The Ritz-Carlton Chicago

Arrival/Check-in: If there is one thing about Ritz-Carlton hotels that will always be consistent, it’s class. When I first set foot on the Ritz’s Chicago property, I was instantly reminded of the years of experience and class this hotel brand carries. The lobby is not flashy or overwhelmingly grand. Its style is classic and commands respect. Check-in was quick and quiet, and my bags were promptly delivered to my suite. (30/30)

Park Hyatt Chicago

Arrival/Check-in: I arrived late morning after a short flight from Boston. It was my first visit to Chicago, so I was looking forward to discovering what about the city led just about everyone I told about my visit to respond with a dreamy look that said, “I love Chicago.” I got my first hint when the doorman opened my cab door and greeted me by name. How did he do that? I still don’t know. Check-in was quick and easy. Before I knew it I was opening the door to my guestroom. (30/30)
