Visitors to Sixteen—the Michelin-rated restaurant on the 16th floor of Chicago’s Trump International Hotel—will get a festive ride up. For the holiday season, the hotel’s elevator has been transformed into the Gingerbread Express. Guarded by a 4-foot-high candy cane, the sweet-smelling activation is covered with real gingerbread, candy canes, and chocolate. Inside, an embedded TV showcases footage of a roaring fire; overhead, miniature trains pass through an active track.
