Site Visits in Chicago

Chicago has been the only destination I’ve visited twice in 2018, because once wasn’t enough! I’ve gotten to where I really love that city! It’s clean, it’s on Lake Michigan’s beautiful waters, there’s plenty to do and see, and can we TALK about the architecture?!

Of course I had to take some time and peek around some properties for everyone. My findings? Two gems in a concrete jungle; both completely different in personality, yet equally inviting. Read on, readers!

I first paid a visit to The W Lakeshore.

Are you familiar with The W’s brand? Most all W properties are absolutely chic and luxurious, in the most fun way. The W Lakeshore, one of two W properties in Chicago, is no exception. It’s location is top notch: snuggled right up to the lake and beach, and a quick Uber away from fun nightlife and great shopping. While I did see plenty of families checking in, I saw mostly 20 and 30-somethings. The place screamed bachelor/bachelorette celebrations! And fellas, if you’re reading this, they have one suite with a foosball table centered in the living room — and I’m sure I could secure that room for your next guys trip!

My second visit was to The Sofitel Magnificent Mile, one of eight Virtuoso Properties in Chicago.

The Sofitel is right around the corner from high-end shopping and near all kinds of up-scale restaurant options. My favorite part about The Sofitel? The design is French inspired – and their rooms are as beautiful as you might imagine. Sofitel also has a restaurant on site that makes their own cheese and fresh pastries daily. Take it from me, those pastries and that cheese alone are reason enough to pay The Sofitel a visit. I would know, because I made sure to be thorough in my research. If you’re looking to visit Chicago on business, a girls weekend, or a family trip, I would confidently recommend Sofitel.
