With Chicago being in the Midwest, the first thing you have to have if you want to be a great hotel is an indoor pool. After step 1, just add in luxury and spa treatments and you have something great on your hands. These five luxury hotels have done that and more with their hotel pools.
1 The Peninsula
Sitting next to 20-foot high glass windows, the Peninsula Hotel Chicago’s pool truly allows you to swim an actual lap of luxury. And if the weather is nice enough, head out to the sun deck and get a light snack from the Naturally Peninsula Spa cuisine menu.
2 The Four Seasons Chicago
3 The Waldorf Astoria
4 The Park Hyatt Chicago
A three-lane indoor lap pool that lets you enjoy the views of the city. Comfortable chaise lounges and chairs sit poolside, so whether you are in the pool or not you can enjoy the serene surroundings. If you’re interested, just head to the seventh floor of this beautiful hotel to enjoy the 25-yard beauty of a pool.
5 The Ritz Carlton
The Ritz Carlton Chicago offers a temperature-controlled, four-lane lap pool. The hotel pool is part of the Carlton Club, and offers total relaxation in many forms, including a rejuvenating aquatic workout.
