The Sofitel Chicago Water Tower
The Sofitel nabbed our attention this year with their summer showing of the traveling Parisian photography exhibit, “Fashion Stills.” Featuring breathtaking photographs of couture designs, runway shows, fashion moguls and models, the already elegant lobby was made even more chic with the presence of French Polka Galerie’s art. The exhibit has since moved on, but the lobby remains the picture of class and sophistication: plush seating, unique architectural detail and a grand staircase all lend their airs to the famed hotel’s entrance.
