Forget about a martini, you need ice cream with all the fixins and she's the woman to get it done
Feeling too sloth-like to make your way to the lobby bar or rooftop lounge? Call on the Four Seasons’ Martini Man and his traveling martini cart, and for just $20 a pop, he’ll shake and serve a chilled martini of your choice (apple, cosmo, chocolate or old-school dirty). When winter sets in, opt instead for the Hot Chocolate Doc, who can infuse warm spirits into the steamy beverage ($20).
If cocktailing is easily trumped by sweets, ring instead for the Ice Cream Woman, also at the Four Seasons. She’ll show up at your room with her old-fashioned soda fountain cart, ready to serve you ice cream and toppings like gummy bears, chocolate chips, sprinkles, cherries and whipped cream ($12).
Who can make the sunrise, sprinkle it with dew, then show up at you door at the Ritz-Carlton, too?
At the Ritz-Carlton, Chicago, kids won’t believe their eyes when the Candy Man shows up at their hotel room door. They’ll get to fill a bag with lollipops, candy buttons, jawbreakers, chocolates and more. The best part? It’s a complimentary service offered to parents at check in.
Both hotels were fairly booked up through the end of September, but we did find rates from $469 at The Four Seasons Chicago and from $479 at the Ritz-Carlton,Chicago.
