Most of the well-known hotels in Chicago are found on/near the Magnificent Mile (i.e. North Michigan Ave, just south of Lakeshore Drive) or on/near The Loop (downtown). The JW is on the The Loop, but about a mile (or so) west of the lakeshore and not far from I-94. Theatres and other cultural attractions in the downtown area are also reasonably close to the JW.
The rooms, beds and bathrooms are very comfortable. Typical JW Marriott style and quality. There's nothing particularly special about the lobby, but the lobby bar is fantastic. Just what you'd expect in Chicago.
I really liked the fitness center and the Concierge Lounge. The fitness center has Life Fitness state of the art equipment. It has everything you would expect of a hotel of this quality and room rate. I didn't wait for anything.
The Concierge Lounge was "off the hook". The evening selection of cheeses and other snacks might have been the best I have ever experienced at a hotel concierge lounge. Breakfast in the morning had a superb array of charcuterie, fresh and dried fruit, a few hot items, pastries and breads, and very good coffee.
It's everything you would expect of a high-end, JW and more.
