress and pillows, and... More

This hotel is one of the best in Chicago. We recently stayed with our five year old daughter, and had nothing but wonderful service. The pool was closed during our stay, but our room was upgraded to make up for the inconvenience. Our room on the 14th floor had a view that many would consider inferior to the Michigan Avenue...

My wife and I stayed for just an overnight. As a 5 star hotel, we expected a lot out of the experience and were happy to find those expectations met!

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
