Chicago is home to some of the most luxurious hotels in the world, an impressive assortment of larger franchises to offerings of the smaller, boutique luxury variety.  It’s a tough task to edit things down, but we’ve put together three recommendations for the next time you travel to the Windy City:

Drake Hotel Chicago

Ronald Reagan, Hugh Hefner, Princess Diana, and Marilyn Monroe are among the many famous guests that have enjoyed the superior service and breathtaking suites of the Drake Hotel.  It is one of Chicago’s landmarks, designed in the Italian Renaissance style, featuring beautiful restaurants and great luxury retailers as tenants.
Waldorf Astoria Chicago
The Waldorf Astoria Chicago is a hotel that will take its guests back to a fantastical world of luxury of 1920s Paris.  The cobblestone courtyard entrance is where the experience begins.
The Peninsula Chicago
The best that Chicago has to offer is The Peninsula.  Limousine service from the airport is the beginning of the service they have to offer.  The top two floors are occupied by the Fitness Centre with an award-winning spa.  The dining experience goes global, with three restaurants serving Cantonese/Shanghainese, European. and American cuisine.
