The Peninsula Chicago boasts suites that are like a home-away-from-home, but better — that is, unless you live in a castle. The suites in this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel range from 793 square feet to a whopping 3,000 square feet, and each of the six types of suites will make you feel like royalty.
The executive suite is the smallest of the six, but still has a separate living room and bedroom that overlook Michigan Avenue and the historic Water Tower. The next level up is the junior suite, which boasts French doors between the bedroom and living room for extra privacy. These suites overlook Michigan Avenue. A step up from the junior suite is the deluxe suite, which entails one bedroom, one full bathroom and one powder room, spread over 887 to 926 square feet. This suite, which overlooks Chicago Avenue and Rush Street, can connect to a room with one queen bed to make a two-bedroom suite. This setup stands out as an option for bridal suites.
At 1,007 square feet, the grand deluxe suite features one bedroom and a separate living room, with a full bath connected to the bedroom and a powder room off the foyer. The next suite is more than double the size of the grand deluxe suite, spread out over 2,500 square feet. We know; that’s the size of a single-family home, which is precisely why it’s called the grand suite. With two bedrooms, two full baths and a powder room, there’s plenty of room for you to enjoy the north, east and south views of Chicago. Past the marble foyer is the study with an oversized executive desk. And don’t forget the dining room with space for six. This suite can be blocked off from the rest of the luxury Chicago hotel for added security if you really need it.
The final suite is the big kahuna; the 18th-floor Peninsula Suite has a large outdoor terrace complete with a whirlpool. Whether you need just one bedroom or even three, this suite can be adjusted to accommodate your needs. You’ll even find a living room with a gas fireplace and grand piano in your 3,000 square feet. Don’t want to go down to the gym? A private exercise room located off of the master bedroom lets you break a sweat without having to deal with other guests. That’s just one example of the top-end luxury you get at The Peninsula Chicago; but you’ll feel pampered and taken care of, no matter what size room you choose.
The Peninsula Chicago’s suites are decorated in our trademark, sophisticated tones of warm beige, browns and gold, and have an elegantly contemporary, timeless and residential feel. Suites include a sitting area, some are separated with double French doors for added privacy. The Grand Deluxe Suite was recently renovated with muted lavender tones and black lacquer finishes, providing a contemporary feel.
