We came to W for an event at Navy Pier that our Grand daughter was involved in. I read prior reviews and was concerned about some of the negative things I had seen but our experience was very good.

One night work trip to Chicago. First time at the W Lakeshore location and have to say it was great! The staff, especially Jeremy, were super accommodating and went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of from the moment I arrived. The room was great, lobby bar was fun and food on point.

Only in town for one night to meet friends, the room was very nice and staff was professional and courteous. We weren't able to utilize all of the amenities they offer. You are within minutes of several activities which is a plus. The only down side was the parking experience. I have had better experiences at Starwood properties.

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.
