Stayed one night for anniversary

What a beautiful full service hotel! This is our second time staying at the Penisula. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The only complaint is that we did not get our turndown, but it was not the end of the world. The food at the hotel restaurants was excellent, and the SPA is wonderful. We will be back again.

The Hotel took care of all of our needs

The service at the hotel was exceptional. Wonderful turn down service including complementary water bottles. Large room. Mood lighting. Great traditional bar. We enjoyed the Chocolate Bar buffet at The Lobby restaurant. We arrived early 9:00 am and our room was ready. Very helpful concierges; arranged our Architecture Foundation boat tour - a must do. Right off Michigan Ave.

Fantastic Place to stay

The hotel is beautiful, clean, and well staffed. The room we stayed in was well appointed with a ton of extra touches which impressed my wife and I. The bed was extremely comfortable. The two restaurants located in the hotel are amazing. I can't say enough. Quite possibly one of the best hotel experiences I've had.

Difficult check in process

Great hotel and amenities but the check in process was very difficult. My wife checked us in but it took 30 minutes for the front desk to find our reservation which was made through An on line travel service that begins with O and ends in Z. Even with the confirmation copy in hand the front desk couldn't find our reservation which delayed us by 30 minutes. I wouldn't expect this at a five star hotel.

Family tradition

My family and I stay at the Peninsula the night of the magnificent Mile lights Parade and the entire stay was wonderful. Including valet parking to checking in and the bell hop. The room was fabulous and looked on to Michigan Ave. there was a section set aside for the hotel guests that was up front and as great!!!! Every year I will continue to bring my family back to the Peninsula.

Excellent place

Excellent location and an excellent hotel. Great rooms, very nice people, and great bed/bathroom facilities. Of course, for all that you do pay a bit, so its not a 'bargain".
