THE VIBE: Girls, pack your hair ties! We’re headed to the windy city. This infatuating place has people flocking from far and wide to experience all of the quirky features that make Chicago one of a kind. Located in the middle of the ‘Loop’ in buzzing downtown Chi, The Silversmith Hotel is oozing with elegant architecture; but the time altering history and discrete elements of luxury are what makes it the ideal resting place when traveling for either business or pleasure.
THE SLEEP: A perfect blend of comfort and elegance is what to expect while staying at The Silversmith. Get your Z’s in one of the 144 deluxe guestrooms. The rooms are broken down into deluxe king or double and premium king – each with 12-foot ceilings, oversized marble bathrooms and sophisticated décor. For the business lady, the hotel is equipped with their own business center that comes equipped with event planning, messenger and catering services available to take a little stress off of a work trip. For those on the go, there are Keurig Coffee Makers with complimentary tea and coffee plus dry-cleaning service.
TRY IT ON:
THE TASTE: Greasy Chicago street-dogs not your thing? It’s not ours either. Save your skin and waistline by dining at the Adamus restaurant and lounge for refined contemporary American cuisine – that is NOT cooked on a roller. The artfully crafted breakfast and dinner fare is both innovative and simple while the contemporary bar quenches our endless thirst for the finest of provisions. The vibe of this restaurant and lounge is as energetic as Chicago itself. The standout feature is something dwindling in most modern-day watering holes…a space that encourages socializing! Adamus incorporates communal tables designed to provoke captivating liaisons or mindless chit-chat. Who knows…maybe you’ll you’re your next ex-husband over aperitifs.
THE LOCALE: To experience Chicago like a local we have some dos and don’ts. When ordering a carbonated beverage, do not order “soda…” To Chicago locals, it’s “pop!” Another tip? Stay away from asking where the train is. Locals refer to it as the “El.” We know…it’s a lot to take in. Do get your hands on a Jibarito – a sandwich that substitutes bread for plantains with meats, cheese, lettuce, sometimes tomato – and definitely visit one of the largest fountains in the world, The Buckingham Fountain in Grant Park for a dazzling water show. Don’t put ketchup on your hotdog (its forbidden) and do go shopping on the Magnificent Mile. Do visit The Ledge – the glass floor balconies hang 1,353 feet over Wacker Drive- located in one of the tallest buildings in the US, Willis Tower.
