Stayed 3 nights at the Peninsula Chicago celebrating our anniversary. First class all the way.
This hotel lobby is actually on the 5th floor, which makes the hotel quiet and intimate. The Bar located on the 5th floor is the perfect size. Dark and cozy, well decorated with attentive service. Our accomdation was in the Executive Suite, which has a little over 700 square feet. It was awesome, with a separate living area, separate dressing area, and separate bedroom. Lots of technology in the lighting which was fantastic. The whirlpool tub had a large picture window overlooking the city. The room has everything you would ever ask for. When we arrived, we were escorted to our room by the desk clerk. Upon arrival in our suite, we were greeted with a bottle of Champagne, compliments of the Manager, along with chocolate covered strawberries. Nice not to be nickled and dimed as wireless internet was complimentary along with the morning newspaper, not to mention the coffee bar located in the lobby. There is nothing not to love about this hotel. I am repeating myself, but their Bar is about the classiest I have seen. First Class A Plus. Their website also is outstanding. It provides a wonderful view into their accomodations including photos and floor plans for all accomodation choices. My Continental (now United) Presidential Credit Card allows me to ask for a free upgrade, so I simply booked a King Deluxe Room and was upgraded to the next level of rooms, which was the Executive Suite. I really appreciate the information on their website regarding the accomodations. This is a can't miss hotel if you are looking for something romantic and intimate. The locations is also outstanding for shopping and dining.
