Checking In On: The Soho House Chicago
The Soho House Chicago has been open for a week now and since we're still, um, working on our Chicago travel plans, we thought we'd do a cursory check of recent internet reactions.
The hotel surprisingly lacks a TripAdvisor page, so we're unable to find out the nitty gritty details of like quirky elevators or loud vents or issues with WiFi. But here's what we've gleamed about the new hotel from both the mainstream media and the (probably more important) social media:
New York Times: There's a custom, on-site boxing ring coming soon.
New York Post: Nine different products from Cowshed line the showers.
Eater Chicago: Go inside the Chicken Shop and Pizza East, both London-based restaurants that have spun off to Chicago.
Chicago Mag: The "ultra-indulgent" treatment from the Cowshed Spa is actually just a pedicure.
And now some social media reactions:
The pool on a cloudy day:
The pool on a better day, with WiFi:
Green juice at Allis restaurant:
Observation about the crowd:
More photos of the hotel from Soho House's Facebook page. (We're a little worried they have no good shots of the rooms. You know how we feel about that.
Rates at the Soho House Chicago are currently going for $240 a night for a Small room.
