After navigating floating platform staircases, dodging living-room-level bosses, and searching for randomly appearing bathroom keys, most homeowners come to regret purchasing houses built by video-game designers. Today's Groupon offers respite from the chaos: for $120, you get a one-night stay in a classic room at Swissôtel Chicago (rates vary depending on date; average $249), located on East Wacker in the Loop.
With recently upgraded rooms that bestow maximum comfort and an ideal location in downtown Chicago, Swissôtel Chicago is a welcoming respite for weary tourists and business travelers. Settle into one of the luxurious classic rooms, which have LCD flat-screen TVs, a soothing ergonomic chair, and oversized executive desks for businessmen to stand on while shouting "You're not the president?!" into the phone. Holidaymakers can also sink into the 42nd floor penthouse fitness center's bubbling jacuzzi or take a quick dip in the heated indoor pool, both of which have panoramic views of Lake Michigan.
With two onsite restaurants, the European-influenced breakfast spot, Geneva, and the steak-and-seafood-slinging The Palm, Swissôtel Chicago offers plenty of savory cuisine for refilling stomach tanks.
