The Langham is part of the very fabric of downtown Chicago. Designed by acclaimed architect Mies van der Rohe, the hotel is home to the Chuan Spa. Taking its lead from traditional Chinese practices, they specialise in holistic treatments relating to the five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Book in here and your experience will start with the Chuang bathing ritual before moving on to a treatment (or treatment package) of your choosing. There’s also a steam room and a healing liquid pool, plus a variety of traditional Chinese medicinal remedies on offer to help you feel like the best version of you.
If you’re not careful, Chicago can be a pretty stressful place, much like any bustling city. From zipping between must-see tourist attractions and scrummaging around the city’s magnificent shopping districts to dancing your socks off at one of the Windy City’s famed watering holes, a short weekend in Chicago can easily turn out to be pretty darn exhausting.
So how do you make sure you don’t burn out in Chicago? Book in a spa trip! There's nothing more refreshing than a facial, a massage, or a manicure. Or even just a steam in the sauna to release all your worries. Below we’ve laid out the best spa hotels in Chicago. And now… relax.
