    Saturday night is the best time to visit this wonderful place, as they have an insane chocolate bar and a live string quartet that plays their version of modern rock. Read more

    WRONGLY reported as closed for several years, and that's what accounted for the gap in tips here. It's undisputedly one of the best hotels in Chicago and in the world.

    The spa here is amazing. Nathan gives the best deep tissue massage and the relaxation room is so tranquil you could take a good snooze or chill by the fire with strawberry water. I never want to leave

    I ever ate the lunch buffet before. The food is high quality, and the environment is very enjoyable. You can look the skyline of Chicago while you enjoy the food.

    At this stately property, the concierge greets you by name; classical music plays when you enter your room; and your bedside table has a control panel to alert housekeeping when you want service.

    The terrace is beautiful. Skating in the winter (though on fake ice) and a great view of the Hancock Tower, Michigan Ave., and the Allerton.

    The Lobby restaurant always feels decadent. I especially love the afternoon tea service and breakfast pressed juices.

    Finally a place where they understand you have a million things to charge, and the switches are not hidden on the back of the bed (impossible to reach) 🙌🏻

    Just steps away from the Magnificent Mile, the staff at the Peninsula is known for their attention to detail, like leaving a martini glass full of gummy bears in your room.

    Don't be fooled by the little dishes of what looks like aquarium rocks that they serve at conferences -- they're actually super delicious chocolates. Think, uber-classy M&M's.
