The Chicago Waldorf was a distressed property when it was purchased. That didn't make it bad, It just was a smart move to pick up a super-lux property that was finished during the Great Recession. One gets a sense of the property by just entering the driveway. The staff calmly wait your needs with a big "how are you today" look on their face. Once inside the guest will see a building that is new and appointed beautifully. The rooms were as expected with wonderful beds and pillows. I did not eat there because there are too many fine restaurants and cages in just 2 blocks. I will go back.
