Not a real W Hotel
First off the service at this W is astonishing bad they're extremely rude even asking simple questions and they are not here to see that you have a good stay. secondly once getting in my room after an altercation with the service downstairs got to the room to find that the dresser in the room was broken cracked and almost falling apart the door to the bathroom was hung up and would not open not what you expect at a W Hotel.

Comfy room, loved the location
I'm going to organize this review into my pros and cons. Pros: the location was awesome, it only takes a few minutes to walk to Navy Pier, the Mag Mile, and plenty of spots to eat; the valet service was nice and prompt; the bed was super comfy; the AC was perfect; the shower was lovely; I loved the couch in our room; you have to request a mini-fridge, but it was brought to us quickly. Cons: it took a few phone calls and a while to set up the Wi-Fi, which is silly in 2018 especially when you're at a nicer hotel!; the hotel bar was super expensive ($30 for our two simple drinks - a G&T and a R&C); our "city-view" room on floor 16 only looked out to the side of another building, in the future I would probably spend the $ to upgrade to a beach-view. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back. The great location and comfy room was well worth the reasonable price.

What a great stay!! Upgrade to the lake side view!
Such a great stay! Also experienced great customer service from Taecely. She went out of her way to welcome us to our room with some treats and a card! It was great!! Upgraded our room view and it was worth the small charge. Kids loved the view. Safe to walk to the Navy Pier, Molly’s cupcakes and even to other city locations. Would stay here again.
