Yelp Chicago Gets In Touch With Its Feminine Side

After a short and fast summer and with the onset of cooler temps, Yelp Elites were in need of a little pampering. It’s a good thing the Spa at Dana was the perfect host for All The Yelpy Ladies. That’s right, this night of wine, spa treatments, good convo, and lite bites was only available to the ladies of the Chicago Elite squad. Sorry fellas.

Upon arrival into the tranquil spa area, our lucky ladies checked in at the front desk, received a welcome card outlined with the services they had registered for and were then led to the locker area to change into a plush robe and slippers, and prepare for a few hours of bliss. This nirvana state was added by spa foods like fresh veggies and fruit, assortment of fancy cheese, chicken satay, smoked turkey wraps, and 18-vegetable salad from Aja and red & white wine served by staff.

But the real reason for the season was the services. Astounded attendees had their choice of two services from a list of: energizing leg & foot treatment, aromatherapy massage, hot oil hair & scalp treatment, customized facial, and/or a microderm facial. Between services, Elites either meditated in the relaxation (enjoying strawberry/cucumber/melon water all the while) or retired to the entry lounge for more conversation, wine, satays and wonderfully stinky cheese.

As if the evening didn’t bring enough surprises, each attendee left with a goodie bag filled with product samples and a Dana Family card good for discounts at all hotel businesses. The luckiest lady of them all was Stacy Y who won the raffle for a day spa extravaganza. Who knew early autumn in Chicago would be so pleasant? The ladies of the Yelp Elite Squad, that’s who. And now, thanks to photos from Bernard Costa and reviews you’ll find here, you, too, can get a taste of the good life as well.
