Some of the best views of Chicago’s Lake Michigan and the city’s skyline can be seen from the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago which occupies nineteen floors of a 66-storey skyscraper (the 25th largest tower in the United States). Located on downtown’s Magnificent Mile, you’ll be within easy walking distance of upscale shops and restaurants, as well as the lakefront.
One of the best places to absorb the vistas is from the Allium restaurant, where you can enjoy a dinner set against the backdrop of Lake Michigan. Allium, one of the finest restaurants in the city’s Gold Coast area, offers seasonal menus based around contemporary midwestern cuisine. Make sure that you try the signature dish of Chicago-style hot dogs (with homemade everything on top) and ask for a miso butterscotch milkshake to wash it down for the full experience. The bar serves delicious prohibition-era style cocktails, but if you’d prefer to retreat to your room, simply call upon the Martini Man who will come and fix you one without you having to move.
You’ll have much on hand without even leaving the confines of the skyscraper – great if it’s a particularly breezy day in the Windy City. Just floors below are the 900 North Michigan shops, around 70 in total, including restaurants and fitness facilities.
But you must make time for the Four Seasons Spa. It comes with soundproofed treatment rooms so you won’t be distracted, and wonderful offerings include the crystal resurfacing scrub that combines sea salt, sugar and magnesium oxide crystals to smooth your skin. For gentlemen, there’s a massage that incorporates Kentucky bourbon. And the 50-foot (15-metre) indoor swimming pool, inspired by Rome and positioned under a domed glass ceiling, is just the place for a total change of scene.
Kids are certainly not forgotten here, with a fully stocked Kids’ Clubroom with video games, foosball, board games, arts & crafts, and a movie area where families can enjoy time together. If everyone’s been particularly good, the in-room ice cream sundae delivery service is the perfect treat.
