My favorite part of traveling is getting to thoroughly enjoy every hotel I’ve stayed at. I recently stayed at the Ambassador Chicago during Pitchfork Music festival, and absolutely loved it. The moment you walk into it’s stunning lobby, you’ll get the feeling that this building has played an important role in Chicago’s history. The Ambassador has been an iconic property in the city since 1926, hosting some of the most well-respected names in film and music from the 20th and 21st centuries. I couldn’t help but stare at the black and white images of Frank Sinatra, Liza Minnelli, and Judy Garland over at it’s famous restaurant, Booth One. The hotel stays true to it’s rich history, but with an exciting and brand new renovation. The new Ambassador Chicago now feels modern, but still has that classy and vintage feel, inspired by it’s Jazz Age heritage. You’ll notice large white pillars, sparkling chandeliers, and stunning white accents in the decor against dark wooden ceilings. The lobby is dark and cozy, perfect for a round of drinks with the team, while the rooms feel bright and airy, especially in our loft suite. Imagine extra large windows, gorgeous white shades, a super spacious living room. I think my favorite part of our lovely stay was getting to enjoy the Gold Coast area. The hotel is nestled in the most luxurious residential area, just a few short blocks to Chicago’s Michigan Avenue (yes, I couldn’t help but pop into the Chanel store). I could just walk around of hours, peeking into neighboring mansions, drooling at all of it’s beauty. I’ve been to Chicago a few times before, but this trip beats any other. I think staying at a place that tells the iconic stories of Chicago so well, made it all the more special.
