My husband and I stayed at the W Lakeshore in the beginning of October. We're frequent Marriott travelers and this wasn't our first trip to Chicago. Very convenient to downtown attractions, we walked everywhere. Great services -the concierge Lois gave wonderful and thoughtful recommendations for restaurants, bars and what to do. Our room had an amazing view of Lake Michigan and the sunrise was gorgeous each morning! Highly recommend.

NO ON SITE PARKING!!! i wish i knew this before booking, i arrived at the hotel after a long night of partying to be told i have to find a parking lot locally and walk back. I was disappointed and annoyed. The hotel itself was great, very clean and as an elite embassador they upgraded me to a lake city view. The front desk staff was professional and courteous.

Like most W's very cool ambience but this one also happens to have the most awesome location to take account of everything Chicago has to offer. Short walk to the Mag Mile ... slightly longer but comfortable walk to Soldier Field and Lincoln Park depending on what interests you. Seriously under rated restaurant in the lobby and great bar scene.

Nice, clean hotel. Very professional, caring and polite staff. Rooms are on the small side but sufficient for most guests. Breakfast in hotel restaurant was very good. Our main issue was a very loud air conditioning unit in our room. Our solution was to run to lowest temperature possible, we then shut off the Aircon. The hotel was sold out, so I doubt we could change rooms.

I was there this past weekend and received top notch customer service from Frank and his staff Tera. Whatever we asked for it was delivered with a friendly smile. We got a great view of the lake from our room as well. We will definitely stay here again and recommending this hotel to all our families and friends.
