I stayed for a weekend at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago. I recently stayed at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando, which I was disappointed with service and décor, however I decided to stay in the hotel in Chicago as it has been ranked as top in the country.
The lobby is modern and the décor is beautiful, the fireplace is very welcoming and makes you feel like at home. I had a luxury suite, which is spectacular. I was able to check in earlier, which was perfect. The room was very spacious and separated in a living room area with fireplace, love this feature as it is feels like being at home. The bedroom was nice and very comfortable. The bathroom was great, very relaxing.
The only "negative" was that I was in the 7th floor and the views were to the parking garage. Chicago has amazing views and really hope for a room with city views, especially having a suite, so it was disappointing, but the room compensated for this.
We visited the spa and pool. The staff in the spa were extremely nice and the Waldorf Astoria has one of the best spas. We didn't have any treatment, however we enjoyed the pool, gym, sauna and Jacuzzi. Amazing experience.
The location was perfect and close to great shopping. I have stayed in other hotels in Chicago and the Waldorf Astoria is the best.
