The Romantic Peninsula Chicago Hotel


By Geri Bain

We two romantics felt a rush of anticipation for the experience awaiting us in Chicago as the hotel doormen in their iconic Peninsula “page” uniforms greeted us with smiles.

We were not disappointed as we stepped into the sumptuous lobby, which felt like a modern-day palace. Gold-trimmed columns reached up to a coffered, gilded ceiling and two-story high windows opened to the city, lighting up the spectacular French Deco-style space.

Looking around, we kept spotting yet another piece of the hotel’s eclectic art collection, from the pair of traditional Chinese lions guarding the entry and the Chinese bas-relief on the wall behind the front desk to the modern bronze sculptures by Chicago artist Jean Jacques Porret that appear around the lobby and in the guest rooms.

As we checked in, we were excited to learn about some of the VIP “Keys to the City” perks of staying here, such as a priority pass and complimentary guidebook to The Art Institute of Chicago and a private shopping session at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Most of all, we were thrilled to be spending a long weekend at one of Chicago’s most luxurious hotels, and while we didn’t spot any celebrities or world leaders during our stay, it wouldn’t have surprised us if we had.
