Pendry Chicago Review

by Haley Fogarty

Aug 6, 2022


August 2022

ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: After a rainy morning of travel to Chicago O’Hare International from Philly, an easy cab ride dropped me right at the door of Pendry Chicago around noon. A friendly doorman welcomed me by requesting the name of the reservation so he could alert the front desk of my arrival. There I was informed I had been upgraded to a Corner One-Bedroom Suite, a room on the 32nd floor boasting views of the Chicago River and the city’s skyline through multiple bay windows. I made my way to the golden elevators to explore the room and relax for lunch.

GUEST QUARTERS: The corner room was really a lovely surprise. Since our trip was just after St. Patrick’s Day, I was able to enjoy the last bit of the green Chicago River, dyed for the festive holiday. The door to the suite led me into a common area equipped with a dining table for four, a couch, coffee table, stocked bar and television. To the right I found the most beautifully decorated bathroom I have seen. The furnishings and décor were right up my alley with dark green marble features, golden fixtures, a large bath and glass shower. A king-sized bed sat in the middle of the bedroom, separated by a door from the rest of the suite. Another window in the bedroom created tons of natural light as I finished up the work day from bed. The suite was organized and clean. The décor enhanced the room and created a chic energy.

SERVICES/AMENITIES: Right off the bat, I was greeted in my room with a fruit platter and still and sparkling water, along with a handwritten note from the staff. I appreciated the personalization, but it truly did not stop there. Each time I left the property and returned, a precious gift of macaroons greeted me on my pillow, sometimes even twice a day!

The suite included turndown service, as I noticed dimmed lighting, fresh water and fluffed pillows each evening upon returning from dinner. One night, I even utilized the property’s fitness center. A Peloton bike caught my eye, along with other state-of-the-art equipment.

Pendry features a high-class bar, Bar Pendry, as well as a comfortable seating area next to the lobby perfect for a day spent working on the go. Clearly, attention to detail remains a top priority at Pendry in terms of both décor and energy throughout the property, as well as how employees welcome and host each and every guest. I loved my time spent at Pendry Chicago.


Room service menu is extensive, service was quick and food was delicious.

A helpful and willing concierge is accessible most of the day.

Pendry welcomes hotel guests as well as events and walk-in diners at Bar Pendry.

The Party Starts Late and Lasts Past Dawn in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Argentina, comes to life at night. Translating to “good airs” or “fair winds,” Buenos Aires is an autonomous district filled to the brim with eclectic European architecture and a rich cultural life. The multicultural city, a melting pot of language, history, incredible food and music, comes to life at night. When you travel to Buenos Aires, be prepared to eat late, choose from hundreds of restaurants and thousands of bars and clubs, and dance beyond dawn. The city’s nightlife, as varied as it is intense, allows you to dance to whatever rhythm takes your fancy. A city that oozes sex appeal, it proves dynamic and passionate, and the beauty and rhythm will get under your skin for an amazing trip.
