I stayed here for 3 night while on a business trip and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The staff are friendly, the rooms are well sized and there's a wall to wall sofa with views of Lake Michigan and Navy Pier! For the most part the room was quiet, except on my final nights stay where the hotel seemed very full,... More

Stayed in this hotel for 1 night and it was one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in. Everything feels brand new and chic and modern. Location is perfect, looking right on to the lakeshore and the views from the hotel, including navy pier, are beautiful. The rooms itself are very stylish and comfortable. We had a minor issue...

This is a fantastic hotel, very up to W standards and the lobby bar is a great place to hang out and people watch. I recommend getting a room with a lake view, seems like you can see for miles. If only you could have the view plus be in the thick of the city, that would be amazing. Overall... More

This was my second stay at the W Hotel Lakeshore and recent reno's make the property even more desirable. I love the location and i love the can do attitude of the staff. Special shout out to Ramone and Louis the two Concierge's I dealt with - they were fantastic and their recommendations spot on!

After a night of royal lodging, I was ready to check out. About 30 minutes after leaving I noticed I lost my car and house keys. I hurried back and alerted the front desk, security, and valet. They all searched to no avail. As I was preparing to accept my ruined weekend, Trevell showed up with keys in hand. Thank... More

My best man planned my bachelor party here, and it was a great hotel for everyone for the weekend. We called ahead and managed to get rooms all on the same floor, so it would be easier to meet up so we could all go out together. When we checked in, the front desk staff was extremely friendly. In fact,... More

Went with my 2 best friends for the weekend. We had a great time thanks to the 2 fabulous concierges who were locals and knew the city extremely well. The view was incredible and the rooms were really nice. The only thing that kept it from a 5 star ratings were 2 things. No coffee pot in the room and... More

The right rooms in this hotel have an amazing view over Lake Michigan, LSD and Navy Pier! The property seems to be recently renovated and gives a lively and modern impression. It's located on Lake Shore Drive in Streeterville so for nightlife you will need to walk a little or take a short cab drive to River North or Gold... More

A trendy style hotel with views of the lake and the city. It’s within walking distance to Michigan Avenue shops. However, we found the room lighting very dim. On a cloudy weekend in Chicago there was not much light even with the curtains open. The black bedside drum style lamps did not provide enough light even with the glow from... More
