Hot List: The Elysian Hotel Chicago

10May10

With a Marc Jacobs store in the lobby, Barneys New York and Prada across the street, this is Chicago’s ultimate new luxury hotel! Yes, I know were still in a recession but sometimes a girl still needs to be pampered damn it! And since that fab trip to Morocco or Dubai is permanently on hold (thanks Wall Street), how about a mini-getaway to the Windy City’s hottest lux hotel!

The perfectly proportioned new 60-story tower models tailored interiors beginning with the lobby’s Christian Dior–inspired kick-pleated drapes and (an homage to Chanel designs) a crystal starburst chandelier, patterned mosaic floors, and curvy wall grillwork.

Guest rooms are similarly composed, and both indulgent—high-thread-count Rivolta Carmignani sheets, TVs built into bathroom mirrors—and functional (including Carrara marble wet bars).  A 14,000-square-foot spa and gym play it Greek with column-flanked hot tubs and Hellenic wall mosaics to mark the men’s and women’s locker rooms. With its no-tipping policy—a gratuity is included on food and beverage orders and at the spa but will be politely declined elsewhere.
