This was my first time at a W Hotel and my first time in Chicago. I was here for a conference, but my conference was at the Hyatt Regency near Michigan Avenue. It was easy to return to the hotel by train or bus (#151 Sheridan). The hotel is located in the financial & business district, not many residential buildings around and is very deserted at night, but the neighbourhood is very clean and safe. The hotel is nice with lots of charm, not ''cookie-cutter'' at all, which is great! I'm young, but the disco balls in the lobby, the dance music in the elevators with the kaleidoscope patterns were a bit over the top IMHO. As a SPG Gold, I was upgraded to a larger room on a high floor, I was quite happy with my room; clean, modern and comfortable. The W bed is amazing! You do hear the train down below, even on a high floor, but that did not bother me much, this is Chicago and I was expecting it. I did not eat at the hotel, so I can't comment on that aspect. The W Acura Experience was practical. The hotel staff was good & helpful, however I will second the observation of another reviewer, the doormen were oblivious. I would return here and would recommend, but be aware that vibe of the hotel might not be for everyone, some guestrooms can be small and it can be noisy because of the L train. Enjoy!
