Waldorf Astoria Chicago: Chicago, Illinois
My husband and I were smitten from the moment I walked through the Waldorf Astoria Chicago’s front doors, as I was now in the land of ultimate luxury. I could not wait to explore the entire hotel, however I was most eager to see my accomodation. I was completely taken aback as I entered the room. For a hotel in a major city, when space is extremely limited, it was almost impossible to believe just how large the room was!
Having never been to Chicago before, I had no idea what part of the city to stay in. Thus, I took a chance with the Gold Coast neighborhood, which is where the hotel is located. This historical area is filled with designer boutiques, gourmet restaurants, and high-rise penthouses all within walking distance. The Waldorf Astoria Chicago fits in perfectly with its glamorous surroundings.
The bedroom in the Deluxe Suite is designed with a strong aura of simple elegance. The bed was so comfortable that I never wanted to leave it — in fact, we hardly left our room for the three days I was there. My excuse as to why we hardly saw any of Chicago: the Waldorf Astoria Chicago.
The flat-screen TV and iPod docking station were the perfect amenities in the already perfect room.
You know that you are in a luxury hotel when there is a TV in the bathroom mirror. It might be ridiculously indulgent, however I loved being entertained while relaxing in the bathtub or getting ready to go out. I also very much enjoyed the designer bath products and terry-cloth robes.
The Deluxe Suite had another room attached to the bedroom that functioned as a kitchen/living room/office. In an appointed nook there was a sink, an ice maker, a refrigerator, and a microwave.
My absolute favorite part was the fireplace, which immediately turned on and filled the room with warmth with a press of a button, and that was a necessity since we were visiting in December.
Every luxury hotel should care about the details like the Waldorf Astoria Chicago does. No matter where you look, there is a special touch that adds sophistication and class to make certain that you will want to return over and over again for years to come.
I love the bathroom, but I really love the fireplace. What a cozy touch!
So fabulous, right!?! I can’t tell you how much time I spent in front of it! 🙂

You are so right!
The hotel is gorgeous! It is even more beautiful than I could have imagined! I am so glad you made the trip to Chicago. I can’t wait for you to come back! xo
I wish that you could have stopped by for some fireplace time haha! Oh the conversations we could have had with some bubbly! 🙂
It’s a beautiful blog indeed. Beautiful pictures, beautiful stories and beautiful author.
I really enjoy reading all your posts 🙂
Awww wow thank you for such an awesome compliment! I’m VERY touched!!!
I love when a hotel room comes together into perfection. So often you might get one element, but miss another, seems like your room had everything. Chicago is awesome although I have only ever been in April/May so don’t know what it is like in the cold, but I imagine…brrrr!
We got SO lucky with the weather. It was cold, but not THAT cold! Still, a fireplace in the room was perfection. The Elysian didn’t miss one element.
You are a brave brave woman for traveling to Chi in Jan. Love that clock and fireplace!
Hahaha gotta embrace your fears in life, right? 😉 Plus I had a hot blooded Latin to keep me warm next to the fireplace. XO
Great branding! I have never been to Chicago which is surprising, really! Love the lucite pulls on that dresser. And funny that I was just thinking this morning that I would love to replace our ugly digital alarm clock with a vintage piece like that!
I had never been to Chicago either, craziness! But I will definitely be back, LOVED the city and hotel. I was crazy obsessed with that clock!!!
My god it looks like heaven!
It was absolutely heaven!

Wow, that place looks incredible!
These pics are awesome!
Tell me about it!
It is always good for me to hear feedback on hotels in the Chicago area as I often get asked where to stay. Most people are looking for more budget places, but in case people are looking for luxury I know where to send them thanks to you.
It is very true, Elysian is not for people on a budget, but it’s definitely a splurge that is worth it if you can! 🙂
