As we all suffer the midyear slump, summer getaways are on our minds. Fashion fans might like to consider making a pilgrimage to Chicago's Elysian Hotel. While the Windy City doesn't immediately scream style, the hotel's Marc Jacobs' package does.
The offer coincides with the opening of Marc Jacobs' only Chicago boutique. Known as the Bed, Breakfast, and Marc Jacobs deal, it doesn't offer bad value by designer standards.
The deal includes accommodation in an Elysian guestroom or suite, complimentary breakfast in bed, and a Marc Jacobs beach tote and limited edition towel to take home. These Marc Jacobs accessories are just the thing for looking the part when sunning yourself near the Elysian pool. With rates starting at $415 a night, I'd say that makes a pretty good deal.
So who needs New York then? I'll bet Chicago is sounding like a very attractive proposition for Marc Jacobs loving stylistas. They've got until Labor Day to take advantage of this great fashion package.
