The Peninsula Chicago

The Peninsula Chicago has maintained the highest standards in Chicago since it’s opening. Totally Five Stars all the way. This is a MrFiveStar prefered Hotel in Chicago.

256 Rooms / 83 Suites

The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Peninsula Chicago is the retreat of choice for stars and notables who come for the discreet, attentive service, delivered by a staff trained in the art of gracious hospitality. Luxurious guest rooms are bright with light wood and muted earth tones, and the marble bathrooms have oversized tubs where you can soak while catching up on the news on the flat-screen TV. A bedside control panel allows you to adjust the room’s temperature, lighting, music — even the curtains — all without having to leave the comfort of the 300-thread-count sheets. The skyline level spa and fitness center provide a reason to leave the comfort of the spacious, contemporary guest rooms. Forbes.


On weekend nights the Peninsula’s soaring lobby lounge becomes a sweet fantasia, centered on an overflowing chocolate buffet; guest rooms are lavish with plush pillow-top beds, Wi–Fi, and bedside consoles that control both the TV and the “do-not-disturb” light. The hotel also hosts popular afternoon teas daily in its magnificent lobby. One of three American branches of the venerable Hong Kong–based chain, Chicago’s Peninsula features a rooftop lap pool enclosed in

a Zen aerie with stunning views. Make time to enjoy the property’s fitness center and award-winning spa.

Travel + Leisure 

As you walk into the Peninsula, the concierge and receptionist greet you by name; classical music plays when you enter one of the 339 rooms; and your bedside table has a control panel to manage the lighting, deactivate the doorbell for privacy, and alert housekeeping when you want service. The luxury extends to the hotel’s spa: it includes an outdoor sundeck, spa cuisine, eight treatment rooms, a steam room, and a lap pool. And be sure to dine at Shanghai Terrace—Food & Winevoted it one of the top 100 Asian restaurants in the U.S.

Room to Book:

Grand Deluxe Suites have the best views in the hotel—they all overlook Water Tower Park—and were just updated with Art Deco-inspired accents (lacquer tables, brocade-covered chairs).

Insider Tip:

Enjoy Chocolate at The Pen every Friday and Saturday from 8:30 p.m. to midnight. Open to the public, the event features a string quartet along with an unlimited selection of sweets ranging from chocolate-dipped strawberries to chocolate tiramisu.
