So worth it

Delightful. The theme of the hotel is, "Here, let me get that for you." The sun deck is amazing, the pool beautiful, the room is divine and the service attentive as you'll ever find. It's completely serence.

Great Bar and Location

We stayed for the first time at a Peninusula property. The service is top notch. The maids wrap up the blow dryer the same way every time. Quite a feat! The control panel next to the bed is also very handy. Radio and tv controls together with the telephone, lights and a few other things. I also liked knowing the outdoor tempature coming from Florida. Two things that need improvement are the lighting, they use florescent bulbs and a coffee pot. Bedding was very comfortable. A short walk to many attractions.

Skip Spiaggia and go for the mini hot dogs at the bar. Awesome and you'll save a paycheck! Don't go to the Hancock tower on Saturday night for drinks. It's a wait.

Chicago's best hotel hands down

I have eaten several times at the Peninsula and have always wanted to "retire to my room” after dinner, well I finally got the chance and the Pen did not disappoint. This is a beautiful hotel in the heart of the best shopping in town. From check in to check out, everything ran like clockwork. The rooms are clean, well maintained and in good working order. The food at their Lobby restaurant was wonderful, as always. On Friday and Saturday nights they offer a chocolate and jazz experience that is not be missed. The Spa is pristine and the staff is very professional, the pictures on their web site don’t do it justice, we loved it. If you can swing it this is the place to go when staying in Chicago.

Try Roy's, a few blocks away for a romantic night out or have tea at the hotel for a great girls bonding experience.

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.

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.

Great Weekend Getaway

The hotel was at a great location in downtown Chicago by Watertower close to the top of the Magnificent Mile and close to Oak St. The hotel was well appointed and the staff was there to serve your every need. The only problem we had was with the key pad. We needed to go back to the front desk at least 3-4 times over the weekend for new keys but the staff handled the problem quickly. Overall, very happy with our stay.
