Steps away from vibrant and bustling Navy Pier on the shore of Lake Michigan, the W Chicago Lakeshore Hotel is a trendy base to explore the best of downtown Chicago and the waterfront.

Like all W Hotels, the W Chicago is a leader in modern design and luxuries. Rooms are artfully-outfitted, averaging 350 square feet and offering views of the city or the lake. In-room amenities include a desk, pillow-top mattress and featherbed, mini-fridge, robe, grocery shopping service, and 24-hour room service. Suites are 550 square feet and offer a living room and an extra bathroom.

On-site amenities include Bliss Spa, where guests can treat themselves to the famed brownie buffet while enjoying Lake Michigan views or watch a movie while they get their nails done, and a 24-hour fitness room where guests can enjoy views of the city from an indoor heated pool or splurge in the sunchairs on the neighboring outdoor WET deck.

W Chicago’s restaurant CURRENT, one of the city’s top revered restaurants, features ingredient-driven takes on a fresher, more modern New American and gorgeous views of Lake Michigan and Navy Pier. For a quick drink, the bar is known for innovative cocktails and several wine lists.

A fun feature of this hotel is the Glow in the dark yoga class offered every Wednesday from 6 – 7pm. For a cool unique experience in the heart of Chicago, travelers should stay at the W Chicago.

10.0 Excellent
Pros:Location great staff
8.5 Great
Pros:Staff was friendly and responsive. Room was clean.
Cons:Purple lip picture hanging in the room was horrible!
2.0 Bad
Cons:The staff was unfriendly. There was always a line to get into an elevator from the lobby. The rooms were small and dirty with stains on furniture. You can hear everything through the paper-thin walls. Poor night sleep because our neighbors were up causing noise all night. Do not recommend.
7.4 Good
Pros:We were very happy with the location of the hotel and check in staff, as well as style of the room, loved the pool and outdoor deck overlooking navy pier
Cons:Restaurant staff was rude and inattentive, not many amenities at the hotel that are standard almost everywhere else, room was small and did not have good views (requested in advance lake view on high floor)
8.0 Great
Pros:I liked all the design of the cuilding structure and room.
Cons:I did not like that check in was at 3:00pm but ghey did not let me check in until almost an hour later because my room wasnt ready and there was suppose to be a small fridge there but it was locked up ,So couldnt keep my food fresh.
8.2 Great
Pros:Rooms looked great and was very comfortable. The view was great.
Cons:For a room that costs 250.00 and up being nickel and dimed for things is kind of silly. Pay for wifi??? Really. Parking was also pretty outragous. The restaurant was pretty over priced for the quality as well. I understand payibg fir your suroundings but was a bit much..... We've stayed there quite a few times now. May be time to try another place.
6.5 Okay
Pros:I was charged by both Kayak as well as the hotel. I'm now going on my second week of "working" with a totally incompetent staff on getting reimbursed. I have received phone verification over a week ago that I was going to be reimbursed. 5 Phone calls later I received an email confirmation, yet I have yet to receive any reimbursement. When asked to speak to a manager I was told the manager was aware of the situration and my reimbursement would be received in the form of a credit on my credit card - that was 5 days ago and still no credit.
8.8 Great
Pros:clean rooms. great HD TV
Cons:high price for sauna ($35). drinks expensive.
