During your stay at Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago, stop by the 75-foot-long heated indoor pool and partake in the special amenities. After you master the backstroke, hydrate with a bottle of Trump-branded mineral water or a glass of cucumber ice water and a copy of the Chicago Tribune (or The New York Times or The Wall Street Journal) while relaxing on the black woven lounge chairs with teal padding and matching ottomans. Or simply gaze out the panoramic 14th-floor windows, which offer a lovely view of downtown and the Chicago River. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel stocks kick boards, foam noodles and pull buoys and lap lanes if you’re in the mood for a serious workout.
If you aren’t a strong swimmer, arrange for private lessons — which are available for adults and kids — by calling the spa’s front desk. Otherwise, veterans can partake in daily pool classes like swim technique and condition; aqua fit, an hourlong cardio and strength-building workout; and Trump Water Babies, a half-hour session for kids 35 months to six years old.
When it’s time for a bite to eat, order off of the hotel’s in-room dining menu and dine poolside at the tan glass tables among the white walls, slate-colored pillars and cream and brown mosaic-tiled floors. Once you’re done swimming, head to the adjacent locker room, where you can revive your tired muscles in the sauna or steam room before shampooing out any chlorine left in your hair. Be sure to stop by the machine that will dry your sopping bathing suit in a snap.
The 75-foot-heated indoor pool at Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago is an urban haven replete with lush palms and exquisitely comfortable furniture. Available for all swimmers are the traditional pool accouterments, like kick boards, foam noodles and pull buoys. Lap lanes are in place all day long so anyone looking for a full workout, need look no further than the pool.
In addition to these amenities, guests can enjoy a lovely meal poolside. The hotel’s in-room dining menu is the only one in the country to have dishes that have been certified organic. Such options are perfect for a light lunch after a relaxing spa treatment or rejuvenating work out. These meals are extremely popular for girls’ weekends — lunch can be arranged for small or large groups.
Beyond working out in the pool or dining poolside, the Spa at Trump happily accommodates and arranges for swim lessons. Available to, both, adults and children, private classes are the best way to quickly develop this important skill. To arrange for a class, guests need just call the spa front desk and they will take care of the rest.
The pool area is also actually a wonderful venue to watch the summer fireworks from, as well. Every summer between Memorial and Labor Day, guests can see the spectacular fireworks from Navy Pier on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
