Although it’s touted as the most relaxing time of year, summertime always ends up crowded with must-attend events, busy weekends away, and major work priorities. Give yourself a staycation on National Relaxation Day this August 15 at Hotel Monaco Chicago, where a two-room Tranquility Suite gives guests plenty of ways to unwind in style.
Don’t let the hotel's location in the bustling Loop fool you—the relaxation suite tower sits high off the street, its plush window seats overlooking the Chicago River doubling as “meditation stations.” Spa-like amenities include sound machines, towel-warmers, massage rollers, and a large, two-person soaking tub. In-room spa-services and dining options created for Kimpton Hotels by star nutritionist Joy Bauer complete the tranquility package. For the ultimate rejuvenation, guests can select the "black out" option at check-in, fully unplugging by leaving all electronics at the front desk. To book the suite, call 866-610-0081. 225 N. Wabash Ave., 312-960-8500
