Agent Tips

  • If you stay during the winter months, the hotel converts their terrace into an ice rink!
  • The Peninsula has 4 orchestra seats for every Broadway show in Chicago. They sell that at a very competitive price to guests who spend a minimum one night stay at the hotel. Ask your advisor to check availability for you!
