Came for a long weekend with a girlfriend for a girls’ weekend on a recommendation from my friend’s coworker. Check-in was very easy and quick – overall the service was friendly and knowledgeable. Our room was extremely spacious and comfortable for two: we shared a giant king-sized bed with plenty of sitting areas, lighting and counterspace, and mirrors to accommodate...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I've been here several times for the DDW {Digestive Diseases Week} conference in Chicago. Unfortunately NONE of my reviews made it online. I wanted to be sure this one did. The hotel has been through renovations and the last time that I stayed here was during the height of reconstruction. They did the best under the circumstances and compensated me...

I usually stay only at Marriott chain properties but this was booked by my company for a tradeshow in Chicago so I had no choice in the matter. (I did at least get points bc of the Starwood - Marriott merger so that was a plus!) I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived. The lobby and restaurant was beautiful and...

Stayed here for a conference with husband. We have been to W's in Verbier and Barcelona which are stunning hotels. This sadly isn't! It caters for the younger crowd who like to party into the night at the hotel bar lounge. Thumping music goes on very late. The gym is dark and the equipment isn't varied. The outdoor area is...

Stayed at the W on 4th of July weekend. Chose this hotel because of its location to Navy Pier, as we had plans for the 4th on the pier. Check-in was fine, not overly friendly, the lobby was extremely noisy and crowded. Room was fine, we didn't pay the premium price for a lake view room. Elevators extremely slow. Our...

2 week stay for work, at this time - No SPG Status. Location is great. Close to the lake, south of Michigan. Quiet and away from the Michigan hustle, but still pretty convenience with great views of the lake. Had an issue with the room (ants).

Staying in Streeterville

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.
