Whether you're having afternoon tea in the lovely lobby, dinner at Travelle or spending the night in Chicago's Langham Hotel, there's just something so...civilized ...and pretty...about it all. Maybe it's those proper London roots (Chicago's Langham is the fourth only to open in the USA outside of Europe). Or more likely (for me anyway,) it's those pink accents (the tea! pens, stationary, padded satin hangers in the rooms, not to mention the Champagne) and the handsome butlers and the lavender-scented special request pillows... It's such a girlfriend's getaway kind of place. Love its great downtown location too--especially because it's also really near P.O.S.H., one of the best little independent shops (artful vintage finds with lots of French accents) in Chicago.
