If you’re planning a trip to The Windy City and you’re looking for a five-star luxury stay (in a prime location that’s close to everything), then The Waldorf Astoria is the perfect hotel for you. The gorgeous hotel is located in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood and is tucked away behind the famous Magnificent Mile (Michigan Ave), on one of the hottest shopping streets in Chicago. The Waldorf Astoria Chicago was ranked by U.S. News as one of the Best Hotels in the USA for 2018, and is one of a few handpicked hotels within the Virtuoso consortia (VIP perks for you–see more below).

The Waldorf Astoria Chicago is a haven inside a bustling city oozing with classic Parisian charm. Check in and relax and unwind in one of 215 richly appointed guest rooms complete with fireplaces, wet bars, oversize bathrooms with soaking tubs, and suites furnished with outdoor terraces. The bathroom amenities include dreamy (and incredible smelling) Salvatore Ferragamo bath products–which you’ll want to take home!

The hotel also has a health club and spa, which is the best way to unwind after a busy day of sightseeing and shopping in Chicago. The Waldorf Astoria spa is an award-winning spa that offers a full range of customizable treatments and includes a eucalyptus steam and sauna, as well as an amazing lap pool. If in-room spa services are your cup of tea, then you’re in luck because they offer those as well.

If you love food as much as I do, then you’ll love the dining options at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago.  They boast not one but two restaurants by James Beard Award-wining Chef Michael Mina: Margeaux Brasserie is a Parisian cafe serving elevated French cuisine with locally sourced ingredients, while Petit Margeaux is a cute French patisserie and coffee shop.
