The start of the new year isn’t so much about resolutions for me as it is about the need for a refresh. You know what I mean. A getaway to clear your mind even if just for a few days. The reason why a Swissotel Chicago staycation with the beauty of the city architecture seen from every window, relaxing environment and close proximity to all things Chicago is just the remedy to welcome in 2022.

A Swissotel Chicago Staycation

If you haven’t considered a staycation before, I highly recommend it. Whether you reside in Chicago or live in close proximity (driving distance if air travel is not being considered), you must book a stay at the Swissotel. This four-diamond, all glass hotel has stunning views from each room and is just blocks from Lake Michigan, The Magnificent Mile, Millennium Park, Navy Pier and the Chicago River.

As you enter your home away from home, you notice how spacious the room is especially in a big city hotel. Waking up to these views is breathtaking whether you are looking at the city skyline or peacefulness of Lake Michigan and Navy Pier’s Ferris wheel.

While Chicago in the winter may not appear to be the most desirable time to be here, it’s actually ideal when it comes to going to the world class museums, ice skating along the lake in Maggie Daley Park, attending any of the numerous theater performances (ie.“Frozen”)  shopping outdoors along The Mag Mile or at any of the indoor malls (ie. The Shops at Northbridge, 900 N Michigan Shops, Water Tower Place) and dining at our award-winning restaurants. For more fun activities and places to explore, visit Choose Chicago
