Luxury-lovers have a new address to frequent in The Peninsula Chicago. Sister to outposts in Hong Kong, New York, and Beverly Hills, The Peninsula plays to its prime Magnificent Mile location with a terrace overlooking Michigan Avenue and a top-floor, window-wrapped gym/spa that puts guests level with the skyline. The art-filled lobby and tech-driven rooms revel in international sophistication. You can engage the do-not-disturb notice and even get the outdoor temperature from bedside controls. The dim sum restaurant reflects The Peninsula’s Asian roots. In toto, a must-see, even for nonguests. Rooms from $425., (866) 288-8889 —
