The Peninsula, Shanghai, China

The Peninsula Suite

High above Chicago’s Gold Coast, The Peninsula Suite has two living areas — the more formal space is decorated in shades of yellow and gold with warm wood and rich, brown leather with a dining space for 10, and the casual family room has a wet bar and TV area. In winter, curl up in front of the gas fireplace and art from Sol LeWitt. During summer, soak in the views of Lake Michigan from the 2,000-sq-ft terrace and take a dip in the Jacuzzi. No matter the season, don’t miss the hotel’s Key to the City program. Take a chauffeured Mini Cooper and enjoy experiences including VIP access to the Art Institute of Chicago or a special eight-course dinner at two-Michelin starred Smyth, a new entry in Elite Traveler’s Top Restaurants 2018.

From $10,000 per night. Contact John Stack, director of sales,, +1 312 573 6602,
