Trump International Hotel & Tower opened in Chicago in early 2008.  It had everything ~ residences, hotel rooms, meeting space, ballroom, bars, restaurants and my favorite, its fabulous Spa.  Here is where luxury was the exemplar and defined the legendary Trump Style.  Since it’s opening, I’ve had the privilege of reviewing the Spa a few times.  I’ve experienced extraordinary treatments that epitomize the best of spa, which is to relax, renew and restore.  Here’s a video clip of me querying Mr. Donald Trump at the splashy official opening and media event for Chicago’s finest,

When Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago opened, it never had a beauty salon, despite the discriminating guest and local having everything else at their disposal,  Clearly, by finally opening a beauty salon at this location, it would secure being a one-stop experience for all-things esthetic and upscale. 

All good things are worth waiting for ~
With typical Trump Style, the Anthony Cristiano Salon was launched.  Cristiano brings with him decades of prominence among the celebrity, print and photography set with his impressive talents, and is highly regarded.  I had the pleasure of attending the recent invite-only Grand Opening.  The upscale Salon features some of the industry's finest luxury brands such as Leonor Greyl Paris, Phyto Paris and Caron Paris.  The Salon's minimalist design has a pristine white palette with black and bold chrome accents throughout.  The visuals are stunning and definitely upscale, fresh and trendy.  Guests will also love the massive windows throughout that give them a cityscape view that showcases this beautiful and vibrant city.  The Anthony Cristiano Salon is located on the mezzanine level; as a reference, the Spa is located on the fourteenth floor.

Near Chicago’s tony and iconic Mag Mile, Anthony Cristiano Salon is another reason to experience the finest Chicago has to offer.  The legend is now complete and continues to dazzle ~ in true Trump Style…..

  1. It is a very good idea of starting a spa in a huge hotel so that the guests not only gets the facility for living but they can also get all type of beauty treatment by going to the spa.
