Wow! I believe I have found a new Gold standard for excellence that rivals and perhaps excels the Ritz-Carlton!
I had the pleasure of staying 4 nights at the magnificent Peninsula hotel on recent business trip to the Windy City! I cannot think of many other stays that have been as comfortable, pleasurable and filled with some of the most impeccable and courteous service ever!
Rich, opulent rooms and lobby areas, great choice of dining (from quick and casual to sophisticated and ultra formal), great bar (though a tad pricey!!!) and a location that's hard to beat, right beside the historic Water Tower.
Luxuriously appointed rooms that are elegant and understated - they don't SCREAM opulence at you but it's obvious in every little detail. The standard rooms are roomy but not huge. The bed was really comfortable and the climate control very efficient.
What makes this absolute gem of a hotel stand out is the service. Every single person - check-in desk clerk, the bell-hops, the concierge, housekeeping, room service waitress... every single one greeted me by name when they saw me... this is staggering!!! As a previous reviewer has stated, the rooms are indeed serviced twice a day unless you request otherwise.
Bathroom was gorgeous - marble sinks, comfortable shower with great control of water temperature and a fantastic set of bathroom amenities that were refreshed every single day!
~ 5 stars overall - this is unquestionably one of the premier hotel chains, if not the very best, in the world! If I could, I would return here in a heartbeat to enjoy more of this world class service and elegance.
