I moved on from the JW in Wash DC this week to the JW in Chicago. LIttle factoid - the bartender told me this was a former bank, and changed over to a hotel in 2010. So if you are looking for the structural beauty, they had to work with what they had, but did a nice job of creating luxury and that "big" feel of all JWs. I liked the room decor of this JW. The staff here again was nothing but smiles and pleasantness. And, good lucking from the bellman, to the bartender, to the server. Girls, think of this place for ladies weekend.
Since it was spring break, also a lot of families here too, and they accomodated them nicely and quietly. The fitness treadmills over look a nice looking pool. Mom can be on treadmill while kids in pool. The bartender made a great gin citrus herb fused drink, which I highly recommend. The concierge had a ready list and a fabulous restaurant recommendation (Gauge). Caroline at the desk was very helpful with my reservation which was a bit mixed up. The room lighting makes sense, the switches are easy to find and turn on the lights that seem logical. Sounds like a small detail but when you travel alot, you just want to press the easy button, and not try to figure everything out at every hotel. Overall, I was choose this hotel again. And if you have read my other reviews, yes it passes the door smudge test!
