With a sleek new oasis focused on all things well-being, Swissôtel Chicago brings new meaning to the suite life.
Envious views bathe the Vitality Suite in natural light.
If “wellness” is a watchword for today’s sophisticated traveler, Swissôtel Chicago’s recent contribution to the conversation certainly resonates. Touting self-care accouterments throughout, the riverfront property’s magnificently sprawling Vitality Suite (just the second of its kind from the brand) pampers the mind, body and soul over five relaxing rooms, including an oversized bathroom with spa-grade appliances, an airy office with sitting/standing desk, and ample lounging space to sip from a selection of infused water varietals and explore executive chef Dan McGee’s exclusive, seasonally rotating menu of healthy fare (past bites include chocolate chip quinoa cookies).
The bedroom soothes with a calming color palette.
It’s all the more impressive when framed by the south-facing vistas—hello, Buckingham Fountain and Museum Campus— which, owing to architect Harry Weese’s all-glass building design, soothingly bathe the minimalist-inspired suite’s clean lines, understated furniture and gentle hues with generous natural light. “[It’s] a noncluttered space, and it’s easy to relax in,” notes Christy Hubbard, director at The Gettys Group, which designed the tranquil, 1,700-square-foot stunner.
The "Wellbeing Wall" makes working out a snap.
The pièce de résistance? A decked-to-the-nines, NOHrD-created “Wellbeing Wall” where guests can banish the day’s stressors with gym equipment, a water rowing machine or totally of-the-moment Peloton bike on their own or through customized workout programs broadcast on the room’s wall-mounted TV screen. Observes general manager Ted Selogie, “The privacy of this space provides that opportunity for our guests to come in, rewind, relax and really do all of the things they want on their own time.” From $1,200 per night, 323 E.
