My husband and I stayed at the Chicago W for our anniversary recently and had a fantastic time. Not only is the location great, but Matt at the front desk was super friendly, gave us great suggestions of things to do and made sure that it was truly a special experience. We'll be sure to stay here again next time...

This hotel has the best location of any we've stayed in Chicago. You can walk to Navy Pier (or the beach if it's warm) and it's just a few blocks from the Magnificent Mile. The room was clean and had contemporary decor. There were some things I expected that were not present for a hotel of this caliber though. For...

W Lakeshore is a contemporary hotel within walking distance to Navy Pier and Michigan Avenue shopping. Hotel faces Lake Michigan with views of Navy Pier (would be a great view for summer fireworks!) Hotel was clean and comfortable. Our room was on the 30th floor, very quiet, had great modern decor, but like many downtown rooms, it was on the...

I stayed here with my mom during the beginning of January, and we had a great time. It was extremely cold while we were there, so we mainly took cabs and Uber's, but the bus stop we took sometimes was fairly close. The hotel overall is a very hip and cool place. The lighting was pretty dark in the hallways...

When I check in here I feel like I have arrive at 'The Capitol' as depicted in the Hunger Games movies. The hotel itself is modern, cool, trendy, clean but like The Capitol it's all very plastic, gaudy and soul-less and devoid of character and more importantly, style. I prefer tasteful and subtle but this place is a giant fashion...

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
