Booked two rooms for two nights for a group of 5. The staff happily found us adjoining rooms that made our whole trip much more enjoyable - conversation, food and drink could flow seamlessly - two bathrooms!!! They also recommended local restaurants and worked to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. We wanted coffee; a machine was immediately delivered to... More

I had a great time at the W Chicago Lakeshore Hotel. I only was there the night of February 28th so I will definitely have to go back to experience more. The bed was very comfortable, and I liked the city view from the 'Wonderful' room on the 28th floor. The bath products are the same brand used in the... More

I had a very enjoyable stay. I arrived with my 19 month old daughter and she needed milk ASAP. Moments after we checked in, there was a knock at the door with warm milk. This really haulted a melt down of a very bad kind. Everyone we encountered was very enjoyable to talk to, helpful with questions and directions. The... More

Excellent service by the front office team alzbeta, Michael and david and the W insider Ali set us up for a VIP nightlife experience. The bliss spa is must use to re-charge. Hang at the bar and Casey will take great care of you. The renovation is well done and request a room with a lake view.

We loved our experience in the W Lakeshore. The service, amenities and "cool" factor all exceeded our expectations. The view of the lake from my guest room took my breath away every time I saw it even though I was there for four days. Thank you for a job well done!

Stayed for 3 days at the newly renovated W Lakeshore. It was awesome! Love the sleek lobby seating and spray paint bottle display at the reception desk. The whole staff was accommodating, professional and quick to serve. My room was really clean!

One of the original W hotels which completed a facelift. New design in the lobby, bar, and guest rooms. Beautifully appointed, modern, contemporary while maintaining a warm balance. They have a super bell staff. How do they stay so friendly while standing in below zero temps? Amazing. From the warm and professional front desk staff, great bartenders, spotless guest rooms...

Despite the renovations our stay at the W hotel was great. The staff were friendly and professional, great restaurant recos from the concierge, and the rooms were awesome, with great views of Lake Michigan. Only complaint is that the staff at the lobby bar were very slow to take our order, despite us telling them we were in a hurry.... More
