Chicago’s Le Méridien and Neiman Marcus: An Anniversary of Class and Sophistication
The elite of Chicago gathered together Wednesday for an evening of perfect style and elegance at the beautiful Oakbrook Center, celebrating the one year anniversary of the world class Le Méridien Hotel with Neiman Marcus. Demonstrating hospitality and appreciation, the two historic brands showed Chicago what chic is all about.
Greeted at the entrance with beautiful, statuesque Neiman Marcus models draped in their new fall collections, the event offered an array of designer French cocktails, gourmet hors d’ oeuvres, and a complimentary massage. Surrounded by curated contemporary art and eclectic, ambient music, guests may enjoy local coffeehouse-inspired culinary offerings and experiences by day and a wine-inspired setting by night. Artfully designed Le Méridien Chicago Oakbrook Center offers 3500 square feet of event space, 172 guest rooms and suites and two luxurious Spa Suites. Creative people gathered to converse, debate and exchange in Le Méridien’s innovative and reinterpreted traditional hotel lobby Le Méridien Hub.
Le Méridien Chicago Oakbrook Center sits comfortably in the heart of this affluent community’s epicenter. Revitalized with mid-century modern flair, Le Méridien Chicago Oakbrook Center offers local inhabitants and cosmopolitan travelers alike a chic alternative to Chicago’s towering metropolis. Surrounded by sophisticated shops and upscale dining, Le Méridien Chicago Oakbrook Center invites shoppers to conveniently feed their curiosity.
The hotel invites you to taste the uncommon. Le Méridien Chicago Oakbrook Center offers cuisine infused with the freshest and finest ingredients, all combined to maximize flavor and texture. Indulge in authentic Spanish Tapas at El Tapeo. This chic 9th floor restaurant and lounge offers the flavors of Spain through culinary experience for romantic parties of two, groups of 200 or anywhere in between.
Partnering with Neiman Marcus for an amazing night was brilliant, adding an extra touch of sophistication to a class act. A brand that does not need much edification, the name alone carries its rich history and impeccable reputation. When a girl gets an invite to a Neiman Marcus affair, she attends. Clean lines, perfect pair of heels, and not a hair out-of-place, clientele of the famous fashion retail filled the event each, in her own way, with a reminiscent touch of the classic Jacqueline Onassis.
A brand that has been around since 1907, Neiman Marcus is a testament that service and quality never go out of style. Catering to the 2% income bracket, the Neiman Marcus Group retails high-end luxury apparel, shoes, accessories, jewelry, cosmetics, furnishings, antiques, rare books, and decorative home items. The store also offers moderate-income customers a more standard selection of fashions and department-store items. Special promotions and services, many of which were developed by Stanley Marcus, made Neiman Marcus a retailing legend. The company’s glossy Christmas catalog has become famous for its sensational displays as well as its bizarre, exotic, and unique Christmas gift creations. Neiman Marcus gained a reputation as “the store that can get you anything.”
This one year anniversary celebration with the Le Méridien Chicago Oakbrook and Neiman Marcus was a night to remember. A special thank you to publicist Noreen Heron for the exclusive invitation and taking care of I On The Scene.
