The Rose Hotel Grand Opening party was AMAZING.....the end.
Seriously, I really can't say what I enjoyed the most because the entire experience was phenomenal! Let's start from the beginning:
We pulled into The Rose Hotel parking lot and it was PACKED! My immediate first thought was that we were going to be forced to park in the lot across the street and truck it through the snow- wearing suede, pointed toe, open sided heels at that! (No, I didn't think this through lol). Luckily for us, as I drove around the parking lot I noticed a sign that read "Valet Parking". JACKPOT! As we approached the front entrance, I looked toward the bottom of the sign trying to find the pricing and guess what.....IT WAS FREE!

Living in a money hungry city like Chicago, we all know what a luxury Complementary Parking is...especially Valet Parking. Well done Rose Hotel!
We parked in the Valet line and was approached by one of the attendants....a very handsome one I should say :). He opened my car door and greeted me with a smile, and gave me his arm to hold on to. He asked me what my friends name was, addressed her as such and guided us into the hotel to be handed off to a staff member.

My jaw literally dropped when I walked into the hotel! There were pink, blue, and purple (or just a darker pink.....I've self diagnosed myself with color blindness LOL ) lights illuminating from every corner of the room. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L ! A mixture of glass, marble and wood décor throughout. To the right of us was the Dj booth, full service bar, a Smash Cake Table, Fireplace, a room full of Rosé & cotton candy, lounge seats scattered throughout, and a backflipping man in a black/white stripe onesie! (YES, I said that). Super chill yet very classy!

After walking in and absorbing all of the aesthetics (Shoutout to Patty for being so patient with us lol), we were instructed to the sign in table, where we picked up our names bages with a pastel pink rosebud pined to it and dropped our coats off.

Once we finished the check in process, we begin to walk down the hallways to the other side of the hotel and there they were! Just as beautiful as can be. The Rose Ladies!

The Rose Hotel is really outdoing themselves at this point and I am beyond impressed!
And it just got so much better!
Walking towards what looked like a rose garden backdrop for pictures but as I got closer, I noticed there was a hand with a glass of champagne sticking out of it.
Now, at this point we've already been by the bar and were working on drink number 3 LOL So of course, I thought my mind was playing tricks on me when I saw someone take the glass of champagne and the hand disappeared then returned with yet another glass of wine.
Umm, excuse me....WHAT just happened?!
Yes, you heard it right! They had a rose wall that handed you glasses of champagne as you walked by. MIND BLOWING! So very creative. Still trying to figure out how I can get that wall at home :) LOL.

Now, for the other side of the hotel.
To the right of the wall of champagne was a room filled with green lit umbrellas! A super simple touch but it looked amazing! There was another bar, photobooth, tasty bites from Rosebud Restaurant and Dave & Buster's, and a room of champagne, beer, and liquor brands giving out samples (as if the two open bars was not enough LOL)
The Rose Hotel seriously knows how to party!
Last but certainly NOT least, was the tour of the hotel suites by the LOVELY MJ!
We started at the top floor and worked our way down. You will notice that every floor has its own exotic wall design as you get off the elevator. As you get on the elevator, you will notice the decor on the elevator door, each representing a different view of downtown chicago. The level of the view also changes with each floor- the top floors had higher views of the city while the lower floor had ground level views. So very creative!

My favorite thing about the suites and standard rooms is that they are both very spacious, each having its very own unique style! Marble and glass galore! Black and white wall paintings, chic decorative pillows, luxury style furniture...need I say more! See for yourself!

Overall, the experience was amazing and I am glad that we were able to be a part of this experience! The hotel is beautiful, the staff were outstanding, the food was delicious, and the drinks were top notch! Special thanks to everyone at The Rose Hotel, you all showed us a great time and we will definitely be back. Can't wait to book my room! But don't take my word for it! Go see for yourself.
