My adult son and I took a weekend trip to Chicago to see a couple shows and museums. I am cheap and prefer to stay out in the suburbs and drive in, but I agreed to my son's request that we stay downtown. I had never stayed at a W hotel before, so I found the atmosphere somewhat unusual, but the location was prime (walking distance from everything we wanted to see), the employees were helpful, and the room was starkly modern, but luxurious. My son had emailed with questions ahead of time, and had always gotten prompt and thorough responses from Laurelin. I still think it is a crime to pay over $250/night for a hotel room (and this was at a discount), but it definitely was nicer than some other hotels in downtown Chicago that cost almost as much. It was also only a short walk to rail and El stations, so we were able to easily take the train to and from the airport (a bargain at $2.25!) I was also able to fulfill my cheap side by buying breakfasts and snacks at the nearby Dunkin Donuts and 7-11.
