I wanted to stay in what I hoped was the best hotel in town and so my expectations were high.The Peninsula did not disappoint.My room was a kingsize deluxe and although it overlooked another building on a side street it was very quiet (unless you open the windows) and well appointed.
The staff were all very helpful, efficient and courteous. The spa is very well designed with a nice indoor pool. The outdoor sundeck enabled some sunbathing and room service could be ordered there.The massages in the spa were good but the standard varied.I had three different therapists and one was considerably better than the other two.For 155 dollars for sixty minutes I would have liked more consistency.
The location of the hotel is excellent...right by Michigan Avenue. I would recommend Peirrot Gourmet for breakfast which is quite casual. It is part of the hotel so you can charge to your bill but is accessed from the street by the hotel so is very close by but gives the feeling of being out of the hotel.
