As you hustle off busy Michigan Avenue into the Park Hyatt, you’re met immediately with a hush—the type reserved for museums, galleries, and very nice hotels. Here, in fact, all of the above actually come together. In the lobby area is a museum-style collection of fossils, and a sculpture by Robert Rauschenberg sits by the check-in desk. “Before that we had a Gerhard Richter,” the concierge tells me. “That just sold for $37 million.” Well then. An Asian sensibility permeates the place, and each of the spacious rooms has a sumptuous cushioned window seat looking out on the city. You can also see that view from the soaking tub, which is separated from the room only by a sliding door. The onsite restaurant, NoMI, is wonderful. Want a fun fact? The Hyatt has a local tie: It’s owned by Chicago’s Pritzker family. You’ll likely see and hear their name a number of times during your visit, particularly if you see a performance at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park.
