The KN Tranquility Suite at the Hotel Monaco
Baby showers tend to be very baby-centric, but why is that? The baby isn’t even here yet! We should change the tradition and make it all about pampering the Mom-to-be.
That’s what Chicago’s Hotel Monaco wants to do. Now through October 31st they are offering a Baby Shower Bliss package at the KN Karen Neuberger® Tranquility Suite. The room has amazing views of Chicago and a fountain. It’s soothing and relaxing and the sheets sound nice enough to steal.
The package includes:
- A three hour party
- Up to 10 guests
- hors d’oeuvres and “mocktails” or a $100 room service credit
- Mom-to-gets to stay overnight
- KN Karen Neuberger® Maternity Pajamas and Infant Socks
Interested? You have to book at least 14 days in advance through the Hotel Monaco catering office at 312-960-8533. In August they offered a Girl’s Night In Package for four with mani-pedis. This hotel seems to get what appeals to women!
