Modern motorists enjoy luxury accommodations and James Beard Award-winning cuisine on each end of this epic American Experience
One of the biggest travel trends of the past year is the resurgence of the road trip, and now two Four Seasons properties are teaming up to cater to this growing demand with inspiration for a driving itinerary through America’s heartland along its most famous route. Bookending the journey are stays at Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis and Four Seasons Hotel Chicago, with enriching, fun, and quirky things to do and see on the way. The 300-mile (485 kilometre) city-to-city journey between the sister properties travels along historic Route 66, and immerses travellers in the heart and soul of the Midwest.
The most compelling reason to travel by car is the freedom to stop along the way, and there are plenty of Insta-worthy moments to capture on this journey, including: the famed Chain of Rocks Bridge in Madison, Illinois; Abraham Lincoln’s home, presidential library and museum in Springfield, Illinois; and, the landmark Gemini Giant statue in Wilmington, Illinois. Also along the way is the Route 66 Hall of Fame, housing thousands of pieces of memorabilia from the glory days of the “Mother Road” in Pontiac, Illinois.
Before setting out, guests can request a gourmet lunch to go by James Beard Award winning chefs - Gerard Craft of Cinder House Restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis and Chef Jonathon Sawyer of Adorn Restaurant and Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Chicago - perfectly packaged and designed to be enjoyed at a scenic spot along the way.
The concierge teams can assist with tailored recommendations in each city so travellers can soak in the local history and culture before and after their road trip. A special offer is also available at each property and here are the details:
