AN INSIDE LOOK AT THE RITZ-CARLTON, CHICAGO

Thanks to a $100 million in renovations, the Ritz-Carlton, Chicago in Chicago’s 74-story Water Tower Place has experienced a rebirth. Found on the 15th through the 30th floors, the space boasts renovated suites and a number of new facilities and amenities including a spa and a restaurant. San Francisco–based design firm BAMO led the renovation project which has pumped a contemporary spirit into the 42-year-old property. All rooms feature views of Lake Michigan, the Navy Pier, or the city.
