We have visited this property on three occasions-----and absolutely loved it! First of all, the location is ideal. You can easily walk to the Michigan Avenue shops in the daytime, and fully enjoy the plethora of dining and dancing establishments in the evening---all within blocks distance. The rooms, of which we have seen 4 types, are beautifully decorated, often having balconies and fireplaces. The restaurant's food is delicious, but the service was slow and the cost pricey. I agree with a previous review that it is better to visit one of the many wonderful restaurants in the area versus eating here. We have enjoyed the bar, which is quaint and serves a good drink. Most of all, the staff is outstanding and makes you feel like you are a welcome part of their family.
With is service and location, the Waldorf is definitely a place to celebrate a special occasion. Treat yourself! The hotel is a tucked away gem!
