Sometimes love can use a little luxury, and sometimes it can use a lot. If it’s serious pampering you seek, indulge in a couples getaway at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago, an impossibly posh hotel on the Near North Side that drips with glamour and elegance. Put the world on hold and introduce your significant other to an oasis of luxury, where your every need is fulfilled before you even realize it. Hold hands as you cross the threshold of your guest room, where you’ll find every conceivable amenity, from a 42-inch TV to a surround sound system for getting the mood just right. You could easily spend an entire weekend without leaving the room—lounging about in fluffy robes while dining on foie gras torchon from the hotel’s chic European bistro, Balsan—but make sure you emerge at some point to explore the rest of the hotel. Put on your swimsuits and head to the lap pool, where you can enjoy an invigorating aquatic workout surrounded by thousands of mosaic tiles, or test the limits of your body with a Pilates or Gyrotonic program. Then make your way to the Elysian Spa for massages and body treatments that will make you feel ten years younger. As the sun sinks below the horizon, treat your significant other to cocktails at Bernard’s Bar, a sophisticated boîte where ordering a classic Rob Roy or Sazerac just feels like the thing to do. When you return to your room for the night, don’t be surprised if you find a heart of rose petals on your plush king bed. Nobody knows romance like the Waldorf.
