Very Good8.0
It’s a nice hotel in a great location, but MEH
It’s a nice hotel in a great location but it’s just not the Renaissance. Rooms are very clean but the bed was not super comfortable and the water pressure on the 12th floor was mediocre at best. Also the restaurant is extremely small and you can private message if you’re not paying attention which doesn’t really lend to a is in use.

The actual room was extremely small compared to other W properties

Not worth the money
Room was quite possibly the smallest I've ever seen. I had to clean the bathroom and there was mold in the shower. At $250/night you think it would be in much better condition.
Toby, us1 night trip
W Chicago - City Center, Chicago
I was very much looking forward to the midweek stay at the W but was exceptionally disappointed by the tiny, cramped and poorly laid out room. Barely room to sit at the desk, couldn’t turn on the shower without getting into it and couldn’t get to the sink for the toilet being in the way. Very disappointing. Not very chic. And, certainly not worth $600+ dollars. Marriott Platinum Elite
