Reviewed 6 February 2017 via mobile

It will NOT be my last time staying at the W. My trip was to visit family and to experience Restaurant Week. The service from the time I walked into the W until the time I left was stupendous! As a SPG member, I appreciated that they took into account my requests from my profile: high floor, near the elevator....

I'm a fan of W's, mainly because I'm a fan of Bliss Spas, and this one did not disappoint. Excellent massage and facial with fabulously skilled and attentive staff (and my treatments even came with a surprise free $75 in products!). Actual hotel room was good-sized and great tasteful decor (not the "trying too hard" vibe at some Ws). I...

If you're going to stay here be sure to get a lake view. The view is the only thing that allowed me to look beyond the very bizarre decor. Seriously, there are black lights in the hall. The room was clean - Just don't look at the baseboards or any surface too closely. I'd recommend our room get a good...

We took a staycation to Chicago over spring break. I was initially worried after reading reviews that this wasn't a kid-friendly hotel, but I didn't find that to be true. The pool, workout room and lobby were great. Beds were comfortable and our view of Navy Pier was top notch. Bliss spa products and a rain head shower head were...

What an amazing team. Came here from NY on a business trip and their professional yet warming demeanor made this place "red" hot and 100x better than a local and very popular piano bar up the street which shall remain nameless. ;)

We're here for 3 nights on a Porter Escapes deal. Nice place - clean, quiet, well-stocked rooms. Lots of metal & glass - shiny! Eurotechno music thumping away in elevators. Dark neon hallways. Austere, open lobby & restaurant. Right along Lakeshore; just north of Navy Pier. Short walk to Magnificent Mile. Near city bus routes. I'd return!

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
