We live an hour and a half away, so we visit Chicago multiple times a year. I've stayed in more than a dozen nice hotels here, and the Waldorf Astoria is my favorite. From the moment you pull into the courtyard to valet your car (so much easier this way than on a busy road), bags are taken care of for you, check-in is smooth and quick with the occasional upgrade as available, and nobody accepts tips. I've tried to tip several employees and they really won't accept anything. The restaurant is... Read more

We stayed here in the summer of 2015 and had an incredible stay. Every detail was important to the hotel staff and they went to great lengths to ensure the stay was excellent. The car service was very convenient and the no topping policy makes it easy to not worry about having appropriate tips available at all times. I would definitely recommend a stay here, we'll be back!

Terrible, they charge US 800+ per room and they give you the worst view in the building. I made my reservation almost 3 months in advance and they make you feel like you are in a two star hotel. I wouldn't recommend this hotel or the one in NY. Go to four seasons or ritz Carlton.

I was skeptical about the Waldorf Astoria, as part of the Hilton chain; I was expecting to be treated more as a client than a guest. Hilton properties are cookie-cut hotels that all are the same. Fortunately, I was wrong, as Waldorf Astoria Chicago is a hotel full of personality with really kind and useful staff. We had breakfast as part of our rate; otherwise I would have skipped it as it is pricey. The food quality is very good and the service great. The restaurant ambience is very elegant. ... Read more

Everything was really great. The room, the service, the amenities all were great. Parking was a little steep at $70 a night, but I guess that's Chicago. My room wasn't ready when I arrived, but they did offer me an upgrade for $60 a night, which I had to take because I was short on time. Suite was really nice, but didn't love paying for it. I will definitely stay here again, but will probably not park here! The staff will not take tips which I found very surprising, but I guess nice.

The Waldorf Astoria was perfect from its quiet courtyard to its champagne-filled happy hour. We were able to have Dieter make dinner reservations for us the night before we arrived. As we were attending the Cubs game that afternoon, we arrived early and were able to check-in to our room. And what a room it was from the fireplace to the luxurious bedding to the mini-freezer. The hotel's location just off Rush was in close proximity to many restaurants This hotel was well worth the expense.

The room was for some reason very warm, I am very grateful they had a fan to put in the room. The only big issue I had was a charge on my card when I got home for something from the minibar. I called and they promptly took care of the issue. Love the area the hotel is in.

My husband and I visited for New Years December 2015 - January 2016. We actually needed up extending our four day stay to six days. We had a beautiful suite with an amazing terrace. The rooms were exceptional. Very clean, large, and amazing views. This hotel is one of few that have balconies in Chicago. The staff exceeded our expectations. Quiet and elegant hotel. Will never stay anywhere else when visiting!!

The Waldorf Astoria in Chicago was a sensational hotel. We were able to get a gorgeous suite through their summer sale. The furniture was elegant and the location perfect. It was close enough to all the spots but located on a quiet street. It's a smaller hotel which made it that more special. The only drawback was the $70 overnight parking but we found a lot around the corner for only $20. We would stay there again if we came back to Chicago.

A large bathroom. Separate tub, shower, and toilet. The spa was nice. An outdoor sitting area with a relaxed atmosphere. Swimming pool and elevator were the bad parts of the stay. Elevators were slow and kept requiring maintenance. Swimming pool needs proper stairs. It is a lap pool that requires you to climb down the wall with steps embedded in the wall. It was very dangerous. The food was good. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay again. The location is great. Just... Read more

I stayed there on the 20th. Staff was great, the room was awesome. Great location to see the city and walk Michigan Ave. the lights are a bit confusing but not a big problem. No one at the front desk could explain them over the phone. I have stayed there twice. Great both times.

All I can say is wow. This is probably the best hotel that I have ever stayed at. The staff was so friendly and professional. The rooms were out of this world. I don't ever think I have seen a bathroom that nice. The Spa was amazing. The only thing that I didn't like was the $200 a day in authorizations per room. It tied up $1,200 on my card that wasn't going to be spent. We will be back.

Great gold coast neighborhood within a short walk of Rush, Michigan Ave., State Street. Lots of nearby high end shopping and restaurants. The hotel part of the building goes up to the 26th floor with high end condos above the hotel. We stayed in one of the luxury suites, which was very nice. The living room is well away from the bedroom in case one of your wants to sleep late. There is a nice balcony but its unfurnished. The bed was just adequate - I didn't find it to be nearly as comforta... Read more

Stayed again with the family at this exceptional hotel. The service remains top-notch, with immediate greetings and service in all areas. We had two problems with our room - no ice in the freezer and a slow running drain in the shower. We reported both issues and were offered a $50 deduction on our bill for the inconvenience, even though we weren't inconvenienced. As a matter of fact, when we realized there was no ice, we called room service and it was delivered within minutes.

Upon arrival, the front desk was great. Very welcoming and helpful. Bellman was very efficient. Room was beautiful with an incredible view. Great workout room, doormen. We had to ask three times to get a crib, and had to ask both nights for sheets for the pullout. Perhaps that makes sense the first night, but housekeeping was on notice for the second night. Also, the furnishings were in need of upgrades. Mattress on the king bed was slanted and made it feel like I was sliding out of bed. ... Read more

The hotel's location is excellent, a few minutes walk from the Magnificient Mile and the Lake. Our room was well-appointed and pleasantly furnished, however the bathroom mirror had a crack. The service was disappointedly slow both for room service and other requests. The elevator doors looked like they needed a good cleaning. Overall, we would have expected a little more attention to detail and better service. For the same price range there are several other better hotel options in the area.

I was excited to stay at the Waldorf to surprise my girlfriend for a spontaneous weekend that would end with a proposal. Everything that I planned went off without a hitch except for the the parts that included the Waldorf. Very disappointing for the reputation and amount of money you spend for their 'service'! The fireplace in our fireplace suite didn't even work!

Beautiful luxury hotel in great location. Room was perfectly appointed with comfortable bed and linens. Bathroom was extremely large. We stayed in a suite with a balcony which afforded great views. Most importantly, service was outstanding from doorman, to bellman, to front desk staff. I believe the Waldorf brand has picked up the ball that the Ritz has dropped.

I travel often with two adult women, usually staying in two hotel rooms. We decided to try to stay in one room because most of the time we wind up later in one room, gabbing and drinking wine.

We had a great time in Chicago (go Cubs!), but the Waldorf Astoria was not memorable. It was a convenient base for four days, but lacked warmth. On the flip side, the suite was large and immaculate. We had read many excellent reviews, but our experience did not reflect this. Maybe an off week?

It is not "cheap" to stay here but it is a perfect place to really spoil yourself and should be taken advantage of when the time is right. The service and hospitality is unmatched, the food is wonderful, great variety in places to eat and drink and the spa set up is one of the best in the City. When you can really treat yourself and not look at the prices of the food and services, stay here and just enjoy the high life!

We had high expectations for this hotel as our second experience at a Waldorf. The bar was set very high based on our recent stay at the Waldorf Amsterdam where the overall experience and especially the level of service was extraordinary. The service at the Chicago Waldorf was definitely a couple of grades lower than what we experienced at the Waldorf Amsterdam. It was less welcoming, less visible, and almost impersonal compared to our previous Waldorf experience. The property itself was beautif... Read more

The property is bright, magnificent, immaculately kept, and the embodiment of the luxury hotel experience. I prefer it to Ritz-Carlton's more stuffy upscale look and feel. Strangely, there was no in-room coffee maker. - When I arrived at 2:30 p.m., I was told the room I reserved was not ready and quickly up sold a more expensive suite. - I arrived on Sunday dressed casually in jeans and a Polo shirt...big mistake: Doormen would not open doors and staff would not greet me.

We previously stayed at this hotel when it was The Elysian. Now that it is a Waldorf Astoria, it continues to be the epitome of luxury. The quality of service has diminished a little, but it is barely perceptible. Previously, the staff anticipated your every need. Now they merely respond to them. Notwithstanding, this hotel will not disappoint. And the restaurant food is exquisite.

Last year,we stayed at the Waldorf and had a less than 5 star experience. I'm happy to state that this past Labor Day weekends stay was back to the gracious, five star treatment and amenities, we'd come to expect from this beautiful property. From early arrival and access to our suite, to the the 'best foot forward' attitude of the staff, it was truly a relaxing and most welcome stay.
