4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Arrived early in the morning, and as expected my room was not ready. I was kindly provided with the key to the gym where I proceeded to have an early morning workout. Thereafter I went downstairs, where I enjoyed complimentary newspapers,coffee and internet. I had upgraded to the "fabulous" room located on the thirty second floor. By mid-morning my room... More

My wife and I stayed for one night on the 16th of April on our way to visit my son in Ohio. We usually stay at the two downtown Westins when in Chicago but my other son said he had gotten engaged at the W and it was wonderful. Anyway, from the moment we arrived until we left, the staff... More

Newly remodeled and decorated. We had a room on the 32nd floor and facing the lake. The view was worth it alone. Not to mention how cool the decor in the rooms and lighting in the hallways. Location was perfect I thought. Could walk just about anywhere. We parked in the garage next to the hotel.

This hotel is beautiful, with great views and a stylish room. The lobby is loud but the staff are friendly and always helpful. Needed a pedicure and the local spa was booked. Ramone recommended polish and pour. It was exactly what we were looking for! I was desperate for a good coffee and he sent to me a local cafe... More

My fiance booked our stay here for our trip to Chicago (my first and defiantly not last). I must say, staff was very friendly and knowledgeable (Ramone, the concierge was especially amazing). Our view of Lake Michigan and Navy Pier was out of this world!! I suggest upgrading to a spectacular room with that view. Worth it!!!! Food and drinks... More

hotel was a little glamorus for what we intended location was good they offer valet parking only - so you can't use garage even if you stay a night - hotel is not meant for kids -- there is no vending machines or much of anything for the younger ones to do other than swim - pool was ok water...

I need to start by sharing a couple of background points for context: - We had spent the week touring colleges, staying at 5 different hotels in 5 different states in 5 days. All those hotels were lower end, so our stop at the W was a "reward" to ourselves before heading home...and it was a a very different environment!... More

Everyone from the hotel offered outstanding friendly service, valet gentlemen and front desk especially. We were allowed early check in and upon leaving, the valets even loaded my car while we walked down the block... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
