If you want to be near popular attractions in Chicago, it doesn’t get much better than The Peninsula Chicago's location. Situated smack-dab in the heart of the city’s ritzy Gold Coast neighborhood, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel is within walking distance of some of Chicago’s best sights. The famous shopping haven known as the Magnificent Mile is half a block east of the luxury hotel’s front door, putting you seconds away from Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Tiffany & Co. and more. The Museum of Contemporary Art is five minutes away by foot, and the historic Water Tower is one block north. Hop in a cab for a quick ride and you’ll find yourself at Navy Pier — where you can hop on a boat for a tour during the summer — and Millennium Park to scope out the famous bean-shaped silver sculpture.
There are a variety of popular attractions including The Art Institute of Chicago, Millennium Park, Water Tower, Magnificent Mile shopping, the Chicago Lakefront and The John Hancock Observatory located near The Peninsula Chicago.
