Editor’s Review of Four Seasons Hotel Chicago

Set on a quiet residential street just off Chicago's Magnificent Mile, the premiere shopping destination in the city, it's hard to top the location of the Four Seasons. Take the elevator from the street to the lavish seventh floor lobby and then a second elevator to your room and the city opens up before you.

The suites on the higher floors offer exceptional views of the entire John Hancock Building, Oak Street Beach, and the vast waters of Lake Michigan. In the morning, open the shades to a sunrise over the lake. In the afternoon, during warm weather months, peer out to see sailboats gliding on the water and people biking on the trail that hugs this mighty lake.

Even better, the resort goes over the top to make
... more families happy. Upon arrival in your room, you'll find a stuffed animal, cow-shaped cookies, chocolate milk, a bucket of popcorn, books and games. In the bathroom, a footstool helps kids reach the confetti-soap that fills the sink, while bubble bath and bath toys ring the tub and plush kid-sized terrycloth robes hang waiting for little ones to dry off in.

Want more? An actual ice cream man comes to your room between the hours of 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. with his rolling cart and selection of vanilla and chocolate ice cream. Add toppings of freshly made whipped cream, Oreo chunks, gummy bears, Reese's Pieces, and Hershey's chocolate and strawberry sauce. There's even a butler who comes up to tell bedtime stories, and kids have the option of using a Radio Flyer on your walks around Chicago. And what a family-friendly city it is; one where the signature dishes are deep-dish pizza and the Chicago-style hot dog.

Fun at the Four Seasons
Reviewed on 07/07/2011
We stayed at the 4 Seasons for 4 nights. They did a great job with the amenities for the kids. I do wish they would have replenished the kids shampoo, etc. but it was still great that they had it at all! We really enjoyed ...

Our premier room on the 43rd floor had two flat-screen televisions to enjoy when we could tear ourselves away from the impressive views.

The children's room was the living room with a sofa bed, a desk, Wi-Fi, and our favorite amenity: a padded window bench with pillows to sit on and watch the sunrise or speak on the phone.

In the bedroom, the king-sized bed was a sumptuous retreat, beckoning you after a long day of sightseeing. There was ample closet space with ironing board and safe, a nearby dresser and free Voss water on the nightstand. The bathroom had a shower with massage spray, a separate sunken tub, and L'Occitane products.

More affordable superior rooms are also available for families, but you'll miss the extra living room. If you'd like more space than offered in the premier rooms, inquire about the one- and two-bedroom suites.
