W Lakeshore is a contemporary hotel within walking distance to Navy Pier and Michigan Avenue shopping. Hotel faces Lake Michigan with views of Navy Pier (would be a great view for summer fireworks!) Hotel was clean and comfortable. Our room was on the 30th floor, very quiet, had great modern decor, but like many downtown rooms, it was on the...

I stayed here with my mom during the beginning of January, and we had a great time. It was extremely cold while we were there, so we mainly took cabs and Uber's, but the bus stop we took sometimes was fairly close. The hotel overall is a very hip and cool place. The lighting was pretty dark in the hallways...

This was a great getaway spot for my birthday! Good food and drinks, great location to dine out as well. Great location for shopping. Navy Pier is extremely close. The rooms were hip and trendy, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We'll be back!

I've been staying at the W for several years and love it! This year's trip was especially great thanks to Barbara at the front desk. We had a nice chat about the fact that I stay here each year for my birthday and visit the Bliss Spa (also great- esthetician Fred is awesome) as a lovely gift from my husband....

When I check in here I feel like I have arrive at 'The Capitol' as depicted in the Hunger Games movies. The hotel itself is modern, cool, trendy, clean but like The Capitol it's all very plastic, gaudy and soul-less and devoid of character and more importantly, style. I prefer tasteful and subtle but this place is a giant fashion...

As the title says.... W Hotels and Starwood never disappoint. A luxurious stay, beautiful room, spacious and clean. The bar scene was awesome not to mention the night we were there, we were admitted to a free fashion show event while we had cocktails and dinner in the lounge. My coworkers and I all agreed, when we return to Chicago...

We stayed here twice. Great views of the lake, modern decor. Location is nice, although obviously rather far west, so kind of a windy area and can be a long walk to where all the action is, usually requiring a cab ride. So based on rooms and location alone, combined with the price point, this could be a solid 4....

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.
