- Mary Gostelow, arguably the most-traveled, and most-traveling, lady of the 21st century. She is owner and president of The Gostelow Report, essential monthly market intelligence briefing for the top levels of the hospitality industry. She is also contributing editor to Elite Traveler, The Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine and EnRoute.

Park Hyatt Chicago holds its next Masters of Food and Wine spectacular on Saturday, January 14th, 2012.

The event will be held in the Wine Cellar of NoMI Kitchen at Park Hyatt Chicago, at six o’clock in the evening. Executive Chef Ryan LaRoche will show how to shuck oysters, filet a fish and other professional secrets, after which participants enjoy a memorable dinner.

The gorgeous 198-room Park Hyatt Chicago opened in 2000 on the site of the former Water Tower Hyatt. The seventh floor is home to an outside terrace, a 24-hour gym and a 75-foot indoor pool. It also holds NoMI (short for North Michigan, the avenue it resides on) which has various dining venues, including the aforementioned Wine Cellar.

I last stayed in a Lake Suite, number 1603. A calm ambiance of light and dark woods, marble and cream and beige colors, was balanced by a view of Lake Michigan. I liked the Neroli 36 bathroom toiletries, and the fact that WiFi was complimentary. In addition, having the three-floor American Girl Place on the other side of Chicago Street from the hotel’s main entrance made shopping for young female relatives an easy errand.
