Imagine feeling lonely in a crowded room. That is exactly how you feel at this WHotel. First the decor is very dark. The historic Foshay building is claustraphobic. Checkin experience was nothing special. Up at my corner room, I could hear the constant dinging of the elevator.
So down I went to the Concierge, who were very nice. They assigned me to a wonderful corner room on a different floor and also gave me drink credit at the bar: Wonderful concierge service.
The corner room was wonderful. Lots of mirrors, Great Views. But the modern shower is the worst. The shower looks wonderful, but has no water pressure. The shower best describes this Whotel: All about glamour and looks, but no function.
27th floor Prohibition restaurant is nice, but space is not something you will enjoy. In the evenings it is elbow room only. Also, Parts of the restaurant were blocked, for private parties. At night time the flood of dressed up club goers starts. I have grown out of the club/bar scene years ago. So it is plain awkward to experience the club/bar scene at an upscale hotel. Very hard to avoid the club/bar since the front hotel entrance, is also the entrance to the club/bar.
The W is definitely not a family hotel. No food is free here. And it is paid parking only. The worst is the Checkout experience. At noon, there were at least 10 people in the checkout line. And W does not offer a Fast checkout, Zip out process. This Whotel leaves at lot to be desired.
