Hotel's Favorite
I guess my wife and I forgot all about the Waldorf once the Pandemic began because of the cancelations from last year. We were actually going to stay somewhere else for a quick one night stay. The hotel that we were going to stay at was still on open, so we decided to go to old faithful. I noticed because of our Diamond Status we were upgraded to their Junior Suite. ( we have previously stayed a few times in there one bedroom suites). It was really just a place to sleep so we could have fun riding the train back home the next day. MY GOODNESS! We forgot about the professionalism and the cleanliness of the hotel. The Waldorf Astoria Chicago keeps their rooms neater and cleaner than any other hotel my wife and I have EVER stayed in. The restaurant still has limited menu items. This is our most favorite Luxury Hotel. We recommend. Thumbs up! Looks live we have to plan another stay there soon. :)

Very comfortable stay at the hotel with everyone going out of their way to complete any requests that we had. One of the best locations to stay as well with all shopping and a supermarket nearby. We will be back for sure

We have been coming to this property frequently for 7 years now except for last year. Stayed a few times in 2019 but haven't been back till recently due to covid. We were so happy that everything is still wonderful as usual. So may familiar and friendly and welcoming on staff. The cafe in the lobby was phenomenal as always. The sauna and pool were great in the spa. And the rooms, especially the soaking tub, were just what we needed. We were so happy that covid didn't diminish anything as far as the upscale and luxurious stay we always have experienced at this property and more importantly that the customer service was always the usual above and beyond accommodating and gracious hosting we have come to know over the past 7 years. Looking g forward to many many more stays.

I wanted to stay at a nice hotel that was located close to Rush street and shopping. Everything was within easy walking distance. Service was low key but very upscale. I could not believe how friendly the staff was. The Waldorf will now be my first choice when I visit Chicago.
