The Peninsula Chicago is a 5-star luxury hotel that offers families just about everything they could want — wonderful location in the heart of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, luxurious amenities and top-tier accommodations, and enough kid-focused entertainment to keep every family coming back.

Upon check-in, kids are offered a platter of chocolates, cookies and other sweets. They’ll also love being enrolled in one of The Peninsula Academy’s many programs, geared toward introducing the family’s younger members to the world’s of art, architecture and culture of the Windy City.

Simply a beautiful and elegant hotel with top notch service. Stayed at the Peninsula last week for a work conference and was expecting a standard hotel experience. The Peninsula is not a standard hotel. It is every bit as nice as a Four Seasons or Ritz, actually nicer and bigger rooms, and the food and staff was incredible. Highly recommend.

Beautiful, and is new favorite. It was a work trip and that's what made coming back to the Peninsula so enjoyable. Great location, walked to our meetings and to the convention center. We'll definitely return and seek out other locations,
