With its location at East Superior Street and Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago, The Peninsula Hotel couldn't be more conveniently located.

First-rate shopping abounds, and Water Tower Place is just two blocks away.

Fantastic Chicago Weekend

This past weekend was a great time and quite frankly, the Peninsula made the difference. All the staff was so accommodating and made a fun weekend into an extraordinary weekend. I would absolutely stay at this hotel again!

Amazing…as usual.

This is the third time we have stayed here and every time it is wonderful! The service and rooms are unparalleled. Great size for downtown chicago and their normal rooms are bigger than suites in other hotels!! We have a wedding that is in another hotel in Chicago over the weekend after Labor Day and our entire family wants to change from the two suites we have in that hotel to The Peninsula! Keep up the great work!!

Use the Concierge! They are great! The Peninsula does carry lots of clout so if something you think might be tough to get tickets for or reservations let the hotel concierge handle it...

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.

Beat the Four Seasons!

My friend and I go to Chicago every year for a girls' shopping trip. Usuually we stay at the Four Seasons but this time The Peninsula was offering a free night. We booked a king room but asked for a room with two beds upon check-in. They gladly accompanied us, and the lady who checked us in even offered to accompany us to our room. The room was gorgeous-ton of space, separate dual sinks, tub and TV, etc. The hotel offered free fitness classes, so we got in a yoga workout before beginning our day. We ate at both the Lobby Bar and the Shanghai Terrace. Skip the first-food was good but expensive. I've had better for the money. But don't miss the ST. The food was fantastic, service impeccable, and the terrace itself is gorgeous.

Purchase the Chicago City Pass. It is a booklet of tickets to major museums, John Hancock and Sears Tower. It gives you fast pass entrance to all the venues. It was well worth it!
