April 11, 2016 -

Spring is shopping season and it's nearly time to put away the heavy coats and clunky boots for light fabrics and open-toed shoes and The Ritz Carlton, Chicago has the perfect opportunity to update your spring wardrobe - with a wellness twist - with the “Shopping is my Cardio” getaway package (starting at $429 / night).

Get your steps in and enjoy exclusive shopping discounts for your retail therapy. After a successful day shopping, drop back in to the hotel for a pampering spa treatment (we recommend a pedicure for those new peep-toe wedges!) as well as to sip and savor the delicious flavors and antioxidants of dark chocolate and red wine in your comfortable room.

With Mother's Day right around the corner, it's the perfect way to spend some quality time with mom. Other fun angles for this package include spring girls getaway and bachelorette parties - with advance notice for bigger groups, the hotel is able to work with some of the stores in the Water Tower to open early and even have a personal shopper showcase spring and summer fashions, exclusively for the group!

Shopping is my Cardio getaway package:

• Valet parking included
• $50 spa credit (perfect for an express mani/pedi)
