I have stayed at several hotels in downtown Chicago and this is by far my favorite. From the trendy atmosphere, to the friendly staff, this hotel has everything you want. It is walking distance to everything and never disappoints. The beds are comfortable and the bath products are amazing! I will definitely be back!!

Stayed here for a long weekend with my daughter and granddaughter. The hotel is right across the street from Lake Michigan and Navy Pier. One block down from the hotel is a staircase that takes you under the busy street and to Navy Pier. Check in was very efficient and the attendant was very knowledgeable. Our room was on the... More

The hotel was nice but lacking in service. For the price we paid I would rather be right on Michigan Ave. When we went down for coffee in the AM there was never enough half n half& never enough people to get if when they ran out. Also you had to ask for tea, it wasn't readily there!

I stayed here for 2 nights. Great location and I was able to walk to a lot of areas in downtown Chicago. I had a good experience with this hotel...it was nice, and I had a great view of the pier. I ate breakfast there once, and it was delicious + well priced. Staff were great! I would stay there... More

The lake view rooms overlook the Ohio St Beach & Navy Pier, simply gorgeous! Great walking distance to pretty much everything you'll want to see in Chicago. Super clean, great staff and treated us like VIPs during our 4 night stay. I'll def stay here again.

I bit busier and louder than expected in the lobby, but comfortable room with great bed. This was a wonderful launching point for our stay in Chicago. The staff was top notch: very responsive and professional. Disappointing that they charge for internet

There were bulbs that were out in my room and housekeeping didn't show up during my 2 night stay. The rooms seemed like they were a bit small but I couldn't compare them to other hotels in downtown Chicago because i never stayed in hotels in that area. Otherwise the stay was fine, the staff was friendly and helpful.

I was promised a refrigerator and only received on the final night! I was disappoint about that because we had leftovers needing storage. The room was nice with a good view and you could see fireworks at night but probably won't stay there again.

Thank you for your review of the W Lakeshore. I am sorry you did not enjoy the design of the property as the property was designed by Meyer Davis in 2014 after a $38M renovation but certainly the look and feel of the hotel is not for everyone. Please let me know the next time you are traveling to Chicago... 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.
