We Believe.... In the Swissotel Santa Suite




Its that time of year again! Our month of December has so far been jam packed with activities to make the most of this magic season. We kicked off our holiday season with a sneak peek inside the Swissotel Chicago Santa Suite.

There are santa experiences, those from our past and those of the present, long lines, fussy kids and leaving with the thought "was that really all worth it" (sometimes with a crying santa pic in tow) and then there is the Swissotel santa suite.

You see Santa does travel and during the weekends, hes parked his reindeer, hung his suits, and moved into the Swissotel right here in our own backyard. When santa moved in he brought his magic with him, by transforming the 41st floor, 5 room, Presidential suite into a over the top space complete with themed trees (one even has a live moving train) and weekly activities that will make any childs eyes fill with wonder.

We had the luxury of joining Santa for a sneak peek of the Santa Suite before it opened to the public. We exited the 41st floor and were immediately greeted by Santa's elves for a tour of the entire floor and the AMAZING suites offered for the holiday season- followed by our "official entrance" into the suite.




Once inside Aydin was provided the opportunity to hand pick an assortment of beautiful flowers from Flowers for Dreams (finished bouquet below)



off we wandered into the magical dining room set for a party that dreams are made of. Set perfectly themed for each of Santa's favorites from Misfit toys to Reindeer himself browse the table and giant gingerbread house a site for candy loving eyes!


The overwhelming feelings of pure joy spilled through the space-the way the light and the experience shined in our eyes is one for the books. We kept strolling through to peek into the various themed trees- from raggedy ann, to a real live working train tree! We parked in front of a tree to decorate some cookies- no limits to how much frosting or sprinkles made for a perfect time.

A walk around the suite with views of Navy Pier and Lake Michigan brought to THE man himself. Waiting patiently with a soft welcoming wave- we walked right in and Aydin right into his lap whispering dreams of "firetrucks, cars and a baby sister (sorry santa)". After waiving goodbye to Santa we were able to walk through to his private quarters where we finished our trip off with a letter to the Man himself (bonus he writes back) and a peek into his closet.
