I had a very enjoyable stay. I arrived with my 19 month old daughter and she needed milk ASAP. Moments after we checked in, there was a knock at the door with warm milk. This really haulted a melt down of a very bad kind. Everyone we encountered was very enjoyable to talk to, helpful with questions and directions. The...

Excellent service by the front office team alzbeta, Michael and david and the W insider Ali set us up for a VIP nightlife experience. The bliss spa is must use to re-charge. Hang at the bar and Casey will take great care of you. The renovation is well done and request a room with a lake view.

We loved our experience in the W Lakeshore. The service, amenities and "cool" factor all exceeded our expectations. The view of the lake from my guest room took my breath away every time I saw it even though I was there for four days. Thank you for a job well done!

Despite the renovations our stay at the W hotel was great. The staff were friendly and professional, great restaurant recos from the concierge, and the rooms were awesome, with great views of Lake Michigan. Only complaint is that the staff at the lobby bar were very slow to take our order, despite us telling them we were in a hurry....

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.
