The Peninsula Chicago Named Number One Hotel in Chicago by Travel & Leisure
It’s clear that guests love the recent changes at The Peninsula Chicago, as the North Michigan Avenue landmark underwent a huge renovation last year. From the crisp new room décor to the tablet technology and inventive guest perks, the improvements were enough to bump the luxury hotel from No. 4 on the 2016 World’s Best list to No. 1 this year.
“The Peninsula is the most beautiful and luxurious place we’ve stayed in Chicago in a long time,” said one reader. The spa, occupying the 19th and 20th floors of the hotel, is another hit among guests. It offers Asian-inspired treatments and an indoor pool overlooking Lake Michigan and the city’s skyline.
Don't forget to visit the renowned Shanghai Terrace located within the hotel. Voted the number one "Chinese Restaurant in Chicago" by Zagat Survey, Shanghai Terrace offers Cantonese delicacies amidst a 1930s supper club décor, or outside on The Terrace with spectacular skyline views and cocktails. Step into the seductive setting of the restaurant and savour distinctive cuisine, consistently honoured with the AAA Four Diamond Award. With Chef de Cuisine Elmo Han at the helm, the menu encompasses a magnificent blend of traditional dishes and creative rendition of classics. At lunch, bamboo baskets of freshly steamed dim sum contain favourites such as barbecue pork buns, Peking Duck and shrimp and chive dumplings.
