Andrew and I celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary with a weekend stay downtown Chicago. What’s better than a staycation in your hometown?! While we had originally planned for a brief warm-weather Caribbean excursion, we opted to stay closer to home given the recent weather conditions.
Mother Nature surprised us with temps rivaling the Caribbean (with record-breaking temps in the 90s!) complete with a resort-quality stay at the Ritz Carlton Chicago. We didn’t know that it had just re-opened last month after a complete remodel, but our expectations were blown away with the quality of our accommodations that I had to share a little love about our stay here on the blog.
Happy hour, anyone?! How fun is this bar!
The service was impeccable, the food was impressive, the spa services were luxurious and the new lobby space, complete with an Italian restaurant, bar, coffee lounge and rooftop deck, were gorgeous spaces complete with lush velvet decor, modern lighting and Italian marble.
If you live and work downtown Chicago, add the Ritz to your list of spots for a meeting location or happy hour. For my fellow bloggers always on the look out for new photos locales or blogger meet-ups, the lobby on the 12th floor will not disappoint.
We celebrated another milestone year and will always remember our luxe staycation at the Ritz Carlton Chicago. For my Chicago readers, who else has some fabulous staycation recommendations?
