Just off Chicago's famous Magnificent Mile, The Gwen (formerly the Conrad Hotel) is a AAA 4-Diamond bastion of elegant design suited to its upscale surroundings. Located in a landmark skyscraper built in 1929, The Gwen is Chicago's first Luxury Collection property and reflects the style of its namesake, artist and sculptor Gwen Lux.
Guestrooms are tailored to individual preference including a "sleep menu" with a choice of seven different kinds of pillows featuring relaxing aromatherapy scents or full-body options. Bathrooms feature marble touches, oversized showers and deep soaking tubs; basic Wi-Fi is free in all rooms with upgraded speeds available for a fee. The gym at this hotel has a host of extras, including complimentary earbuds, fresh fruit, chilled towels and, of course, state-of-the-art fitness equipment.
Beyond the hotel, guests can explore the ritzy neighborhood's shopping and dining -- the hotel is connected to the Shops at North Bridge Mall and is steps from the Mag Mile's Nordstrom's outlet and the Italian dining superstore Eataly. In fact, the hotel can actually arrange to have items from the Shops at North Bridge brought into the hotel for you to try on, turning your hotel room into your fitting room.
Note that the Gwen is undergoing some renovations to update the 5th-floor bar and restaurant, but floors that are being updated on have been completely closed off and guests are unlikely to be impacted. Visitors staying through April receive complimentary breakfast on the 10th floor while work is ongoing.
