Executive Leisure. I might have just made that phrase up, but I think it works. What else would you call the rare instances when you can “make it rain” business-wise while being a man or lady of leisure? Last week, the two-room, two-bath, fully-stocked, best-view-of-the-city type accommodations I received at the Intercontinental Chicago reminded me what life is really all about… Room service, wi-fi and a huge pool.
I jest of course, but Executive Suite #4000 was a little slice of awesome. And since the suite has more bedrooms than I have bodies, I called Twitter gal pal @FeliciaCago and asked her to take a mini-staycation with me.
She said yes.
So there we were… two ladies taking full advantage of our all-to-brief Michigan Avenue address and lifestyle. We lounged the day away in robes, ordered room service, experience the attached Michael Jordan Steakhouse and Eno Wine Bar. Oh.. and that pool. The Intercontinental Chicago’s junior olympic-sized pool is something right out of a movie. A fancy movie that I want to watch again and again. (see video)
