Waldorf Astoria Chicago

The Waldorf Astoria Chicago is reminiscent of the Parisian glamour-era and located in the heart of the prestigious Gold Coast neighborhood, steps from Michigan Avenue and Oak Street retailers, restaurants, and nightlife.  Recognized as one of the best hotels in the world, the 215 luxurious guestrooms and suites exude a residential feel richly appointed with contemporary amenities, innovative technology, and True Waldorf Service. Even more new feature at Waldorf Astoria Chicago is “Non-Tipping” policy.

Ranked the #1 US City Hotel in 2014 by Conde Nast Traveler Gold List and #1 Hotel Spa in the US by Conde Nast Traveler Readers' Poll,  the Waldorf Astoria Chicago boasts stunning interiors, expansive rooms, gracious service, and unique amenities that combine to create a travel experience like no other.

The jewel of America's heartland, few cities in the world can match the character and culture of Chicago. Chicago blends the style and sophistication of one of the largest cities in the United States with the friendliness and approachability of the Midwest.

Renowned for its architecture, Chicago is home to some of the tallest and most impressive buildings in the world. Architects Frank Gehry and Jaume Plensa have made Millennium Park a top destination for stunning examples of public art as well as a favorite spot for taking in outdoor concerts, splashing in the fountains or sipping cocktails at open-air cafes.

Whether in town for business or pleasure, visitors are drawn to the natural beauty of Lake Michigan with its sandy beaches and jogging paths, world-class dining, distinguished museums, and downtown neighborhood entertainment options. The bustling theater district and celebrated theater companies offer options ranging from improvisional comedy to traditional theater to dance productions. Home to twenty-one Michelin-rated restaurants, Chicago is truly a dining mecca.

Shoppers revel in the 460 storefronts lining the Michigan Avenue's Magnificent Mile, located next to Waldorf Astoria Chicago hotel. The most extraordinary brands in the world are represented there and on neighboring Oak Street, the most exclusive shopping destination in the city. Chicago's neighborhoods, including Wicker Park, Bucktown and Lincoln Park among others, offer charming alternative shopping and dining options.

A transportation hub, the downtown area is reached easily via a network of expressways and public transportation. Chicago has been called one of the most walkable cities in the United States, some routes winding through lovely parks and along the lakefront.

Artwork at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago includes photography, paintings, drawings, fibers and sculptures from over thirty international contemporary artists.

A classic, French dining experience reminiscent of 1920’s Paris, Margeaux Brasserie is James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Mina’s moveable feast. Offering traditional brasserie fare, Margeaux Brasserie offers a tip of its hat to Chicago with the warmth, hospitality and dining sensibilities synonymous with the Midwest.

Located on the third floor of The Waldorf Astoria Chicago, Margeaux Brasserie is sure to become a destination for lively drinks, convivial dining, and a bacchanalia brunch.

Chef Michael Mina’s love note to Paris, Margeaux Brasserie celebrates French cuisine with an elevated menu highlighting bold, craveable flavors, locally-sourced ingredients and prepared using classic technique.

Signature dishes include starters such as Duck Wings À L’Orange and Escargots Bordelaise, as well as entrées like Steak Frites, Dover Sole à la Meunière and Rohan Duck Breast.

The beverage program pays tribute to the café culture of Paris through an impressive wine and spirits collection, as well as a dynamic cocktail program that utilizes fresh ingredients with a section devoted to classic French cocktails.

The wine list focuses on French & US wines, while a roving champagne cart will offer rotating selections on a nightly basis. Highlighting both local and regional brews on tap, as well as in bottles and cans, Margeaux Brasserie will also offer imported beer from France. Rounding out the beverage program, a spirits collection boasts impressive collections of Cognac and Pineau des Charentes, a regional French aperitif.

From Chef Michael Mina, Petit Margeaux presents a classic, French patisserie that melds Parisian café culture and Midwestern hospitality, right in the Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago. Located on the first floor of The Waldorf Astoria Chicago, Petit Margeaux will offer a charming gathering place for the neighborhood and a destination for Francophiles, as well as pastry and coffee aficionados.

Transporting guests to a café along the Champs-Elysees, Petit Margeaux is a café and patisserie serving a savory menu, alongside decadent pastries and bakery items, all day.
