The Peninsula Chicago’s ice-skating rink is located on the fourth-floor Terrace, adjacent to the Shanghai Terrace restaurant. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel is situated in the heart of Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood, and the rink offers excellent views of the neighboring Magnificent Mile and the Chicago skyline. Skate around the dazzling lights and illuminated trees and grab a warm cocoa, cider or German wine or snack after you’ve got in a few laps. Since the rink is open only to guests of The Peninsula Chicago and its spa or restaurant, you’ll have plenty of space to take in the views. If you're planning to visit the luxury Chicago hotel in late 2013, inquire with your reservation specialist about the rink's opening date, operating hours and admission costs. We can't think of a more picturesque place to kick-start the holiday season.
