Tucked away in the heart of downtown is THE GWEN HOTEL; a luxury modern uptake on a 1930’s Chicago vibe. Nestled in between The Shops at Northbridge and Eataly, this posh place is a fabulous break away from the hustle and bustle of the shopping district. Located on the fifth floor above Nordstrom it’s the perfect location for the avid shopper and city discoverers. The beautiful decor is inspired by sculptress Gwen Lux, the hotel’s namesake. It’s ultra sleek yet cozy lobby makes you want to sit and sip a glass of wine to take it all in. If you enjoy a city view you must visit the outdoor patio which has glamorous gas lamps and modern outdoor fireplaces. It’s comfy corners make for an enjoyable afternoon chat in the midst of gorgeous city scapes.
The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated with a modern splash. Statement wallpaper in the room gives homage to an edgy vibe. Bathrooms boast of large sinks and bold marble with separate bath tub and shower. Of course, a decent size hair dryer for guests is always a telling sign of attention to detail!
We recently stayed for a much needed break away from reality! A family friendly destination, where we enjoyed the hotel hospitality along with the flexibility of being able to take advantage of so many renowned stores and restaurants only a stones through away.
Thanks so much for reading!
