‘Desperate Housewives’ Gives Women a Chance to Unwind

Wisteria Lane has nothing on
Orrington Avenue: Hotel Orrington is now offering Chicago-area women the
opportunity to escape for an overnight getaway with the girls. Divorcees, ex-career women, stressed out soccer moms and Martha Stewart
wannabes are all invited to the getaway which allows for plenty of time
for sharing secrets, cocktails and good times. Priced at $2,500 for up to
eight participants, the package includes:

—Four rooms at the newly-opened Hotel Orrington in downtown Evanston—
Martinis and manicures in the swank Indigo bar, located on the first floor
of the hotel—Hot and cold stone massage, to relax and restore after a
long night out with the girls.—Dinner in the newly opened Globe Cafe,
including signature desserts

The fun starts with check in on a Saturday afternoon and culminates with
dinner and a viewing of the show in the Globe Cafe’s media center on
Sunday, before returning home for the start of yet another hectic week.

The prestigious Hotel Orrington has been considered the premier locale for
upscale parties, bar and bat mitzvahs and glamorous weddings since its
opening in 1923. Located in the heart of Evanston, Ill., at 1710 Orrington
Ave., the Hotel Orrington is within walking distance of 186 specialty
shops, 72 restaurants, the Northwestern University campus, and beautiful
Lake Michigan, and is just 30 minutes from O’Hare International Airport.
