Spa Profile: DAYSPA’s 25: Day Spas to Watch in 2014

Allyu Spa, Chicago

What’s makes a day spa a “standout”? Hospitality experts and spa consultants have their checklists but, in the end, it’s what the public has to say that really matters. And this goes double for neighborhood day spas, the businesses that can’t count on a steady stream of tourists but rather, must survive on their ability to become staples in their communities, winning over locals time and again and retaining their invaluable loyalty. DAYSPA editors scoured the country to come up with this list of 25 day spas that are doing just that. New or well established, expansive or petite, in urban metropolises or small rural towns, these spas consistently draw accolades.
