What’s a woman to do when the kids are away and it’s time to play? Plan some much-needed time with the girls, of course. Escape the ordinary and spend a weekend with your girlfriends in one of downtown Chicago’s trendiest hotels, theWit, and you’ll all come out feeling like a million bucks. You’ll know this is no ordinary hotel as soon as you roll your Kate Spade overnight bags into the stylish lobby, where a massive pop art mural overlooks an ultramodern chocolate-brown space trimmed with blue and gold accents. Take it all in, because it gets even better when you open the door to your luxury suite.
Give in to the urge to jump on the impossibly soft pillow-top bed and have a laugh; floor-to-ceiling windows and spa-like bathrooms are definitely something to get excited about. Find the room overrun with makeup, clothes, and shoes as you begin the process of getting ready for an evening at ROOF—the hotel’s aptly-named rooftop lounge on the 27th floor—where sweeping views of Chicago are rivaled only by sophisticated cocktails and bites. You’ve booked massages and pedicures at Spa@theWit for the next morning, so you can gossip and relax in your plush robes in the Whisper Lounge, a cozy hideaway with tea and fresh fruits for finding your personal zen. After a bonding weekend like this, you’ll be more than ready to tackle the week ahead.
