The sophisticated 331-room Peninsula Chicago overlooks North Michigan Avenue in the heart of the premier shopping district. Elegant, high-tech guest accommodations (new bedside and desk tablets in one of 11 languages) have been redesigned to feature a more contemporary style with silk-printed artwork, rich leathers and a well-balanced cream and deep-blue color palette. Executive Suites feature separate living areas, large writing desks, king beds and marble baths with deep soaking tubs. Four dining and bar venues include the indoor/outdoor Shanghai Terrace for distinctive Chinese selections; a European-style café and wine bar; and the opulent Lobby with 20-foot floor-to-ceiling windows. Amenities at The Peninsula Chicago include an elaborate rooftop spa and gym with an 83-foot indoor pool, a relaxation lounge with fireplace, and an adjoining outdoor sundeck with views of Lake Michigan.
