O'Hare's International Terminal 5 is being redeveloped by Westfield, and there's one development in particular that's caught our eye. XPresSpa, now open, marks the first Chicago airport spa (hallelujah!)
Located post-security, the welcome spot offers massages, nail treatments, facials, pedicures, and hot shaves. It also sells bath and body products, and—we kind of love this—rents out yoga mats so stressed-out travelers can practice in the terminal.
Plus, you're in luck if you're looking for a great hostess gift, or want a little taste of home on the road. The products on sale represent local companies such as Abbey Brown Soaps and Sweet Beginnings LLC's beelove products.
UPDATE: A Westfield rep just confirmed that there will be more luxury retail openings at O'Hare over the next few months. On the roster: boutiques for Michael Kors, Ferragamao, and Emporio Armani.
