Becoming a parent for the first time is one of life’s greatest joys. It’s also a lot of work and really stressful. Plus, there’s no doubt you’re quickly going to miss those pre-baby date nights, quiet time, and sleeping in. So, one Chicago hotel decided to celebrate those final childless nights. Before the round-the-clock feedings and sleepless nights begin, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Chicago–Magnificent Mile created the over-the-top, Parent’s Ultimate Last Night Out package.
Late summer into the fall is the busiest time for births, according to data. Take advantage of the last few previous nights alone by creating a memorable night out in downtown Chicago. What does that entail exactly?
Well, guests get a $200 Lettuce Entertain You gift card that gives them access to more than 120 restaurants in the city, a goldplaited gift card for mom to be treated to a blowout and makeup, an Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salon gift card for a pedicure, a personal driver throughout the stay, reserved pool chairs, and evening pampering services. When you return to your room, chocolate-covered strawberries, bathrobes, sleep masks, specially crafted non-alcoholic beverages, and Beer Butler program will be waiting.
And speaking of the room. You’ll get one night in The Mile, a brand new collection of luxurious suites and studios, complete with personalized concierge service and plush bathrobes. Daily breakfast is also included.
But, the highlight has to be the chance to either take a helicopter ride over the city or setting sail on the Chicago River on the Odyssey Architecture Lunch Cruise. Or, perhaps it’s the fact that you can sleep in after your night out on the town as late check-out is part of the package as well.
“We want our families and our soon-to-be-families to feel at home,” said Eric Thieling, general manager, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Chicago—Magnificent Mile. “We want parents-to-be to have a memorable night in Chicago experiencing the best of the destination before their little one arrives.”
How much will this pre-baby celebration for two cost? Rates for this package start from $1,400 per night.
