It’s the fabulous
Waldorf Astoria (formerly The E l y s i a n)
188 guest rooms
averaging 889 square feet.
No other downtown hotel
boasts private terraces.
Located steps from Oak Street
and Michigan Avenue shopping.
While the Eiffel may not be viewable…
this skyline will be!
Did I mention I just booked a suite

FUN and deliciousness
are on the agenda.
Also spontaneous Windy City frolicking.
The 4th floor boasts a
14,000 square foot spa.
Will this blogger ever leave the 4th floor?

A TV in the mirror is always a good sign.
Have we seen enough images of the Elysian?
Peace to you right where you are.
