We had our two Grandsons 11&4 with us for a overnight visit in the city. The stay was everything we enjoy in a hotel plus more. The staff was outstanding and accommodating. At checkin Alex was very helpful and acknowledged our Grandsons...knew they were tired and promptly gave us our room keys and had us checked in in 5 minutes... More

The W Chicago on Lakeshore was just what I expected from the W chain - clean, modern decor, great location in the city center, friendly and professional staff. The rooms are not huge but big enough for a few days stay. The views of the lake and the Navy Pier are beautiful, so ask for a room on the lake... More

We just stayed here for pleasure expecting a very luxurious room. It was clean, but way too modern for our tastes and not much luxury. I have stayed in other high end hotels that were more comfortable, friendlier and half the price. This hotel was too modern for my tastes and VERY loud. I did love the view and the... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the W Lakeshore. It is one only a few Chicago hotels that sites in close proximity to lake Michigan, right across the street from the beach. I had a great lake view room...beautiful views! The rooms have been recently redone. Nice glass showers with rainforest showerhead. The room also featured modern lighting and an... More

the facility is fantastic with nice lobby/bar area. relaxed seating outside with lake views including large rocking chairs. parking was $64 per night so not cheap. the rooms are ultra modern and very clean and quiet but small. requested a refrigerator and staff brought one right away so had the feeling they do that quite often.

The room was comfortable and the bed was nice... The staff was terribly rude.. We had a hard time checking in, we requested a 1:00 check in, and also wanted to stay on the same floor as another couple... Both didn't happen. We were told they would call us when our room was ready, we came back at 3, with... More

We spent a long weekend at the W Lakeshore with our toddler and infant in tow. We had a fantastic view of the lake. The room was clean and spacious. Staff super friendly. Totally recommend it for a worry-free stay near Millennium park and Chicago downtown.

If you are one of the "young and beautiful" people, the staff won't look down on you but if your not one of the "in" people you might as well drop dead trying to get some one to help you. We travel in the states three to six months a year so we know hotels. This is the most we... More

Room was very nice, very modern decorations and clean although it irritated me to pay 15.99 for wifi. Check in took ages, which wouldnt have been too bad but we had just driven 6 hours to get there and they had a DJ in the bar/lounge which made it nearly impossible to hear what the girl on the desk was...

I travel extensively, but really stumbled upon a gem in my own home town when my wife and I decided to book a weekend "get-away" at The "W". From the moment we walked in, all of our needs an expectations were exceeded. The staff was extremely accommodating and the room was absolutely top notch. But the view is what really... 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.
