The Peninsula Chicago is a bucket list destination and is quite the treat. Stayed 2 nights and added great shopping, a wonderful massage and good eats to the weekend trip. Great view of the city from the terrace outside of the pool area. Nice gym with a nice view of the Ohio Street beach from the ellipticals. Very modern, well-appointed...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

I've stayed at many a downtown hotels but this is the best. The room was beautiful and technology was unreal, all lights,TV, and thermostat controls on tablet and easy to use. First time I've had my suitcase clothes folded and stacked. Personnel is super and even check in to verify quality of cleaning.

I've stayed at every 5 star hotel in Chicago and I keep going back to the Peninsula. Everything about the place is perfect, from the staff, to the accommodations, to the food, to the service, etc... It has become a staple for any anniversary or special occasion.

This hotel has had a wonderful refresh. They have taken something that was very good and made it better. From checkin to check out great service. Rooms have been refreshed and are large, have great amenities and are beautifully decorated. Overall service is excellent. Thanks for a great stay.

Location is great and Peninsula is consistent. Staff at the door was immensely helpful and showed me a fantastic cafe down the road. Always appreciate an insiders perspective. I travel regularly and thought this hotel lived up to expectations

If you enjoy being pampered this is the best hotel! Yes, you will pay more but it is worth every penny! Plus, the location is perfect right in the heart of it all downtown. Bottom line, splurge and check out this great hotel. Oh, the rooms have a technology setup unlike any other hotel!

From the elegant Asian-inspired atmosphere, to the gracious staff, we love the Pen.The spa is a treat with lovely showers, huge steam room, and watchful staff. We especially enjoy the turndown service: nothing like coming "home" to a dim room with music playing, fresh ice and water bottles, slippers by the bed, and blankets turned.

We booked two rooms for a girls birthday celebration and we loved every minute of our 24 hour stay. The rooms are luxurious! Beds are some of the most comfortable beds of any hotel stay.

We've been to the Peninsula in Beverly Hills and NY. The entire staff have outdone themselves on what it means to experience "The Peninsula."

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
