Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.

Hi and thanks for leaving feedback regarding your recent stay with us. Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay overall, but surely disappointed to hear that your stay was anything less than perfect.

Rest assured though, we are constantly making updates to the property to give our guests the experience they've come to anticipate from the W brand. I hope that on your next stay in the downtown Chicago area you allow us to make a more memorable impression.
