Rated 4 out of 5 by Kiki789 Nice hotel; great location
The W City Center is a great hotel located in the loop. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Lobby / bar contemporary and dimly lit. Our double bed room was spacious, Bliss products very nice. However, My allergies acted up in the room---- Not sure what caused this? Cleaning supplies? Dust? I'm very sensitive so this was a concern of mine.
Overall nice hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lotusfla too hip for me
the staff were friendly. the mish-mash of the modern, hip décor crammed down onto the art deco bones of the building didn't work for me.
the acura car staff treated the cars like they owned the cars themselves and we less than accommodating.
I didn't like the fact that you gave the concierge a "deposit" (cash only) for them to arrange tickets for events.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dcgirl0 Labor Day Weekend Stay
I recently stayed at this hotel, I had a pleasant stay overall. I got upgraded to a suite, which was AMAZING, and chocolate truffles were delivered to my room as an amenity.
Although, I needed to use the business center to print some tickets to one of the Chicago attractions, and I was shocked when I learned the fee to use internet. Come on, seriously?

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jbayless HVAC IN CHICAGO
The heat was not functioning in the room for the entire trip- we contacted whenever/wherever and they told us engineering did not feel it was appropriate to turn on conventional heat when it was 56 degrees during the day. I dont understand how the W in Chicago does not have individualized HVAC per room...breakfast was also the worst ive had at a W ever.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Deepsnow "Wonderful Room" Way too small
I was surprised at the size of the "Wonderful" room, it was a corner room with barley enough room to get past the king sized bed. The bathroom & vanity was smaller than the one in my camping trailer! Also, the "courtyard view" was of the rooftop of the hotel lobby.
Service and cleanliness were great, however I would have expected more from the room...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mary007 Great location for business
Very updated, eclectic decor (as expected for a Starwood W hotel). Staff was very pleasant and the atmosphere was very upbeat. Close to financial district.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AAJ20 Clean rooms!
Your rooms are very clean, and so are your facilities.
Your towels are first class!! The room design is very cool and ingenious.
Fatima at the Front Desk was excellent! She is a keeper! There is also an excellent Bellman/Porter from Dominican Republic, tall and always with a smile (I wish I asked his name)

Rated 4 out of 5 by malhol Not as nice as I would expect for a W...
I stayed here because it was very close to my Company's Chicago office and I was in town for business. I have stayed in W's before (Times Square and Scottsdale) and this entire hotel did not live up to my W expectations. There was nothing wrong with it, I just expected more from a W.

Rated 4 out of 5 by djaskin A Little Disappointed...
I was a little disappointed on this stay.
The staff was excellent as always.
However, my room was almost directly on top of the EL and therefore was quite noisy all night long. I expect a little better as a Platinum member. Also, the air conditioner made a racket when it was on. So, I had to turn it off in order to try to go to sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sliceofparadise14 dripping faucet
More of an FYI about a dripping bathtub faucet that I let your front desk folks know about just after I arrived in my post check-in. It didn't bother me, but I wanted the team to know, as it's wasteful + should be fixed of course. Was told it would be, but noticed it was still dripping throughout my stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by luckydog49 Tiny Room
Whenever you have a room where your legs have to stick out of the door to the bathroom when using the toilet, that is not a good thing. This room was really small. If I was 5'5 or smaller it would not be an issue, but at 6'2 its an issue. Staff was great otherwise and I know the hotel was pretty full. Otherwise it was a nice hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Joseph29 The rooms are very tiny!
My room at the W reminded me of a non-upgraded stateroom on a cruise ship. The bathroom was so tiny as to be almost unusable. I book hotel rooms for 3 executives and recommend hotels to our customers for events. After staying at this hotel I can no longer recommend this hotel nor will I be booking W hotels world wide for my team.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jjjuly18 This hotel has an excellent staff.
We had a wedding in Chicago and a block of rooms for our guest at this hotel. The service was above excellent. The bell staff answered our needs within 5 minutes The front desk handled our guest with the most respect and we didn't have one error in our room block. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lavelle27 Great vacation away from the suburbs
I needed a night away from the suburbs and this was perfect! I received an pgrade on the room, accommodations with a late check out, and the special offer gave me daily parking and two cocktails. This was a perfect vacation away from the suburbs!

Rated 3 out of 5 by bberber2 Why is it so dark?
I never stayed at this W hotel before and have a simple question- why is it so dark everywhere? The lobby, the registration desk, the elevators and the rooms are dark. Lighting seems to be a rarity. I light bright open spaces and this hotel just doesn't offer it, it seems. Too bad, otherwise it could be a great place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ali123456 Excellent hotel in a great area
The W Chicago city center is centrally located to explore the city and upon arrival we were met with a friendly greeting. Check in was quick and our room had more than enough room for the three nights we were there. The bar and overall atmosphere of the hotel is chilled and relaxed. Another great stay at a W hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CLO100 could do better for Platinum guests
First time visit, good location, arrived late so not sure how full the hotel was. Got one of tiniest rooms in a long time, and one that was facing the subway tracks so every few minutes heard the sound of the subway coming by. OK maybe we are spoiled as Platinum guests but believe the hotel could have done better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kpost Fabulous Staff!
W - Chicago City Center staff was excellent. My very early check-in was handled nicely. The bartender was knowledgeable and very friendly.
Be warned: The elevators are a little on the strange side.
The room met with my expectations. I do however, prefer a walk-in shower.
Overall: I will be staying here again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OldGuy123 Nicely Updated Hotel
The hotel has been nicely updated. Like other W's I have been in, a lot of the rooms are small, and the feel is sometimes a little more "hipster" than an older fellow like myself needs, but the people were great and the business facilities worked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by James09 stay at the W
This hotel is near the opera that we attended and also the train station. Cab service is not needed when we tay at the W. We like the hotel for its location especially in Winter. The hotel maintains a high standard and comfort. the staff is always friendly and helpful. Check in and checkout is very efficient.

The W is so beautiful and smells amazing. I could always spot the hotel from down the street, the building is lit up in purple. I thought the staff was super friendly except the front desk personnel. They were cold and lacked personality (very blank face). Other than that my stay was great :) Thanks W Hotel

Great hotel for a short weekend vacation. Always have been a fan of the W Hotels and this one met my expectations as well. Debated between this and the W Lakeshore in Chicago. Ended up staying here and was easily in walking distance to many area amenities. Will be trying the Lakeshore on my next visit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by sdatl Solid W property, but rooms vary a lot
As one of the older W properties, this was a refit of an older building, so expect the basic rooms to be rather small. I'd consider an upgrade if you have more than one person per room. Staff is very friendly and proactive and the front desk team was incredible.

We had a great time at the W. Eden Bernal, Concierge, made it a very special night for us. She helped with the flowers and setting up a manicure for my fiance. We celebrated our engagement and will be coming back for our next special occasion. Thank you so much for everything.

Rated 3 out of 5 by OK12 Needs improvement
The check-in & check-out personnel need to be better trained. There was a lot of confusion during these stages of the stay. Also, these persons don't make you feel welcomed, but it seems like they frustrated with the registration system, which shows in their interactions with customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent stay again!
This is the second time I have stayed at this location. I live in LA and travel through Chicago a few times a year and make a point to stay here. Super clean, amazing enviroment, awesome rooms, andd super friendly employees. Thank you for such a great experience. You never let me down.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chad W Chicago - good location, old building
This hotel is in a great location and service was impeccable. However, I was a bit disappointed in the small rooms. My room basically looked into a brick courtyard. Also no pool. I should have verified before booking, but assumed from staying at other W hotels that a pool is standard.
