Chicago Splendor

The spa and health club at Waldorf Astoria Chicago is an urban sanctuary in the Windy City.

The Gold Coast

Chicago's luxurious Gold Coast neighborhood holds the very best the city has to offer, and Waldorf Astoria Chicago is the ideal starting point for exploring its streets. The Gold Coast is home to Chicago's most exclusive shopping destination, the Magnificent Mile, which is located on nearby Michigan Avenue. This historic neighborhood is a dining destination as well, home to notable restaurants such as the Michelin-starred Spiaggia. In the summer, Oak Street Beach is not to be missed. Locals love it because it tends to be less crowded than other Chicago beaches, and its prime location affords visitors a spectacular view of the city's skyline.

Chicago Splendor

The Waldorf Astoria Chicago may be new to the Waldorf Astoria portfolio, but it's already receiving accolades, like being ranked the No. 1 large-city hotel in the U.S. by Travel & Leisure readers. Nestled in the heart of Chicago's posh Gold Coast neighborhood and designed by world-renowned architect Lucien Lagrange, the hotel has a dramatic black-and-white palette and distinctive decor that creates a clean, contemporary atmosphere that feels more like home than a hotel, which is why a few of its latest extras are oh-so-suitable:

The Mercedes Fleet: Whether you're heading to the shops on the Magnificent Mile or simply want to take in Chicago with a drive through its streets, the hotel's collection of luxury vehicles is available for guests to enjoy.

Tips are politely declined: There's a unique no-tipping policy that extends throughout the Waldorf Astoria Chicago hotel and includes bellhops, housekeepers, doormen, and concierges—allowing guests to relax more and fuss with wallets less.

Cutting-edge fitness: Located inside its award-winning spa and health club, the hotel's Gyrotonic studio allows guests to experience this breakthrough exercise, which merges the benefits of yoga, and Pilates during private lessons.
