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


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

Map of The Peninsula Chicago

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.

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.
