To be fair, we stayed at The Peninsula for our daughter's wedding weekend - we held the reception in their ballroom. So I'm sure the staff were bending over backward to make it a perfect weekend for us, and that goal was met. My husband and I have traveled pretty extensively, and felt the newly redone rooms at The Peninsula... More

Five Star Hotel. Staff was professional, personable and extremely helpful. Room was well appointed with state of the art technology. Room 1819 has an amazing view of Chicago. The Bar and the Shanghai Terrace are both Five stars. Highly Recommend!

If you want rooms that are larger than usual, with features you wish you had at home, then this is the place to stay. I loved the connectivity so I could play my music and movies easily through the TV. The closet was wonderful with plenty of storage and the bathrooms were oversized with great features. Food at the restaurants... More

I stayed at the Peninsula this past weekend and it was a very elegant hotel. Picture the Ritz times ten. The hotel just went through a 37 million dollar room renovation. Our room was very spacious and clean. The bed was so amazingly comfortable and the technology in the room was very impressive. This hotel is a place that you... More

I chose The Peninsula Chicago for the first 3 nights of a USA trip because Peninsula is known for service and quality. I was not disappointed. The staff were incredibly friendly without being snobby - and the newly refurbished hi-tech room was great. The iPad(s) controlled everything from lights to air conditioning and even the "do not disturb" button could... More

This was our first visit to the Peninsula. We travel to Chicago frequently and have not fallen in love with any property enough to repeat. We will, however, come back to the Peninsula, because: -the rooms are fresh and newly refurbished. There is a calmness and simplicity that appeals. As well, for people who like highish tech rooms, there is... More

Just what you expect from such hotels. No bad surprise. Simply efficient. The staff is super nice and tries to make up for everything. I was a bit disappointed with the room cleaning at first, but we asked for an early check-in and they had to make the room in hurry. I regret the vanity, the Oscar de La Renta... More

We spent 3 nights in July at the Peninsula Chicago. We chose this hotel because the rooms were newly renovated, and the hotel was located in a prime location.

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.
