    Probably the nicest hotel I've ever stayed at :)

    Don't get the wonder room unless your a small person and alone.

  • Hotel WiFi Test

    Paid WiFi at this hotel seems to be very fast. The expected speed is 35.3 Mbps as of August 30, 2014 (crowd-tested, not certified) Read more

    Rooms are a little small, but the atmosphere makes up for it and more.

    Not ideal for weekends-- it's a tad far away from the fun places in river north. Sometimes there are odd mechanical noises. Lauren the bartender is awesome; get the van gough espresso vodka shot.

    Excellent service & room was great. Will definitely return

    This place is AWESOME. Think Trendy Club + Modern hotel.

    The elevators can tell time.

    Lobby is a bit too dark. Don't walk in with your shades on. :-)

    The Concierge Pierre is the best in the city, ask him anything he will set up like a Rockstar. We had the luxury of having him as our Concierge last yr when we stayed at the WLakeshore. Tip him well.

  • Kay D.

    Free WiFi in the lobby, but not in the bedroom. Annoying. Should be an added "perk" as an SPG member.

    They definitely want to make sure they have what you want when you want it. Included in the snack bar was a box with condoms, lubricant and gum...#beprepared

    In "the loop"--walking distance to Starbucks/24hr Dunkin Donuts & quick sandwich shops

    Say "no" to cozy rooms! They are way too small and way too noisy... and I'm from NYC! Really they shouldn't be using these rooms in their current condition.

    TONS of fun at a charity event last night! Bartender, Tanya in the lounge is great!

    Nicole L. Townsend · September 17, 2013
  • Darshna

    Try the tomato soup that is on the menu - it is wonderfully comforting and served at the right temperature

    Amazing rooms and great location. Enjoyed every moment ;-)

    no free wifi!! Incredible for such a popular hotel. Definitely a factor for next stay.

    Lindsey Nash · July 18, 2013
  • Liza S.

    Bring a Mifi card.

  • Daniel P.

    The bartenders are quite skilled at dealing with the masses of business types. A bit low-key compared to other W's I've stayed at, and most shops and restaurants right nearby close early.

    Daniel Phelps · May 25, 2013
  • Erick B.

    You can order room service from the IPO menu, in addition to In Room Dining.

    One of my favorite hotels. Very trendy lobby & bar downstairs (disco balls!). Friendly staff. Very spacious rooms versus other W's I've stayed at. Good location.

    Nicole · March 14, 2013

    Parking is outrageous. Going a block up and go to self park. Its 28$ a day.

    The truffle fries are amazing!

    Couch in room was stained in 3 places. No coffee in lobby as advertised at 8am. Bed was very comfy though and room was nice. Lobby bar was great.

    Ed Jamison · January 20, 2013
  • Neil C.

    Terrible attitude at the night desk - I had missed a train and walked in. I'm a lifetime Gold SPG member, and they tried to sell me a room (Instead of Giving me it on points)

    Neil Cowley · November 21, 2012

    The in-room massage was amazing. Schedule an appointment and they show up at your room and take care of everything.

    Jessica Carlson · September 2, 2012
  • Andrea G.

    These are the smallest rooms I have ever stayed in! Stuck in a broken elevator, the lobby is too crowded and the staff isn't great.

    It's nice n comfortable but hotel doesn't have hotel parking which sucks which cost $55 a night.

    Kick back on the second level under the rococo gold-leaf vaulted ceilings.

    Where's the free wifi?

    Flat Stanley · May 22, 2012
  • Kaite

    Don't hesitate to ask for late check out...they also have a promo with Acura, usually can schedule a ride (only a drop off, but still) instead of taxis/the L

    The girl at the front desk upgraded us with a view of the courtyard. There is NO courtyard!

    Beautiful hotel, put parking rates are crazy for over six hours $55.00 dollars geesh!!

    Great concierge service here.. Ask for Eden..for restaurant tips and events around town. She knows her stuff!

    Great Concierge!

    Outstanding Concierge team!

  • P. Y. M.

    The staff go out of their way to provide the best service they can. The "Acura Experience" needs to extend their hours. No Bliss Spa so go to the JW Marriott across the street.

    P. Y. M. · March 17, 2012
  • Gabby R.

    Fresh marshmallow chocolate cookies every evening!!

    Gabby Ramaci · February 19, 2012

    Best service you'll ever receive. Do not pass up an opportunity to stay at a W.

    Great service. Even the tea was well served.

    Be sure to set your own alarm, the wake up call came late...

    Bring earplugs, you can hear the L run a few minutes.

    nice lake view

    Christopher Teggatz · January 3, 2012

    This is by far my favorite W. Excellent, friendly staff, larger than usual rooms for a W.

    Ask for laralin when you are planning a surprise or need anything! She really goes above and beyond!

    Pimm's Cup. Tasty.

    Such an amazing hotel experience. The attention to detail is fantastic. Make sure to always check what they are offering near the checkin desk. They free Gatorade for the runners after the marathon.

    Taco day is by far the best.
