Away from the hustle and bustle of the Windy City, Chicago is home to an array of urban retreats. Nestled in the city’s top hotels, these spas are the pinnacle of relaxation in Illinois and perfect for a serene stay. Whether it’s an indulgent massage or a swim in a sparkling pool, these are our picks of the best spas in Chicago.
The Peninsula Spa at Peninsula Hotel Chicago
With a strong focus on Asian and Ayurvedic treatments, The Peninsula Spa transports you to a luxe getaway in the East. On the 19th and 20th floors, relax in one of the resplendent treatment rooms with a soothing natural color palette and ambient lighting. When it comes to treatments, you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu from the unique Destress Podi Program and Detox and Adrenal Program to holistic facials using Biologique Recherche ingredients. We love the spa’s integration of wellness therapies, like energy-balancing ingredients, results-driven technological therapies (like an electrospun hyaluronic acid serum) and clinical massage techniques from Asia. In addition to the Spa, guests have access to a half Olympic-length pool with floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing perfect views over the Windy City. There’s also a relaxation lounge with a fireplace, fitness center and yoga area and sun terrace.
