If you feel you would have to go to the middle of nowhere for a spa retreat, think again.

Actually, pack up the car and head to the hustle and bustle of the Windy City, and check-in to the Waldorf Astoria in Chicago.

Located at 11 East Walton Street, the Waldorf Astoria implores website visitors to look into their "award-winning spa."

So it shouldn't come as any surprise to see Elle Decor call the Waldorf Astoria in Chicago one of 30 Luxurious Spas That Are Worth The Drive.

When you look at the list shared by Elle Decor, most of these spa retreats are at some serious palatial estates. The top choice, Canyon Ranch Lenox in Massachusets looks like it's straight out of a movie.

Some of the other places notably in Colorado and Arizona look like spas in the middle of nowhere.

Then consider the Waldorf Astoria is situated in one of the busiest places not only in America but the world.

I guess that's what makes the Waldorf Astoria such a popular joint when it comes to amazing spa days.

How they manage to take someone out of the high-stress environments big cities like Chicago seem to foster and transport their clients somewhere else is nearly a miracle.
