Our Take: This fashionable and relatively new hotel on East Walton gathers acclaim from recent guests for its elegant design and prime location in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood. Formerly known as The Elysian Hotel Chicago, the Waldorf Astoria Chicago also wins favor from vacationing couples; some unexpected but appreciated amenities include the in-room fireplaces and 400-thread count Italian bed linens. Recent guests also say the hotel deserves kudos for its European bistro-style restaurant, Balsan. But if you're hankering for something more substantial than bistro eats, recent guests recommend exploring the Gold Coast's acclaimed restaurants and bars that are all within reach. And when you need a break from the Chi-town bustle, relax in the 14,000-square foot Elysian Spa. Hilton HHonors members can accrue or redeem points here.
