Bottom Line

The Peninsula Chicago, a classic 339-room Chicago hotel right on the Magnificent Mile, exudes elegance and luxury -- from the bright and welcoming interior decor, to the immaculate indoor pool and sunbathing terrace. The natural light and warm colors combined with dark wood accents make it feel simultaneously airy and cozy. Rooms, though a tad generic for this caliber of hotel, are high-tech, featuring iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, control panels to adjust the lighting, and deep soaking tubs with personal TVs.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

An ideal location in Chicago, where it seems as if almost everything is within a five-minute drive

The hotel is located right on the Magnificent Mile, which means there are plenty of shopping and dining options nearby. Within a few steps you'll find Tiffany & Co., Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom's.

The Magnificent Mile, an iconic stretch of North Michigan Avenue, is the heart of Chicago's upscale shopping district. World-class hotels and boutiques cram both sides of this broad avenue, sandwiched between posh Streeterville and River North. But it is not all about department stores out here. Galleries, landmarks -- such as the Water Tower, the John Hancock Observatory, the Pumping Station and Wrigley Building -- and top-notch restaurants abound.

  • 25-minute drive to Chicago O'Hare International Airport
  • 3-5 minute walk to various shops and restaurants on Michigan Avenue
  • 5-minute walk to John Hancock Observatory
  • 5-minute walk to the Museum of Contemporary Art
  • 10-minute walk to Wrigley Building
  • 5-minute drive to The Loop business district
  • 5-minute drive to the Art Institute of Chicago
  • 5-minute drive to Lincoln Park
  • 6-minute drive to Grant Park
