You'll be welcomed at check-in with a glass of premium bubbly to toast to the occasion, and then the presidential treatment really kicks in.
Stay in the Suite of Presidents (pictured above), where Harry Truman delighted staff with a private piano performance of the "Missouri Waltz." And where President Eisenhower watched his 1952 nomination for president on TV. These are just a few former guests and politically significant moments that have happened in this grand suite. This exceptional three-room suite captures all of the distinguished elegance and subtle refinement of true executive power.
Or choose the Smoke Filled Suite (pictured above), the only one of its kind both for its design and its political significance, as the site where cigar-smoking Republican leaders brokered the presidential nomination of Warren G. Harding during the 1920 Republican Convention. Consequently, it was here that an AP reporter covering the convention coined the widely known phrase "a smoke-filled room." The room also offers panoramic views of Lake Michigan, a formal foyer, powder room, dining room that seats eight and a luxurious bedroom. Note: historic suites are subject to availability.
Channel your inner fashionable First Lady (à la Michelle Obama or Jackie O) or get outfitted in your own Presidential power suit with a one-on-one personal shopper who will help you dress the part with a $500 shopping gift card. Show off your ensemble with a night on the town or while exploring one of the many nearby attractions nearby, including the Art Institute, Grant Park and the Field Museum.
Rates start at $2,016 (to commemorate the election year); two-night minimum stay is required. Rooms and suites are subject to availability. Taxes and gratuities included.
