It's been a hot minute now since the Bottega Veneta suite at the Park Hyatt has opened to luxury travelers, providing a quiet retreat at the top of Michigan Ave. The cashmere throws, the woven leather mirrors, Poltrona Frau furniture, romance lighting, New Zealand wool carpets, and arty photography all make the experience what it should be, but there's more than that. Like any luxury experience, there's perks.
To aid in getting the best sleep possible, Bottega guests paying rack rate ($4,500) for the room receive a woven leather Bottega Veneta eyemask, multiple arrangements of fresh flowers and a 2PM checkout (because you were up too late last night). Additionally, the most important part ‘ the mini bar is stocked with enhanced options including 1 box of chocolates, 1 jar of cookies/candies, 1 jar of house made ice cream, 1 jar of house made sorbet, whole fruit, Red & white wine, Champagne, melon balls, a big berries bowl, Greek yogurt, house made granola , 2 large Evian, 2 large Perrier, 1 jug of 2% milk for your cookies), house made lemonade and some basic mixers. With swank like that, you'll never want to check-out.
