The Low Down


Look Good: The 14,000-square-foot spa, separated by women’s and men’s lounges, channels a Roman bathhouse with its mosaic-tiled spas and lap pool, whose bottom floor is patterned after a bed of roses. Celebrity makeup artist Darcy McGrath is at the spa twice a week. Call for an appointment.

The Extras: The top floors of the hotel are homes to Chicago’s millionaires, who paid coin for custom details such as domed ceilings, marble foyers and professional-grade kitchens.

Know Before You Go: The hotel’s restaurants (Ria and Balsan), bar (Bernard’s) and spa (the Elysian Spa & Health Club) are open to the general public, but you must be a hotel guest to use the fitness equipment and pool.
