Retreat to The Peninsula Chicago

Located in the heart of Chicago is the five star, five diamond luxury hotel The Peninsula (108 East Superior Street). This is an award-winning hotel straight out of Hong Kong. Established in 1928, this prestigious hotel is located in only nine cities in the world (three in the US). Luckily Chicago has one and it adds to the amazing hospitality environment of the city. The Peninsula is truly dedicated to comfort and impeccable service.

Starting December 1st, continuing until March 31, 2013, The Peninsula Chicago is offering the Winter Retreat Package. This package is perfect for any type of trip; whether it’s a weekend get away with your friends or significant other, or a family vacation. Reserve this package and at check in you will receive a ticket for your chance to receive one of these amazing rewards: dinner for two at their spectacular restaurant, The Lobby; three hours in a chauffeured MINI Cooper; Gourmet chocolates; upgraded room; hour long massage at the Peninsula Spa, or even a complimentary night in a Deluxe Suite next time you book a room. I know that all sounds great, but remember I said “chance to win.”

The great thing about this Winter Retreat package is they have two versions of it that you can book. The Family Retreat version gives you complimentary overnight parking (we all know about the cost of downtown parking), a complimentary movie through their entertainment system, free dining for kids 12 and under from the children’s menu in The Lobby and Room Service. Pretty good deal if you have kids, free food to keep them full and a movie to keep them from bouncing off the walls.

Another version of the Winter Retreat package is for couple’s or a girlfriend retreat. That’s a continental breakfast for two, overnight parking, 30% off all spa services except manicures, and an upgrade to the next room category at the time of booking. Pretty good deals for packages starting at $395 a night.

Whether you are a native that just wants to get pampered at a luxurious hotel for a couple days or visiting from out of town, The Peninsula is definitely worth looking into. The Winter Retreat is just one of several packages the hotel offers. Just know that there is a two-night minimum. For more information or to reserve a room, call 312-573-6620 or email
