We have gone sleeker and sassier than ever before with our recent $38 million dollar redesign. You're invited to see for yourself all new guestrooms, meeting space, public space, and our brand new restaurant, CURRENT. Towering over Lake Michigan, W Chicago Lakeshore radiates what's new/next in the city at the water's edge. Here urban energy collides with a glamorous escape; tall shadows of the looming skyline cascade onto the glittering waters of Lake Michigan, reflecting and revealing layers of the city's architectural ingenuity. Be a part of our journey as we introduce what is new/next in W Design.

Catch glimpses of Chicago's legendary architecture and sparkling design or views of sparkling Lake Michigan from your restyled guestroom. The luxury of the signature W bed is available in one king bed or two double beds. Curl up with a favorite flick on the LCD flatscreen TV while you get cozy in a soft terry robe on the chaise lounge. Stay socially connected during your escape by getting the download from your friends and co-workers via the oversized desk that is outfitted with High-Speed Internet Access and two dual line phones. When relaxation calls, soak in the scene of the skyscrapers and the soothing sensation of the legendary Bliss lemon + sage Sinkside Six.

Soak in unobstructed views and the glittering shores of Lake Michigan on the 7th floor of W Chicago Lakeshore on the WET DECK. With a cocktail in hand you have insider views of all the action on Lake Michigan. From the sands of Oak Street Beach to boaters anchoring and relaxing in the "Play Pen" to the bustle of Navy Pier, this is your spot to gaze at Chicago's most coveted feature. Please note that due to the positioning of the building, the WET deck has limited unobstructed sunlight but unlimited fresh air and views.

Escape to Bliss Spa, conventiently located on the # floor. Bliss offers hotel guests and beauty-seeking Chicagoans a clever menu of super-effective services such as the ever-popular Ginger Rub, Hot Salt Scrub, Betweeny Wax and Triple Oxygen Treatment. Enjoy complimentary access to our fitness center 24 hours per day.

Whether you are looking for private viewing of the Navy Pier fireworks, exclusive tickets to the Museum of Contemporary Art, a specially packed picnic for Grant Park packed by our Executive Chef or a personal shopper to take you down the grand streets of the Magnificent Mile, we are ready to bring whatever you want, whenever you want it to life. With Whatever/Whenever as our service pillar, we are committed to making your experience at the W Chicago Lakeshore exclusively yours.

There is nothing particularly special about this hotel. However, the location is great - right on Michigan and great views. I would happily return. Staff were excellent and facilities good. There are bikes to rent outside and a great cycling route around the lake

Beautiful property right across the street from the lake and Navy pier. Located 4 blocks back from Magnificent Mile. Very upscale & trendy property. Open bar and restaurant right in the lobby. The employees were all very helpful and polite. Hello's from everyone we walked by. Room decorated in black and white with very modern pictures on the walls. Great views of the city from our room and Navy Pier & the lake from the front of the property

I just want to start out by explaining why I gave this hotel 4 stars and not 5. The hotel has apparently been redesigned (sometime in the last 5-10 years... Not sure) but the look that the W lakeshore went for was a sexy, swanky and frankly adult hotel. Now I am not a Puritan or have any ill will towards something for being sexy, however when you stay at the hotel I would most definitely prefer that it was with my significant other and not my buddies. Examples include mirrors all over the room, ... Read more

From check-in to check-out, every member of the W Team worked to make my stay enjoyable. It was clear that they recognized and valued my loyalty to the W Brand. I enjoyed a friendly staff, a Lake view room and complimentary cookie and drink delivered to my room. The little things matter during business travel.

We stayed here for the NRA show at mckormick place - great location - great views of the city and of the navy pier Walking distance to most attractions. Easy access to the lakeshore trail for a run, a walk on the beach or a bike ride. Staff at the front office were great and very accommodating. Lounge service also great: our server John was great! Very professional and courteous. Gym a little small; but in the summer, who needs it when you are by the lakeshore.

I'm very very disappointed in my experience at this hotel. There are NO amenities in the room whatsoever. Odd, weird ugly decor, mainly black themed , I feel like I'm in a bad disco. Curtains have a few holes in them. Parking is ridiculously priced at $60 per day and the hotel refused to provide a discount for hotel patrons. No free WiFi either. No menu in room to order room service. Restaurant is average, concierge is awesome.

Our group had two rooms: a "Fabulous Room" and a "Marvelous Suite", both with lake views. The rooms were spacious and comfortable; both rooms had wonderful views of the lake and Navy Pier. These benefits did not, for us, offset the inconveniences associated with this hotel. The first thing to consider is that the atmosphere in the hotel lobby/bar/restaurant from about 6:00 pm on is like that of staying in a nightclub--it is after all a W hotel. The surfaces are hard and sound really carries.... Read more

My husband and I spend a beautiful weekend in Chicago. We reserved the room by priceline in good price ( half of regular). The room was very clean, modern and comfortable. We hadn't the view for a lake ( but you can pay $50 for it­??? and change a room). Be prepare that you haven't a fridge in the room. Bathroom is nice, very clean. Service was helpful and friendly.

Clean and excellent housekeeping service. Very responsive. Very respectful. They made us feel important and special. The security ... Read more

Stayed for 4 nights with my family (2 kids). Check-in was slow, about a 20 minute line-up. We were offered an upgrade to a King with a rollaway instead of 2 doubles and "a much nicer room" because of our gold SPG status. The room was very clean and modern, but lacked USB plugs. After an hour when the promised rollaway hadn't arrived, we called the front desk. It'd be right up, they promised. It was way past our kids bedtimes. After waiting another hour (and calling several more times), I f... Read more
