My review of W Chicago City Center

The W was a great hotel. Awesome atmosphere if you like pretty modern decor. The bed was very comfertable I'll slept very well. Usually I dont in hotels. If you are looking for a spot for a great location this is a great one. We were down for my birthday and the cab rides were not far from many of the main clubs. It is great for shopping as well. Overall it was a pleasent stay, the only negative I would have to say is that the rooms are quite small. But if you are there for only one or two nights it's bareable!!

Fabulous!

The W Chicago is an incrediable hotel. You only need to think of something you want and they will have it for you before you finish asking. The rooms are luxurious. The hotel is a two block walk from the train and if you prefer a taxi they'll have one for you in a minute. Great staff - very friendly and professional. The conceirge service is there for your every need with wonderful suggestions for restraunts.
