• Le Meridien Chicago Partnered with ESPA

    POSTED October 8, 2014
After a recent $25 million transformation, Le Meridien Chicago – Oakbrook Center has announced an exclusive partnership with luxury spa brand ESPA. The hotel’s signature Spa Suites features a shower steam room with ten body sprayers, tub, and relaxation lounge. Including an array of facial and body treatments, the Spa Suites offer personalized consultations and vast relaxing services for a variety of needs. With over 20 years of expertise, ESPA products are natural, made in England and blend active marine ingredients with plant sources.

The Spa Suites offer guests a detailed consultation, an in-depth skin analysis, a steam room, soaking tub and large relaxation lounge. The lounge allows guests to relax in the comfort of an oversized sectional sofa or engage in a curated spa treatment service as they please.

The ESPA Personalized Facial includes a deep cleansing, exfoliation, steam and gentle extraction where needed, and a treatment specific massage and mask. The Men’s Purifying Facial combines a relaxing shoulder, neck, face and scalp massage with a tailored focus to individual skin needs. To complement the Men’s Purifying Facial, the Life & Firm Eye Treatment firms and hydrates the skin to reduce appearance of fine lines and tension from eye-strain and computer headaches.​ Guests also have the option to choose from four ESPA Body treatments, including the Aromatherapy Massage, Swedish Massage, Deep Muscle Massage, and the Salt & Oil Scrub.
