HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 6 February 2017 via mobile

It will NOT be my last time staying at the W. My trip was to visit family and to experience Restaurant Week. The service from the time I walked into the W until the time I left was stupendous! As a SPG member, I appreciated that they took into account my requests from my profile: high floor, near the elevator....

Very comfortable and well appointed hotel. Great location on the lake very close to Navy Pier. Great Lake views for many rooms. Expensive but probably comparable to other hotels in the city. Every once in awhile I will get a good rate but generally not. Within walking distance of several great breakfast restaurants so I advise not eating in the...

The hotel is a bit dated, but the room is a fair size and if you get a view of the water it's pretty awesome. I didn't interact too much with the staff, but they always seemed attentive and courteous. I was dissatisfied that there was no free wi-fi in the room. I find it kinda ridiculous in this day...

I am fortunate to travel on work, stayed in a load of hotels but I felt compelled to give a name check to Brody the barman. He is the ideal barman, caring and really makes the bar a warm and welcome place. Thanks for making my trip away a memorable one.

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.
