Gwyneth Paltrow Hearts The Elysian Chicago
May 12, 2011By: Mary Winston Nicklin

The Elysian ChicagoIt's easy to fall for The Elysian-- the Chicago hot spot-- so we weren't surprised to see GP's rapturous description of the hotel in her latest GOOP newsletter. (Which, by the way, really made us want to dig into some delicious Chitown grub.) Here's what she loves about the hotel that's made such a stir on the Gold Coast since it opened in 2009. To quote:

I stayed at the newly opened Elysian hotel and I loved it. I love a new hotel and they have really done it right. I loved its pared down aesthetic and its many shades of grey. It was chic and comfortable, and I also loved being in the heart of everything but not right on Michigan Avenue. The restaurant was delicious and the spa was lovely—I treated myself to a great massage before an overnight flight. Great service—elegant yet cool. I will definitely be back. The hotel has two restaurants and I stopped at Balsan for some great American bistro-style food, with oysters on the menu and flatbreads made in a wood burning stove.
