The Peninsula remains the best hotel in Chicago with nice rooms, great staff, and vibrant bar and great food.  The Shanghai Terrace was an excellent last minute choice when we didn't want to go out in the blustery weather again.

We have enjoyed many properties throughout the US...but the Peninsula Chicago was impressive. The ambiance, service ,food, spa and fitness all made us feel as if we were on a cruise. Yet, it was the windy city in May! The location slightly off of busy Michigan Avenue was also a bonus. Everyone should stay once at the Peninsula.

The Peninsula has recently had an excellent refresh of their rooms and our recent stay in an executive suite was wonderful. The service and attention to detail was outstanding. We have stayed here several times now and find it superior to the Four Seasons and Ritz.

Almost perfect

By: DrV

Reviewed on: 16 Sep 2018

After initially trying to put us in a handicap accessible room, which has a significantly inferior bathroom for those who don’t need special accommodations, the rest of the stay was nice. We got every third night free on a busy holiday weekend, plus all the other usual perks. Plus we received nice welcome amenities and an additional bottle of wine and snacks in the middle of our stay. Breakfast in the room each morning was excellent and dinner at Shanghai Terrace was special.

Spent one night but it was terrific. Staff helpful, friendly and accommodating. Food was superb, room and all areas immaculate. Have stayed at other hotels in the group and each one is delightful. Worth every penny. Especially good when you have a child with you as they provide special amenities for the youngsters.
