Have had high expectations, as a number of friends had mentioned that the Peninsula was one of the top ranked hotels in the world.
While we only stayed for one night, we wished had reason to stay longer.
The room was insanely large room, with a separate bedroom and a bathroom that could have bathed six. Top of the line linens, soaps, etc...
The lobby is gorgeous and the restaurants are great. The place isn't cheap, but you get what you pay for. Only down side is like many Chicago hotels one need to take two elevators to actually reach one's room.
We didn't use the pool or the gym, but our neighbors bragged about both.
Location is downtown Chicago - tough to beat.
The staff was professional, yet never snobby. Will certainly be staying here again.
