Inside The Stunning Chicago Athletic Association

Inspired by the glowing citrus notes of our Ginger Pomelo fragrance, we ventured to the Chicago Athletic Association to escape the bore of a daily routine. For decades, the Chicago Athletic Association has been an athletic and social club for the city’s elite. After undergoing an extensive restoration, the recently reopened premier hotel is now host to some of the best views, restaurants and nightlife in the city. Read on for our recommendations to consider when planning your next luxury weekend getaway.

Pair Comfort with Culture

There’s no need to leave your luxury accommodations when you select a hotel with a vast and unique interior architecture. Look for spaces with an extensive history that feature restored elements, such as fixtures, finishes and grand marble staircases.

Value Your View

A destination with gorgeous vistas that can be seen from your balcony instantly elevates any sip of champagne, in suite massage or private, four-course meal. Whether you’re looking for urban landscapes, white sand beaches or mountain scenery, consider accommodations with rooftop restaurants or open open-air terraces that offer commanding views.

Balance Leisure With Entertainment

Choose a resort that features a variety of dining ambiances and nightlife options — all near or within your hotel, so you can nosh and sip at your leisure.
