My fiance surprised me with a night away from reality for our anniversary in January. The hotel is amazing - the exterior is kind of French Provincial; the rooms are lovely, including the bathrooms with the large walk-in showers and deep soaker tubs; the doors use proximity sensors; and the light switches include any and ever setting you could possible need and with labels, so you know what you're doing.
The hotel ordered a cab and gave the directions for our dinner without my ever knowing where we off to. The staff are exemplary. When we returned from dinner, the hotel manager sent up champagne and a very nice card.
I have stayed at other top 10 Chicago hotels, and the Elysian is far ahead of any of the others.
