Overall wonderful overnight stay
The location was excellent, the bed was very comfortable, the view was great, the room was clean and spacious, the rain shower was enjoyable but there was no coffee maker in the room. If you plan to shop the Gold Coast or anywhere in Chicago the sales tax is 10.2%.

Good location with indoor pool
Overall we enjoyed our stay. Location is great for getting to Navy Pier and Michigan Ave. A quick walk to each. We had a minor issue in the first room, only reason I am mentioning it is because of how well the hotel staff quickly fixed the situation, we were offered a new room immediately. By night 2 my husband and I both had a sore back from the small beds, but we would likely stay again due to the location and nice stay we had this trip. Our kids loved the hotel and kept saying how "fancy" it was. The pool area didn't have a hot tub which would have been nice but finding a nice hotel in Chicago with an indoor pool without spending $400 a night is hard to find. The $35/night extra for lake view was worth it for us to watch the lights of Navy Pier, the waves of Lake Michigan and see bustle of the city traffic below. Overall we were happy with the hotel for the price during spring break and our kids absolutely loved it.

Nice hotel but not for a business traveler
Not for a business traveler more geared toward site seeing tourist , no coffee makers in room, no free internet in room .

Okay, but not great.
Hotel has great location and friendly staff, but hotel in shabby condition, especially for a W Hotel; lots of chipped wood and bed not very comfortable. When we asked for extra blankets, we were given very old and scratchy blankets. I don’t know that I would have used the blankets for picnics, let alone sleeping. When I asked for an additional comforter, they told me the blankets were all they had. Rooms are also very small and cramped. It seemed more like a room you’d find in space-composed Manhattan, not Chicago.
