The appeal of the Waldorf Astoria Chicago Hotel centers on its drive to reinvent luxury and remove the monotony that one has come to expect from supposed luxury hotels. This Gold Coast hotel, on the doorstep of the exclusive shopping district, has certainly achieved its goal.
Rooms

The Waldorf Astoria Chicago Hotel has all the lavish amenities and services a guest expects from a hotel of this standard, as well as a number of additional extras. Rooms include fireplaces, multiple closets and private bars. Guests may never want to leave the white Carrera marble bathrooms with separate showers, soaking tubs and dual vanities. The technology in every room at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago Hotel is just as impressive, with touch screen telephones and free international calls, high definition LCD TVs and an integrated Bowers & Wilkins speaker system

Amazing, elegant.

Although it appears to be a big hotel you get the attention of a small luxury hotel. I can't wait to go back next year.

Extraordinary Date

Business meeting in Chicago and decided to take my wife with me. Made it a date by booking here and wow they did not disappoint. It is the best of the best and my wife (27yrs) realized how important she was. Who said married life is boring. Cheers

Absolutely Amazing

From the minute we arrived to the minute we checked in to the minute the we checked out we felt like royalty staying at The Waldorf Astoria in Chicago. This is typically not the kind of money that I would spend in a hotel, but it was a special occasion. Now I know why this hotel group has the reputation that it does. Simply unforgettable!

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

They have a hotel car that may be booked as "first come first serve" that will take you around Chicago if you ask.

Great stay

After a days sight seeing it is so nice to return to a lovely room. The Waldorf Astoria offers that special feeling. The staff were warm and friendly, always wanting to help in anyway they can. Would highly recommend this hotel.

There are plenty of dining choices within a short walk of the Waldorf, take the time to stroll to Old Town.

$65 for one night of parking is idiotic

Very nice hotel but they gouge you on extra fees. Well over $150 per night just in parking and taxes.
