Axis: One of the Prestige Club hotels in the Chicago area. This is a 21 and up, members only hotel that includes their Aura and Ambiance locations. Membership is around $30/year and you can apply online or in person. You no longer have to live in the area to apply.
Location: AXIS, 5335 S Pulaski Rd, Chicago, IL 60632
Cost: ~$100-$600 depending on the room + night. I believe they offer afternoon rates as well but call to find out.
Our Overall Rating: 5/5
This is a very explicitly sexy adult hotel. Think jacuzzi tubs, circle beds and ceiling mirrors, but also dance poles, Kama Sutra chairs, wedge pillows, and more. The in-room amenities are similar to the Sybaris pool suites that we love – but a more dark and sexy vibe. The decor is mostly black and grey, where at Sybaris it’s mostly white and beige. I could see the audience being younger here compared to Sybaris as it feels a little bit like a club as opposed to a living room or home, but both offer great, steamy getaways. At Axis, they have a few different tiers of suites to choose from, and we got the largest called Lush. We loved the extra touches of all the fun lighting options, and I’m still mad we didn’t get up early enough to also try the lay-down shower?! Definitely on the list for our return.
Cleanliness Rating: 5/5
We were super impressed with the cleanliness! We had the biggest room and I believe the hotel had been renovated relatively recently, but we’re hoping to check out more rooms and their other locations to compare.
Favorite Room: Lush suite was amazing.
