The Chinese New Year may have technically come and gone Feb. 5, but the Year of the Pig lives on in Chicago. Continue spring festival fun at The Langham, Chicago, with Traditional Chinese Medicine wellness treatments at the Chuan Spa; a blend of Chinese and Western cuisine in the Pavilion or at Travelle; and an assortment of traditional teas at Wedgwood.
However you wish to celebrate, The Langham, Chicago (and other Langham properties around the world) offer the traditional Eastern touches you’re looking for coupled with impeccable attention to detail, elevated service and subtle elegance. Spend the day in luxury, wining, dining and relaxing, or check-in for a weekend experience.
No matter how long you stay, there are a few easy ways to unwind in style and elevate your New Year.
Beginning with afternoon tea, guests enjoy a fun Eastern twist on a classic English tradition. Stick to the theme of the New Year and choose a traditional Chinese white tea with hibiscus flowers, rosehip and pink rose petals, or keep it classic with English afternoon tea and sweets. Afternoon tea is available for $70 per person before gratuity and tax.
Any New Year celebration wouldn’t be complete without a bit of “me” time. After all, this is the time of year we swear we will take better care of ourselves and others. Check out the Chuan Spa’s list of Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments and offerings, including a round of acupuncture and massage therapy. The treatment lasts about 90 minutes and costs $375.
If you’re just dipping your toe in the self-care pool and not quite ready for acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments are standard at Chuan Spa Chicago, so take your pick from a number of other options.
Stick around for some fine cuisine at dinner and soak up the last of the festivities. You may be just steps from downtown attractions, but the pull of Travelle’s dinner menu may keep you in.
