Looking to go all-out to surprise your lady this V-Day? Let me recommend the Elysian Spa and Hotel. It's gorgeous and lux and everything you hope for in a luxury hotel. But the spa....it's the spa that truly shines. Having had the pleasure of visiting recently, I can assure you that this is the place to go if you desire socks to be knocked off.
Check out this package offer from the Elysian:
"Gentlemen, we did the work for you—all you need is love to complete this ultimate Valentine’s Day package. A car and driver will pick you up (anywhere in the Chicagoland area) and whisk you away for a night in a Premier Gold Coast Suite, where, upon arrival a beautiful bouquet awaits. Cozy up to the fireplace with your sweetheart, then, head to RIA, Elysian’s two-star Michelin restaurant, for a romantic, four-course dinner for two. During dinner, surprise your beloved with a gift of either an afternoon of beauty at the Elysian Spa or a shopping excursion with our renowned fashion stylist. Before settling in for the evening, enjoy an after-dinner toast to the two of you in Bernard’s, our intimate hotel bar. Wake to breakfast in bed or in Balsan and head to the spa for relaxing Elysian massages, the perfect ending to the perfect getaway."
Ladies, not expecting a gift? Treat yourself. This place will make you greatful you don't have someone to take time and money away from spending more time here. I recommend the facial--but everything is top-notch.
