Serenity in the City: Pamper Yourself at Chicago’s Le Méridien
Do you ever have that moment where you’ve got to get away but you don’t have time to take a full vacay or can’t escape work for more than just a few hours? I know I’ve been there.
It’s time to raise the curtain on Le Méridien Chicago – Oakbrook Center and bring this amazing urban retreat into the spotlight.
Located a short ride outside the city, Chicago’s Le Méridien offers plush accommodations, two chic restaurants, a spa that rivals all others, and is just a short stroll from the luxury boutiques at Oakbrook Shopping Center. Having undergone a $25 million renovation last year by parent company Starwood, no amenity was overlooked. Whether you’re looking for a stay in Chicago with the calmness of the suburbs or a quick departure from a hectic schedule, look no further: Le Méridien has got you covered.
As someone who admittedly works too much and still squeezes in time for fitness every day, I have a tendency to push my body to its limits. I recently had the pleasure of escaping for a few hours to one of the hotel’s spa suites for a rejuvenating deep tissue massage.
Needless to say, I was rejuvenated by my massage, which incorporated some Thai stretching techniques into the session, and left my muscles more relaxed than they’d been in weeks (in addition to a pretty strict fitness regimen I also bartend a few days a week and put a lot of stress on my legs).
Next time you’re in Chicago, hit me up for a girls’ day out. We can relax at Le Méridien’s spa and then hit up Longitude 87 for some craft cocktails. I mean, what else is pampering yourself about?
