The Peninsula Chicago Introduces "We Meet Again" - A Distinctive Offer and Charitable Giving Program
A celebration of “The Seven Loves of The Peninsula Chicago” allows guests to rediscover the exceptional cuisine, activities, culture, and community in the city. Guests contribute to the love and support for Chicago, with a one-for-one meal donation program.
For nearly a century, The Peninsula Hotels has been more than a global leader in luxury hospitality; the hotels have also been cherished second homes for guests, employees, and the larger communities where they are located. As each hotel re-opens its doors, guests are extended a warm invitation to return to some of their favorite familiar experiences or explore new activities with the “We Meet Again” campaign.
The Peninsula is the ideal destination for restorative comfort and the creation of precious memories, and for enjoying special time with friends and family, a long-overdue holiday, or a celebration of missed milestones.
