The Elysian Hotel Chicago was recently attained in a collaborative endeavor between Hilton Worldwide (the parent company of Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts), an Equity Group Investments affiliate and the Elysian principals. Under the new ownership, the Elysian Hotel Chicago will officially become the Waldorf Astoria Chicago on February 1, 2012 when rebranding is complete.
Located in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood, the property has quickly become one of the city’s premier luxury, boutique hotels since its opening in 2009. The hotel has 188 guestrooms and suites, featuring marble bathrooms, soaking tubs and fireplaces. In addition to the superbly decorated guestrooms, the hotel is home to two trendy culinary establishments – the Balsan is a “contemporary bistro showcasing rustic fare” while RIA is “a two-Michelin-star restaurant offering modern, seasonally driven French cuisine”.
Among the hotel’s many amenities, their 14,000 square foot spa and health club, featuring a fitness facility, a mosaic-tiled lap pool, whirlpools, saunas, steam rooms, nail spa, barber suite, relaxation areas and tailored spa services, is truly a marvel!
In addition to being a Five Diamond property, the Elysian Hotel Chicago has also received the below notable designations since its opening a short time ago:
- #1 hotel in the United States according to readers of Conde Nast Traveler
- #1 on U.S News & World Report’s “Best Hotels in the U.S”
- #3 hotel on Travel & Leisure (highest rated hotel ever for being listed for the first time in this publication)
- Rated #1 hotel out of 168 on Trip Advisor
- Rated #1 business hotel on Trip Advisor
