I spent a few days at this hotel last week and I need to recognize that I was really surprised when I order room service and Juan, the person who provided the service was extremely friendly. Great service! Thanks Juan. Keep your attitude and enthusiasm.
It would be great if we could find people like you on a day to day base.

Room Tip: The subway makes some noise so ask for a quit suite.

While I have frequently visited the lobby and bars of various W Hotels and have appreciated the European quirkiness and funky vibe, I've learned that I don't necessarily appreciate that in my room. I stayed at the W In Chicago and while clean, both the room and the bathroom were tiny - the bathroom was so small, that I dare not close the door for fear of being stuck! I heard similar stories from other guests who were staying at the hotel. Would advise that if you are American to ask for a larger room. After all, who wants a European experience in Chicago?

I recently stayed at the W at City center. The hotel was very nice and conveniently located near all of the attractions. If you stay there definitely ask for Maida. She is the desk agent when you first walk in. She was great. She did an amazing job of accommodating me during my stay. It happened to be my birthday weekend and she was so kind to send a small gift to my room. She was very knowledgeable about the area and provided details on how to best get around the city. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone in the future.

My girlfriend and I had a chance to get to Chicago for the July 4th week and we had a blast. The Concierge team of Laurelin and TK were fantastic in helping make our stay that much more enjoyable. When we come back, we aren't staying anywhere else! Thanks!!

I recently took a group to the W hotel in Chicago. I was so pleased with Eden. She helped me with every detail and was even able to secure a difficult table at a local restaurant. It was a huge relief to know that I could count on her.

The W's staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were comfortable and clean. The style and color was calming. The location was prefect for our downtown visit. Thanks to Eden Bernal for making our trip so wonderful.
