After reading several not so great reviews and being extremely nervous about our stay, I had to write my own review in order to somewhat defend the W. I definitely wasn't over impressed with the W, but it wasn't the worst hotel experience either. We booked through Priceline so we got a really good deal compared with what the rooms normally book for. This is the 4th hotel we have stayed at in our trips to downtown Chicago. We checked in around 8:30 on Friday night and the staff was super. It was a little loud in the lobby, but I had no problem talking with the woman at the front desk. We inadvertently booked a double room and when we asked if there was a King available, the front desk was happy to accomodate us. There were two people on duty in the Consierge and they were super helpful when we asked for a nearby place to eat. Saturday we needed to get to Wrigley Field and the door man was wonderful getting us a taxi very quickly. I didn't think the halls were dark or musty as some of the previous reviews stated. Also, our AC unit ran the entire night and we didn't ever feel that it was loud or obnoxious. We stayed on the side of the hotel without the view of the lake, I'm sure since we got such a cheap room; however, the 7th floor balcony allowed us to take in the lovely view. The Navy Pier was extremely close to this hotel as well as a beach. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
