If you’re a shopaholic, a visit to Waldorf Astoria Chicago is a dangerous proposition and an irresistible one at that. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel offers easy access to some of Chicago’s best shopping, with boutiques and designer shops throughout the surrounding Gold Coast neighborhood (think Barneys New York, Hermès, Marc Jacobs and Prada). And if the designer stores don’t satisfy your retail appetite, then just head over to North Michigan Avenue, where Water Tower Place offers standard shopping center stores and boutiques. Michigan Avenue’s famed Magnificent Mile has a slew of flagship stores from Banana Republic and Crate & Barrel to All Saints and Topshop. You also can’t miss high-end department stores Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdale’s.
Situated in the heart of the Gold Coast neighborhood, Waldorf Astoria Chicago is ideally located near the most exclusive shops, dining and nightlife, and it's just minutes from Chicago's business district and the city's most famed attractions and destinations. Elite boutiques in walking distance include Barneys New York, Chanel, Hermès, Furla, Graff, Gucci, Moncler, Harry Winston, Prada and Tod's.
