W Chicago Lakeshore

Pretentious, uninterested service...a general attitude from staff, tacky clientele...is not at all what i was expecting from a W...felt like grand central station mixed with a days inn.

Nice experience!

Really great location, right by Navy Pier and walking distance to Magnificant Mile. Room service was really good and the staff was really friendly and helpful. The room had a great view of the lake and of Navy Pier. We could watch the fireworks from bed!

Excellent location on Navy Pier

Hotel overlooks the Navy Pier and is an easy 5 minute walk to take in the site. As with most W Hotels, be prepared for a chic, young crowd. We stayed because of the location, which didn't disappoint. We knew we would have to pay for parking since we had a rental car but weren't prepared for $48 per night.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There are a few restaraunts about two blocks from the hotel, including italian, japanese, steak and seafood and a breakfast cafe. We found lighter pub fare and a great salad menu at a place called Tim O'Toole's on the same strip. There are also Starbucks and Panera Bread shops within this walk if you are tired of higher prices.

Excellent accommodations!!

The W provided a great location in walking distance from most notable attractions. The facility was beautifully maintained. My 12 year old daughter was most impressed with the lakefront room view and pool area. The staff was friendly and fully accommodated our every need.

Chicago - May 2009

The hotel was great, service was great and the price was right. The view was only of the next building - but at half the price well worth it.

W Chicago - Lakeshore: great, per usual

Staff was great, as they always are at the W Hotels. Great fitness center, awesome location. Looking forward to using the pool but it was filled with lots of kids running crazy - wasn't expecting a little YMCA going on at the W :) Rest of the stay was top-notch.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Take the train from the airport to the Clark/Lake stop, then jump in a short cab to the hotel. Easiest way to get there and avoid traffic.
