Once you stay at a Peninsula hotel, you will not want to stay anywhere else. The brand is synonymous with excellence but primarily located in urban settings/cities...the Peninsula Chicago is consistently rated one of the top hotels in the USA. The rooms are luxurious and the staff is exactingly accommodating. Located on Michigan Avenue, the hotel is literally in the middle of everything: museums, restaurants, shopping and the lakefront. Because we travel regularly with our children, I feel the hotel is family friendly but sophisticated enough that it is not for every family.
The health club and roof top pool are a treat year round and this visit I had a chance to take some exercise classes that were more challenging than any I have tried -ever.
