Nice location!
This is a great hotel with a really good location. Not quite easy to get to but easy to get around once you are there.

A hidden gem in downtown Chicago
Wonderful service, from check-in to check-out! I found the W online while searching for downtown hotels on the lake in Chicago for our anniversary. The W was literally the only one. The front desk allowed me a three hour early check-in at no additional charge. I was very pleased by this. I had flowers delivered to the hotel prior to arrival and they were already in our room prior to our early check-in. The view of the lake from our room was absolutely stunning, worth the small charge for lake view. Located across from the beach and close to navy pier. The location was exceptional. I was given two for one drinks at the bar. We were served cocktails on the “tipsy lift” elevator which was a nice touch on a Friday night. All the staff was very friendly and pleasant. The room was spacious and clean. We ate breakfast outside at the on-site restaurant and the service was fast and friendly with no wait. We were allowed to store our bags upon checking out and explore the city for the day. The valet parking was simple to use and efficient. The W is a hidden gem in downtown Chicago. We will definitely be back. The W surpassed my expectations. Thank you for making our stay pleasant and memorable!

Great, but not Excellent
Beautiful lake view, but the hotel is a bit tired. Fixtures were dented and scratched, etc. I read somewhere that W hotels buy old cheaper hotels (like Days Inn) in good locations and give them cosmetic makeovers. I'm not sure if this is true, but it felt that way. The place was perfectly nice, with a great view, but it lacked that nothing-omitted feeling of most 4.5 star hotels. Also, if you like room service, I'd check the prices before you book. These seemed higher than other 4.5 star hotels.

Great staff but a bit overpriced
It was only a one-night stay, so my experience was limited. I didn't use the gym or pool or spend a lot of time at the hotel. However, the staff were attentive, friendly, and professional. The same applies for the bar in the lobby. The room was fine, though nothing exceptional. I had a city view, which looked directly at other apartment buildings. The view on the lake side looked stunning, which I saw from the elevators, though. The thing I found very odd about the W was that for a hotel chain that made its reputation on being stylish, this particular hotel felt a bit dated. The room was all gray, white, and black with the requisite (kind of cheap) modern furniture. The bathroom had light switches and a toilet that seemed like they were bought on discount at a Home Depot. There also were holes in the wall of my room from, I'm assuming, where the TV or mirror had previously been placed. The bed and bedding was comfortable, though, and the room was exceptionally quiet. All in all, it's a decent hotel that could use a little more care or refurbishing. One other thing to note, I paid over $500 because it was the week of a big conference in Chicago. This is not even close to being a hotel worth that cost. If you can get it around $300-$350 with a lake view, it is a good option.
