You will indeed be offered a therapist gender choice for a massage or body treatment at Waldorf Astoria Spa & Health Club Chicago. When you call the spa to set up an appointment, you’ll be asked for your choice. If this doesn’t work out how you’d like for your appointment, the spa will ask if you want to reschedule for another time. However, they should be able to accommodate you. The Waldorf Astoria Spa & Health Club Chicago has 12 massage therapists on staff, with five estheticians and five nail techs rounding out the staff.
Men and women share the individual treatment rooms, though the facilities include a separate whirlpool, sauna and steam room for men and women inside the separate locker rooms. The men’s relaxation area has a bit of a different setup than the women’s, with a flatscreen TV (with lots of sports and news channels) and fireplace as the centerpiece. Waldorf Astoria Spa & Health Club Chicago also offers couples treatments, if you’d like to get treatments together, and every treatment is customized to suit your personal needs.
