Unbelievable Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 5, 2009

The Peninsula Hotel in Chicago is an absolutely wonderful hotel! Every detail is thought through and your stay will be pure luxury. The location of the hotel is perfect...right in the heart of Chicago and a cab ride or walking distance to everything.

Unique Quality: You must go to the lobby bar and have the afternoon tea. The Peninsula has expanded the traditional afternoon tea experience by offering rose champagne and you will enjoy a 3-tiered tower of finger sandwiches and pastries.

Best Hotel in the World

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 18, 2005

This is my favorite hotel in the world (well, tied with the Four Seasons Budapest), and it is nothing short of a sublime experience. Super luxe, incredible service standards, great restaurants, beautiful rooms, perfectly located on Michigan Avenue...just perfect.

Unique Quality: The lobby, the lobby restaurant, the rooms, the spa (!), the location, the service.

Expensive Extravagence

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 8, 2004

I was very excited for my parents to stay at the Peninsula in Chicago as the original in Hong Kong is one of their all time favorite. I was very disappointed with the rooms and the service. The rooms (at a rate of $450 a night) was not very large. The bathroom and dressing area were large but the room itself was small. My dad made the mistake of using the phone in the room for a long distance call. The long distance surcharge is $7.80 and then there is a per minute charge. We looked on the inroom billing screen to see the bill and noticed that there were 7 calls for $11.60. When my father went to the front desk to talk to them (and the GM) about the charges they fought him on it. There was no way he made 7 consecutive calls to the same number so they finally credited all but 1 of the calls. Really poor customer service as my family will never stay there again and I will not book our company executives there for an upcoming visit.

Since its grand opening in 2001, The Peninsula Chicago has been awarded numerous accolades including the prestigious Mobil Five-Star and the AAA Five-Diamond awards for the last two consecutive years.

Unique Quality: The Peninsula Chicago has 339 luxurious guestrooms and suites furnished in a magnificent classical style, including the 3,500 sq ft Peninsula Suite with its own private terrace and jacuzzi.

Modeled after the famous Hong Kong landmark, the midwest addition does not disappoint. The hotel's in-room technology is cutting edge: A small silver "command station" by every bed allows guests to control all the lights, curtains, and room temperature without getting out from under the covers. The marble-filled bathrooms have separate shower stalls and tubs, vanities with plenty of room to sit, and another "command station" by the bathtub. Add in the flat-screen TVs and you have a classic hotel that's very much attuned to the present.

Directions: Off of Michigan Avenue (on the Mag Mile), close to Water Tower Place and Bloomingdales.

The best sleep in town!!!

Unique Quality: Move over Four Seasons & Ritz-Carlton -- The Peninsula Chicago has set a new standard for comfort and service in Chicago. The elegance is understated and the carved "foo" dogs that guard the entrance are made of real marble!
.
The resataurant "Avenues" is now one of the best intown -- but pricey!
