Chicago is a city known for buildings that do it up during the holidays, and Waldorf Astoria Chicago is no exception. Inside, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s understated and elegant design is accented by large bows on its French lanterns and in its main entryway. The grand courtyard outside has refined decorations that are more class than flash (you’ll also appreciate the ice-melting system beneath the hand-carved cobblestones). We suggest booking one of the 135 rooms with a fireplace during the season so you can snuggle up next the hearth and enjoy a hot cup of cocoa from the in-room dining service.
