The Waldorf Astoria Spa is housed in the sultry Gold Coast Chicago hotel of the same name. This 14000 sq. ft. spa facility offers a range of personalized massages, body regimes and beauty treatments.........with the emphasis on personal. The spa is graced with an assortment of treatment rooms; gender-separate locker rooms with jacuzzi's, sauna's and steam/hammam rooms. Enhancing this wellness space is a heated, inviting indoor pool, a state-of-the-art gym and a health club that offers Pilates, Kickboxing and more. I'm not a spa zealot but after my unruly flight, a massage was in order. After an audit of the spa menu, I opted for the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage. I don't know why the salt has to come from as far away as the Himalayans but it sure did the trick..... my aches subsided and I felt rejuvenated and pampered.
