Our stay of the week – Kimpton Gray Hotel, Chicago

Get down to business at Kimpton Gray Hotel, a sleek new property in the Loop. This stylish Chicago city base, decorated in the namesake colour, seeks to emulate the style and sophistication of a well-tailored suit from London’s Savile Row.

Based on the reviews, it’s succeeding: U.S. News & World Report included the property on its Best Hotels in Chicago of 2017 list; AAA gave it a Five Diamond Award; Condé Nast Traveler bestowed a Readers’ Choice Award 2017, and TripAdvisor members helped it score one of the top rankings in the city, many of them citing the smart design (which includes a tie bar, for actually sprucing up suits) and upscale ambience.

The decor of the accommodations is one part mid-century modern and one part modern, in the 21st-century sense: each comes with pendant lamps, a piped bedspread and touches of brass and gold foil, for instance, alongside a contemporary workspace with extra multimedia ports.

There’s quite an array of slick spots for eating and drinking here, too – from Boleo, a year-round rooftop lounge and music venue that dishes up small plates of Peruvian and Argentinean street-food favorites, to Steadfast, a dining room, heavy on the teak, zinc and leather, that specialises in New American, Mediterranean and Portuguese cuisine.

Elsewhere, the second-floor spa offers relaxing body treatments, while Petrosino’s Parlor promises to pretty you up for meetings, events or just days of city slicking and sightseeing, with haircuts, blowouts, face cleansings, polish changes and straight-razor shaves.

We’re offering a stay in a King or Queen Queen Deluxe room from £78, on a room-only basis.
