I was an overnight guest to attend the Thanksgiving buffet with extended family. A terrific experience. The hotel was decorated beautifully for the holiday. And the buffet -- truly special!! The food was of great variety, well presented, and delicious. The service was attentive and cheerful. All the family had ample time to enjoy exactly the food they desired. After a long and most sufficient dinner, we retired to our rooms, which were well appointed and comfortable. When we came down for breakfast the next day, all the Thanksgiving accouterments were gone. In their place were Christmas trees, evergreen garlands, red and gold ribbons, and shiny ornaments everywhere. Just lovely, the perfect setting to celebrate the holidays. Read less

Stayed here over the Thanksgiving holiday. Besides it being absolutely beautiful the staff is truly remarkable in the way that they cater to your needs. If you get the chance schedule a massage with Neville. He is a highly skilled therapist and you will walk away feeling great! I highly recommend the Peninsula!

Stayed here on business - beautiful hotel with nice amenities all throughout. Friendly people and good place to stay on business. It was very clean and solid place to stay. Admittedly I stayed a bit before December 2018 (TripAdvisor just won't let me go back that far) - still solid and recommended.

Have stayed here a number of times while in the Windy City for business travel. This one of our favorites. Just for fun, travelling to CHI for holidays and going to try another top-rated hotel to see how things stack up.

The Peninsula is a beautiful luxury hotel in the heart of Chicago. The rooms are very large, with fabulous marble bathrooms and incredibly comfortable beds. The hotel main area is quietly luxurious. Location just off North Michigan Avenue can’t be beat.
