THE FOUR SEASONS IN CHICAGO If you are visiting Chicago or just in need of a girls’ getaway, a stay at the Four Seasons Chicago is a must. Every few months, Brooke and I have a fun tradition of spending a mother-daughter weekend in Chicago, and the Four Seasons is the ideal hotel to pamper both teen and mom!
For a high end hotel, it is truly warm and inviting--there is nothing pretentious about the staff, yet the aura of the hotel exudes elegance, luxury and refined class. From the moment we arrive, the welcoming smiles of the doorman foreshadow the familial atmosphere abundantly present in every niche of the hotel. The location is also ideal, as just a few steps away and we are shopping and dining on Michigan Avenue. What we love as well is that the lobby is on the 7th floor which gives you the assurance of safety and seclusion.
The suites are pristine, airy, spacious and luxurious. There are so many highlights of our hotel room but the view takes the cake. Seeing the city skyline along with the beauty of Lake Michigan always leaves us in awe. At night, the twinkling lights are mesmerizing. Besides the magnificent view, we are in full agreement that there are no beds on the planet more comfortable than the beds at this hotel. Brooke describes them as sleeping on the fluffiest marshmallows.
The bathroom is also on point--spa decor and details, plush robes hung on the back of the door, along with a beautiful porcelain tub and glass shower. There is even a bathroom scale for those who apparently are not eating deep dish while in town. Needless to say, the scale was the only amenity in the bathroom that we left untouched.
The Spa Each trip, Brooke and I enjoy massages and manicures. Prior to our massages, we spend time in the sauna or lounging poolside. We’ve both agreed, hands down, these are probably the best massages and manicures we have ever had, and we are very particular about being properly pampered.
If you need a rejuvenating weekend, The Four Seasons won’t disappoint!
