Description


Two words: Fifth Avenue. You don’t come to New York City to get away from it all; you come to be in the middle of it all. The Peninsula occupies fantastically central real estate so you can catch a play, do some heavy-duty shopping or visit the Central Park Zoo without spending much time in that infamous NYC traffic.

The Peninsula New York has a long-standing tradition of excellence that has resulted in lots of awards and loyal customers. The aesthetics—Beaux-Art architectural features and a grand lobby staircase—wow you from the start, and the recently renovated rooms don’t disappoint from there. Speaking of the guestrooms, we recommend leaving the entry-level accommodations alone and splurging a little on one of the 54 larger, more sumptuous suites.

The hotel went all-out on the spa, which was recently named the #1 Hotel Spa by readers of Conde Nast Traveler. It’s a 35,000-square-foot, tri-level gem that includes a glass-enclosed pool. The lineup of elegant yet hip lounges is also a good bet.

In the heart of Midtown, the historic Peninsula is an appealing blend of modern and timeless; and it is, hands down, simply one of the best hotels NYC has to offer.

The Peninsula Chicago

108 East Superior St, at North Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL, United States

Romantic Family Friendly Culture Food & Wine Nightlife Pet-friendly

TZELL SELECT Perks

Complimentary Continental Breakfast

High-Speed/Enhanced Wi-Fi

Description


The Peninsula is a five-star luxury hotel that doesn’t pretend to cater to anyone but discerning travelers.  Still, they’ve got the Midwestern hospitality part down and can offer guests absolutely anything their hearts desire. And if high-end retailers make you giddy, you can’t beat the location among the glitziest stores in town.

The hotel is on the top floors of a high-rise building, rather than occupying its own building. You take an elevator to the lobby, where you discover that throughout the Peninsula there is a surprisingly successful blend of Midwestern, Asian and European influence; the three restaurants are a perfect illustration. The building’s classical façade recalls the Art Deco design of Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive in the 1920s and 1930s. The interior has a decidedly European flair that extends to the 339 rooms—all of which are scrumptious, a rare feat.

You know the amenities are outstanding when they attract a city-wide clientele. That’s certainly the case with the magnificent spa and the three critically acclaimed restaurants. But only guests get access to Peninsula Academy programs like a behind-the-scenes experience at fabulous design center Merchandise Mart.

The Peninsula Chigaco is a fabulous location situated in an even more fabulous city!

Description


In 1939, on the eve of a royal visit by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth to Vancouver, the Hotel Vancouver opened its doors and cemented its place in history as one of the grandest, most luxurious hotels in Canada. This imposing grande dame was designed with an ornate chateau style in keeping with the architecture of Canada’s famous railway hotels. And, like its fellow railway hotels, the Fairmont Vancouver is one of the most impressive hotels in North America and has remained one of the city’s local icons for nearly a century. 

Located on a peninsula sandwiched between Vancouver Harbor and the English Bay, the Fairmont Vancouver is a perfect blend of urban energy and coastal calm. The guestrooms are designed in a classic European style, with a subtle color palette, stately headboards and elegant curtains. 

From the moment you set foot in the hotel and are warmly greeted by the two golden retriever Canine Ambassadors, you’ll realize you’re in a place that has hospitality down to a science. Every detail is impeccable and caters to even the hotel’s smallest guests. Kids can partake in a special afternoon tea just for them that includes bubblegum tea, finger sandwiches and fruit tartlets, while your four-legged friends will have treats, toys, and scheduled pet activities to give them a relaxing vacation, too.

The Fairmont Vancouver’s newly renovated Notch 8 Restaurant and Bar is decked out in wood-and-brass design flourishes that echo its gilded railway hotel past. Menu offerings include beef prime rib, seafood hot pot, and a daily rotisserie special that ranges from jumbo prawns to leg of lamb. After dinner, head to the bar for a cocktail and rub elbows in one of Vancouver’s most social spots. 

In terms of great weather, the best time of year to visit the Fairmont Vancouver is in the warmer Summer months, but regardless of the month of the year, a stay at the Fairmont Vancouver is always a wonderful idea.
