Waldorf Astoria Chicago, Chicago
Luxury at its finest!
Wonderful hotel and impeccable service.

Waldorf Astoria Chicago, Chicago
Sadly not worth it
Not worth the money, nor the 'fireplace' and 'balcony' touted by the front desk. No all day restaurant for international travel and city noise will negate enjoying any amenity. Stay elsewhere.
Sarah, us1 night trip
Waldorf Astoria Chicago, Chicago
Exceptional service (and food) at Margeaux for breakfast. We really enjoyed this beautiful property and loved the location!

Waldorf Astoria Chicago, Chicago
Loved my time here
I loved staying at the Waldorf and never wanted to leave. My travel plans actually got shifted around unfortunately but this was the perfect hotel to be at to just enjoy myself. The food was amazing, the spa was amazing, the service was amazing, bathtub was amazing, bed was amazing. Plus I walked 1 block to Michigan Ave for great shopping. I will be back :)

Waldorf Astoria Chicago, Chicago
Great, ‘‘tips “ included property, however this time the locker room and jacuzzi were closed and last time it was the pool. I feel like they should disclose this before booking. Amazing service.
