Amazing birthday weekend at our favorite hotel!

Champaign, Illinois

My wife and I spent a wonderful 3-night stay at the beautiful Waldorf-Astoria hotel located in the nice Gold Coast neighborhood in early February. Our check in was seamless as we were greeted by the personable doormen. My wife enjoyed a relaxing massage in the spa while I has a great workout in their fitness center. As Hilton Diamond members, we also enjoyed having nightly drinks in their beautiful bar in order to use our daily $30 credit. BUT the most amazing part of the weekend was when room service brought my wife a bottle of champagne on our first night to celebrate her 54th birthday. THANKS to Management for such a class act!! This is why this well-run hotel is our favorite resort in the country! KEEP UP THE GREAT JOB!

Wonderful stay at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago

Saint Charles, Illinois

When we come to Chicago, this is our first choice of the premier hotels. We love the design of the rooms, hotel, bar and the central location. Being a Hilton Honors member, typically we get our room upgraded to a Jr. Suite and could not be happier with the accommodations.
