Waldorf Astoria Chicago
This lavish urban retreat enjoys a prime location on Chicago's Gold Coast.
Like the New York original, this Waldorf Astoria hotel is pure luxury. Situated in the center of Chicago’s Gold Coast, mere blocks from the Magnificent Mile, this modern, lavish hotel stands tall with views overlooking downtown and Lake Michigan. The 188 spacious guest rooms and suites are well-equipped, with niceties that range from fireplaces to furnished terraces. In addition, all accommodations come with complimentary Wi-Fi and LCD HDTVs. House restaurant, Balsan, serves European bistro fare, while Bernard's Bar offers a sophisticated venue for boutique wine, beer and spirits. A mosaic-tiled lap pool can be enjoyed at the health club, while Elysian Spa offers luxury treatments as well as a nail salon and barber suite. A total of 4,448 of meeting space eschews the corporate vibe for an appealing 1920s in Paris atmosphere. A courtesy car is available within a two-mile radius, although the majority of the city's best shopping and nightlife are all within walking distance.
