A full 5 star hotel in every way.
Best balcony/lookout area.
Truly a spectacular hotel. Stay 1 night here and you will not want to go back home and you will wish your bank account had more in it to fund a several nights getaway in the Windy City.
It is close to everything important unlike the Trump International which is in the middle of nowhere.

Probably at the level of the Four Seasons Chicago or better.view less

Getting your eyebrows done by Tina is better than a facelift! She is amazing. \r
Tina is Chicago's best kept secert. I have not found anyone this good at eyebrows since I lived in London.\r
The Peninsula Spa is one of the best city spas in the country. The service and attention to detail is flawless, the staff well trained and responsive and the ambience pleasant and soothing. In addition the Spa draws on the Peninsula hotel so that they can accomodate any special need - diet, baby-s...view moreitting, reservations, quick suit press, send a fax - whatever.view less
Let me just start off by saying that I am a spa junkie. I have been to practically every spa in Chicago and I would definitely vot The Peninsula Spa #1. From the moment you step out of the elevator you feel like you are in another world. Whenever I am there I am greeted by happy smiling faces and receive the greatest customer service. \r
I recently had a 90 minute Aromatherapy massage with Andrea and a manicure with Mylinh. Both services were completely five star. I think my favor...view moreite part of this spa is their relaxation lounge. They have these amazing reclining beds that make you not want to leave. My massage was completely relaxing. As I tell everyone, you must do ninety minutes. Sixty minutes just does not cut it anymore! My manicure was top notch as well. I love all of the ESPA products they use. I was surprised to learn they are the only vendor that carries them in Chicago. \r
As always I only have great things to say about this place. I wish I could come here every day!view less
This was my first time getting a massage at Peninsula by ESPA. It was awesome. My massage therapist, Donald, was really something else. He discussed with me prior to the massage on what we should really work on. I was feeling really stressed and tired, but all that went away after my hour with him. He had suggested Aromatherapy mixed with a little deep tissue for my back. It really made me feel really relieved afterward. Before the massage, I got to relax in their lounge area and...view more even take a steam. Everyone was very friendly and I can't wait to go back!view less
The spa is beautiful it was my first time there and I was really impressed. I had a pedicure with Amy. Not only was it a wonderful pedicure , she was so friendly and sweet she instantly made me feel like I was talking to someone I have know for years. She is a gem ! I I will be back soon.
I have been to this spa twice, and both times were just fantastic. I have been to about 8 different spas in the Chicago area as well as a few others around the world, so I have a good feeling for what it should be like. For a Hotel Spa and being in the City, this is about as good as it can get.\r
My treatments were a while ago, but I recommend my first massage, an Uplifting Mint Ceremony. It was heaven!
I have stayed at many four star hotels and the Peninsula Chicago was very impressive. The staff at this hotel was without comparison. Anything that I needed I could pick up the phone and have it within minutes or someone else would be able to help me with my arrangements.
Occasionally, my husband and I feel the need for a retreat but our busy lives don't permit long-distance travel. When the notion hits us, we sneak into a suite at The Peninsula and play like we're on vacation. I recommend the luxury and quality of the rooms, the spa, and restaurants. Quite good service, as well.
Every time I have visited this hotel, I have had a pleasant experience. I have only been to the spa once but it was a wonderful experience. I have visited the bar and Steve was a very friendly bartender. The atmosphere in the bar is extremely relaxing. I have enjoyed visiting this hotel. However, I have never stayed overnight so i don't know what the rooms are like. I can only imagine that the overnight stay would be a pleasure.
I went to the Peninsula twice for a facial and reflexology. I had Erin and she was amazing! I have sensitive skin and she ensured that I would not have adverse results by testing two products in small patches. Only then did she apply the products. She was super sweet and took her time. Next time I went, Erin was booked, so I got Isabelle.I explained to her about my skin and what Erin had done. She acted irritated and impatient and said that she did not have the time to do all that and ...view moreits not what she does. She then acted quite rude and gave me attitude the whole time. Anyways, lesson learned. Avoid Isabelle and go to Erin!view less
