This past weekend was the second year that I make the treck through the snowy mitten to visit Chicago for the annual Chicago auto show. The previous year we stayed at the Hilton Chicago, but I did not do as much exploring as I did this time around. The hotel opened in 1927 which makes it a haven for beautiful classic architecture and timeless decor that blankets the entire hotel!
The most elegant rooms that makeup the Hilton Chicago are the beautiful rooms for lounging with big windows to let in light and observe the Chicago skyline. I felt like a victorian walking the rooms of the hotel such as this.
A little less down to Earth, but overlooking Chicago was absolutely gorgeous with snow looming over the whole city. Having this view from a warm hotel room made everything seem like it was just a picture in a frame rather than an arctic tundra below me.
Speaking of the cold, this was my attire for the majority of the weekend in Chicago. They don’t call it the windy city for nothing!
Nothing but awe can only describe the suites that the Hilton Chicago has to offer. I felt completely indulged in luxury for the weekend.
As I explored more, I came across the International Ballroom which had these fabulous chandeliers! It is little yet grand scale details that make this hotel so marvelous and extravagant.
As marvelous as the hotel was and the snow to look at this weekend, it definitely did not feel the same to the senses. I managed to bundle up and catch this shot outside the hotel. Ultimately I had another splendid weekend in Chicago. It was the perfect midseason getaway where I got to pack up, leave town, and feel inspired again. I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s weekend and are staying warm. I know I’m trying! Have a good one!
