Our family has stayed at some fantastic hotels around the world, e.g., The Milestone Hotel in London, England, The New York Palace Hotel, NY & Hotel Okura, Tokyo, Japan - and I have to say the Elysian Hotel in Chicago, IL, is in a class by itself. From the moment you drive into the surprising and beautiful courtyard (you cannot believe you are in the middle of a major urban centre in America) and are greeted warmly by professional, (unpretentious), welcoming staff - you know you are in for a wonderful hotel experience. The Elysian opened in December '09, so everything is new; but, the property has an 'old world', classic feel with beautiful, contemporary detailing. The fabulous amenities (e.g., restaurants, spa & fitness centre), location (!) and the staff are all tremendous and you will feel at home here. We encourage you to visit their website to see for yourself. Elegant, comfortable and impeccable. It is a MUST-stay!
