I recently stayed at the fabulously redone Peninsula Chicago. I cannot believe it is the same place. the Lobby remains as beautiful as before, with a quintessential buzz and local power breakfast. Rooms though are stunning. The new blue and cream colors add great personality. Rooms are huge, with spacious bathrooms and furniture that is so amazingly customized... it makes everything so intutitive. Even the drewer holding the Nespresso accoutrmemonts is specifically outfitted. I love the wires and ports for any kind of chargers that are as intuitive as you would ever wish. Shanghai Tang was one of the best Chinese meals i ever had in my life and the service here is perfection -- you feel more like you are in Asia than USA. I think the new Peninsula is surely the best hotel in Chicago now. Amazing location, amazing service and now perfect rooms. Read less

We were here over Thanksgiving, and it was the first Peninsula that we stayed. We were blown away by how nice it was and how good the service was. Rooms were very pretty. Location is great. I would definitely come back.

Upon late arrival, we were pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff and the architecture of the building. Our rooms were quite large and pleasant to stay in. The entire facility was pristine. Very clean. The only downside being the pool which was also filled with kids. My family couldn’t go down there because of them.

We were asked "are you sure your staying with us?" When we pulled in in a mini van . I guess when you go to that hotel they only treat you good when you drive a fancy car .

We were asked "are you sure your staying with us?" When we pulled in in a mini van . I guess when you go to that hotel they only treat you good when you drive a fancy car . Everyone is very rude and make you feel extremely unwelcomed . We paid alot of money for a view of some construction and bad service . The ritz carlton across the street is way better . Also , if you like your privacy dont go here they open your door and peep their head in if you dont open when they knock . The room is okay but not worth it at all doesnt even have a balcony .
