Beginning February 1, 2015, guests of The Ritz-Carlton Chicago, A Four Seasons Hotel, will have the opportunity to participate in an Extraordinary Experience. Guests can gather family and friends to join Toni Kukoc, a member of the famed mid-90s Chicago Bulls dynasty, on the Hotel’s newly-renovated, behind-the-scenes half basketball court.
“We are always looking for ways to ‘wow’ our guests,” says Tom Segesta, The Ritz-Carlton Chicago General Manager. “Chicago and the Bulls go hand-in-hand. With a legendary player such as Toni Kukoc onboard, we are not only offering a truly Chicago experience, but one that is extravagant and exclusive to the Hotel.”
One-hour on the court with Toni Kukoc includes a professional photographer and branded sports accessories for keepsake. Experience-goers stay in a luxurious Deluxe Lake View One-Bedroom Suite, which boasts spectacular views of the Chicago skyline. Following the game, guests receive a special themed in-room amenity to ensure the festivities continue. And, for those who wish to further indulge, tickets can be secured for an in-season sporting event, or Executive Chef Martin Knaubert can prepare a post-game feast of gourmet concession fare.
Whether seeking a unique bachelor party, unforgettable birthday celebration for a sports enthusiast of any age, unconventional meeting break, or iconic Chicago basketball experience, the new offering is sure to exceed expectations.
The Extraordinary Experience is booked through the Guest Relations Coordinator, who communicates with guests before, during, and after their stay to make sure the Hotel provides a personalized and one-of-a-kind visit. It must be reserved at least ten days in advance, and the maximum capacity is ten guests.
