Designed for the Luxury Traveler
In a city renowned for its legacy of forward-thinking design and architecture, The Peninsula Chicago will set a new standard for accommodations in Chicago. Designed with the luxury traveler in mind, the new guest rooms are expected to be completed in April 2016 and will showcase The Peninsula's evolution of design of luxury and enhance every guest's stay with ease, elegance and the ultimate personalization.
Designer Bill Rooney of Bill Rooney Studio, Inc., conceived contemporary interiors with a cosmopolitan attitude that syncs perfectly with The Peninsula’s vibrant setting in the heart of Chicago. Drawing influence from the French Deco style of the hotel’s public spaces, the new room is intentionally suited for both the business and leisure traveler. The new environment is spacious, unrestrained and offers panoramic views of the Chicago skyline. A hand-crafted floral art design element anchors each guest room, featuring the official flower of Chicago, the chrysanthemum, which is also one of the four “noble flowers” of Asia, further solidifying the marriage of the brand’s Asian heritage with Chicago influence.
The first phase of the redesign was completed in the Fall of 2015 with the final phase to conclude in April 2016.
Family Friendly Getaways
The Peninsula Chicago is family-friendly, offering fascinating Peninsula Academy programmes especially for children and tailoring stays to appeal to even the youngest of guests. Bring the whole family and stay in one of the hotel's suites which have a full-size, pull-out sofa bed in the living room. Or enjoy additional privacy by reserving an adjoining room. Multiple configurations are available to suit your family.
Suites With A View
A number of Executive Suites occupy corner locations of the hotel and offer three different viewing perspectives over bustling Michigan Avenue, Rush Street or Chicago Avenue. Bathed in natural sunlight, the living room is separated from the bedroom by an extended hallway for privacy and offers a sofa, lounge chair, coffee table, tablet technology offering 11 languages, nutrition center featuring a Nespresso machine, exclusive Bernardaud China, commissioned art wall and sculpture, vanity dressing table with illuminated mirror, executive desk and complimentary worldwide VOIP phone calls.
An Artist's Touch
The Peninsula Chicago is home to a fine collection of coveted art pieces such as those found in The Peninsula Suite by acclaimed artists including Sol LeWitt, Rainer Gross, Mark Tobey, Robert Mangold, Martha Diamond and Le Corbusier, amongst others.
