On weekend nights the Peninsula's soaring lobby lounge becomes a sweet fantasia, centered on an overflowing chocolate buffet; guest rooms are lavish with plush pillow-top beds, Wi–Fi, and bedside consoles that control both the TV and the "do-not-disturb" light. The hotel also hosts popular afternoon teas daily in its magnificent lobby. One of three American branches of the venerable Hong Kong–based chain, Chicago's Peninsula features a rooftop lap pool enclosed in
a Zen aerie with stunning views. Make time to enjoy the property's fitness center and award-winning spa.
