We stayed at the Waldorf Astoria in Chicago over the weekend for a friend's wedding. I can not praise the accomodations, staff, and vibe of the WA enough. The rooms were spacious, well appointed, and comftorable. I fell in love with the bed, and was quite tempted to steal it and bring it back to Boston with me, but alas it would not fit in my carry-on! The bathrooms are laid out well, and the shower pressure is great. The Ferragamo toiletries were a very nice touch as well. The gym is top notch for a hotel, and definitely make a point to visit the wet mentholyptus steam room after a good run. The bar on level 3 is reminicent of a 1950's speak easy, with some tasty gin concoctions. (Gin and egg whites, who would have known!) In the morning definitely spring for some crepes with homemade nutella. I do not think we have reason to ever stay at a different hotel when in Chicago. I highly reccomend the WA Chicago.
