I usually stay here for business as it is close to the venue. It is a beautiful hotel with the best views of the Lake! There are seats along the front of the hotel for relaxing and enjoying the view as well as an outdoor dining area. The restaurant is farm to table and the food is terrific. The décor... More

The hotel is nice, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the property is stylish and the amenities are as you would expect for a W on Lakeshore drive. Service at the door and the front desk were good and housekeeping was attentive. There seemed to be a problem at the bar/restaurant, though... Everyone was working VERY HARD and were VERY... More

A weekend getaway with biking, dinners and a Cubs game planned. Location was excellent to hop right on the lakefront trail. Our bikes were stored and available when we wanted them. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

The W Lakeshore is in a great location. It is close to everything; Navy Pier, Michigan Ave, and the train system (which gets you anywhere you want to go in Chicago). Lake-view rooms provide a stunning view, and they are nice rooms, but do not expect to be blown away by the interior. During busy times, there are not enough... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
