The Powder Room Affordable Luxury in Downtown Algonquin

The Powder Room Algonquin is the place for affordable luxury, designed so women can come back more than once. Owners Krysten Boylan and Julie Bailey opened the business as a place where women will enjoy being pampered. Located in a historic pink lady in the heart of downtown Algonquin the bright rooms are painted soft pink with white trim playing off the warmth of the wood floors.

Krysten and Julie told me it took many hours to make over this lovely home. Julie has a long history with the house. She lived in the upstairs apartment for several years.

I treated myself to a facial with Krysten which lasted about an hour. As I relaxed, listening to soft music, I enjoyed two cleanings, exfoliation, steam, massage, mask, toner, serum, moisturizer. I can see why many customers fall asleep during the session. I felt terrific and rejuvenated! The facial is customized to each skin type and only organic and natural products are used. Other services include chemical peels, waxing, makeup services. Call to make an appointment for a complimentary makeover.

Downtown Dogs of Algonquin Hot Dogs, Fries and Soft Serve Cones

I stopped in at Downtown Dogs N More of Algonquin a couple of weeks ago. Turned around and abruptly left. Why? The place was jammed!

So last week I got there early enough to beat the crowd  and now I know why it was so busy. I had their special, 2 dogs fries and a drink for 4 bucks. The dogs were great.

The dogs were great. The home-made fries are excellent and we topped of the meal with chocolate dipped soft-serve cones. I’m looking forward to trying one of Downtown Dogs’ burgers.

Eat in the restaurant or take your order to go.
