So a lot has happened since my last update back in NYC. I might even keep updating this entry as I read into my diary and remember more that happened. Mike arrived in NYC the day before we departed which was tuesday the 10th of september. ME and mike then drove to Williamsport PA, where we stayed with Mike's aunt and uncle. We enjoyed lots of wine and were fed a delicous chicken parm dinner. Not Much to report about this particular part of the ...
... Shore Drive, floored by the azure vastness of Lake Michigan. With temperatures promising to break records and the sky a vibrant blue, the shore felt almost Caribbean. By the time made it to Wrigley Field, the street heat was becoming unbearable. After a couple quick shots of Wrigley Stadium, we headed for the South Side of the city for a jaunt through the campus of the University of Chicago and over to Chicago's very ...

Stupid Phegley soon kept getting mentions on twitter and soon became #StupidPhegley.
With this in mind I decided that if I wanted to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Hotel Chicago
My family of five (3yr old, 8yr old and a 12 yr old) spent the weekend down in the city for my husband's birthday. We had the family plan which had a second adjoining room with two twin beds and a rollaway for only $190! They had kid size robes, a teddy bear to take home, fun touches in the kids bathroom and games and coloring things in the room! My children were thrilled and had an incredible time. They loved the pool (and hot tub) and thought they were in heaven.
The service is fantastic (as one would expect at a Four Seasons), but the room was a real disappointment. The moderate/superior/deluxe rooms are all TINY and haven't been renovated in 15 years, so they feel very dated. Compared to the Peninsula, which has modern rooms with huge bathrooms and nice TV's, the Four Seasons was physically a real disappointment.
Having stayed in fifteen different Four Seasons properties around the world, in addition to Mandarin Oriental's, Rosewood, Orient Express, & Aman properties, I was so surprised at our recent experience in Chicago. The Four Seasons Chicago typically scores as one of the top 3 "city" hotels in the USA in most all the travel surveys. We had a Four Seasons Executive Suite booked, and I must say it looked "tired". The furniture, carpeting, and furnishings were well-seasoned. The bathroom (typically a Four Seasons highlight) was marginal at best. There was a single bathtub/shower combo more in tune with a Marriott. The service in some areas was wonderful and other areas weak. The Cafe, The Bar, and room service were plaqued by mediocre service while "Seasons" restaurant and the bell staff were delightful. The entire stay was so sub-par versus years of consistently superb Four Seasons service. I would recommend the Peninsula (1 1/2 blocks away) as a better Windy City alternative. Even as a newer hotel, they consistently rise to the occasion. Additionally, the front desk indicated room renovations are scheduled to commence January 2006. They need it... it's been 15 years!!!
I am writing this from room 4119 in the Four Seasons. The sun is rising over the lake and streaming through the window. The view is spectacular. I've stayed in many hotels in Chicago, but avoided the Four Seasons due to cost. After much disappointment elsewhere, I elected to try it and see.
Stay here; it is worth every penny you will pay. The service is wonderful, the staff can not do enough, and the food is better than the rooms. And the rooms are great.
I don't think I'll see staying elsewhere in the future unless the market crashes even more. This is the best hotel in the Windy City.
An amazing hotel. Unfortunately, we stayed only one night enroute to Europe and just had barely enough time to enjoy the lovely room and fabulous room service. Our waiter even made our cosmos to order in our room!
The location can't be beat for shopping or just seeing the town.
Our room was beautiful and had a massive bathroom with seperate adjoining dressing areas. And aahhh delicious smelling L'Occitane toiletries.
The Four Seasons is a beautiful hotel with a perfect location (near the Hancock Building and Water Tower Place, right off Michigan Avenue). The accomodations were very comfortable, the staff was professional and attentive, and the food was delicious. I expected to enjoy every minute, and I did, until...bedtime. Unexpectedly, the wind kept me up all night. It was like being on a boat; the building kept creaking and knocking due to the high winds (I was on the 39th floor), and I only got 1-1/2 hours of sleep despite the earplugs furnished by the hotel.
No surprises here. The Four Seasons experience is something special, and they deliver the goods. Hotel is extremely well located.
Physically, a beautiful grand place that is well-maintained. Redundant staffing is always available to make your stay pleasureable, but is never intrusive. Great Chicago informality, but still invested in giving a high level of service. Seasons offers true fine dining. Check in was easy, and we were given an upgrade. Tasteful room was as silent as a vault, and included a humidifier, which was a great touch in Chicago winters. Room service was excellent and timely. Highly recommended.
Four Seasons is the BEST!!!
My wife and I have stayed at both the Four Seasons and the Ritz Carlton numberous times over the last 4 years. The service at the Four Seasons is excellent. Very expensive. Very formal. You will not feel comfortable in jeans. The rooms are second to none. Walking distance to many fine resturants and about 2 miles to Navy Pier. Shopping at 900 North is very expensive. Try Watertower and Michigan Avenue.
Ask About Construction - Jackhammering Overhead!!
We just returned from our honeymoon in Chicago at the Four Seasons. Amazingly, they forgot to mention during reservations and at check in that they would be jackhammering marble on the floor directly above our room. Needless to say the construction began at 9am. I was also told by an Asst. Manager that it was only happening on one day. That again was untrue. I will give the Spa a true 5 "exceptional" since they were so wonderful. The Spa is soundproofed so you do not hear anything other than the soothing music. A must if you plan to stay at the hotel. For us, it was the only positive.
